Re: Centre speaker not making any sound...
First things first:
1) For Any sound 5.1 ( I presume you have a combo 5.1 speakers) I dunno the brand, but ......* check if your sound card is design for 5.1 configuration, also check your version of Direct X, is supose to be 9.0c, look on control panel and multimedia, if the configuration is on 5.1 speakers, ....also check your configuration program for your speakers for configure for 5.1 and do a test. some aplications don't use center speakers.

What has most likly happened in this case, is that either:
a) the wire has been tampered with, and has caused the left speaker to cut out,
b)the speaker settings are set to only play sound through the right speaker.
I recommend you see the bottom right of the computer screen, and look for the speaker icon. Right click the icon, and then select 'open volume control'. After doing this, make sure that all of the 'balance' bars(located at the top of 'volume control') are in the centre, and not at either side.
If this doesn't help, then I'm afraid you can only really purchase a new set of speakers, or have a fiddle with the wire, and see if there is a certain position or place the wire can be which makes both speakers work. If there is, tape the wire in a place/position which works.
Hi lalit kumar. If both the speakers worked OK at first and not now then something has changed.
1. Check that the speakers are actually still set up to make sound out of both and not just one.If you open control panel > sound there is tabs that you can look at for sound settings.
2. VLC media player has its own settings for "adjustments and effects" You may have set these up in a way that is making the sound only appear to be out of one speaker. Set them to DEFAULT
First step is to assure that the speakers are working. If you have no other computer or sound system to test the speakers, then attach a AA, AAA or C battery to the speakers plug. It makes no difference in the polarity. If it makes a horrible white noise, the speakers are in good working order, if it makes no noise, the speakers are at fault. Should the speakers be ok, then in all probability you have a configuration problem. Go to control panel, select Sound and Audio devices, and check that the proper configuration options have been selected, and that the speaker volume sliders are at least at the 50% mark. If this doesnt solve your problem, then a computer motherboard component might have failed. Keep me posted
The Guys at Boston Acoustics helped me get my speakers to work. The Boston BA7500 speakers are coaxial digital speakers so you need a digital output on your sound card. Analog will NOT work. My new HP Pavilion has a Realtek sound card with a digitial RCA plug output. I had to go to Amazon and get a male RCA to 1/8" Stereo Mini Female adapter plug. I just pluged it in and configured my sound card to 16 bit 48 khz output to the RCA output and everything works great. The speakers sound better then ever, great for 10 year old speakers! They sound better then anything I have seen avalable today. The guys at Boston were the only guys that helped with getting this to work! Thanks again to them and Amazon has every type of adapter plug you may need. Good luck.
I recommend going to the sound icon on bottom of main screen, right click, go to the properties and settings. Make sure the system is set for the same amount of speakers as you have. You can also use the test button and see if the settings are correct. Make sure you are using the correct audio decoder or ac3 filter
You did make sure that the speakers are plugged into the green audio connections, in the back of your computer, right? If so, try this, go to your control panel and double click Sounds and Audio Devices. Under speaker settings, go to Advanced and check to see if its set for desktop speakers. Also, in control panel, go to Sound Effects Manager and do a speaker test and see if they work. Hopefully this will help.
i can think of two things., you may need to do the update on your sound card and computer and make sure you have the correct codec's installed or also you may need to go to the web site of the makers of your logitech speakers and see if they have a common solution for this problem...... i also wonder if you should bypass the sound card and directly connect your speaker system to the out put port on your computer ..... give it a try what can it hurt .... if all else fails maybe there is a faulty wire in the speaker system ....... ahy ?
Based on the fact that you have put a headset in and another speaker system and it is working properly there is nothing wrong with your windows settings. I would leave them alone.
The issue appears to be with the hardware. Have you attempted to plug the speakers into another source (ie. cd player, ipod, etc)? If you plug them in there and they don't work, take the speakers back and have them exchanged. If they're not under warranty you're going to have to either get them fixed or replace them.
Good luck on this one!
