Adjust your sound or check the volume on the speakers itself, or try adjusting the sound on the computer, and check the sound card

I ploged my speakers into my computer and im not geting any sound

You need more information on your post.
Do the speakers also have a power supply? If so is it plugged in?
Do you have it connected to the correct jack in the computer? It should be green and labeled "audio out".
If they are plugged in and connected correctly and still not working try these steps.
There should be a little icon on the bottom right hand side of your screen that looks like a side profile of a speaker click on it and make sure you have volume set to an audible level and that it is not muted.
If after you have gone through all these steps your speakers are still not working 'right click' on the same speaker icon in bottom right of your screen and click on "playback devices".
In the window that pops up "speakers" should be set as default (green check-mark next to the speakers icon). If not click on "speakers" , and click on the "set as default" button at the bottom of the pop up window, then click "OK".

If none of these troubleshooting steps work check to see if the speakers themselves work by plugging them into another computer (a friends if you only have the one computer in the house), or by trying a different set of speakers on your computer.

For some reason my speaker is getting a distorted sound the more volume i put and it's very little that i put on, plus the light is dimming and then going off completely until i lower the volume

The speakers' power supply is damaged.
Could be easy to fix for an electronics-savvy amateur with a soldering iron.

If the power supply is external (a wall cube) you may try to get a replacement one with same voltage and plug, and equal or greater current rating.

My computer does not sound without external speakers

The only sound you get with a computer with no external speakers is the onboard speaker which is used to give the bios beeps. If you really want one of these Maplins have them, you plug it into the 4 pin connector near the Fpanel on the motherboard (should be printed on the mobo).

Speakers Not Working

It sounds like the driver for your sound card may be missing. Look in Control Panel / System / Hardware / Device Manager. Under "Sound Video and Game Controllers" is there anything with an X or and !.

If so you'll need to re-install the driver for the sound card. If everything in device manager looks fine - let's check the volume settings found under Control Panel / Sound.

Please let me know if this has been helpful or if you have any further questions. Thank you.

No sound from my BA745 speakers

Make sure you have the right speaker wire (green plug to green socket)
You should have three wires going into the right speaker, the left speaker, sub woofer, and the power wire...and one wire coming out as mentioned above.
double click on the speaker (lower right corner of the monitor) and make sure the volume levels are normal. And too check the volume level on the right hand speaker.
hope this does it for you,
PLease leave rating...thank you

There is no easy way to tell you this. The smaller speakers usually plug into the large speaker. The large speaker is the sub and has a power source for the other speakers.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

Computer speakers work but external speakers do not

hello there!
First Things First:
1) Check if your external Speakers are connected on the external sound card output connector **
2) Check on control panel and multimedia if your sound card (external) is enable, and not MUTED sound. Rise the volume.
3) check cables from Speakers and see if not old or broke.
Good Luck
