Unfortunately not. Windows directs the sound always to one and only one output.

Believe me - I wish it would work!

How to troubleshoot sound cracking up windows xp?


Since you are using Windows xp don't see any problems with driver for the sound card, it is probably the speakers. have you try ear phones?
if it is still the same then the sound controller is defective. There is also the possibility that there is some corruption in the OS or virus infection.
If you can borrow or buy with intention to return a USB sound card that will give you some solution. I could give you more scenarios but i think this will give you an idea on what to do next.

I recently purchased bose multimedia speakers. I can plug the iPhone into the control and the sound is phenomenal. When I plug the USB into my laptop (HP6535b) the speakers install, but the sound is...


xp was never designed to do that ever. my guess... and is true in vast cases with XP , XP is DEAD, as will be getting new drivers for new devices, see?
When I plug the USB what does that mean.

all i can tell as would HP, take that USB thing above
go the the makers web site, see that software, there,
do they have XP software, NO.
i bet they do not support XP

not only that all said was,.
bose multimedia speakers.

what does that mean>/ its non specific so is useless. input
the only word there good id BOSE(tm)
they make lots of things, most things do not run on any XP
unless real lucky,

my guesss is the BOSE(tm) has its own sound chip
and needs its own SOUND chip driver to work
and if even you had that chip driver,
XP would get real confused having 2 sound chips in one PC
try this , go to DM , device manager,
and turn off the normal sound chip from HP.
on windows 10 we click the task bar speaker and kill the onboard sound chip that way, letting head phones USB work.
or USB external devices that have, 2nd chip.
see? running 2 chips at same time (sound) is never going to work
like having 2 TV's playing same time, chaos.

I have HP speakers that need to be installed to my computer. There is no disk. What should I do?


What windows OS are you running? XP, Vista, 7?
Typically you can add speakers with little to no effort. You will need to check the plugs on the speakers. Is it USB? or are they small 3.5mm jacks?
Usually speakers use 3.5mm jack and depending on the type of speakers they will have either 1 connector or 6 (for 5.1 surround sound)
Once you determine what connectors your speakers have, make sure you have the matching connectors on the back of the PC. These are usually colour coded Green (for a single 2.1 connection) or multiple colours for 5.1. USB is the small rectangular connector that is short and wide.
If you have the 3.5mm connectors, just plug them in to the back of your computer and plug the speakers in to a power source and they should begin working without drivers.
If you have the USB connection you will need to determine the model of the speakers and find the driver online: http://www8.hp.com/ca/en/support-drivers.html Install the driver and then plug in the USB connection and windows should automatically install.
You could also try to let Windows update find drivers online for you.
Hope this helps.

Good Morning. I've purchased kross bazooka thunder usb stereo speaker do I need to install a special driver or sound card and do you know what will work with windows xp. Thanks for your time.


If you have Win XP SP2 or higher you should be fine with just the USB speakers. When you plug them in the computer will tell you if it found the speakers and installed the driver for them. It will say equipment is installed and working or it will say equipment did not install properly if there is a problem.

XP laptop no longer recognizes any USB speakers, and internal speakers dont work. USB speakers do not appear in the audio controls. the only 'device' listed under Sound Playback is SoundMax Digital Audio,...


Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not.
You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem.
You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.

Connected to laptop with vista via USB connection to speakers - NO sound


A letter from Altec: E-mail from Altec Lansing explaining how to use the ACS 495 speakers with Windows XP and Vista: "These speakers require no special drivers or software to work properly. At the current time we do not have AMS software or an USB audio device driver compatible with Windows XP or Vista. There are no plans at this time to develop this software. Your speakers will work with Windows XP & Vista. Just make sure you use the audio cable from the back of the subwoofer to the audio or sound out port of your sound card. Do not use the USB cable. Sound does not come through the USB port The USB cable just allows you to use the AMS software. This software gives you some control over some of the sound features. The same functionality of the AMS software can be gotten by using the buttons on the speakers and the volume control software that comes with your Windows system. If you double click the speaker icon from the system tray, that will open this software up. With the USB connector removed or the computer turned off, STEREO or PRO LOGIC modes can be selected by depressing and holding the center control down for approximately three seconds. The mode selected will be indicated by the color of the LED on the front right speaker. When the light glows yellow it is in the STEREO mode. When the light is green it is in the PRO LOGIC mode."

How can I get my Harman Kardon Soundsticks 1 to work on my PC?


The USB version of the soundsticks was specifically designed for the mac and they worked just by plugging them in and then telling the system to use them instead of the analogue outputs. Unless someone has produced drivers for Windows XP for these speakers I think that you will probably not be able to use them.
