Re: Installing speakers jbl

The red and white x indicates that your speaker is in mute mode. you just have to click that speaker icon and uncheck the mute. then you'll hear a music thats for sure.

No audio output device installed

If the speakers came with your computer check the Support link at the computer manufacturers website. If you bought them separately then you'll need to check the speaker manufacturers website to see if they have a Vista driver available. Hope this helps.
