    The speakers are Altec Lansing ADA215, but it is a 4 speaker and woofer muti pack that I think she bought with the Dell. It all plugs into the woofer with a direct connection (from the woofer) to the outlet plug.



    I think they are just DOA, I looked on eBay and you can buy these speakers for $5 pair! So tell me to buzz off if this is ridiculous to try anything too extreme, but thanks really. Ellen

I connected some Altec Lansing speakers to my all in one (dell) desktop and now the built-in speakers don't want to work when i disconnect the Altec Lansing speakers !!


Your audio drivers may not be detecting the removal of the audio jack. First make sure the jack is completely removed from the computer.
Next, try a reboot.
Then go to the system tray, near the clock, and right click the speaker icon (you may need to expand the tray by clicking the icon.) Select "Control Panel" (the name may change depending on your audio card manufacturer) and then look for the "Jack Detection" option, it is usually a checkbox. Make sure it's checked, or if it is, uncheck it and then re-check it.

My Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers have stopped working. I probably downloaded some other software that overrode the Dell speaker installation. How do I reinstall the Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?


The speakers are probably fine. What you probably need to do is to reinstall the sound drivers on your dell.

You need the model of your dell pc and go to the dell website and find download and install the sound drivers for your system.

The model of your pc will be needed if any more assistance is needed.

I have Altec Lansing Speakers. They were working fine Saturday. I just tried to use them for class and now I am not geting any sound. I checked all the wires and they are all plugged in. I am getting no...


There are many models of Altec speakers, which do you have?

Most computer speakers include built-in amplifiers, volume and
tone controls, remote, audio processing, cross over networks...
etc.

These are sophisticated electronics devices, not the passive
speaker boxes of the 1970's

If any of the internal electronics, or even the internal power supply are fried, they will not work.

But don't miss the obvious:

1) Double check not only the cables, but also the audio-card
software settings.

Most new audio cards have programmable inputs and outputs,
some automatically detect what is connected to them.

Make sure that the settings are correct.

2) Make sure that the Audio card is not set for digital output
with analog speakers or vice versa.

3) Check the Windows mixer/volume control, or the mixer applet
that came with your audio card (or motherboard) to make
sure that the audio output is not MUTED or attenuated
anywhere in the audio path.

4) Make sure the Windows Vista DRM is not getting in the way.
(try non-protected audio files)

5) Finally try your speakers on another computer.

6) If the speakers are analog, connect them to the "LINE-OUT"
output of your home stereo to confirm if they are defective.

(This may require an RCA plug to miniature stereo adapter)

7) If the speakers are determined to be dead, phone ALTEC
tech support, insist on speaking to an engineering manager,
complain and make your self sound very important...

They may send you a free replacement.


I have found the ALTEC staff to be exceptionally helpful and
professional. On one occasion, they have acknowledged an
inherent design problem with a particular speaker model,
and sent me a more expensive replacement under warranty.

There are very few companies as GOOD as ALTEC, when it
comes to customer service.
