Question about Altec Lansing VS4121 Speaker
I just recently moved, and my Altec Lansing VS4121 system worked fine. But now, when I turn it on, I hear a loud buzzing sound, then pop. It goes like this: buzz, pop, buzz, pop. It sounds like an electrical impulse, then a popping sound. If I put headphones into the jack on the speaker to control the sound, I can listen to music. But, without it in, all I get is that sound. Sounds like the system is getting intermittent power, but why would it work fine with headphones in? Please help me!

If removing and reinstalling the driver fixed your problem then there was nothing wrong with the speakes. There was probably a problem with your soundcard drivers.
That being said, you should double check that you speakers are plugged in to the right sound board connector and the power supply is plugged into the wall outlet.
Does you computer have a headphone jack? If it does, you might try plugging a headset into it to see if you can hear sound there. If you do then you'll know the soundboard is working properly and maybe the speakers really are part of the problem. CD/DVD drives usually have a headset jack, but this will only work if a cable was run inside the computer from the CD/DVD drive to either the soundboard or motherboard.
What kind of computer do you have? Do you know if you have on board sound or a seperate sound board?

It is unlikely that this is a problem with your speakers more likely that it is a problem with the DVD player itself. I would recomend trying another DVD player.

Umm, so what's the question? The sub COULD be damaged or it could be reacting to being overdriven. Sometimes resonances form due to room- or nearby surface interactions. Try moving the sub a foot or two in each direction. Or turn the bass down.
