Volume loss


Laptop or Desktop ?
Try swapping the speakers around to see if the problem is in the speaker itself.

Volume problems on computers often happen for a variety of reasons.

Volume troubleshooting, however, is one of the easiest problems to troubleshoot because there are only a few things that usually cause the problems.


Usually the problem isn't even an error but just merely an adjustment that needs to be made.

Test your speakers.


This is the first thing you should check if you can't hear anything coming out of your computer. First try turning up the volume know and make sure you are in fact turning the volume knob and not a tone or balance knob.


Make sure the speakers are completely plugged in to the wall and the computer. Test with another set of speakers or headphones after you have done this.


Check the computer volume level.

On the taskbar is a volume icon, which usually looks like a small speaker.


Click on the icon and turn the volume up.

Make sure it has not been muted.


Double clicking on the icon will bring up a panel of several volume controls.

Try turning up the volume on each slider.


Go to Control Panel and choose "Sounds and Audio Devices."

Under the volume tab, click speaker volume and turn up the level if needed.


Turn up the application volume. Most programs that use sound have an additional volume control just for that program.


Find the volume control and turn it up.

Usually it is located in the lower right or left corner on the program, but you may have to search for it.


Troubleshoot the sound card.

Download the latest drivers from your sound card manufacturer's website.


Go to Control panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Click on "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."

Click on your sound card, select the driver tab and then click on "Update Driver."


Point to the file where you saved the latest drivers from the website.

After this, restart your computer.


The speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side


you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity


clean your computer of dust using a can of compressed air or fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer



If this doesn't solve your problem, try reseating the sound card into your computer.


Hope this helps

Just intalled the speakers but can't hear anything


Here are some things to check for: -Is the power on? There will be a light on the speakers that show it has power. -Is the audio cable plugged in to the right spot? Most likely, the cable will need to be plugged in to a green colored jack on the back of your computer. -Make sure the volume is turned up -- it's the knob on the speaker that you turn.

Speakers have no sound


Please check the below mentioned things :
Verify the AC power cord is plugged into the wall outlet. Turn the VOLUME knob on the right speaker until you hear a click sound. An LED will light next to the knob when the power is ON. Turn the VOLUME knob clockwise to raise the volume. Check volume level on the computer sound card or alternate audio source device, and set at mid-level. Check plug connections on the audio source. Make sure the signal cables are inserted firmly into the correct jacks. Make sure the 3.5mm stereo cable is connected and fully inserted into the "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of the audio source. Test the speakers on another audio device. Remove the 3.5mm stereo cable from the audio source device and connect it to "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of another audio source.
And if in in case u r unable to get it working ..
Replace the speakers ..

It shows the speakers are on but no sound


If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

Try to blow it out with compressed air. Then, with the speakers turned off, turn the volume knob to full volume and back as quickly as you can (without damaging the switch) three or four times. This should take about one second for three movements. Undertake this at your own risk. Turn them on and see if it has helped. Do not just keep doing this. if it doesn't help immediately stop. if it does help, repeat blowing out and repeat the knob turning, once.
