Question about Creative Labs I-Trigue 2.1 3300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

No Sound We have a system running on Windows XP that we just recently hooked up the Speaker System to after 4 years. When they are plugged in, I know there is power because we can hear the woofer 'pop'. There is absolutely no sound from computer chimes, a music CD in the drive or from online Sirius. Could we have lost something within the computer that is needed for sound? How can we check? Been thru the System stuff and nothing has any ! marks for warning signs of hardware not working.

Re: No Sound

Make sure you plug into the GREEN speaker port on the PC.If using a digital connection,try going back to analog.The difference is almost non-existent,and much less hassle.

I inherited old Altec Lansing ADA 745 speaker/sub woofer. They once worked beautifully with older desktop (XP Operating) and newer laptop with Vista operating system. Now, I only get the lowest volume...

If it works on another computer without any problem, then problem might not be with your speaker, it must be with the computer's probably with sound settings. I think it was working with your windows XP running desktop and your other laptop, but it doesn't work with another (new) computer. If so, could you please let me know the model and make of your new computer with the operating system installed on it? If the sound card on your new computer is onboard, then I will be able to find out the details about the sound card and it's related software and I would check out it's settings/features. But if in case the sound card's purchased separately and you installed it, then I would need that sound card details.

If my assumption is wrong and your problem is with your speaker, then I won't recommend you to get it repaired. If it's a new item and you still have the warranty unexpired, then that's another case, and so this would be your time to use the Warranty.

Let me know with the details mentioned above.

Computer won't allow sound through the speaker


It is important to note the several components (Both hardware and software) must be properly installed and configured for the Sound Subsystem to work properly. I will attempt to list some of the major areas of concern and hopefully point you in the right direction (I am assuming that your system is less then 3 years old and that you are running Windows XP, much of this will apply to Windows 7 as well).

It is important to note that you should be able to hear sounds from your computer’s speaker – this is where I would begin trouble shooting.

  1. First, ensure that your sound logic is not ‘muted’.

  1. The PC Sound Logic must be properly recognized by the ‘Plug and Play’ Subsystem of the CPU/Mother Board to function correctly.

  1. If the “Sound, Video and Game Controllers” area is empty, then most likely your problem is that your system does not have the correct ‘device drivers’ for the Sound Logic that is installed.

  1. If the Plug and Play Subsystem has properly indentified and installed each of the “Sound, Video and Game Controllers” modules, then test the functionally by going to the

If you do not hear anything and you have confirmed that Mute is not selected and the sound level is high, then:

1. Confirm that you are using the latest device drivers.
2. Go into Device Manager and delete all of the components under the “Sound and Audio Devices” Icon.
3. Reboot your system and allow the Plug and Play Subsystem to rediscover and install each of the sound components.
4. Confirm that all of the Sound components are installed.
5. Retest your Sound Subsystem by using Step #4 above.

If the problem persists, then it is time to suspect the possibility of faulty hardware or a faulty Mother Board.

I hope this helps,

I recently got a new computer & it has windows

If there is not a dedicated port for the sub, you are out of luck. Unless - the MLI sub can serve as the splitter

Need driver for insignia computer speakers (running Windows XP)

You don't need a driver for speakers. Plug them into the green receptor on your sound card or your sound port on your motherboard.

Speaker won't work

First things First:
1) check your connectors back on the PC, I presume you use windows XP and sound drivers installed **
2) plug the speakers cable on back or front of your PC in the green (usually) connector.
3) see if sound is NOT mute on mixer , multimedia in control panel.**
4) If you can Enter your BIOS, try to enable sound, for onboard sound, if apply**
good Luck

Speakers are not being recognised

i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck

Both right speakers not working

Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.
