I am unable to get

I don't know what is the operating system you are using with your computer.Still we can check, first we need to find out if the problem is with the speaker or with the computer.

Try these steps
  • connect those speakers with other computer check the sound, if you are getting sound there it means speakers are ok need to check computer audio setup and hardware.
  • If you are not getting any sound connecting speakers with other computer then it is speakers need to replace.

Incase speakers are ok Disconnect the speakers

  • restart the computer,check if there is windows sound if not
  • right click on the volume control icon on the left hand button corner of the screen,uncheck the mute option.still not getting any sound?
  • try to download the audio driver from the dell support site.still not getting
  • need to check the internal speaker connection,if it is fine
  • go to this website http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and click on Restore sound -windows Audio service and run the tweak,YOU NEED TO USE INTERNET EXPLORER
  • still you cannot hear the sound change the internal speaker.

Where do I plug speaker


If you're using a desktop, look at the back of the tower. You will see there a small green port where you can plug in the speakers.

If you're using a laptop. Look at the front side of the laptop, Try to look for an small icon that looks like headphones. That's where you're gonna plug your speakers in.

Hope this helps!

Well they were completely delted and uninstalled

Howdy. Those speakers do not require drivers. Your speaker set up is dealt with in audio set up in most versions of windows and most Macs. Almost all speakers are plug and play now. If you are having audio issues, it is usually the sound card or sound drivers. To check for sound issues, you can use a sat of headphones to test the audio connection, it helps isolate the issue to either the speakers or the computer. If you still run into trouble, check back and we will get you going somehow:) Good luck.

Double check the connections are correct, try uninstall and then reinstall the audio drivers. Make sure you have the Audio drivers to reinstall 1st... You can find a copy of the Audio drivers from dell for your Motherboard to download if you no longer have the disk.

The light wokes but the sound does not work

Do you have the speaker wires attached correctly? One should connect the left and right speakers, and the other should connect to the speaker audio port on your computer (should be the light green one).

Speakers/Audio problem

This isn't going to have anything to do with your speakers. It will be something in your system settings that deals with Internet or Video. Check your Sound card selections and your equalizer settings to make sure you don't have it muted somehow.

Have no sound, do I need to download something

first check if a pair of headphones works if notmake sure ur speakers have power going to them make sure speakers are plugged into the the right audio output (usually light green color in the back of ur computer) check (if ur using a PC) in control panel-sound settings, if your sound card is ENABLED. you can also go to control panel-device manager, and look for an yellow exclamation points(if you see one next to, lets say sound card, it will mean that you need to download drivers for your sound card) if ur computer is dell then go to www.dell.com and look for support option, drivers, etc. any other brand PC, just find it on google, go to manufacturer's website and follow the same format...support....drivers. hope this helps

Check out every aspect of your speakers in order to diagnose the exact problem. Note the sound your speakers are making, if any, and check to see if the speakers are unusually hot during use. These can all be symptoms of the problem.
Make sure the problem is with the speakers and not the computer itself. Check the connections from the speakers to the computer while the speakers are turned on and the volume is turned up. Many times, fixing dead air from computer speakers is as simple as un-clicking the mute control.
Check the volume of your computer to ensure is not on mute, if it is on mute, remove from mute to unmute.

Also, you will need to install the audio driver for your computer's motherboard in order for your speaker to work. Use your motherboard support disc to install the driver.with all this,

If the problem is still unsolve, Write down the make, model and serial number of your computer speakers. Find the respective Web site of your speakers' manufacturer such dell. Read through any self-help sections on the site and write down any tech support phone number you find.Seek advice from a local electronic vendor, such as Best Buy or through the computer's manufacturer, such as Dell. These sites or the tech help support line can at least point you in the right direction to accurately diagnose the problem.

Take care.
