You may not have the correct sound card drivers installed. When you go to Device manage do you see any yellow exclamation points on any of your devices? To get to Device Manager in XP right click on the my computer icon and then select properties then the Hardware tab. You can try using Windows update to see if it can find the drivers, just choose custom instead of express when asked. See if it shows any hardware drivers when it gets done. The other method is to try the manufacturer's website.
If this does not work then post back what model computer or sound card you have and we can troubleshoot further.

How to use speaker in computer?


Does your motherboard has an onboard sound card? If it has then read your motherboard manual especially the audio section of the manual where the topic is described how and where to plug in which audio jacks coming out from you speakers (speaker system) to which part of the external audio ports usually located at the rear end of your computer case. You need to install the sound card drivers to activate audio properties of your computer of course, to actually use the speakers.
You can also use the front panel audio port of your computer case where you can connect your speakers to as well.
In case your motherboard did not come up with sound card installed you can always install an external sound card and then connect the speakers to the proper external audio ports of the card. Just read your motherboard or sound card manual. It is all there.

The speaker are plugged in but the computer does not seem to recognize that they are. It also says there is no audio device and no drivers are installed


Means windows cannot find your sound card and has not installed drivers for it. Thus no sound.
Need to reinstall sound card drivers.
First check if hardware / device manager shows error state for sound card. ie yellow circle with exclamation mark. If so delete those drivers and restart to reinstall. If you're lucky it will install correctly next time. Otherwise you need to install drivers yourselves from m/b or sound card driver CD

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

Speakers are plugged in properly but won't work


Hi Rachelle,

First of all, make sure that the sound is not accidentally muted.

If the sounds seem to play, it means that your speaker cables are faulty or have some kind of break in them. Or, your speakers or the electronics inside them developed some kind of fault.

Unplug the speakers and the speaker cables and test them on another computer. If they work fine on another computer, the problem could be your sound drivers. You could also test the sounds, using a headphone in place of the speakers. If you can hear the sounds fine with the headphones, the problem is with the speakers or the cables.

This may be less likely since the sounds seem to play, but it's still possible that your sound driver is incorrect or not the one meant for your sound card.

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and under the "Sound, video and game controllers", see that the sound driver is listed.

Double click the item in that list that contains the word "audio device" in its name. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the laptop manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, sound still can't be heard, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Install cd for monsoon


What makes you think you need special drivers for your Monsoon speakers? Do other speakers work properly when hooked up to your PC? Borrow a pair from somebody else if you don't have any other speakers you can try, and check. If they don't work either, Monsoon drivers are not your problem. I'm not saying nobody ever needs drivers for speakers to work with a computer, but normally, drivers for the speakers are not the issue if you're not getting sound through them.

The sound card driver and sound settings in BIOS, sound settings in Windows and for the sound card, and physical issues about the way the speakers are hooked up or whether the speakers themselves are functional are much more common sources of trouble than drivers for the speakers.

Start your troubleshooting process with this webpage:

If that one doesn't seem to address your issue, try websearching for other options with a phrase such as: troubleshoot no sound PC speakers.

Logitech z-340 speakers


These speakers just plug into your sound output mini-jack. No "speaker" driver is required, just drivers for your sound card. I'll bet those are already installed.

Sound from aspire l3600


First thing I would check is if the driver for the speakers is installed , in windows right click on my computer , select hardware then device manager go to sound and see if there is a question mark or an x next to the speakers . If there is you need the driver for the speakers . If the driver is installed then make sure the speakers are plugged into the correct spot in the back of the computer and the sound card is installed correctly . Let me know if that fixes the problem for you

I can't seem to get my cyberacoustics to work (Speakers)


Hi, Perhaps the beeping sound you hear at start up is the internal speaker directly connected to the motherboard. If you Device Manager or your Control Panel/Sound & Audio Devices Properties/Audio tells you that nu such device is installed, what you need to do is re-install the necessary drivers. To confirm if the sound card is there/working but need drivers, go to your Device Manager, a yellow marked "!" will indicate that that component need drivers/re-installing. Post back with your motherboard brand/model that we may look for drivers or use the original motherboard CD installers. Good luck and kind regards.

Forced 2.1 sorround sound on 5.1 surround sound


Swap the inputs around see what happens Whether or not the out put is 2.1 or 5.1 has to be the nature of the signal going into the master unit So have you got the sound card set up right- check sound card software. Also check the Computer MoBo manual is there a BIOS setting that needs changing? Also contact the makers website Tech Help if the manual is of no help. take a look here http://www.fixya.com/support/p39860-cyber_acoustics_ca_5001_computer
