Check where you plugged your jack on your pc. usually it is green in color.

check the volume control on your task bar. it might be just too low or mute.

some old speakers, require batteries.

try replacing the audio output cable that feeds the speakers. the computer reads it plugged in by breaking the circuit when its empty. check the entire length of the cord for cuts and breaks, and check the plug ends. best test is using a multimeter and checking each section of the plugs for continuity.

I have a new PC with Vista installed. BA 745 do not work.


check to make sure you have the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner. If you do, see if you can move the sound bar up and down. This will verify that you definitely have the right sound drivers installed and they got installed properly.

Make sure you have the speakers connected properly. Here is a setup poster to show you how. Follow this just to be sure

http://supcontent.gateway.com/support.gateway.com/s/SOUND/speakers/7003709/700370935.jpg

Once you verify this and the sound still doesn't work then it could be a problem with the speakers or the sound card or sound chipset (if you have integrated sound on the motherboard).

To verify whether its the sound card or sound chipset on the motherboard or whether it could be the speakers. Put the speakers on another machine that you know has the sound drivers installed and turn up the sound bard in the operating system thru the speaker icon. If you get sound then its a problem with your other computer. If you still dont' get sound then the sound speaker system is bad and would need to be replaced.

My speaker set up boston acoustics ba7500 will'nt


The Guys at Boston Acoustics helped me get my speakers to work. The Boston BA7500 speakers are coaxial digital speakers so you need a digital output on your sound card. Analog will NOT work. My new HP Pavilion has a Realtek sound card with a digitial RCA plug output. I had to go to Amazon and get a male RCA to 1/8" Stereo Mini Female adapter plug. I just pluged it in and configured my sound card to 16 bit 48 khz output to the RCA output and everything works great. The speakers sound better then ever, great for 10 year old speakers! They sound better then anything I have seen avalable today. The guys at Boston were the only guys that helped with getting this to work! Thanks again to them and Amazon has every type of adapter plug you may need. Good luck.

No sound out of monitor speakers


Is there actually any unknown devices in the device`manager?

Are your monitor speakers USB or do they plug into the audio out jack of your sound card or motherboard???

If they plug into the sound jack, then test the sound output with a pair of headphones.

Hope this helps you narrow it down. Please reply back if you need further help
