Question about Polk Audio M3 Speaker

1 Answer

Computer stopped recognizing the speakers

I've had my speakers for 3 months and they've worked fine. Then a week ago they just suddenly completely stopped working. I can't even hear it w/ headphones. I've made sure that volume control settings are fine and that mute is unchecked. When I checked the Sound and Volume Settings on my Control Panel, the speakers listed were the old ones I had before these speakers. I've checked all the connections and tried unplugging the speakers multiple times, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My computer stopped recognizing my speakers one day for no apparent reason...the volume button does not appear on my toolbar, and the control panel shows no speakers connected. I have tried unplugging them & also restarting the computer to no avail. HELP!!!

Onn Wireless Mouse has stopped working. What do I do?

Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.

I made sure my headphones were on.

I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.

The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.

When it was complete....both played nicely more problems.

You can try booting a live linux CD or thumbdrive and see if that gives you sound. That will give you an idea if it's Windows or a hardware problem. If it's a windows problem try uninstalling and reinstalling your drivers. If that doesn't work keep searching around or just try a fresh install of windows.

I've had my my Logitech speakers for a few months now and they've worked fine up until a few weeks ago. Now if I turn the volume up more than a quarter of the way the sound goes scratchy and...

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps
