Speakers stuck in diagnostic mode, know how to get them out of it?

The user manual states to plug the sound cables into the correct sound output jacks of the sound card of your computer to get the speakers to come out of diagnostic mode. I am guessing that once a signal is picked up on the audio cables that the speaker will switch modes.

I plugged my speakers into the back of my computer and I still cant get any sound. What should I do?

Verify that the speakers are plugged into the correct color coded plug in back. Verify that the speakers are plugged into a power source Verify that the speakers are on Verify that the speakers are turned up on the actual speakers Verify that your sound is not muted in windows (Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (vista) or just Sounds in XP > Adjust system volume. You can also try opening Windows Media Player and unmuting/turning volume up there. Try several files, mp3s, videos. make sure its working. If you still have no sound try updating the drivers for your sound card, you can figure out what type of sound card you have from the control panel, system, device manager, sound. then just go to that companys website and search for your card to download the latest.
If you do all of this you should have working sound... if you still dont then that would indicate the speakers or a cable is defective, you may want to do some trial and error with known good cables/speakers.

I just bought new speakers (logitech x-530) which is 5.1. sound only comes out of the front 2 speakers and the sub but not the back 2 and the centre. any ideas? computer specs are: motherboard - asus...

Sorry just doublechecked your board specs. Go to the sound properties in control panel. Click on the configure speakers option. If everything is plugged in right then windows should configure it for you to a 5.1 config. Hope this helps.

If not try and install the drivers for sound ,if the other speakers work ,try and check the compatibility of the speakers with he new system and windows vista.
The best thing is get in touch with the hardware vendor from whomsoever you bought this and they will let you know about the compatibility and if its the drivers and other support you can visit

Amplified Speaker System CA-3080 On But No Sound

Do you have a walkman, mp3 player, or any other portable stereo that you can test out the speakers?
This would be the 1st thing I would try. Place the plug that you would have normally going to your computer, and place it in the ear jack of the portable stereo or mp3 player. If you have sound, then I would make sure that your plug is in the correct jack in the back of the computer. Usually, the color of the jack is Green but that isn't written in stone. Just look for the speaker out or "out" where the sound card is located.
Try that and see if you get anything.
Get back and let me know and we can go from there.
Good luck.

Trouble with Speaker 5.1 +Vista + Asus P5k Motherboard. No Rear Speaker sound

Hi Perseo,

If you run through a speaker test in windows, and hear playback from all 5 speakers and the subwoofer, then your system is correctly connected, and working properly.

Vista uses a layered sound system that renders sound a bit differently than what you're used to on your previous system. As a result, it will most often refuse to project stereo sources in 5-channel surround, on it's own. it will just play them as stereo, and the bass will fill in whenever it can.

One possible way you could use to get around this, is to force the system to use all 5 speakers, through the driver. If you're using a realtek onboard card anything like mine (I have a p5k-VM board myself), this can be done by opening up the HD Audio Manager, and selecting the "Speaker Fill" option, under the Speaker Configuration" tab.

another option would be to load your media player you use to play music or movies, and see if there's an option to change speaker settings within the programs.

hope this helps!
