SOURCE: Iam unable to call my frends through yahoo messenger by using logitech usb type headphones on mythoshiba laptop

Go into your sound controls and disable any other playback/recording hardware besides the logitech headset. Yahoo will still mute the headset but you can put the volume back up and start using it. Cheap work around but it works for me. I found that when using the headset, yahoo was trying to use my onboard sound devices instead of the headset.

SOURCE: power surge on usb port

unless your a very competant motherboard components repairer.
this is beyond repair. i,d suggest taking it to a repair centre, where they will replace the motherboard. and unfortunately a large invoice to go with it. probably more cost effective to look at a replacement laptop.

Magicjack and a usb handset device from tigerjet are suddenly in my computer's speaker mixers. now I get no sound through my computers speaker, however that sound is coming through my telephone speaker...

I am assuming you are on a windows machine.

Right click on the speaker icon (volume control icon) normally located near the time lower right hand corner of the task bar. When you right click a sub-menu should pop up.

Select "Playback devices" and then select the "Speakers" option you wish the sound to play back on.

Hope this helps.

I cannot get sound from Insignia Speaker ND-POS20?

Speaker Placement Before shopping for speakers, try to imagine where you're going to put them in your room. Speakers can be placed on floor stands, hung on wall brackets, or placed on furniture. Subwoofers typically sound best in room corners or near the left- or right-front speakers.
The front three--left, center, and right--speakers usually sound best when positioned with their tweeters elevated to the same height as a seated listener's ears. In any case, try to keep the center speaker near the same height as the left and right speakers.
You can place speakers on shelves or on/in a low cabinet or entertainment center. Some speakers are better suited to this arrangement than others. "Acoustic suspension" sealed satellites are the most appropriate. Next best are ported speakers--as long as the ports are located on the front of the cabinet. However, speakers with rear-mounted ports won't perform at their peak when placed inside a piece of furniture.
As for the rear-channel surround speakers, they usually sound best when positioned three or more feet higher than the front speakers. However, high-fidelity DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD music will sound best when surround speakers are placed at the same height (ear level) as the front speakers.

1. Try looking in the taskbar of the Windows screen and selecting the volume control ( a speaker icon) check the mixer see if the volume is not muted or in the "0" position
2.Check the "input port on the sound card where you connected the new speaker assembly.
3. Check the volume control knob on the speaker assembly to see if it is not in the off or lowest volume position.
4. Check the new speaker by connecting them to another computer that has the sound already on and working this will let you know that the speaker assembly is good.
6. check the sound card drivers to the internal sound card that is on the mother board if this is where your sound card is located. Use the "manager" to see if it is working properly. If not then do a "reinstall of the sound card drivers or use the "update feature in the hardware window for the sound card to install the latest version of sound card drivers.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

In case anyone else has same problems go to the sound drop down from control panel. Make the usb speaker the default device and click the properties button. Under 'enhancements' make sure the 'disable enhancements' button is checked then click okay. Speaker should work.

Left speaker suddenly stopped working correctly.

check the plugin going into the back of the computer. it might be loose and only sending the audio to the right channel. Otherwise, check the connections in the back of the speaker.

My laptops speakers stopped working

Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
do this...

check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
Speaker Out.

If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.

Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.
