Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers

4 Answers

They need installing

I bought a computer on ebay, and they had just installed a fresh version of windows onto it, when i put my speakers into it, everything present and correct, they don't make any sound, no music etc. on the volume control it says theres no hardware attatched, this happened on my old computer too, i had to download something but i cant for the life of me remember what it was.

any ideas??? please...i neeeed my music!!!! My 4 year old (approx.) ATP3 Altec Lansing Speakers don't work. I had Geel Squad hook them up with my new HP Pavilion a6120n computer last summer but during a remodeling project the computer and hardware was disconnected and since then I can't get the speakers to work. I think I have them hooked up right and I checked the Sound set up in Control Panel. Of, course, I am no hardware expert. Is there a free driver I can download to see if that's the problem? Thanks!

You need the drivers for the sound card.
Looking at the hp website this is a vista pc and no original drivers for xp.

The problem is that you have no sound driver installed. Think of the sound card inside of your computer as a car, and like a car it can't work without a driver. A driver is basically software that controls the hardware. However in order to further assist you I need to know the make and model.

Let me know and I can assist further.

After installation of Windows XP professional there is no sound on my Compaq Presarion CQ60 computer. Can you please help.


A fresh installation of Windows usually doesn't have support for integrated sound, so you'll need to install the sound driver software. You can download what you need from HP. "CQ60" is a big family of models, so you'll need to pick your specific model from this page. Then you'll be able to pick the drivers you need for your computer. You should also download and install the video drivers as well. This will make sure you get the full performance from your computer's video.

I have logitech x 230 speakers. When i use my old computer i just plug them in and they work. i installed an additional OS to my old computer; windows xp professional. The speakers were not even recog


You may need to install the audio drivers for those systems. If the sound is built onto the mainboard, you'll need the motherboard model number to help locate the drivers online. You can look for them yourself through a search engine, or if you'd like, get back to me with the model numbers of the motherboards, and I will locate your drivers. The model number of the motherboard should be printed directly on the motherboard itself.

Need to install speakers onto my computer


This would be a fix but if you do not mind that its not the same as the subwoofer is to buy two sat speakers from radioshack with the plug that goes into the subwoofer.

Speakers are not being recognised


i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck
