Hello Asconn

Bad board, inside of your speaker system, time to RMS or use the warranty, if you register your product, this could be easy.
Some boards , depending on energy at home voltage, etc, can be damage, and sometimes fried the board, for a energy fluctuation. Consider to use warranty, or RMS, in this case.

I just purchased Altec Lansing BX1220 speakers and I cannot get sound to come out. What do I need to do?

if they are usb powered, a light should come on on the spkr box with the controls on it, if it is powered by AC, make sure the wall wart is plugged in. If you are getting power to the speakers, try plugging in your mp3 player or some other device with headphone out jack. If the speaker work when you try that, the problem is in your computer and you should go to the sound section of control panel and open the "mixer" to see if sound is "muted", if it is, unmute it

How to connect

Check the wires.
One wire should end with a thin green pin.
Connect the green pin to the green socket on your computer.
If there is a black pin, you have a sub-woofer, and the black pin
connects to the black socket on one of the speakers.
Connect the wire with the 2-prong silver plug to AC power, e.g., to a power-bar.

Test the speakers.

NO Sound from NEW speaker unit?

Yes the green wire that goes from the speaker should be plugged into the green jack on the PC. An easy test to see if its the computer or the speakers is to have the speakers on and volume up a little and tap the tip of the green plug with your fingers while out of the computer. If it makes a humming or any noise at all while tapping, the speakers are working if not lets check voltage at the power plug or if the unit has any lights on. Gook luck!

Audio controller on XA2021 malfunction

These items are not serviceable. If your are electrically minded you could try to find an alternative part But the norm is to replace the whole set up. Or download a suitable software to control through the pre-amp in the computer - RealTek97
