There are several reasons why it may not work here are some of them. Your speakers should be powered most sound cards do not provide enough amplification for this reason (2) They need to be plugged in the green socket I know it sounds stupid But I've done it too!. (3) In the bottom right corner there is the symbol of a speaker Make sure there is no red X through it if not Double click on the speaker icon and it will bring up the mixer section make sure nothing is muted. If these do not help write back and i will walk you through checking your sound device and the drivers. Good Luck... Be mucho blessed...Mark

Where do I plug in speakers


Speakers should plug in in the back of your computer. There should be three ports, one of which is green. Also check the volume on speakers if there are manual volume controls, or on the computer as well. Sometimes this is overlooked. If you go to Control Panel (assuming this is a Windows machine) there is a sound feature and you can test sounds there.

I do not hear my music what do i have to turn on


In the system tray, check the speaker icon (to me it looks like a megaphone on Vista and Win7). A single left click will check if the speakers are set to a low volume or mute.

Also check if the correct drivers are loaded (there will be an exclamation point here if that is the case). Allow Windows to Fix the problem with Windows Update set to download and install updates.

If that is fine, check that the speakers are plugged in properly to the computer and themselves. If you have a multi-channel sound card and speakers, check your manuals. If you just need the single speaker out audio jack, it is usually colored light green. For USB speakers, try plugging them into another USB port or directly to the computer if plugged into a hub.

If the speakers need external power, make sure that plug is plugged in and the transformer is warm. If the transformer brick is cold after being plugged in to a live outlet, you will need to replace it (contact the manufacturer or read your documentation carefully to match the output voltage to the original). Alternatively get new speakers.

A final thing to try is in the control panel, under Administrative Tools, open the Component Services window. Stop any items related to your audio device and then restart them. Reboot the computer afterwards.

These are the most likely suspects and I hope this helps.

Tin like sound from small speakers only. No sound


switch on your speaker set in full volume unplug it from computer touch the plug , as you touch you can hear a sound ( loud hum sound) if the speaker is working. If okay then check the right jack, plug it into green color jack. you can try if your computer is okay use a headphone plug it into the jack in PC , if the computer is okay you may hear the sound.

Connecting speakers to Computer


In most cases the woofer plugs into the speaker which contains the power adapter plug, the green plug goes into the PC's audio out (usually a green plug on the back of the unit). When the USB is plugged into the machine the OS should plug and play the new hardware and may ask you to insert a driver disc if applicable.

After the OS has identified the new hardware and installed it you should be able to test additional audio out plugs if you are unable to hear sound from your first choice (again, ideally the green plug). There should also be a line out plug which may work for your purposes also.

If you are still having issues please post the model of your speakers so that we may look them up...

Connecting speakers to Computer


It's usually the green plug that you hook up speakers to. If you look closely at the sound card area of your computer, you will see little pictures telling you which one is for the mike, line in & speaker.

Check if your computer has a sound card available
Check on the back of your computer
Power up you set of speakers, some speakers doesn;t work without power

I have a set of Durabrand UC280 speakers. Pluged them into my cumputer. No sound. The speakers seem to work OK. Have checked systems and all say are working correctly. Any suggestions????


Are you sure you are plugged into the speaker output on your computer? Of not try the other outputs, and also make sure the volume is turned up and not muted on your computer, check by double clicking on the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your screen or by going to the sound applet in Control Panel.

Have you tried these speakers on another computer or with a CD player or MP3 player? If they don't work with another device either than you know there is a problem with your speakers.

Also make sure that the speakers are plugged into a power source if they require it, most likely they do.
