I bought a set of X-230 speakers but can't get any sound at all from the right-hand one. Is the problem in my sound card? I've been trying to update the driver for an ESS 1969 card, on a Windows XP system, but can't work out how to install the update from the unzipped files...??
Or could the right speaker possibly be faulty? The volume control and LED are both working fine, and the left and bass speakers sound great. But no SOUND... :( I'm so frustrated, I hope someone can help! :)

Swap left and right speaker
This will prove either the speaker is dud or the amp channel is dud. one the speaker set.
Now plug headphones in the line out of the computer. Got one side or both sides - this prove the sound card.
Regarding the zipped downloads - double click onn the file - it should be self unsipping

First, you can try unplugging and replugging the speakers. If that doesn't work, right-click on the speaker icon in the taskbar (lower right-hand corner) and select "Playback Devices". When the window opens, you should see your internal and external speakers listed. (Maybe Internal Speakers and "Headphones") Just right-click the option that says corresponds to your speakers and select "Set as Default Device". Close your web browser and re-open it. This should fix the problem.
the speaker with the subwoofer may not work as the speaker needs a power supply to boost the sound from the PC.....even if you connect to the sound jack of PC using some adaptor it may not give out the required sound.....i mean it will need amplifyer, the job of the amplifyer is normaly done by the big box that comes along with the speakers (called subwoofer).....
As long as the jack you are using fits snug into the port, they will be the right size. I am sure that they are the same size. As for the jack port, some can be finicky like that. It is more than likely your sound card that is at fault. You can check the connection on your card by removing it with the computer off and inspect it for a loose connection within the jack port and around it. Plug in the speakers slowly and see where it is not contacting. Some do it yourselfers can fix this by replacing the port or re soldering a bad connection
Go to Start/Programs/accessories/entertainment/volume control.
And check the left channel as not be muted by ticking the mute box.
Check also all other sources of channel control- via the sound card and the computer built in one.
