    Just bought an Acer desktop and cannot get the speakers to work. I tried different speakers with same results, so the problem is the PC. I also checked all the software set-up menus and no solution.

    I've tried two sets of speakers in my new Acer Aspire model computer with no luck. Plugged in to every jack of every colour, triple checked all the Control Panel options so everything is ON, and speakers test as "OK" but nothing else happens. What happens now?

The ONLY way I have been able to get them to work is to put the USB for it in the front as well as the colored plug.

Hi, Most recent desktop computers have speaker jack/connectors at the front and at the rear but only one will work at a time. If you have verified that your speakers work, you may need to try connecting it to the other jack othern than where it is connected now. If your PC is a laptop, check if there is a mechanical volume control other than the desktop slider. Pls post back with your computer model. Good luck and kind regards.

Make sure the cable is all the way in and that your using the right jack. The green jack is usually the correct one. Make sure any other speaker wires are hooked up properly.

Flat screen monitor

First, make sure that you have all the necessary cables connected, then make sure that they are all connected properly and tightly. Also, make sure that your computer is set to output to the correct output. If that doesn't work, then the speakers are probably broken. That's the exact reason why you don't buy stuff from pawn shops. Cheap, but crappy.

If your monitor have inbuilt speaker, then you need not to plug it, because the monitor cable will work for that. I have ViewSonic 19" with inbuilt speaker and its working without any extra cable or connection.

No sound

Happy holidays to you all
well, I have known that ACERS computers, have problems with boards (onboard sound) many on laptops, I suggest if you guys have warranty yet, uset, and change for another . option 1, ...option 2, if your PC, have slot for an audio card, buy a new one, and solve the issue, if you got a laptop, buy a PCMCIA from any computer store, brands from Creative labs, in usb or pcmcia , may solve this.
