Check volume settings on computer, might as well check the drivers
try the speakers with another source (iPod)

Are the speakers powered?

    If they are powered, make sure they are plugged in and receiving power. (Duh, I know...)

    If they are not powered (that is, the don't plug into wall power), then make sure they are connected to the "Line Out" audio jack, not the "Headphone" audio jack.

    Usually the Line Out is Blue, Headphone is Green, and Mic Input is Red (though Compaq may have done some custom coloring like HP did way back when...)

    Speakers do not need a driver. They are just electromagnetic devices, not computing devices.

    I'd hazard the guess that the problem still lies in the audio settings--maybe the headphone-out setting differs from the speakers-out setting.

    Do you have some additional "volume sliders" in your Audio Control Panel that differentiate between speakers and headphones?

When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.

If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.

I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.


I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.

Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

I have lost my speakers on the monitor. Using Microsoft XP, they were working but now they are not. Did some driver updates then lost the sound on the monitor. Checking the control panel indicates that...


Sounds like you've lost audio output from the sound card. Unplug the audio cable from the sound card and plug in a set of ear buds or headphones. If you don't get any sound your driver's not working. Try reinstalling the old driver.

Left earbud completely silent.


Hi,what makes the left hear completely silent it because the wire inside the left side ear bud might have cut and it's not contacting with the speaker inside the ear bud.

What you will do is this, open the left ear bud that is not working, check if the connection is not properly fix. Also after checking if the wires are intact, if the wires inside are intact with no trace of cut inside,that means that the speaker inside is damaged and will need to be replaced..

If you can't do it your self, I would advice you contact a skilled personnel for help.


Thanks for using fixya....

Only one ear working


Hi, what makes the earpiece not working, is that the wire inside the speaker area where you put inside the ear is faulty.

Loose the head of that small speaker, you will see the wire that has removed, use a soldering iron and a lead to fix it back.After fixing back, you can start using it again.

have a nice day.

I five klh speakers and bose amplifier, how can i connect it to my home hp pc


Perhaps you can specify which Bose amplifier you have. Presumably it drives the 5 speakers. Can you specify which computer you have? Do you have an add-on sound card? Does your computer have a 4 or more channel output? That is a different matter. Do you want the highest possible audio quality?

I'm going to assume the simplest configuration here.

1) There are two likely auxiliary input jacks for the Bose amp. One is a single 1/8" stereo jack. This jack would fit your ear bud headphones. Try this with it turned off. The other option are dual RCA jacks. These have a center opening around a cylinder about the size of a pencil. The center opening is about the size of that ear bud plug, but don't try and put it in there. The cylinder outside will have a metal ring.

2) Determine the output of your computer sound card. It is most likely a 1/8" stereo jack, so try your ear buds with it turned off. Many computers have a headphone jack and then a speaker jack. The speaker jack may be color coded green. You should be able to drive off of either of these but you will want to control the volume on your computer appropriately because the speaker output may drive too strongly for your Bose. Turn the volume up slowly.

So, then you need to go buy a cable. Here are two likely possibilities:

a) 1/8" stereo male to dual RCA male
for example: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3449316
b) 1/8" stereo male to male

Desktop speakers don't work on Compaq 6000


Things to check:

- Do they have an adapter (wall wart) that is plugged in to an AC outlet and one of the speakers?
- Do you have the 'Line' connector on the system (rear of unit) connected to one of the speakers?
- Are the speakers connected to each other? (One has the amplifier, the other is just a slave)
- Is your audio chip or card shown on the device driver?
(Go to start/control panel/system/hardware/device manager - look for Sound)

Make sure it isn't on Mute.
