Re: connect speakers

Most of the time it's a green color jack. if not it should have a headphone by it. If you have tryed more then one set of speakers, Then try this plug the power to the speaker in to the wall and power the spearkers on turn the Volume up and tap your finger on the spearker jack it the speakers make a sound then the speakers are good if not if could be the speakers. If the speakers are good then try going to Control Panel click on Sound and Audio Devices. in the Volume tab make sure Mute is not checked and the Volume it on High. If Mute is not checked and the Volume in on high it couold be a driver. Try clicking on the Audio Tab next and make sure you sound card it selected in the frist box aka the Sound playback box most likey you sound card will have smothing to do with AC' 97. Next click on the Volume buttion and turn all the volumes all the way up see if this helps fix it. if not next we go back to Control Panel click on System click on Hardware tab then click Device Manager when it opens find a plus tabe that says Sound, video and game controllers click on the Plus sing if there's a big yellow circle with an exclamation point in it you may need to reinstall your drivers. Try clicking on the Troubleshoot frist see if it can help if not find your computer drivers on your disk or your computer maker web-site and download the drivers install them and see if this fixes your issues

Re: connect speakers

What concerns me is that you have tried other speakers with no success... need to know what kind of computer you have?? Would also be helpfull to know if you have intergrated audio or if you have a sound card installed.
If it is intergrated audio, you usually will find three jacks in a row. Blue, Green and Pink. But sometimes they aren't colored at all.
Now if other speaker didnt work, were they "powered speakers"? Meaning, did you plug them into the wall first? Also, need to check and make sure your audio driver is installed. What windows are you running?

How do i hookup the what i think is the power cord to the computer its a round plug in

If it's a power cord, it doesn't plug into the computer; one end goes in the wall, the other into the speakers.

For most speaker pairs, there are 3 wires:
1) The wire that connects the speakers to each other. That's often fused into the back of the left speaker, and gets plugged into the right speaker (it's usually pretty well marked where to plug it in).
2) The wire that connects the right speaker to the computer. Usually it's pretty well marked where to plug this into the speaker. On the computer, that wire will fit into 2 ports. Usually those ports are marked with microphone and headphone icons. You want the headphone jack. If they aren't marked, try them both or check your manual.
3) The power cord. One end of that will plug into an electric outlet on the wall (or into an extension cord or power strip). The other end will plug into the right speaker; it should only fit into one hole (which will probably be marked with "12V" or "0.5A" or something like that).

It would help if you told us what kind of speakers you have, and what kind of wires you're seeing.

My Logitech computer speakers are playing distorted sound. Also notice that the green power light is dim and wavering.

Could be the outlet, or the power strip if it is on one. would try a new outlet in a different room. return the speakers if this does not work.

Hook your green and orange wires off the speakers into green and orange inputs on the back of your tower. Hook the round black cable off the a/c adaptor plug into the black input on the back of the right speaker. Then plug into an outlet. There is no software for these speakers.

I have a hp key board with speaker controls on it. I can't tell if it on or off but I get no sound from my speakers. The speaker wire is going in the mic outlet on my tower

Hi! is there another similar socket near to the mic one? maybe coloured green. Mic is short for microphone so is not the correct one to plug your speakers into. Usually there are 3 sockets in a row and the speaker one is furthest from the mic one. Regards, Nicam

Speakers don't work on new computer

its most likely a driver issue make sure that when they get plugged in there is some sort of conformation either on the computer or on the speakers with a light now thats you have ensured they are getting power check both ends of the speaker wire ensure neither the wire or the inputs for the wire are damaged there should be little or no play for the wire to move after being inserted . after ensuring that it not a hardware issue(to really be thorough you could hook them up to another computer and make sure after the moving process they still work) I would suggest going to the HP website and walking through they're troubleshooting mnual if still to no avail and they are under warranty just return them for new ones

Polk speakers with Windows Vista don't work

I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the
speakers produce sound, the problem is probably
with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard
installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound
card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your
soundcard or media player software and keyboard.
Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the
plugs are securely connected in the proper location
according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th
front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire
with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker
terminal on the subwoofer.

Speakers not working, but cables all plugged in...

You might have to reinstall the software that came with the speakers since you had to wipe your computer clean when the virus was on there. The speakers will not work until the software is installed back on your computer.
