Can't get sound


Make sure that the driver for your audio chip is connected and working. If not a driver issue then maybe something has gone wrong with the audio circuits in your laptop.

if your headphones do not work either you might try one of those new usb audio cards that sell for about 2 dollars on ebay.. U plug it into usb port and then plug a pair of speakers into it and voila, audio on the cheap.

MY OLD INSIGNIA SPEAKERS (WITHA SUB-WOOFER) WENT UP SO I GOT A SIMPLE 2 SPEAKER INSIGNIA 2.0 POWERED SPEAKERS. NOW I CANT GET ANY SOUND. ANY THOUGHTS?


1. Try looking in the taskbar of the Windows screen and selecting the volume control ( a speaker icon) check the mixer see if the volume is not muted or in the "0" position
2.Check the "input port on the sound card where you connected the new speaker assembly.
3. Check the volume control knob on the speaker assembly to see if it is not in the off or lowest volume position.
4. Check the new speaker by connecting them to another computer that has the sound already on and working this will let you know that the speaker assembly is good.
6. check the sound card drivers to the internal sound card that is on the mother board if this is where your sound card is located. Use the "manager" to see if it is working properly. If not then do a "reinstall of the sound card drivers or use the "update feature in the hardware window for the sound card to install the latest version of sound card drivers.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

your laptop doesn't have a sound card. It's integrated.
you can try to update the driver if that does not work check if you have the right device on default in the sound panel, if it still doesn't work run the diagnostics on the speakers, and if it make any sound in the diagnostics there something wrong with the os,
If not then you'll need to replace internal speakers.

Computer Doesn't Recognize Wired Speakers


The problem from your description would probably be that your USB audio devices has taken over as primary sound device

This a regular thing with USB audio equipment

Call up the volume control properties and under properties for playback make sure the USB device is NOT at the top of the list.

If it is you need to relegate it to second place.

Do that from the "adjust audio properties" then select the Audio tab and work from there to change the DEFAULT device.

Your description of the problem was great and gave me the info to work out what I think you need.

If it is let us know by responding to this post.

On my G5 1.8 single processor PMac the sound is deteriorating; what may i do to fix it? I play the same CD in my home system and there is not distortion but there is in the Mac even when using headphones....


make sure the power coder is pulled before you do any thing.
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work

yes there is a way to replace the sound cards.but i don't think they deteriorate.it sounds like three things can
be wrong. one your speakers.your speakers could be at fault .two your cd drive.try a a pair of speaker
that are know to work.with the original drive.

if you can and aren't afraid of opening up your case wich you got to do
to replace anything.borrow a compatible cd drive frome someone that knows that it works fine
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work and
take the cords that are hook up to your and cd drive and hook them up to the borrowed drive. you can let
it dangle there instead of putting it in the tower . turn on your computer and wait about 5 min and then try the
cd.if the sound is good problem solved..

the last problem could be that your sound card is bad or a driver is not installed

Centre Speaker No Sound


i can think of two things., you may need to do the update on your sound card and computer and make sure you have the correct codec's installed or also you may need to go to the web site of the makers of your logitech speakers and see if they have a common solution for this problem...... i also wonder if you should bypass the sound card and directly connect your speaker system to the out put port on your computer ..... give it a try what can it hurt .... if all else fails maybe there is a faulty wire in the speaker system ....... ahy ?

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

Sound only in 1 Speaker Instead of Two


not sure if this will help, go to your control panel and then to your sound and audio devices, on the volume tab check to see if both speakers are set to high on the speaker volume option

hope it helps

Overload Problem


If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly
