No sound on speakers


no sound? i see... well on the right lower side of your screen do yu see a speaker with 3 little green lines coming out of it? this indicates that your sound card was detected by your computer. now in the back of your tower, are your speakers plugged in the right holes? if they are plugged in the pink holes (microphone) you will not hear anything. try plugging in green or black. if this dosent work go to control panel on your start key. lower left side. and click on sound options. you will see on the top tabs sound device. if your computer does not detect any sound related thing it will tell you that the device is not workign properly. this has to do with yur sound card not being installed correctly

How do I connect speakers


to connect speakers: You look at the back of your computer, there will be several small holes, most are color coded. the green hole is the output for speakers.
there is usually also a small arrow pointing away from the hole, this is the icon for OUTPUT. Other holes will have an icon for INPUT and for microphones.
If you have trouble seeing these things, you can just plug your speakers into the first hole. Goto YouTube and play a video, If you hear sound you have the right output. If no sound, try the speakers in the next hole. Continue until you hear the sound. ( this will not hurt the computer or the speakers )
NOTE: make sure the volume is turned UP on the speakers and the volume is turned UP on the computer.

Where do I connect speaker to GX100?


Look at the "back" of the computer-casing.

Look for 3 similar holes (green, blue, and pink).

Insert your microphone into the PINK hole.

Insert your speaker-connector into the GREEN hole.

If you have a cassette-deck with "line-out" connectors,
connect it via the BLUE hole.

I am a computer dummy...How to I connect speakers for sound like music in my computer?


The end of your speakers should have a green plug, on the back of your computer there is a green port. Insert the green plug into the green port. If you have a power cord for your speakers you need to plug that into the wall. 
Please rate my answer, and good luck.

I have no volume


Check on the back of your computer if your speakers are connected (three holes in a straight line - the speaker cable goes to the green hole)

Check if your sound card is installed and working properly
(My PC >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Audio)


Check if you computer sound is ON, no mute (Start >> Programs >>Accesories >>Entertainment >> Volume Control)


This will fix your problem.

I have received a new monitor as a gift for my computer. It is the W1934S and I was wondering if I should have sound with this display. I do have speakers from my previous monitor but there does not seem...


It doesn't come with speakers. see for yourself here.

If you want external speakers, connect the speakers to the back of the computer. the port will be a small, round green hole. to connect 2 speakers, you need a 3.5mm splitter.

Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


Hi rjlevesque

For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

green = speakers
pink = mic
blue = line in

Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ
