Speakers wont come on


Lets start with the basics.
1. Make sure the power cord to the computer speakers are plugged in. Check at the wall and make sure the power cord is connect to the back of the speaker. If there is a power button make sure it is pressed in the on position. Make sure the volume level is turned up.
2. Check the computer and make sure the sound is not on mute. Turn the volume level up from the computer settings.
3. Try playing some music. If you hear sound you are good to go.
4. If you are not able to hear anything than continue. I would suggest plugging your speakers into you cell phone. Try playing some music from your cell phone.
5. If music plays through the speakers from your cell phone, something is wrong with the computer. If no sound plays with your cell phone then something is wrong with the speakers.
6. If worse comes to worse bring your computer into a computer store. Tell the salesman you want to buy a new set of speakers. You just want to make sure your computer works with the speakers before you buy them.
7. If all else fails, ask a local tech you trust.

Audio will play on internal speakers only


Are you plugging the external speakers into the right port? Try plugging them into the Headphone port if there is no external speaker port. Make sure you have the external speakers turned on and the volume turned up. Also make sure you have the software in the computer to have the volume turned up and not muted. Check the audio sound properties and make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Click Start/Control Panel then look for Audio or Sound and check the volume.

You can also click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time to adjust the volume and check for mute.

I hooked up the speakers to the back of the PC with the matching green plug in. The speakers are on and working but no sound is coming out. I also clicked on the speaker icon and turned the volume all the...


The first thing to do is to determine if it is the speakers or the computer that is having issues. Plug the speakers into an MP3 play, disk player or some other audio device that has a headphone jack and verify they work. If they do, then you need to determine why the computer is not sending sound to the jack. When you right click on the speaker icon, and select "Open volume mixer" there should be multiple sliders to turn up. Make sure the internal speaker/headphone jack volume is up (and mute not selected) as well as the "applications / windows sounds" volume. comment back to me if you require further assistance and if so, include the model computer and operating system in your comments. Good-luck - Subdriver

I cant get my speakers on my computer to work


Computer speakers are specially designed for a computer desktop environment. They are smaller than normal stereo speakers and often have built in volume controls and amplifiers. In most cases, you can plug in your computer speakers and have them work immediately. Occasionally, however, you will need to adjust your computer sound settings to get them to work correctly.
  1. Step 1 Plug your speakers into each other. Most PC speakers have a detachable cord that goes between them. Powered speakers have a cord that plugs into the wall, which may be detachable as well.
  2. Step 2 126401_thumb.jpg Image Courtesy of: http://www.hardware.windowsreinstall.com/soundcards.htm Look at the sound card output in the back of your computer. If your soundcard has three colored jacks, plug into the green one. If it does not have colored jacks, plug into the one next to the jack with the picture of a microphone. Plug the power supply into a wall socket.
  3. Step 3 Turn on the speaker, turn up the speaker volume and play some music. If it doesn't work, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Turn your volume up on whatever media player you are using. If the music still doesn't play, continue to step 5.
  5. Step 5 Go to the volume settings. If you are using windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif, click Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control.
  6. Step 6 Adjust the volume settings. Use your mouse to drag the main "Volume Control" slider and the "Wave" slider all the way to the top. If either of them have the "Mute" box checked, uncheck it. Try the sound again.

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

Have external gateway speakers


First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

You need to install the drivers for your soundcard. Try to find out what model of soundcard do you have and what version of Windows and try to search for the specific driver on the internet.
You can try these websites:
http://www.driverguide.com/
http://www.soft32.com/c/Windows/Drivers/2-52.html
Here's a tutorial on how to install a driver: http://www.totallydrivers.com/resources/directions_installation.asp
If you still can't hear sound try these steps, maybe it's not from your soundcard:
-Plug in the speakers
-Turn on the speakers.
-Turn-up the volume in Windows and on the speakers.
-Uncheck the mute checkbox in sound control panel.
-Verify a sound should be playing. In the Control Panel, play some Windows sounds. Play a music CD.
-Plug the speakers into the right hole on the sound card.
-Are the speakers plugged into the sound card and not the MODEM?
-Is the sound card installed correctly?
-Is the power converter for the speakers plugged into a wall outlet or surge protector?
-Is the power converter plugged into the speakers?
-Try other speakers or a head phone?
