Hi Michael,

you can check the your colour system changed by mistakenly by yourself to go to setting and ,also try to re tune the channels or one channel.
if problem still there check the your tv has sound output socket or hedphone socket.
try with hedphones.

if not you must need to go to repair professional .if head phone working. it is a problem of your internal speaker or hedphone socket itself.

Mixvibes U-MIX44 doesn't give sound in games

Right-click the speaker icon in the Notification area and look at all Playback settings; some settings might be muted, or not selected. There might be two speaker icons if you're running special software for the soundcard.

I hear music on stereo not 5.1 im with x-530 wtf is the problem??!?!?

HI , this means that your soundcard is not 5.1 Channel , and the speakers are , and 5.1 = Surround Sound , without a 5.1 Channel Sound card you will only be able to obtain Stereo out of it...
Sound cards are cheap these days , look for one and it will work perfectly.

Computer speakers play CDs or iTuners, but no system sounds or online sounds. Computer does not recognize that speakers are attached, so I can't adjust volume. Everything worked normally several months...

this is an issue with your soundcard. the easiest thing for you to do would be to go and pick up a cheap internal soundcard ($10 - $200) and just use it instead.

I am glad to hear that atleast 85% of your problem is solved.
Now coming to the sound drivers,when you purchased the speakers you must have got a cd with that.Just use that to install the sound drivers on your mac pc.If you dont have the cd then give me the make and the model no. of the speakers i'll try to find the drivers online and then give you the link.

Have a great weekend.

Speakers 2.0 durabrand not registering

If both sets work on one computer, but none of them work on the problem machine, then it's not the speakers that are at fault, but rather the computer you're plugging them into.

As you are getting a "No Audio Devices" message, and the speakers get their signal from your systems soundcard, the soundcard drivers may not be installed, or working properly (the USB plug, it seems, only serves to power the speakers, nothing else).

Open up Device Manager, and look for your soundcard, and/or any devices marked with a Question (?) or Exclamation (!) Mark. Install/reinstall the drivers for any of these that you see. If you don't see anything marked as such, locate your soundcard under the "Sound and Audio devices" header, and reinstall it.

(NOTE: You can get to device manager in Windows XP, by going to Start-> Run -> type in "Control", and press ENTER. From the window that pops up, make sure you're using Classic View, then go to System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.)

If you DON'T, however, see either unknown devices or your soundcard listed in Sounds and Audio Devices, reseat your soundcard in it's PCI slot or a different slot in your machine, boot up your computer, and see if it's recognized. if it isn't, or if you're using an onboard sound solution, you may have to replace your soundcard, as it's defective.

Hope this helps :~)
