Question about Dell HK395 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Got these speakers from a friend who was moving. I have a Dell L933r with XP computer and I don't think I have the driver for these speakers. I can hear sound when I connect the wires (which are correctly connected) but don't get any playback sound in ITunes or WMP

First of all please keep it in mind that the Speakers do not require any kind of drivers.

If you are getting the sound volume icon on the taskbar and if you are able to raise and lower the voice using the slider, make sure the mute box is not checked. Similarly check the if the applications Itune or WMP is not muted.

Make sure the drivers for your sound card are installed properly.

Press Windows key and the letter R
Type devmgmt.msc
It will open the device manager
In device manager look for Sound and game controller and make sure the sound card driver is installed properly

I have dell vostro 200 slim tower. win xp pro sp3... originally this computer had vista installed but there was no restore cd so when it crashed my friend gave it to me. i used my xp cd and everything...

Have you tried some external powered speakers or even some headphones?
The problem may just be a dead speaker in your case or even a loose or misplaced jumper wire from the speaker to the motherboard.
Good luck, hope this helps. Post back if you're still stuck.

Sound driver for dell speakers windows xp system

The Speakers themselves do not require a driver, but your sound card does. You should be able to get the drivers for your Sound Card from the Dell website Support Page (if you have a dell computer.)

Bad graphics card

If you need help determining the type of card you will need for your motherboard visit and make note of the slots , colors, size , and shape.

Then open up the side panel of your tower and compare it to the pictures you saw.

Another thing - You will want to call dell and find out what your power supply is rated at wattage wise. It might or might not be listed on the supply unit itself. It sounds like you are just using your computer for casual use and not gaming, so please do not go and get something overkill just to fix the problem as its expensive in the end :)

The reason why you want to know the wattage is because certain cards perfom a lot better when you have better wattage power supply.
