I reassembled it because the speakers on the left side weren't working, so i fixed that problem, but now it won't turn on at all.. when i connect it to the computer and hold the power button it turns off so it isn't the inside is it in pause, reset mode or something?

Hello Check the speaker of the right side first for damage. Connect it to left side and listen whether it works or not. If it works with left side, make sure that the audio output section circuit to the left side inside your amp has damaged and should be replaced. If the speker does not works with connecting it to the right side, make sure that the speaker has damaged. OK.
Remove the Dell A215 speakers from the box. Place the speakers in your computer
area. The speaker with the volume knob is the right speaker and should
sit to the right of your keyboard. Place the other speaker to the left
of your keyboard.
the left speaker into the right speaker. The left unit has an
orange-brown plug that connects to a similarly colored port on the back
of the right unit. The other end of the cord is fixed to the rear of
the left speaker.
the two-prong end of the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Plug
the other end into the black power port on the back of the right
the main audio cable into your computer. This cable is fixed to the
back of the right speaker and has a green head. Plug the green
connector to the green audio-out port on your computer. This port may
be on the front or back of desktops or on either side of a laptop.
the knob on the right speaker clockwise to turn the speakers on and
increase the volume. Turn it counterclockwise to lower the volume
partially or all the way to turn the speakers off. The speakers should
work automatically on any computer with a sound card.
Let me know if this solved the problem and good luck..
if you swap the speakers and the dead one moves,than it is the amp that is missing a channel,in your case,it is the speaker.
if you try the good speaker in both speaker outputs,it should work on both to confirm the dead speaker theory.
there may be a broken wire in the speaker from shipping.
Take no offense but after 8 years, you got your moneys worth. Unless you're good with the soldering iron and schematics, call it a great investment and update your speaker system. I imagine your computer is newer than the speakers and you can take advantage of some 5.1 surround sound! It's really great if you do any gaming,too.
Since you'll probably be getting rid of them anyway, you might want to crack it open and see if there's any loose wiring that can be fixed.
Thanks for using Fixya.com. Please rate this tip accordingly. I wish there was a better solution but I usually get 5 years out of mine so I feel jealous. :-)
Same issue showed up for me today very randomly...
HD comes on and off for no reason and sound cuts in and out. This fix worked for me:
1.Disconnect the left speaker from the sub woofer. 2.Take the 4 screws out on the bottom of the left speaker. (They are under the rubber matting you can just poke holes through it) 3. Remove the bottom plastic assembly from the speaker 4. Cut the 4 wires to the headset chip. Careful not to cut any others to the speakers themselves! 5. Unscrew and remove headset plug chip 6. Reassemble and plug left speaker back into sub woofer.
