Howdy, the speaker input on a Dell is often on the front and the back. It is usually the green one. The speakers from the HP should have no problem working on the dell; It doesn't care what brand of speaker it uses. Making the actual connection is only part of the deal, the mute could be on or volume turned all the way down.
If the speakers require external power, make sure they are plugged into a good outlet and turned on.

If you check all these things, and still have no sound, let me know and I will help figure out what to do next:)

Why can't connect my HP Deskjet F4280 to my Dell computer?


Without more information, nobody is going to be able to answer.

If printer has parallel plug (common for older printers), and your Dell doesn't have such a socket, then that's why. Parallel connections are out of fashion these days. You can get a parallel card to add to your Dell and connect it to that.

Can Dell speakers be used with HP computers? I recently purchased a HP computer. Can I use my Dell speakers? I can turn them on and the light comes on, but can get no audio.


Well speakers are speakers so to "Speak" ... As long as the INPUT connections are the same, then, there is NO reason why they should not work.

I have a Dell A525 Speaker system that I bought to use with a Dell projector and an Inspiron laptop computer. It worked fine until I had the computer stolen. Not thinking ahead I bought an HP computer...


The speakers can be used with the HP computer. The connection on the speaker set should look like the connector on a headset or headphones for an ipod. The connection for this can be located on the back of the computer near the location of where you plug in your monitor and keyboard. There also may be another location to plug this in at. If you had recently purchased this laptop, many manufacturers will put a connection the the front of the PC. Usually under a flap of some sort.

HP speakers not working with Dell computer


Your speakers are plugged into the wrong port? Most computers have at least a mic port and a speaker port, many also have front, rear, center, and subwoofer. Try playing a sound, then moving the connector to another port and trying again.

Are your new speakers plugged in? Is the volume on them turned up?

No its not EMI.- I have them too and mine are little over a year old. Have noticed the faint smell of electricial burning. Checked the sub and the amp/pwr supply in there must be slowly breaking down. I cant turn my speakers up past 25 percent volume and the crackling/hum gets very bad, We should all be looking for replacement at this point.
