Question about Bose Companion II Computer Speakers

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 ago.

The integrated sound of your MB has konked out. Thus it plays CD/DVD since its output must be connected directly to that port. Best will be to get a sound card(compatible with your OS) and insert it on any PCI slot and take all sound output from the sockets provided on the sound card...............sodeep

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.

Cant get speaker to work hear only static


First try to attach the speaker to another device, DV Player, Amp, Audio Receiver, etc. See if the set works on any other device and if they do; the problem is with the computer sound in or software that allows the speakers to generate sound-out. Check also that you have the computer set to play sound! Look at the speaker symbol at the lower right of the screen and it should indicate it is active. Right click and it should tell you if it 100%. Open the Volume Mixer and see if your speakers are recognized and set the Volume. Always make certain the speakers are attached to the proper GREEN in port on the sound section on the back-side of the computer. If you have more than one colored plugs, be certain to insert according to the color.

Itunes downloads jump is it a problem of computer


What you're describing sounds like it would be a problem with your media player, which in this case would be iTunes. Try playing music through another media player ( Like Windows Media Player ) and see if music still jumps. If it still does, then it's a computer issue, if it doesn't, it's just iTunes. The music jumping shouldn't have anything to do with your speakers.

Dell Inspiron 5150 not playing sound


Your speakers are frying, hence the crackling sound, as this is a frequent problem owing to the location of the speaker assemblies and the sound output in an area of the system where the ambient heat exhaust vents are located.

I am a bit confused, though, as to why you get no better sound through headphones or external speakers, since this is not usually the case in this frequently cited problem.

One possibility is that not only are the speakers, but the entire sound output assembly.

Warrantee work if available, if not try a shop where they also sell used Dell computers as they will have pulls that could cut your losses.
