Question about Dell P4 2.8 GHz (DELLDIMREF1100) PC Desktop
Assuming something in the computer didn't mysteriously go bad during the move, there are two possibilities. First, make sure the signal cable from the speakers is plugged in to the right place. You may have plugged it into the microphone input or line input jack by mistake. Second, be sure the speakers have power. Most speaker systems require AC power, either from a plug-in adapter or a built-in supply that needs an AC connection. (Some newer systems come with USB-powered speakers that don't need an external adapter.)
A remote possibility is that in the move, the speakers got bumped enough to disturb connections on the circuit board inside. The amplifier chip in the speaker case gets hot (especially if the volume is turned way up), and the heat can degrade solder connections, and sometimes cracks form. The move may have caused connections that were iffy to go bad. But this isn't very likely.
You'll probably find it to be a very simple missed connection. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!
