    Is it your speakers? Or did you just get the sound card and now it's not working? Make sure the speakers are plugged into the GREEN output on the audio card, also make sure your PC sees it in the device manager. If not, you may just need to disable your on-board sound card in the bios, and install your drivers again for your sound card. But it should be listed in you device manager before you check anything else.

Can i add Cyber Acoustics 2.1 3-Piece Computer Speaker System with Subwoofer to my tv using roku3?


You can't use 2 different speaker systems connected to one device output.
You could connect the CA speakers connected to your Roku and improve your TV sound. You could also use your microlab speakers connected to your computer to augment your computer based audio.

I have a tv screen that i use to play x box,watch movies and use it for a computer but there is no sound on the computer


That sounds like a computer problem, not an Xbox or screen problem. There may be no sound on the computer because it is aware that you are running the sound to another device like external speakers or the speakers in the TV if there are any. There may be a setting in the software of your computers that allows for sound to come out both the computers speakers and any speaker device the computer is feeding sound to.

How to use speaker in computer?


Does your motherboard has an onboard sound card? If it has then read your motherboard manual especially the audio section of the manual where the topic is described how and where to plug in which audio jacks coming out from you speakers (speaker system) to which part of the external audio ports usually located at the rear end of your computer case. You need to install the sound card drivers to activate audio properties of your computer of course, to actually use the speakers.
You can also use the front panel audio port of your computer case where you can connect your speakers to as well.
In case your motherboard did not come up with sound card installed you can always install an external sound card and then connect the speakers to the proper external audio ports of the card. Just read your motherboard or sound card manual. It is all there.

I have HP GM325AA speakers and I'm using Toshiba Virtual Sound when playing music. Sound does not come out of the left speaker when I use the Toshiba Virtual Sound. Is there a way to fix this?


try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps don

Trying to connect BA735 speakers to a MacBook? No sound? Are they compatible?


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

Can i use my boston 5.1 speakers with a powered sub with my new computer system.it used soundblaster software?


The speakers themselves don't care what you have them connected to. They just take an audio input from the computer, which is a function of the computer's sound card and drivers. As long as the computer hardware is working properly, the speakers will too.

There is one possible problem, though. If these speakers came with your computer as part of a Gateway system package several years ago, they may be a digital-input version only. Gateway supplied these speakers and a Creative Soundblaster card that had a digital output was installed in the computer. The way to tell on your speakers is to look at the plug on the end of the cable. Which of the two below looks like yours?

pgh_pa_guy_6.jpg

If it's the one on the left, you can use the speakers with any analog sound source (computer, iPod, etc.). But if looks like the one on the right (a mono plug), you have the digital speakers. Unless the sound card in your new computer has digital output available, the speakers won't work. In the past, I was able to put the original sound card and drivers into someone's new computer and it worked, but the original software is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7.

Hope this helps you get it figured out. Thanks for using Fixya!

I don't know what is the operating system you are using with your computer.Still we can check, first we need to find out if the problem is with the speaker or with the computer.

Try these steps
  • connect those speakers with other computer check the sound, if you are getting sound there it means speakers are ok need to check computer audio setup and hardware.
  • If you are not getting any sound connecting speakers with other computer then it is speakers need to replace.

Incase speakers are ok Disconnect the speakers

  • restart the computer,check if there is windows sound if not
  • right click on the volume control icon on the left hand button corner of the screen,uncheck the mute option.still not getting any sound?
  • try to download the audio driver from the dell support site.still not getting
  • need to check the internal speaker connection,if it is fine
  • go to this website http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and click on Restore sound -windows Audio service and run the tweak,YOU NEED TO USE INTERNET EXPLORER
  • still you cannot hear the sound change the internal speaker.

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.
