Connecting speakers to compacq computer

I recently moved and someone else took my computer apart. I tried to connect the speakers to the computer but ...NO SOUND! Maybe I am not connecting them correctly. Can you plug in the speakers to the monitor? Or do you have to connect them to the back...Also, what does the plug look like?

Appears to have blown speaker. How does unit come apart, tried prying on front no luck don't want to break unit. Are there screws anywhere to remove?

There may be screws on the bottom, under the rubber feet. The faceplate may come off with screws under them.

It's also likely you have a bad connection or bad amp rather than a bad driver, unless you've been connecting your speakers to an external amp that's too powerful, and playing loud, If that's the case, you will likely be looking at new speakers.

One Speaker no longer works, its the one that plugs into the other, is it broken for good? or is there a way to take it apart and fix it?

Hi !
Most of the time there isn`t any problem with the speaker but with the cable connecting the 2 speakers .Try to listen some music and move the cable a little and maybe you`ll hear the sound coming out from the dead box .
The cable is not that hard to be replaced but you will need a new cable and a soldering tool, ( or someone who has one )
But the majority of the people are just buying a new set a speakers when one brokes because these are one of the cheapest parts that can broke on a computer...same for the mouse or keyboard , a good specialist can still fix it but it doesn`t worth it if you can afford new ones.

I have just moved my speakers around in my room and they were working perfectly before. Now only one speaker is playing and when i swap the inputs the other speaker will work fine but they other one wont....

check the mass terminated cable connecting the controller to the base speaker. This connection becomes flacky generally requiring a good contact cleaner solution being needed to be applied to restore the connections.
Go to radio shack and ask for a plastics safe contact cleaner then after disconnecting the mass terminated cable spray it liberly. Then reinsert while still wet then work in and out a few times. You can do this for all the cables connecting to the pc as well. This should restore your dead channel....hop it works :-)

We set up the logitech x-350 speakers with a pavilion slimline 2009 hp pc and all but two speakers work, how can i fix this problem?

So on my speaker system (the same one) The nob broke off, but it started with only a few of them not working (mainly the back ones) I took a part the main speaker (the one with the control nob) and found that the nob its self was not set on the circuit board properly, check if yours is connected completely. There should be 6 brown peaces of plastic connecting the volume nob to the circuit board, if any of these are disconnected or not completely level then that is what is causing your problem. Be careful reattaching them and make sure the system is not on when you do because you might risk blowing all the speakers plugged in. Each part connected to the volume nob is a speaker, the nob controls each one if they are not connected then the speaker wont work at all.
If that does not work then you should try checking each wire connected to the speaker, when you pick it up or move it around the speaker may become active and turn off depending on how you hold or move the wire, this would be because your wire is fragmented, and you could try replacing it but I am not sure how effective that would be.
Glad I could help - Ben

Wiring internal board of labtec computer speakers

The shielded wires are for ground, so they get connected together. Plug the wire into the PC and run some music. Then touch each wire to the others. You only have a couple of combinations to and white-to-yellow, or red-to-yellow and white-to-green, . You can do this while the PC is one and music playing until you get sound thru the speakers. There virtually no current running thru the wires and you can't hurt the PC by doing this.
If the speakers use an external power supply, have it plugged in and working when trying these connection options.

No sound out of left speaker

To fix this I took mine apart. But I suspect it was the red and white speaker outputs. I unscrewed the screws and moved the red and white speaker outputs around and then put the thing back together. It now works again.
