Harmon/kardon speaker problems

These are the speakers that came with my HP a620n desktop. They have always worked without any problems until now. I recently had to restore my computer to an earlier time and then I had to do a complete restore which lost alot of my settings and files. After this was performed I noticed that my speakers stopped working. They're not broken I just can't get any sound out of them. They are getting power and pop when I plug them in to the AC outlet. What do I do? Do I unplug everything in the back of my pc and then plug them in? Please help. Thanks, Jason H

Question on allowable use

Hi sheawm. You can use your speakers as long they have the mini-plug connector such as ipods, blackberrys, laptops, desktops, etc. so it won´t matter. I hope this helps.

Harmon/kardon computer speakers not working, light on, no sound

Hello frostyscoppe & micoh luv. I'm sorry to say that (like mine) they may have just 'packed in'! I had the same problem and contacted Harmon Kardon directly, They said there was a circuitry problem that couldn't be repaired and suggested I get the latest HK IIs. So I did and found these to be much more versatile and worth upgrading to. I thought my 'old' HDs were fine but sadly things aren't made to last like they used to be!!! If someone else is able to 'rescue' your originals I'd be very interested to hear their suggestions.
