Question about Computers & Internet

4 Answers

I just bought a pair of "istar" USB speakers which came with no instructions. I have put the usb into a port at the back of the computer and plugged the little green (sorry not real tech savvy lol!) plug into it's socket too. The speakers turn on, but how do I now get the sound to come out of the speakers. I have been trying to test it listening to youtube and nothing comes out - it's still coming out of my computer and the sound in my computer is quite distorted (which is why I got speakers). Can anyone tell me what changes I need to tell the computer in order for the speakers to function? Cheers, MUMOF4

Hello.

You can go to the control panel and then double click the sounds and audio device. On the audio, under default device select the newly installed device audio or what ever indicated in the selection.

    if you are unable to fix the problem from within the the audio devices, let me know, but that should work

    other things to check

    1. do the speakers have their own volume control which may be turned down or on mute

    2. is there any setup instructions with the speakers

    yes, it is under audio, not hardware

Computer speakers get their signal from the phone jack (maybe from USB port). They have a power cord (if USB powered connect to a USB port on your computer) to connect to a wall outlet.

Winxp sp3 andwin7 cannot recognized its USB adapter saying that it is an unknown device, i've tried to remove it from device manager and reboot, i also tried to update the driver through windows update...


The easiest way to figure out what is going on is to try the adapter on a different computer. If it is still good it will be detected. Usually when a usb device fails it may be recognized or is recognized only as a usb device but it will not work. You don;t have to install any drivers just to test this on another computer unless you want to make sure it is fully functional. It is also possible that the usb ports on the computer are not working or one isn't. Simpley use on of the other ports.The usb port controller usually operate a pair of usb ports so try all the ports. You may get a problem with one port or pair but rarely all at the same time.

I think you will find that the adapter itself is your problem and will probably need to be replaced.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

New pair of La Cie speakers. Dell pc. Not sure whee o plug in varous leads, but it now does the beefs etc on Windows. But when I put a CD in there is no sound at all


Hi there,

I think you were disconnected from our conversation. Anyway, the LaCie speaker is USB powered so you dont have to plug it into a power source because they will be powered by the USB port. You dont need to plug them into a speaker output on the computer as well. Just plug the USB cable of the speaker into your computer's usb port. As for the other speaker, there is a cord that used to connect the speakers together. Just plug it underneath the first speaker, that says "speaker" source. Then go to your Control panel >> Multimedia >> Audio and choose them as your Audio Output device.

Good luck!

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.

Downloading from pc to digital photo frame


Solution:

1. I don't think the USB Cable was given to Download Photos from the computer - I think it was given to upload photos to the Computer.

2. The manufacturer has either gave you the wrong cable for a different type of Operating system or you are trying to put it in the wrong port.

Suggestion:

1. Call a Technical Support Line (Probably found on back of instruction booklet.)

or

2. Send the Product back to the company.
