Ok if im getting what your saying
the port of the computer for line in is not recognizing the sound of your sterio
ok there should be extra jack on speaker wire that should goto line in on computer
computers dont find these jacks cause there already predetermind when the cards drivers was installed
hook the jack to line out speaker out port if the speakers are powered find the power on them turn up
then goto your sound setup get to your volume controls and find the volume controls that are muted and or turned down even in advanced settings
if you recently changed your sound card you also want to be in the sounds setup and make sure that the propper software driver is connected and not the old one still in its place sometimes new drivers dont set the old drivers aside but it adds to the sound setup list
you will find the sound setup in control panel
also there is that slight chance you will have to reinstall software again
hope this has some help for you seeing i have no way of actually seeing the speakers in person and how they work

No sound from speakers


Test the speakers by plugging them into something you know has a jack that works, like an iPod or MP3 Player. If the speakers work on that then the issue is with your computer. If it does not work it may be the speakers. Make sure all the plugs are securely connected for both power and sound. If the speakers do work make sure that the computer isn't muted. If the sound is on try using a different port like the headphone port. See if sound comes out of the speakers then. If it still isn't working you may want to try uninstalling the sound drivers and downloading the latest ones to install.

I have this set of speakers hooked to a Dell 3000 running under Windows XP Pro. I recently had to change offices and when I hooked up the speakers, the subwoofer wouldn't work. I've tried reinstalling the...


Please check the cable using a multimeter. Check if the cable is broken.

Just by shifting the system, I fear if you could have an issue like this. Also check the Subwoofer box if its working or not. Good Luck.

Plug the speakers into your iPod. Any sound?
You may need to maximize the volume-control on the iPod *AND* on your speakers, but you should hear some sound, if the speakers are working.

Try a different set of speakers on your computer.

Make sure that you have not "muted" nor "minimized" the sound on your computer.

Make sure that the speakers are plugged-in to the "green" socket on your computer.

I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low.Since they work well on another system, try this- check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, there is something else we're missing. Let me know what you come up with.

Soundsticks not recognised


Remember that speakers that plug into an analogue port do not need drivers - the drivers are for your sound card.
I sounds as though the problem lies there.

The speakers don't work anymore...


TheLastStraw,

Pardon the pun, but it "sounds" like you need a new sound card. I recommend TigerDirect for quality parts, service, and shipping.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

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
