If the computer is a laptop whereby you failed to mention what devices you are working with; then I suggest you plug an External monitor into the Video port on the side of the computer to see if your Video output is communicating.
Go to control panel, click sounds and audio devices then a window will pop up under speaker settings will be a picture of 2 speakers. Click advanced and set it to desktop stereo speakers. Turn your computer around and plug them into the green 3.5mm sound jack. That should work if not then there is something wrong with your computer's audio driver or sound card. I would check for updates for your sound driver and that should fix it. If not i would try buying a new sound card
Check the easy stuff first: make sure the volume is at a reasonable level and play sounds from multiple sources like pandora, youtube, a local mp3 etc to make sure issue is consistent.
Next make sure the one or more wires are plugged into the correct ports. Or at the very least the green wire is plugged into the green plug on the computer (unless they're USB speakers?).
You could always look at the sound settings of Windows and see (if your sound card has multiple plugs) if the plugs and assigned different functions (base speaker versus microphone/headphone etc.). Hope this helps!
Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times. The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program. I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.
Make sure if speakers have a power adapter that it is plugged in. That should give you the green light.
Where the speakers plug into the computer there are multiple places in a row to plug it in. One is a microphone input, one is audio input, and 2 are for speakers (depending on the sound card you have). Try plugging it in different ones to see if sound works.
the buzzing sound is normal for half way, however it does tell you the speakers work, First thing is to make sure the mute is not on.next make sure you have it plug into the out put just and not the mic or input.
