Question about Gateway (G-MAX2000) Computer Speakers
Computers do NOT detect speakers. Computers detect sound cards, which is the device that speakers plug in to but they are not aware of whether you are plugging in headphones, an amplifier or speakers.
The most common problems here are:
A: Your speakers are not plugged into the proper hole on the sound card. (most are color coded, make sure your cables jack color matches the color of the hole you are inserting it in.)
B: Your sound card is not installed properly. (This requires more info to resolve)
C: You volume is muted. (Instructions below)
D: Your speakers require power and are not plugged in or turned on. (Have you used these speakers before? Do they require power, is the power on?)
Go to your Control Panel under Sound and check your settings, make sure that your volume is NOT muted and that you have some sort of sound card showing.
If that does not help then please send me that Make/Model of the Computer you are using and Operating System (XP, Vista, etc) so that I may give you a specific answer with simpler instructions.
