Onboard Sound Problem

This is rare case as i was looking for post throughout d net. this is an issue on "speaker jack" failure. this is exactly the problem i have right now. those who have d same problem, pls follow up. this is the case.. when i plug d my speaker to the "speaker out" jack, it only produce sound on single speaker. pulling the plug halfway out temporarily correct problem. this is not a problem on driver, etc... this is my main concern, is it safe if i remove the onboard audio ports and replace one from another motherboard? i know its not easy, i thinkin of taking the risk.

    as ive said, its not a problem with driver, etc.(wires,speakers,jack). i already tested amplifier((sound system), headfons, desktop speakers. came same result. its on the "contacts". one thing i really dont understand is when i remove the wires from front audio, no sound at all. strange right? i know it is better to buy separate card. "for the record", ill give it a try, its an old board anyway. ill kip u posted for the result. :P

No you will run into alot of problems and you will destroy *********** board.My advice is that you get a different set of speakers that have a pin with suited size for your sound card.
the problem is that the pin of your current speakers is too long for the jack and as a result only contacts for one speaker are fully connected.
Your sound card has no problem,but if you realy want these speakers just buy another sound card and install it and hopefully it will work.
it is very risky

My speakers sounded distorted, so I thought that perhaps my kids had turned the volume too high and blew them out, So I just bought new speakers and they're exactly the same. Sounds tinny. Is this a...

could be a driver issue, but I'm inclined to suspect damaged sound chip. I would personally install a separate sound card, in most cases, better quality sound anyway

I plugged in my Altec AP3 Speakers to my computer running windows 7. It does not play. i get sound directly from my PC (it had sound prior to plugging in speakers) however the Altec speakers have no sound

You haven't specified from which computer source you connects this device with. If it is from the audio out socket of the PC, your PC's audio card [or onboard audio] dirive hasn't been installed yet. Unlike WinXP, Win-7 haven't all driver software in its driver cab when it is installed. If onboard sound should energize, the mother board CD should be loaded. There is audio and video drive [normally NVIDIA] drive should be installed. Anyway, you have to install the dirve. Now it disabled. Go to the hardware confujuration of your system, and look whether onboard audio is disabled. If it is disabled, inable it. If there is no driver installed to it, the system will ask CD. Then insert the CD into the CD tray, and follow the instructions. If your Win-7 is registered, you can get diretly into Microsoft site, and can download the driver needed. OK.

How to use speaker in computer?

Does your motherboard has an onboard sound card? If it has then read your motherboard manual especially the audio section of the manual where the topic is described how and where to plug in which audio jacks coming out from you speakers (speaker system) to which part of the external audio ports usually located at the rear end of your computer case. You need to install the sound card drivers to activate audio properties of your computer of course, to actually use the speakers.
You can also use the front panel audio port of your computer case where you can connect your speakers to as well.
In case your motherboard did not come up with sound card installed you can always install an external sound card and then connect the speakers to the proper external audio ports of the card. Just read your motherboard or sound card manual. It is all there.

Bose speak cable was accidentally pulled out of computer and I cannot understand how/where to plug it back in. Dell xps 420

The 3,5mm jack from your speakers must be connected at the GREEN 3,5mm female jack (at the back panel of your dell, NEAR the blue, orange and black jacks, just above the USB connectors). Maybe this photo will help you:
In case you have another audio card and you're not using the onboard with the computer, the connections is a little different. In that case post a reply to clarify for you.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Computer speakers are buzzing

Common humming sounds from computer sound systems stem from the follwing:

1) Interferance with other electrical componants / devices
Solution: EMF / Radiostatic shielding may provide the solution

2) Defective componants
solution: try the hardware in another PC, if it still hums, your board / plug-in compants may be defective.

3) Jack(s) - Headphones / speakers have loose connection
Make sure everything is plugged in securely, and your jacks have not been damaged, also make sure you are plugged into the correct ports.

4) Microphone boost / auxiliary settings
check your sound settings, disable any ports you aren't using. Line-in, Aux, CD-rom, Digital Input.. if they aren't being used, they may be creating "whte" static in the lines. Muting them, or disableing them in the sound settings for your device may provide the solution..

5) It has been known to happen that certain CPU / Case / Power supply fans emmit a sonic frequency through the speakers due to EMF expulsions from the electro-magnetic motor. This is rare, but is possible, Disable the case fan to determin if it's the culprit, swap power supply, or CPU fan to determin if they are the issue.

WARNING: Never run your PC without the CPU fan in full operation, Never run the PC without your Power Supplies fan in full operation: This can lead to DAMAGE to your PC.

On a personal note: My card has several different ports, make sure you are plugged into the correct port, and muting the Aux cleared the humming in my computer's sound system.

Static coming from my DELL AS500 speakers

It's the jack on the back of the PC or sound card. Sounds like some solder is loose on the jack.

The cheapest solution would likely be to just replace the sound card, if your comfortable installing them. It's really quick and pretty hard to mess up.

If it's "onboard" sound, meaning the audio jacks are built right into the mother board, you'd likely need to just replace it with a pci based sound card.

Speakers stopped working

Hello there!
It sound a power adapter failure,
check your speakers for power failure, or bad connections,
check also your sound card, mixer, and drivers.
perhaps if a onboard sound is disable for some reason.
check that too.
Good Luck
