I have been given a Compaq desktop with XP professional and cannot get sound. do i need external speakers? Where do i find the model number?


any computer speakers you are going to get from best buy or similar store will work with a desktop computer, it will plug into the green headphone jack on the back of the PC. the small PC speaker in the desktop can not be used for sound from in windows in most cases.

Hello, I have a pair of JBL Platinum Series speakers linked to my PC, which are just a few months old. They were working well, but they have stopped working. Although the green light comes on when I turn...


Hi Lauren This is the process of elimination which i would follow in a similar situation: -check cable going from computer to speakers, make sure both ends are plugged in correctly; -ensure sounds are not muted on your computer;
-try to play a song using another program such as windows media player. If this works, it's most likely the iplayer program which has been muted. -If none of this has helped, try plugging the speakers into a different device, such as a stereo headphones jack, ipod headphones jack, even a TV headphones jack. If the speakers still do not work, they are probably no good.
Hope this helps, Benji

No Sound from External Speakers....only from Headset plug.


Hi, had same problem.... unscrew the remote and carefully remove the back end part of the stereo-connector (very careful !) it consists of a very small switch which moves sideways..... this switch is stuck into headphone-modus. Reassemble and it will work again
Note that speakers will work if you remove the switch

Dell studio xps no sound will come out of the speakers


I assume you mean the internal speakers.

First thing I would try is hooking up a set of headphones. If you can hear sounds thru the headphones then there could be an issue with the headphone jack. (the jack acts like a switch, switching OFF the speakers when you have a plug inside, and switching them back ON when you remove the plug).

If you dont hear sounds thru the headset or speakers, check your device manager, and remove/reinstall your audio driver. You can download the driver at the dell website Support.Dell.com.

How can I use the microphone on my headset? I have a Windows Vista and cant find the audio device.


Go to control panel and audio settings. Go to the voice tab and you can set the audio settings for your headset. If you have a sound card on the computer, the microphone jack is light pink and the sound jack is usually orange or green. Green is the color of the front channels and is usually shared with the headphones by using a splitter. The orange color of the headphone jack on some headphones is indicative of an aux. output such as the center back speakers of a 7.1 surround setup. If you have a USB set up, make sure to load the drivers and follow the prompts.

Can 2.1 pc speakers work thru headphone jacks?


No it's not possible to have a sound. Because the HDMI and the Headphone (3.5mm jack) are on two different technologies.

The monitor does not have a way to convert the sound from HDMI to Headphone.

There could be a converter that might convert the sound signal from HDMI to headphone (but I'm not sure).

I can not get a sound


Are you sure it's plugged into the right jack? Most computers have two green audio jacks in the back. One for speakers and one for a headset. If you plug it into the headset jack it won't work. Try the other jack maybe? If that doesn't work then try them with another computer. Find out if it's the computer or the speakers. If it's the computer then you might need a driver for it or just a new sound card.
