Re: sound issues

You need to check that all the speakers wires are connected! It might be due to improper connections! This cause an resistance! And hence due to this the sound may be less or distorted. Check all the connections!

Toshiiba satellite p205 Internal Harmon Kardon Speakers Do Not Work

Most likely its a nardware problem.
If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty.
If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.

Hi. Today I bought a 3 foot audio y-cable and an RCA (Phono) Female to RCA (Phoneo) Female cable so that I could hook up these two speakers that I have that belong to a predisian sound system (boom box)...

All you need to do is get a USB based sound adapter 16/32BIT MINIMUM to plug your speakers straight into your laptop with better sound. Many laptops will have limited sound OUTPUT which places large limitations on pushing sound through your nice speakers. You already know the problem is not the speakers or new cables, therefore you know that problem has been isolated to your laptop. You may also check the volume settings in the laptop to ensure your running the highest possible BIT or volume enhacement software. Let me know if this does the trick for you.

Computer speakers play CDs or iTuners, but no system sounds or online sounds. Computer does not recognize that speakers are attached, so I can't adjust volume. Everything worked normally several months...

this is an issue with your soundcard. the easiest thing for you to do would be to go and pick up a cheap internal soundcard ($10 - $200) and just use it instead.

Constant loud muffled noise coming from the sub and speakers.

Try playing with the connection, sounds to me maybe the jack is going bad or has a shorted connection. Plug it in and out slowly to see if that's the issue.

Logitech R-10 speakers sound problem

in control panel, go to hardware and sound, click on realtech audio manager with your logitech speakers plugged in, and then you should be able to chose your speaker configuration. If that doesn't work, try going to sound, and configuring your speaker setup there. Realtech has different settings you can click on, including volume, as well as various equalizer settings which you choose if you want to sound like you are in a sadium, bathtub, etc.

Loud and strange noises

The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.
