Speakers themselves don't require a driver. Sounds like you may need to change to ones with an external power supply.

1st check your PC if audio is fine with headphones or some other speakers , then check your control panel and test sounds compatibility might that you are using wrong speaker setting in the PC.

I have polk audio speakers that came with my old hp f50. I just purchased a new hp but can't get my speakers to work


The old speakers are not compatible. Your new computer is looking for an external power source for the speakers, the older polk speakers that came with Hp computers have none.

Polk computer speakers work in laptop but not on desktop computer


desktops now a days have more than one plug for the speakers. try playing some music and play which hole works.

if there is a 5.1 or surround on the desktop then most likely the light green jack isnt stereo out but rather unamplified signal. thus when you plug head phones into it the internal amp drives the headphones, but wants the computer to drive the speakers.

try plugging it into the black one... or play pick a hole till it works.

My monitor quit working. I plugged up my old one but it has no on board speakers. I plugged in my old speakers (Polk Audio) but I can't make them work. Does anyone have a fix? Thank you.


Yes, just download or update your audio drivers from windows. You can probably just update your windows and it will do it for you. Just go to programs > windows update.

Next thing you can check is that all the cords are plugged up right.

Then right click on your speaker icon on the task bar (its usually by your clock on the computer) and click on Properties or Playback Devices (whichever you see on pop up menu. You can also get to the same place by opening Control Panel and clicking on the Sound icon).

So now you just click on the tab called Playback and make sure you pick the speakers that you want. Choose the plug, or place where the speakers are plugged in (front headphone jack, rear audio jack, or where ever you plugged them) and set them as the Default playing device by right clicking on it and choosing that option from the pop up menu.

You can explore around these tabs and can test your speakers out and what not. Just look under all these tabs and explore. Hopefully this will help you get them working.

These are what is called line powered speakers. Some sound cards have the power to amplify the sound enough to be heard plainly, and others do not. Try adjusting the volume from the computer. If that does not work and the speakers are plugged in to the green port on the sound card, I would recommend replacing the speakers with amplified (powered) ones.

Polk speakers with Windows Vista don't work


I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the
speakers produce sound, the problem is probably
with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard
installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound
card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your
soundcard or media player software and keyboard.
Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the
plugs are securely connected in the proper location
according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th
front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire
with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker
terminal on the subwoofer.

hi Hubbell2008
And Happy Holidays
well, as you can see depending on your audio card, and output power, and sound settings on control panel, if is all up, or down.
you can try that first. But if not work is and Audio Card, type of power output, ....in that case you can change your audio card, if an onboard audio, place a PCI and will be ok, Creative labs models makes diff.
