I recently received a Dell tower as a gift, but i have a gateway monitor. when i hooked up my speakers i get no sound what so ever. i did notice that i do not have a analog in cord, could that maybe be the problem? if so, am i able to purchase that particular cord any where?
If you buy a 1/8 - 1/8 male on each end of cord and plug it into your stereo headset plug on your computer (probably the front of tower) and the other end to the analog in on the back of your ba735 will work great....... Good Luck,

I have a similar set of Boston Acoustics speakers, which work fine for my tower. I find it hard to believe that they would just fail outright, and also that (unless you bought an upgraded sound system) you would have digital-only for your audio. I would recommend to check the basics first.
Check the speakers on another device. Mp3 player will work fine.
check the sound card on your computer (use a set of headphones or another speaker set).
you find they weren't plugged in, powered on, etc. resolve that.
Usually the power plugs are black, and only fit in one spot. The audio
cable to plug into the computer is similar to a headphones jack (3.5mm).
On most computers the audio output (speakers) port is colored green.
none of these get you fixed, go into the control panel and click the
sounds icon. From there you can view your volume levels (is the sound
muted?), view your playback device (it might have a hardware problem, or
be disabled), and test the settings.
If you are
still stuck after this please also post your version of windows, and the
make/model of your computer. If you know it, the type of audio device
you are using would also be helpful. (if it's a Dell standard device or perhaps an upgraded Creative or other brand device + model #)
make sure the power is hooked to the back of the monitor, and that the speakers are hooked into it. make sure it is switched on and volume is at 50% or higher. if it still doesnt work, try hooking an mp3 player to the speaker jack. if they work, its the computer. if it doesnt work, replace the speakers.
First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.
