if you have no sound card that id definitely the problem. If the sound card is bad, that's a problem too. What makes you ask the question of "Do I currently have a sound card"? Sound cards are standard devices on computers sort like a stering wheel comes with a car.
Either you have the speakers plugged into the wrong port in the back of the computer (Normally they go into the light green port) or You have the volume muted, or you have the volume down low or your sound drivers are missing. Oh and make sure you have the speakers turned on and the volume on it turned up.
to connect speakers: You look at the back of your computer, there will be several small holes, most are color coded. the green hole is the output for speakers.
there is usually also a small arrow pointing away from the hole, this is the icon for OUTPUT. Other holes will have an icon for INPUT and for microphones.
If you have trouble seeing these things, you can just plug your speakers into the first hole. Goto YouTube and play a video, If you hear sound you have the right output. If no sound, try the speakers in the next hole. Continue until you hear the sound.
( this will not hurt the computer or the speakers )
NOTE: make sure the volume is turned UP on the speakers and the volume is turned UP on the computer.
On the back of your computer there are three input holes. The speaker wire connector should be green. Match up the the green conector with the green input on the back of the computer. You should now have sound coming from the speaker. If you still do not have sound then you need to make sure you have installed the driver for the sound card. Your speakers should have come with a disk that will have the driver on it.
Check the cords and all connections between soundcard and speakers. You can troubleshoot by connecting a different pair of speakers (switch it over while the computer is turned off). If the problem goes away, then it's the speakers. If not, then it's the computer.
Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.
make sure when you click on the speaker in the bottom right hand corner that your wav volume is also turned up or nothing will come out as well. and always plug speakers ect into green plugins on computers and speakers.
