Hi

Speakers are usually very simple to set up. If they are standard speakers then all you should need to do is plug them in at the mains, and then plug them into the correct port on the back of your computer. There are three holes the same size for speakers/headphones, microphone and possibly video. I'd suggest putting some music on (use windows media player or go to playlist.com) then plugging the speaker cable into each hole in turn - one of them should work. Make sure that the speakers are turned on and that the volume is turned up. Also if you go to Start>>>All Programs>>>Accessories>>>Entertainment>>>Volume Control and make sure that the volume there is set to at least halfway for each and that the mute box is not checked for any.

If this does not work then there may be a problem with your soudcard or with the speakers themselves. Try using headphones and if this works then you know that there's a problem with the speakers.

Hope this helps!
Philip

My lenco speaker has stopped working


If you have powered speakers and they work on other devices, such as; a pocket radio, recorder, etc.; then you need to reset the output to your speakers on the computer. Go to the lower right Icon (Speaker symbol) click on it. Go to System Sounds and see if the speakers are set correctly. If no check Marks indicate the external speakers are set, make your option set to your external speaker set.

I ploged my speakers into my computer and im not geting any sound


You need more information on your post.
Do the speakers also have a power supply? If so is it plugged in?
Do you have it connected to the correct jack in the computer? It should be green and labeled "audio out".
If they are plugged in and connected correctly and still not working try these steps.
There should be a little icon on the bottom right hand side of your screen that looks like a side profile of a speaker click on it and make sure you have volume set to an audible level and that it is not muted.
If after you have gone through all these steps your speakers are still not working 'right click' on the same speaker icon in bottom right of your screen and click on "playback devices".
In the window that pops up "speakers" should be set as default (green check-mark next to the speakers icon). If not click on "speakers" , and click on the "set as default" button at the bottom of the pop up window, then click "OK".

If none of these troubleshooting steps work check to see if the speakers themselves work by plugging them into another computer (a friends if you only have the one computer in the house), or by trying a different set of speakers on your computer.

I am having trouble with the speakers making any sound when I hook the speakers into the Rear Panel (RL RR) of my computer but the speakers work if I use them in the headphone jack. The subwoofer works...


The main reason why the rear speakers are not working because the sound you are playing are not surround sound or a not a stereo sound and check the setting of your speaker. There is an output sound in your speaker but to low because of the set up of your speakers. Try to set it in Hall, Church, or any set up you will notice that there is difference with there volume in every set up.

The speakers wont work when i plug them into the computer so what do i do ?


Try connecting the speakers to another computer, to see if they work at all.

Try connecting a different set of speakers to your computer, to see if your computer is creating sound (not "muted" ???).

Both right speakers not working


Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.
