When I turn my speakers on for music...only part of the sound comes on. You can hear the music but when the singing comes on you can barely hear it.

This means that only one part of the sound is being transferred. Check the wire to check if its properly in. Also check if any wire is broken or loose. Check the power source too. ;)

The light wokes but the sound does not work

Do you have the speaker wires attached correctly? One should connect the left and right speakers, and the other should connect to the speaker audio port on your computer (should be the light green one).

My speakers no longer have sound, even though the green light is turned on and they are plugged in correctly

There could be several small annoyances happening here. The first thing I suggest is try hooking the speakers audio (green) cable to a different sound source, such as an MP3 player, or cd player, or a portable GPS. If any of those devices allow your speakers to produce sound, then the issue is NOT with the speakers, and you need to look at your audio drivers/settings. Make sure your audio driver is installed, and make sure your audio settings are not muted. You can call your pc manufacturer to get help in determining your driver status.

Plugged in to rear green port won't workwont

Make sure switch is on, try pluging it into an external MP3 player.
No sound would be coming from the speakers if nothing is playing on the computer also look at the computer volume as well as the speaker volume control.

Dell a215 computer speakers can't get sound but the green power light is on

Well i sometimes go through alot of troubleshooting just to find its the most simple thing in the end.

Start at the source. Check if the green audio cable is plugged into the correct audio jack on the pc. Colours match up. (green with green)
And if that doest work check that the Pc isnt on mute.

To check this, there is a icon of a speaker on the task bar on the bottom right of the screen.

And if all this has been done and u still have no sound, plugg the speakers into a ipod or a similar device to see that the speakers actually do work. turn the volume up and down as well.

Hope this helps :)

No sound from my dell vostro 200 at work...plugged speakers in green port ....when I hear sound it is very low.

Right Click on the speaker icon on your desktop in the lower right corner. Open volume mixer and slide bar upwards to increase the volume.

The power light is on,but there is no sound coming from my speakers

make sure that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN circle on the back of the machine, and make sure the volume controls in windows are turned all the way up, and mute is NOT checked. If that still does not work, hook the speakers up to an ipod, walkman, boombox, or anything with an earphone jack, and see if they play. If they work, then its a pc issue.

Seems to be no power to speakers.

Disconnect green speaker jack from computer and see if you get a green power light on speakers. If the speakers indicate they have power, your sound card or circuit is shorting out the speakers. If you still have no power to the speakers when disconnected from computer, then no green light means no power to speakers. Either you’re A.C. adaptor is bad or the speakers are shorted out. You have 2 options:
1) Replace A.C. adaptor.
2) Replace speakers.
If you buy new speakers, make sure that they have their own power source (A.C. adaptor).

Speakers work for just a second when windows starts up

Try to uninstall the sound card, shut your pc off, take the sound card off, attach it again and turn on the pc. Then reinstall the drivers and see whether the same problem occurs or not.
