How do i get sound from my desktop without the use of computer speakers as i have seen some computers where sound is present from the desktop itself without the help of the monitor speakers or actual physical speakers. is there a card i need to install or a driver i need to install for this to take place?

Hi,

Sound is not possible without speakers and the Desktop that you might have seen, might have inbuilt speakers.

If you do not have, you need to purchase and install them. The inbuilt feature has been there in Few brands but not in HP or Dell as of now ( On most model's i have seen ).

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do accept the solution, if 100% satisfied from my service!!

Are this powered speakers connect to the same mains power socket as the computer.
If not you may be getting an earth loop which causes a humming sound.
Connect these speakers to the same power outlet, if you have not sufficient outlets use a power board.

My dvd writer cannot play dvd video and audio


If this is a Desktop computer it is in..
Make sure 1st it is recognised in "My computer" (icon present)
Check it will play / read other discs
Check the connectors (SATA or IDE) are plugged into the back of the DVD and the power rail is tight.
Also if there is a CD to Mobo lead from the back of the DVD make sure it is plugged in
If it spins the discs, and there is no rattling etc, the drive is probably working ok.
If you are trying to play movie DVD's, software such as Cyberlink or similar is required

If this is a laptop DVD, check it is seen in "my computer" (Icon present)
Check as for Desktop with regard to the correct DVD player software being present

Finally, check that you have the sound drivers installed (will show under the speaker icon in control panel). If still stuck, repost wioth more info

Why no sound from my speakers with Dell Dimension 2400, even though it's equipped for sound? Speakers worked fine plugged into Compaq.


Please try other speakers to make sure that it is in fact the computer and not the speaker port itself. If other speakers work, then it is most likely a driver problem. Try to find the drivers for your speakers and install them, restart, and reconnect your speakers. Good luck!

I request you to please send me a link to the driver download for Creative Desktop Speaker Inspire 2.1 2500. My email address is polestar_3000@yahoo.com. Thanks!


There are NO drivers for any desktop speakers, you only need drivers for your sound card. Your support page states this .....

Creative speakers do not need to be installed at all as they can be plugged in to a device and ready to be used straight away.
Desktop speakers are designed to function with most sound cards without the use of any drivers. As such, there are no drivers necessary for the speakers to function as they were designed. The sound card or audio device which the speakers are plugged into may require drivers and/or software to work. Ensure that your speaker is connected to your sound card's audio out and that your sound card is configured properly to output sound. Please contact the sound card manufacturer for driver availability.

My dell computer will not recognize the logitech speakers. I think it is something to do with the usb plug in versus a normal "jack" type plug in. I am using Vista as my OS>


Ok firstly make sure that the the speakers are connected to the green port at the back of the system tower. connect the usb cable to the usb port.

check with a headphone if there is sound . If sound is present then connect the speakers as above and then click start control panel - sounds - on this screen see if the speaker icon has a green check mark beside it , if not then click on the speakers and click use default device option present at the bottom of the screen. This should fix it.

In cases where the screen is greyed out .
strt - rgt click on computer - manage - device manager - audio device - chcek if ter is a yellow ! or red X beside it al;so check if you see other devices on screen
You could reinstall the audio drivers from the dell website support.dell.com for a DELL desktop . Reinstalling audio drivers should fix it.

try using the speaker on other system .

Hope its informative :)

My subvoofer burs


Induced noise - running signal wire too close to electrical cables.

Faulty/damaged Input reciever (jack) on subwoofer - test by isolating PC, and attaching iPod or other device to check for noise instead.

If the noise is not present when using the isolated source, your sound card output jack is bad, or the soundcard itself.

Thank you for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.
