    I seem to have the same problem. My speakers were working and all of a suddent they stopped. The green light on my right speaker is now out. I checked my connection to the PC and it's fine. They came with my Dell so I think the software was already loaded. They have worked fine for 3 years. I wonder if they're shot, the wire is bad, or what else might be going on. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    You'll have to repost what you've done so far and how you checked the integrity of the connector from one speaker to the other and the connector from your powered speaker to your PC and what sound card you are using or if onboard audio what MB and what sound driver onboard.

    So, what you've check in Volume control for balance and what you've checked in sound settings within control panel and what you see in Device Manager for your legacy audio driver.

    Thanks,
    Worldvet

Tip

How to diagnose and fix sound problem for a desktop or a laptop


Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
Step 1
Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.

Step 2
Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.

Step 3
Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary
Step 1
If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Step 2
Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Step 3
Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
Step 1
Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.

Step 2
Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."

Step 3
Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.

Step 4
Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.

Step 5
Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

The speakers wont work no sound


This article contains tips for resolving sound related issues in Windows XP.
No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

I cant get my speakers on my computer to work


Computer speakers are specially designed for a computer desktop environment. They are smaller than normal stereo speakers and often have built in volume controls and amplifiers. In most cases, you can plug in your computer speakers and have them work immediately. Occasionally, however, you will need to adjust your computer sound settings to get them to work correctly.
  1. Step 1 Plug your speakers into each other. Most PC speakers have a detachable cord that goes between them. Powered speakers have a cord that plugs into the wall, which may be detachable as well.
  2. Step 2 126401_thumb.jpg Image Courtesy of: http://www.hardware.windowsreinstall.com/soundcards.htm Look at the sound card output in the back of your computer. If your soundcard has three colored jacks, plug into the green one. If it does not have colored jacks, plug into the one next to the jack with the picture of a microphone. Plug the power supply into a wall socket.
  3. Step 3 Turn on the speaker, turn up the speaker volume and play some music. If it doesn't work, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Turn your volume up on whatever media player you are using. If the music still doesn't play, continue to step 5.
  5. Step 5 Go to the volume settings. If you are using windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif, click Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control.
  6. Step 6 Adjust the volume settings. Use your mouse to drag the main "Volume Control" slider and the "Wave" slider all the way to the top. If either of them have the "Mute" box checked, uncheck it. Try the sound again.

Only one speaker working - acer computer speakers


1 step: kindly check the connection of the left speaker if it is plugged to the right speaker properly.
2 step: Then check the balance under volume control if it has been set in the middle.
3 step: If possible check the speaker on some other device(cd player etc) other than your pc and see if the left speaker still doesn't have any sound.
if so kindly replace them

Cannot seem to calibrate.


Go to Control Panel, open device manager, and and check for any yellow checks for your
sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external manually. You can adjust volume there..
