The speakers on my computer are not working. When I look under properties, it tells me there are no speakers. I tried unplugging and replugging the wires. I know the speakers work, just not on my computer.

Hi GB
You need to check and see if your audio device is working.That's what will determine whether your speakers will work or not.
So,go to Start-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager (In Windows systems up to XP)
In Vista or 7,go to Start-Control Panel-Device Manager
Then look down to the Multimedia or Sound,Video and Game controllers category,name depending on Windows version.
Is there a yellow triangle or red x on the category anywhere? If there's a yellow triangle right click on that and select enable. And try your speakers to see if they're working now.
If there's a red x,your audio controller isn't working and Windows is almost definately asking for drivers.Double click the device and see what the next window tells you. If it needs drivers you can tell Windows to automatically install them,and to let Windows connect to the internet to look for them.
If you do have a driver problem and that doesn't work for you,look on the back or sides of your case,possibly even the bottom,for a sticker called the Service Tag.
Please post back with that code,your version of Windows and your exact model number,in case there were any additional letters or numbers,and I'll try and lead you to the drivers to download.
If this helps you out,would you rate my post please?
I'll be here
Bob

I cant turn on my Logitech Z2300 speakers


These don't usually have a fuse. Let go through a few troubleshooting steps. Unplug from you computer and plug into an mp3 player or anything that uses the same size plug.
*If they work
Then it is in your computer. Plug some headphones in the output (normally the green plug) and test that. Go to control panel>sounds and audio devices and make sure your volume is at least half way up and not muted. If that is ok, check your hardware. right click on "My computer" the select properties, hardware tab then device manager button and see if there is a yellow exclamation on your sound device. If there is reinstall the driver.

*If they didn't work on another device (like a walkman) then it is probabbly your speakers.
unplug and wait for a few minutes then replug. Ensure any lights are on, on the unit. If they don't come on then the unit is probabbly been damaged by a power surge or lightning. They aren't user fixable usually. Return or replace.

My computer speakers just went silent in the middle of a song


Do the speakers have power? Check the fuse.

Where are you plugging your headphones?
Where are the speakers connected? Is it the same jack as the headphones?

Have you tried plugging the speakers into the headphone jack vs the soundcard?

Speakers are not being recognised


i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck
