Ya, I think this is a digital/analog problem - the speaker's male jack is only 2 conductor, not the three required for analog stereo. My Ipod won't come over the speakers either, but 3 conductor headphones work great on the computer rear jack, so hardware/drivers NOT the problem. Still researching, but think I need new analog speakers. Not much about this problem around, but I think this is the answer.
Did you install the sound driver in your new computer?
That is the first issue you should try. If the little speaker appearr at the lower right of the screen then the spearkers should be ready to go.

Are you sure there is no onbaord sound it should look like microphone or headphone socket holes. If it does then you are needing the correct driver. Open the tower and check what motherboard you ahve then post again for the correct driver.
If there is no sound onboard then it is very simple to install a pci soundcard anf they are very cheap. I certainly wouldn't go buying a new tower for just sound. Google on installing a pci card and you will see how easy it actually is or ask a young friend they know heaps about computers.
I don't know if I caused the problem or not. I hooked up my new Hannspree HF237 monitor to my HP pc, and the sound wasn't loud enough so I hooked up my external speakers, and got nothing. So I disabled one without the other, and still got nothing. Now I can't even get the monitor's sound to come back on. Any ideas?
check if any other speakers are working
If not try and install the drivers for sound ,if the other speakers work ,try and check the compatibility of the speakers with he new system and windows vista.
The best thing is get in touch with the hardware vendor from whomsoever you bought this and they will let you know about the compatibility and if its the drivers and other support you can visit http://h18000.www1.hp.com/
No drivers for your soundcard, this is a computer issue not a speaker issue, contact dell, if you can understand a word they say, ask them "I have Dimension (model number here), I need to know how to install my sound drivers", if you dont know how to do this.
I just got a new HP and the BA735s will not work with this computer. I can only use headphones right now. I connected the jack to every sound output and got nothing. I read that the BA computer speakers were manufactured for Gateway. Does that mean they will only work with a Gateway system?
exactly the same problem and description.
sound card was installed by dell (vista operating sys) and is shown to be working properly.
have tried everything already suggested and still don't work.
headphones work in test mode only.
I have the same problem. I have a Asus M2a-vm micro ATX motherboard and my Boston speakers will not work with the internal sound card. I had to put my old sound blaster live sound card back in and use it to get my speakers to work. My head phones work great though. Could this be caused by the speakers being digital speakers? I would just like an answer to this problem if there is one. I went though all the trouble shooting but nothing helped.
I Have a compaq computer.and my boston ba735 speakers don't work.but other speakers do.
