Plugged in speakers, but computer can't find the device?

I just bought new speakers for my computer, a HP 500 2002. When I plugged everthing in (and I did do it correctly), I tried to play music, but it said that there wasn't any audio device hooked up. I looked under everything. and it is as if I never plugged in speakers at all. We tested the speakers to see if they worked by plugging it into my Ipod, and they do work. Do you know what is going on?

No sound on New computer Packard


Where are you expecting sound to come from? Do you have external speakers? Are they plugged into the right jack on the back? Do they also plug into the wall with a a/c adaptor? Are they part of your display? HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Connecting Speakers or Headphones Windows Vista

Hi

Thank you for your query

The sound issue could be down to several issues

Please try the following

1) Ensure that the speakers are plugged into the right port the port at the back of the Pc will be a light green colour and on closer inspection will have this symbol >))

2) If it is in the right port click on the following Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. In here ensure that the volume is not muted

I believe 1 of these 2 should cure the problem

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

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?

Its most likely a settings problem or drivers missing maybe?

Hardly any need to buy a new port for speakers, unless its really broken.

try the speakers on another pc if they work fine there then its a problem in your pc, sound settings or drivers.

Check device manager
right click my computer select manage.
on the left side select device manager

note any yellow ! marks on sound devices or unknown devices.
