Subwoofer makes a sound at computer startup

When i turn on my pc, there is a crackly sound from the subfoofer - even though i haven't even turned on the speakers yet. How is this possible and will this (electric shock?) damage the subwoofer?

    Thanks for your quick reply! But, this means that i always have to switch on the speakers, even if i wouldn't need them. Seems strange...

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

I plugged in my Altec AP3 Speakers to my computer running windows 7. It does not play. i get sound directly from my PC (it had sound prior to plugging in speakers) however the Altec speakers have no sound


Hello
You haven't specified from which computer source you connects this device with. If it is from the audio out socket of the PC, your PC's audio card [or onboard audio] dirive hasn't been installed yet. Unlike WinXP, Win-7 haven't all driver software in its driver cab when it is installed. If onboard sound should energize, the mother board CD should be loaded. There is audio and video drive [normally NVIDIA] drive should be installed. Anyway, you have to install the dirve. Now it disabled. Go to the hardware confujuration of your system, and look whether onboard audio is disabled. If it is disabled, inable it. If there is no driver installed to it, the system will ask CD. Then insert the CD into the CD tray, and follow the instructions. If your Win-7 is registered, you can get diretly into Microsoft site, and can download the driver needed. OK.

How to connect the gemini to the computer


Easy.

In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

The Gemini's Input would accept the Green stereo audio or speaker output from a standard PC, once adapted. Select Line In.

http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a04/fa/r2/subwoofers-as-home-entertainment-set-1.1-800X800.jpg

The Gemini's Output (Record Master) would perform similarly if adapted to your PC's audio input, whatever that may turn out to be (usually Mic, maybe Line In).

Find your PC's Sound Controls and enable the applicable input. make sure the volumes of both Inputs and Outputs are turned up.

Though not applicable to theGemini, more-advanced sound cards and audio hardware would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

My subwoofer is making a humming noise even though the satellite control is turned off. If I turn it on it makes a terrible noise. My computer icon says speakers are 34%. I just got this system yesterday...


Be sure that your plugs are in the correct port and fully seated. Try readjusting the system volume and adjustment on the speakers, if either is at extreme, overamplification happens....

My toshiba satellite A355D touch pad is not working. my husband told me that probably my kid turned it off. if that is the case... how can i turn it on?


Sounds like your touch pad may need to be replaced.You can't really turn off the touch pad.Even if your child managed to uninstall the touch pad it would load back the drivers at next startup.Chances are the touch pad will have to be replaced.Its possible the touch pad may be disconnected from the motherboard but not very likely though.

The computer can't hibernate when conected with


1st, I would turn off the screen saver and make sure it's not interfering.

2nd, would see if there where any updates on your manufacturers site for any hardware in your computer.

3rd, I would go into msconfig and disable all startup items, restart computer and see if that helps and maybe something running in the background is interfering

Please let me know if any of that makes a difference.

It sounds like you are having startup issues even though you hear it coming on. Sometimes when u have viruses and such you see major hardware inconsistence. My advice download this Free home edition anti-virus AVAST, once you install it will automatically prompt you to do a Boot time scan, which will scan your entire computer for infections at the start-up. That should most likely fix your problem.

make sure to let me know

Loud steady sound when turned on


If it's a humming noise you are describing, then it may be that one of the power supply filter capacitors has failed. Of course it could be some other sort of power supply problem as well.
