There may be a very simple solution--first go to control panel, and click on sound. Somewhere there is a place where you configure your laptop sound system; if you click on internal speakers, that's what plays. If you click on external speakers, then your plugin speakers will work. Unless you configure them for use, it won't recognize them.

Need driver for FMW0085503


You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.

A program from Diversoft called Driver Genius when used will search your computer for lost, old, or non-existent drivers.

It will download the drivers for the sound system on the board and install it for you.

Twin Genius speakers model SP-K10 now carrying sound of intermitent machine gun fire on one speaker and deep bass humming on the second speaker. This is new - what can be the cause?


Could be interference from another electrical device or a loose connection. Or you forgot that you were watching Saving Private Ryan.

Turn off the movie, and then try moving them away from anything electrical; TV, monitor, PC mainly. Cordless phones can do it as well.

its not the speakers. it may be that your sound card driver is not installed so try downloading the drivers from the laptop support site and then try connecting your speakers.

No sounds come out


Computer sound. Check if speakers are working at another computer.. If so check that speakers mini jack are connected in right socket.(a dot with 3 brackets at 2 sides.) , should be a green socket fitted in a green female socket.. Still no sound install drivers and software that comes with motherboard, usually work 99%. There?s specific files needed for functionality depending on sound software that windows doesn?t have. If still no sound go to control panel, system,, hardware, device manager, sound video game controllers and uninstall all sound drivers. Reboot and let windows pickup up onboard sound and install drivers auto. if still no sound reinstall windows, make sure you?re not selecting new or format your hard drive, Ask someone that has done it before. This solves usually all my problems. If still no sound buy a separate souncard, they are cheap and use the disk that?s supplied.

My desktop pc wont recognise my speakers


Go to the control panel, open device manager, check the sound system. If you have installed a new O.S., then you will need to also install a new sound system. Perhaps it ac audio 97 or some other. Look for yellow exclamation mark or yellow question mark and right click on that and update drivers.
Hope that helps.

If after connect your usb speaker cable the system it is asking for software (drivers) you have to install them to get your audio working properly. Check it out the box of your new speakers for a installation CD.

You can also verify:

Check if your audio es working properly (start >> control panel >> sound and audio devices)
Check if your sound card is properly installed (My pc >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Audio)

Soundsticks not recognised


Remember that speakers that plug into an analogue port do not need drivers - the drivers are for your sound card.
I sounds as though the problem lies there.

Speakers are not being recognised


i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck
