20 Most Recent Insignia 2.0 Speaker System (2-Piece) Questions & Answers


I'm going to vote for the haunted option.

Sound like you have some noise on your power lines. This can be caused from many different things. Normaly it is a motor going bad or a compressor starting up. From the AC unit or refrigerator.

See if you can correspond the noise to anything else happening in the house. Fridge starting up, AC or heat cycling on...etc.

It may be that you just have speakers and a cordless phone going bad at the same time.

It might just be Casper the friendly ghost playing tricks... ha!

Humming is usually caused by a bad capacitor on the power supply board. Look at the caps on the board, any that are puffed up, burned or leaking (brown at the base) need replacing. Make sure you get the EXACT same capacitors and pay attention to the orientation so you get them back in properly, if you dpn't you will fry them soon as you apply power to the board.

most likely a short in the wiring. Either on the speaker, or a short in the plugin jack.

Plug it into the audio output jack on the back of your Presario. There are probably 3 jacks that look like headphone jacks; use the green one. Don't forget to power on your speakers and ensure that the audio driver on the Presario is installed correctly.

Hi maggiepiano1
Check first if you plugged the jack in the right slot ( green ) .
Your speakers don' t need drivers but your sound card well . Check that also .

one speaker, the one with the volume control is the master that plugs into the computer. the other speaker should plug into the master speaker. Is you plug all the way pushed in to the back of the computer?

Hi taceeg06,
Have you check all the Volume setting on you computer?
On the lower right side look for the computer Icon check if there is a red X on the speaker Icon, if there is then it can be that here is something wrong with the speaker driver or it does not detect the speakers.
If you do not see the speaker Icon then the Driver for the Audio card is not installed on the computer and you may need to re install that Audio Card Driver to be able to regain the audio from your Speakers.
Also the speakers should connect to the Green Audio Jack behind the computer, if it is then still no Audio you can try the Audio Jack in front of the computer as well to check the Audio Card in the Machine, if the front and back audio jacks do not detect nor produce sound when the speakers are connected then re installing the driver for the Audio card may work, unless during the installation an error shows that the there is no audio device detected then it means the Audio Card is busted.
Let us hope not since it is very seldom an Audio Card could go busted.
I hope this helps.
Have nice day,
mvincentc

Hi there,

Without the speakers is there sound coming out of the laptop?

normally you just have to plug it to the headset port, it's usually a 3.5mm hole.

Make sure that the computer is not muted so that sounds will be coming out and adjust the volume from the computer itself.

Hope this helps!

Speaker Placement Before shopping for speakers, try to imagine where you're going to put them in your room. Speakers can be placed on floor stands, hung on wall brackets, or placed on furniture. Subwoofers typically sound best in room corners or near the left- or right-front speakers.
The front three--left, center, and right--speakers usually sound best when positioned with their tweeters elevated to the same height as a seated listener's ears. In any case, try to keep the center speaker near the same height as the left and right speakers.
You can place speakers on shelves or on/in a low cabinet or entertainment center. Some speakers are better suited to this arrangement than others. "Acoustic suspension" sealed satellites are the most appropriate. Next best are ported speakers--as long as the ports are located on the front of the cabinet. However, speakers with rear-mounted ports won't perform at their peak when placed inside a piece of furniture.
As for the rear-channel surround speakers, they usually sound best when positioned three or more feet higher than the front speakers. However, high-fidelity DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD music will sound best when surround speakers are placed at the same height (ear level) as the front speakers.
