Try and change the drivers for your sound update them then see if it improves. If that dont work the only easy solution for you ie; if you dont want to get inside it and check the sound system or replace it is to buy those external speakers and use them.

My speakers isnt working anymore i dont know why tha lights are going on everything seems 2 be fine before when i touched tha 3.5mm jack it made a strange sound that how i know it was working but now it...

This article contains tips for resolving sound related issues in Windows XP.
No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

In xp go to control panel>sounds and audio devices>audio (tab) then change the default and check use only default or uncheck it and it should allow both to work, I'm unsure exactly how to do it on vista because i don't have a copy of vista to tinker with right now.

Compaq Presario v2000 ALTEC LANSING speakers not working

Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

Please remember to rate this solution.

Good Morning
If you set the volume up, and there is a problem with audio, I recomend,
1) reconnect your speakers and press well the conector, (green)
2) see if sound came from output connector using a headset.
3) buy new speakers.
depending on the model of your current spk. check one from creative, they have some good Spk. that work fine for years.

Speaker problem

Hello Bmistyred
Happy Holidays
well, it is a sub problem, if you has warranty, use the RMS system, or change the sub. If has internal schematics, you can repair it, yourself, it is a resistant or some boards have a FUSE inside.

Connection to Laptop

Since the majority of laptops do not have multiple sound outputs you will need to buy a couple of headphone splitters. Plug the first Y splitter into the laptop headphone port and plug one of the input cables going to the speakers in one arm of the Y. Next, plug another Y splitter in the remaining arm of the first Y. This will provide you with the other two inputs that you need. Plug the remaining speaker cables into the other Y arms. From there it is simply controlling the speakers using the laptop volume and/or the speakers volume. You will not have fader control on a 3.1 or 5.1 speaker system but it will give you what you are looking for. I have this same configuration at my office using an IBM laptop and a 5.1 surround sound system. Good luck. JC
