Sir i am getting sound fluctuation in my creative hometheater when i listen music

Please check your connections, shut down the system and recheck - DO not try with the system working.
If the fault persists then this can be due to fault in the main board, possible dry soldering on the drivers, possible weakness of capacitors or preamps.
need to open to confirm but if within warranty you must register a complaint.

My speakerset goes dead every time I try to listen to some music. It just turns off and I can't get it back on(like it has no eletricity). Then after a while(seconds, sometimes minutes) it turns on again,...

It is more likely a setting --either in Windows itself-- Windows Media Player-- or your soundcard controls.
I've had that set for 2-3 years -- every time it was a software issue.
They are great speakers.

Not getting deteected

Speakers do not get detected, they only produce sound when you play any. Reboot the PC or laptop and on shutting down and startup Windows plays its own sound. That should come through these speakers. Now go to the Sound option by clicking open the Volume icon in the system tray and check and make sure that nothing is muted by Windows. And listen to your favorite music as these are good quality speakers.

The speakers wil not play on the background and the center.

If you connected to a 5.1 surround card and checked and they are connected ok you can hear all the speakers when you play music, movies that are in 5.1 format only. If you want to hear also all of them if you listen to stereo movies/music you must set the sound card to emulate multi channel. Also the player you use to listen music/wath movies must be set to 5.1 and must accept Dolby Digital/ DTS decoding if your sound card doesn't(eg. VLC media player-has integrated DD and DTS decoding and codecs for all tipes/formats).

They automatically turn off

That sounds like the action of a thermal shutoff. If present, these can turn off either the input to the amplifier or the entire power supply if the unit has been driven at high levels.
If you have not had it 'cranked up' and it is shutting down anyhow, the output module(s) may be failing which can cause excessive heat at any level. Sometimes feeling the back of the unit in which the main amp is located will tell you by the amount of heat you sense that one or more of these is dying.

No sign of life in external notebook speakers

  1. If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
  2. If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
  3. If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.
