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?

your speaker connections are plugged in incorrectly or the speakers are not plugged in and powered on. check the back of the computer where your speakers are plugged in and make sure you speakers are plugged into the right colors
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.
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?
