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

Re: harmon/kardon speaker problems

Go to device manager and see if they are listed.
If there is a yellow or red mark there the driver needs reinstalling or installing

Can't get a Sony Data Projector CX21 to work with my Toshiba Laptop (harman/kardon model) It is compatible with DDC2B. Have the 15 pin cord between the two. Turn projector on then computer and...

Ok... first off... the Harmon/Kardon isn't the model for the Laptop.... it's the type of speakers you have... Great sound for a laptop... but still that refers to the speakers... people have problems with these things... I had to trouble shoot this all the time at my high school... Try going into the display properties and trying to add it as another monitor... (this may even work better for you then having to use the one screen)...
