First of all check your wiring is right. If you have a pair of speakers they need power so they should have a wire which goes into the electrical supply. Then they need to be connected to each other and thirdly they need to be connected via a wire probably green-tipped into a port on your computer. Probably green also. Once all these wires are in you can test them.
Find a CD or something and see if it will play. If not you need to go into control panel. Click start and find the control panel. You can type the word "control" in the "run" or "search" option if you want to(depends on whether you have XP or Vista) Look for your sound options. They may be set to mute or no-sounds. Enable them and your speakers should work. Also check that your volume is up......obviously :)

I keep hear noises through my computer speakers that sounds like a camera shutter, it is not constant, nor does it happen regularily or when I do anything particular. Just every nor and again I hear the...

It sounds like you have interference coming into your speakers that has nothing to do with your computer or any software. Do you have a modem or router or anything with BLINKING LIGHTS nearby? Less likely problems are disc players, tape players or anything with a motor, even the little ones that pull in and push out the discs.
The best way to troubleshoot is to move each piece of equipment you have within say, 10 feet of you speakers, the lead wires, or even the amp, and see which one makes it go away.

I dont know how to reinstall the speakers into the computer. we had the computer redone.i had someone reinstall my computer from bottom up. so weve had to reinstall every thing including the printer etc...

Assuming that by "reinstall my computer from bottom up", you mean software:

You don't actually "install" speakers. You install a sound device, usually a sound card. Some motherboards have sound capability on them so you don't use a separate card. On the back of your computer you should have 3 to 5 or so, round RCS miniplug connectors. That is where you plug your speakers in. Look at the connectors to see which has a little speaker icon. One's probably for a microphone; one for line output. If you can't tell, the green one is a good guess for speakers.

Then boot the computer (if it isn't already running) and go to Control Panel\System\Hardware\Device Manager\Sound, video and game controllers. See what is there. If there is nothing, you'll need to figure out what kind of sound device you have and get the driver for it. If there is a red mark, that means there's one there but it isn't working. Select and delete it, then close everything, shut down and reboot. Windows may just fix it for you. There's a bunch of other possibilities, so if this doesn't work, document what happens and repost the results and we can go from there.

Yes, it could be mother board or bad speaker wire. Or get another sound card and have someone install it for you and load the driver. again, If you have the driver for that old sound card, remove and install it again.If the sound card is on the mother board, go to the manufacture and download the driver.

Good luck

I cant install Computer Speakers can someone help me? i installed computer speaker and all i get is humming sound i have three jacks one is pink blue green on compaq presarrio jbl platinum series

Make sure the jacks are in the correct sockets (as color-coded) and plugged all the way in.

If that still does not work, your speakers are faulty, and you will need to get them replaced.
