What is wrong with my system? All plugs are in properly and volume is turned up. Blue light on front in lite.


If you're talking about speakers plugged into a Windows computer, then look in the lower right-hand corner near the time, and you should see a speaker icon. Right click that icon, and select "Open Volume Mixer" from the menu that pops up. On the mixer, make sure none of the volume levels are set to Mute.

If the levels look normal, try right-clicking on that speaker icon and selecting "Playback devices" from the menu that pops up. Do you see your speakers there? Is the green check mark on them? If not, click on the speaker, then click the "Set Default" button.

I've got a picture but sound is low although volume is on max


Start out by opening up your program material you want to view, such as video or movie.

If you are using the latest version of Windows such as 8 or 8.1, you will see a speaker Icon on the lower righthand side of your taskbar. Place your cursor on top of this icon and single click (left click) which will open up a mixer graphic. At the bottom of this graphic, click on the underlined word "mixer". This will open up a larger graphic will all of the volume controls you will need to adjust the volume level of the content you are viewing and listening to.

I hope this helps you.

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

My speakers volume is high and im not hearing anything


Is the sound card installed right? Is the driver up-to-date? Have you checked the Volume Mixer? When you right-click on the speaker icon and then click Open Volume Mixer or something similar. You can see if the sound is muted. I'm not an expert but this is what I can think of at the moment. :P

My logitech x240 surround powers on but no sound comes out....what could be the problem??


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.)

The mute wont turn on,on the dell inspiron


Have you tried going into the speaker settings? We'll assume with a new PC you have Vista installed, click the speaker icon on the right side of the tray, and selecting "Mixer" will enable access to volume control for the output devices and for applications.

If no speaker icon is visible To check the volume controls in Windows Vista, click Start and then click Control Panel. Choose Hardware And Sound and then click Adjust System Volume under the Sound section. The Volume Mixer window will open, and you should see volume sliders for Device and Applications. Click and drag the sliders to view the volume level percentages. If the speaker icons show a circle with a red slash, click the icon so the speakers are no longer muted.

Furthermore, you’ll want to double-check all of your master volume and mute settings.
