Make sure the jacks are in the correct sockets (as color-coded) and plugged all the way in.

If that still does not work, your speakers are faulty, and you will need to get them replaced.

Drivers missing


most computer speakers don t use a "Driver" they are typically controlled by the "Sound card" drivers. Typically there are three jacks that computer speakers fit into. look for a green receptacle to verify they are plugged into. Typically (pink = microphone) (blue = input) . Check your power input to the speakers, very common to become unplugged from the wall outlet. (however some speakers do not have external power source) verify , mute is not checked off. (speaker icon by the clock) check control panel , speaker settings. ...sometimes people inadvertently check off "digital output only" which effectively turns the speakers off.

I HAVE A Z-2300 NO SOUND


Is it plugged in with a 3.5 millimeter jack? If it is, pull it out of the computer and press you thumb on the tip, if no humming noise comes out, your speakers are probably blown.

However, if a humming noise does come out. Please check to make sure the volume on the computer is turned up/unmuted, the software's volume is turned up/unmuted, your sound card driver is installed (Right-Click "My Computer" -> left click on properties -> Click on the Hardware tab -> click on "Device Manager" -> Click the "+" next to "Sound, video and game controllers" and make sure there is no Red "X"'s or yellow "!"'s.

If you do get a hum, and you do have everything set up right in Windows, try a different pair of speakers or head phones. Your sound card might be fried.

Also, make sure you're plugging the speakers into the correct port on the computer (It's usually a washed out green port"

My rear sound jacks are blue, green and pink...Im not sure where to plug the three speaker jacks in, as theyre not marked in any way. The speakers seem to be working, except for playing videos etc on the...


what do you mean by your rear sound jack? is that the 3 jacks that you use to connect to your computer ? it depend on if you have 5.1 system or 2.1 system but normally you can plug it in this order : green , yellow , black . The pink normally is for Mic port but if you don't have it then insteed 1 of those 3 colors you replace it with the pink. And again you have to have a software on your computer which is usually come with your computer when you buy it. You'll have to manually configue those port in the software on your computer to get it to work. Good luck and keep me updated.

What you need to do is go to start, control panel, device manager and see what sound device is installed...then you need to select update driver. Otherwise you need to see what specific hardware sound device you have, copy and paste into google for a driver search.

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

Speakers won't work


Hi, you may want to try plugging the input line of the Dell speaker to the other jacks. Normally green is for speaker, pink - microphone and blue is for line-in and all are normally at the back of the computer. Sometimes, the back are deactivated if there are jacks in the front., so you may to try plugging it in the front if they are present. Assuming the speakers light/power up, if you want to check if they are working is by touching with your finder the input plug which should produce a humming sound. Also worth to check the drivers of your sound card. Hope this works for you. Regards.
