First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

Make sure the plug is all the way in ! and that the power supply is OK if it is an external one

Open volume control.

If the volume contol on your computer is greyed out then you need to check the hardware from the control panel.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES

Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing
(nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

If you have any exclamation marks by any hardware you need to sort that out. (maybe drivers first)

It could be a power supply issue but the steps above will prove that or otherwise

The easiest thing to check is move the speaker connection to another port until you have tried them all. You can do this while the computer is on and an audio file is playing with no threat of harm to your computer.

If you have tried all the ports and get only a buzzing sound from each of them proceed with Bob's troubleshooting.

Many computers have an auto-sensing feature that tries to determine what has been plugged into an audio port. Unfortunately it does not always detect correctly and then sets the wrong settings. Moving the plug from port to port will almost always get around this problem.

Front inputs? (green and pink not working)


I thought the front was for a microphone and headset. I don't think those are speaker jacks. Look closely at the icon that is next to the pink and green on the front, does it show the icon of a microphone and headset?

Normally the speaker jack will show and arrow going out which means sound going out. If you look at the speaker port in the back of the computer it is normally the light green port. Notice the icon on it. Does the icon on the front look the same as the one on the back? Is the color on the front the same as the one on the back? I think you're plugging into the wrong port.

Make sure you have the volume up in your Audio/Sound properties and make sure you don't have the speakers on mute. Also make sure you turn the speakers on and turn the volume up on them.

I just bought logitech 5.1 surround sound speakers, but its making a buzzing noise how do i fix that please. could it be that my sound card is not good enough?


if you buy a 5.1 speaker you also need 5.1 sound card that supports the speakers. although it will still work with ordinary sound card but you can't actually use the feature of the speakers. the buzzing sound can cause by loose connections of the audio cable or audio connector. you can also hear a buzzing sound if you connect it at the wrong port. just remember the color codes
green - audio out (for speakers) red - microphone blue - line in or audio in black - digital audio

Your speakers must be plugged in green port of your sound card. Check if you don't have push mute button on the audio mixer from your taskbar.

Loud buzzing, but no sound


Sounds like they are plugged into the wrong port on your computer? You need to make sure they are plugged into the Green ringed port on your sound card.
Hope this helps

Brand New ACER H233h Monitor


Have you checked through the setup controls on the flat panel. I've seen a few that had the audio turned off by default. That is sometimes done because it generates static noice if there is no audio sourced coming through them.

may be you have not installed the audio drivers.... if not then so install it & then try it will work..
if it is installed then check whether the audio cable from speakers to the cpu is correctly connected to audio jack in the cpu..(u must connect to green audio port)
check whether the power supply of the speakers is given r not...
check whether the power button of the speaker is on ....

if the same problem persists then there may be miscontact inside the speaker (if the speaker is showing green light when it is on means then there is no power supply cable problem else there may be power supply cable problem try changing it )
else
may be the capacitor inside the speaker is gone
if the problem persists then
take the speakers to technician ....
