Re: computer speakers

Are you sure your in the right slot with the speaker wire at the back of your PC it is the green imput. Make sure that the speakers are pluged in if there is a plug for them.
Sorry for sounding a bit basic I'm sure you have already checked these but sometimes people forget.

The volume may be turned off on the status bar at the bottom left of you destop. This is a small speaker double click it and check that the volume is not turned off.

there is no drivers ar anything for the actual speakers unless there is a problem with the sound card in your Dell.

Will you just check that all the wiring is correct and I will guide you through the trouble shooting to see is there anything wrong in the drivers if everthing is ok wiring wise.

I need to install it to my compaq presario

Plug it into the audio output jack on the back of your Presario. There are probably 3 jacks that look like headphone jacks; use the green one. Don't forget to power on your speakers and ensure that the audio driver on the Presario is installed correctly.

Speakers/Audio problem

This isn't going to have anything to do with your speakers. It will be something in your system settings that deals with Internet or Video. Check your Sound card selections and your equalizer settings to make sure you don't have it muted somehow.

Speakers not working

I have the same problem with pluggng speakers into dell computer. I see on the dell there is no provision to get power to the speakers as there was on the presario. There is a power (12V) wire that does not have a place to go into on the dell.
