Question about Yamaha YST-MSW10 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Sound card in PC is operable

The sound card in my PC is operable since I can get sound directly through the two little speakers that came with my PC. However, when I use the Y cable connector to the speakers, I get no sound from either the Yamaha subwoofer nor the pair of little Creative brand speakers. I have tried going directly into the Yamaha speaker via the Y connector from the 1/8" female outlet on the back of the PC. That didn't work. Then I plugged the Creative speaker pair back into the PC and plugged the Yamaha subwoofer into the headphone jack on the pair of Creative speakers. That didn't work either. Back to the original setup with the two little speakers and I have audio through those. Any suggestions?

    Oops, my error! It's the 1/8" plug going into the back of the PC that is metal, band, metal, band and then metal. The two Y connectors, right and left, have no banding.

My speakers have very little sound. I have the volume on high but the sound doesn't increase.


Make sure the Master Volume is up and that you have your preferences set for your particular speakers and sound card. It could also be a bad diode in your speakers or on the audio card.

I have an older altec multimedia 3 pc. computer speaker system my software has been damaged and I need drivers the subwoofer is a ACS160 and the speakers are ACS55


These speakers should work as long as your computer has the drivers for the sound card. I need to know what sound card you have, make and model of the computer, and the operating system; in order to direct you to the driver download. If you know of a computer with an operational sound card, test them on it. The speakers are passive devices - they don't need drivers to operate.

I dont have ani more cd drive


Hi,

The X-530 are analog speakers. They do not require drivers, your sound card does. You should install the Sound/audio Drivers for the sound card.

What is the PC configuration ? Let me know the PC model and operating system or the sound card you are using for further help.

Regards,
FixYa

No audio driver installed after reformatting my PC


Direct sound is actually referring to Direct X drivers. Do a search for Direct X drivers and download and install the correct ones for your sound card and operating system. Also, if you think your sound card drivers maybe part of the problem go to the Sound Card manufacturer website and download the drivers for your sound card and operating system.

Dell Dimension 4700 PC Speaker No Sound


Check to make sure all cables are connected. After this you will need to click on your sound card properties and set it to 5.1. which will allow all the speakers to play.

Please note you will need to have a card that supports 5.1 sound I do not believe the stock card in the Dell supports this feature which could be the problem.

Sound is low


try to see if the wave volume is on and maximum on the volume panel ( double click on vol icon on tray system (right low) ) ...also see if your speakers are plugged into the proper place ...and are not in the auxiliary out or something like this ...they should be plugged into the green middle out ...if they are simple stereo 3,2 jack ...so ..if the problem its still on ..its probably the sound card...(actually the pre-amplifier on it ..)

Headphones will not work but speakers will.


Plug the headphones directly into the speaker port on the sound card, check for a mute button on the headphones. try another set of headphones to double check wether the first set is working.
