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?

NO SOUND OUTPUT


Reasons can be:
1. you have a corrupt driver.in that case uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
2.the device or the driver is not supported by the OS.
3.check whether the speakers are working properly , hold speakers one by one close to your ear while it is on you should hear a hissing sound confirming that they are alright.
4. change the port of the sound card see if that works
5. and if none of the above works it has to be the sound card itself.
think servicing before buying another sound card.

Solid Red light on hp compaq 6000, instead of green light. Does any one know why?


Yes, it means a bad Power Supply.

Try cleaning out the inside of the computer first. Use a can or two of compressed air for computers.
{Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed}

How to open the computer case:

1) Work on a table
2) Computer unplugged from power
3) All cables removed from desktop unit
4) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

Under the Service and information heading, left-click on the second file listed -

Maintenance and Service Guide: HP Compaq 6000 Pro Microtower Business PC

(11Sep2009 / PDF / 11.15MB )

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

{Took 22 seconds for the first page to come up, and no additional download time. Using medium speed DSL connection }

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign to the left of - Removal and Replacement Procedures Small Form Factor (SFF) Chassis, then on Access Panel

Or go to Page 123 using the page number box at the top, and the Down Arrow.

Clean the inside of the computer out. pay special attention to the Processor Fan, and the finned Heatsink under it.
Also use the plastic straw in the Power Supply's ventilation holes. Try to clean out the inside of the Power Supply the best you can.

(Hold onto the plastic straw with one hand, and the can of air with the other hand. If you do not, the plastic straw may come loose, and shoot inside the case of the Power Supply)

After cleaning close the computer case, reattach all cables, plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Then it's time to replace the Power Supply.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/HP-Compaq,6000-Pro,Computer,Power-Supply.aspx

The exact Product Number (P/N) is on a white Service Tag. On the back of the computer, or on the side. Usually next to the Windows product key.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Sound


Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double click the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and the Volume bar is at least 1/2 way on the Volume tab. Also click the Speaker Volume tab and adjust the sound there as well if needed. You might also want to check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" icon so you can easily adjust the sound settings next time.

Computer not recognizing speakers


There should be something in your sound, video, and game controllers that says something like "Realtek High Definition Audio". Double click on that, and make sure that it is enabled. If this entry is completely missing, reboot, and enter the BIOS setup (I'm not sure how that works on your specific PC) and make sure that the onboard sound is enabled there.

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.
