Re: no speaker sound
Sound is usually a small green colored plug AND a USB connection which connect in the back of the tower.If they are hooked up properly,somewhere on your bottom taskbar there is a sound level icon which just may need turning up or on the video program or website you may be trying to hear.I have a Dell studio and do not see my sound icon right now though.I think I hid it or something.You may have to search through control panel options and fish around to find it.I would double check the connections in back first though and ensure they are pressed in good.Good luck!

Make sure all wall and power outlet switches are on and that all
switches for your speaker system are on. Cycle the power switch.(switch
is located on the back of the subwoofer) Check power LED on left and
right speakers. Is the LED on? If not, power is not getting to your
speaker system. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an electrical
2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the
appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them.
3. Check the connection to the soundcard. Make sure it is connected to
the proper jack. This varies from each soundcard manufacturer. (Please
refer to your soundcard manual.)
4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by
pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also
check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To
mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same
the part that is for your problem This
is an indication that the satellite speakers are not plugged in all the
way to the subwoofer. You will hear a slight "snap" sound if they are
plugged in all the way. The inputs are color coded and shape coded
(triangle and square). Make sure they are aligned properly.
Howdy. Those speakers do not require drivers. Your speaker set up is dealt with in audio set up in most versions of windows and most Macs. Almost all speakers are plug and play now. If you are having audio issues, it is usually the sound card or sound drivers. To check for sound issues, you can use a sat of headphones to test the audio connection, it helps isolate the issue to either the speakers or the computer. If you still run into trouble, check back and we will get you going somehow:) Good luck.
go to start>settings control panel> click on system then click on device manager. Make sure that everything is working properly then in control panel click sound. if that is all working. Make sure you have the speakers connected in the right spot. You may also want to try the speakers on another computer to isolate exactly what the problem is. Thank you, lee
Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.
• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their position in your room. • Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity (+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output. • Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.
How do you know the receiver's Left channel isn't the fault? Sounds like a source issue.
the First thing to test are the speakers form a different source. I believe that if you hook them up to another computer or an mp3 player you will find that the problem goes away and they work fine. (I know this by the info you gave me. THe fact that you get a large hum from the card when it is plugged in means that the output on the card has a short in it and is crossing the connections somewhere.
Solution is to have the card replaced or test it with another set of speakers just to be sure it isn't the cable.
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.
This issue could be caused by any of
the below reasons.
Sound card does not work
Speakers are not connected properly
No power to the speakers
Volume on speakers turned down
Volume on sound card turned down
make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is
possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers
software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this
follow the below steps.
Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or
"Sounds and Audio Devices" in
Click the "Audio" tab
In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button
under "Sound Playback."
In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your
speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this
setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo
If you changed this setting click "Apply"
and close out of all windows.
Ensure that the sound card works
properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the
computer, or a pair of headphones.
the left speaker will generally have a cable
cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the
other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray).
The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color
and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the
back of your sound card.
Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the
back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power
cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration,
some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but
instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the
side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor
itself (via another type of cable).
Most speakers will have a small
(light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light
is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be
getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a
working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries
are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a
button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.
Verify that the volume knob on the
speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what
direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while
the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to
The sound is also able to be turned up and down
through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound
settings in the software are properly turned up.
Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue
and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer
does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you
contact the manufacturer of the speakers or
computer for a new replacement.
Start with the obvious! Are all connections to PC connected? Be sure that the proper wires are connected to the proper plug in.
Next you may have to adjust the volume control thru Windows. Look for the small speaker icon at the bottom right (usually) of the screen. Double click, and be sure that all of the volume controls are "up" and be sure that none of them are "muted"
There also may be a volume control on the monitor, speaker assembly.
