Before tinkering with the unit,please check the manual that came with the product inside its box/packaging.Make sure that u have fully understood the instructions provided by the manufacturer. 1.Have you checked the power source at your house? 2.Does the product require voltage a specific voltage, 110V or 220V? 3.Have you checked if you have placed the connections inputs/outputs properly? 4.Another thing, have you tested the item before you bought and paid for it? If tested at the store, did it work? 5.Was it damaged during transport to your place? 6.Check also the warranty. Finally,call up the store because tinkering with it might void the product warranty.

I can't turn up the volume n my laptop

Which operating system ?

Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers. These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop. If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse.

Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control. Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting. Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume. Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted. Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio. Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar. Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category. Hope this helps

I used the left hand pad on the control unit to reduce the volume to nothing, and cannot get the level back up again. matthew

  1. Check the power connections on your speakers, make sure that the power LED's on the small speakers are lit.
  2. Make sure the green cable is connected to the computer's speaker port (Usually a green headphone-type jack) and also the the speaker- a similar type jack.
  3. Adjust system volume 2_6_2012_8_52_14_pm.png by clicking, drag volume slider bar up to about 75%, and release.
  4. Turn up speaker's volume using the volume (and bass volume) knob on the main speaker.
  5. Play an audio file. Note that if you are using Windows Media Player, etc. you may need to turn volume up there also.
  6. If you are still having trouble go to start/control panel and select sounds. This will show your installed audio devices. If there are no devices, then please provide the make model, etc. of your computer and I will go from there.
  7. Test the devices in another setting will help identify a hardware problem. For example, test your speakers with an MP3 player, or your computer's CD-ROM usually has a headphone jack; test the audio on your PC with a set of headphones, or another set of speakers. If either of these fail it may indicate a hardware problem. Feel free to post back any additional information and I will try to provide further help. Please include your make, model, and version of windows so I can provide specific info for your PC.
I found the following info on your speakers, which you may also find helpful:

Very weak sound from ibm t42 thinkpad - internal and exteranl speakers

There are two ways to set the sound on an IBM thinkpad, hardware and software.
Hardware sound can be set via the speaker buttons below the screen. There should be three buttons: Mute, Volume Down, and Volume Up.
Software sound can be set in windows through the speaker icon on the bottom right of the screen. Click on the icon, and drag the slider up or down to change the volume.
If you don't have the correct drivers installed, these two settings are separate (e.g. It is possible to have the hardware volume down low, and the software volume set really high, and still have music playing relatively quietly). I would suggest turning both of them up and see if the sound gets louder.

I plugged in my speakers to Compaq Presiaro computer, and get no sound. New batteries are in, what should I look for? Do I need to download something for these to work?

Hello Debkopper, Hi!, No sound output can be several things. so lets do this one at a time. No sound means: 1. mute or low volume setting. check your volume controls. If you can find the volume controls, 2. look at the lower right side of your monitor, (if you are using Windows7 or xp) you should see a speaker ICON. click it and set the volume. If you have no speaker ICON, then 3. you need the driver software to activate the sound section of your PC. if you have the CD of the PC motherboard, use the CD to install the driver. IF you have a SOUND CARD, locate the CD that comes with it when you purchase it. If the sound card comes with your PC. locate its CD driver. 4. NO CD, then browse the internet to download the driver software. Here are info of what you need jot this down..... the motherboard make and model. (If sound card then the make and model) 5. After download install the driver.
IF you cannot find the driver or simply tired to find what it is, BUY a USB type SOUND CARD. plug it on a spare USB port, then your done, instant sound!!!

hi,, ok this can be a major problem or a very simple one.. you might just have the volume down or muted.. two the buttom right of the screen there should be a speaker icon ,, if not move on to solution 2 ..

1.) double click the icon,, remove the mute and turn the volume lever way up..

solution 2..
click start, right click computer ,, then click properties,, click HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER

look for something highlighted in yellow ,, if so you have a driver crash,, if not go to solution 3 and try that and if it fails then continue from here..

go to toshiba's web site,, support / downloads ,, download and install your audio drivers..

solution 3
click start ,, all programs ,, accessories,, system tools system restore.. restore your pc to a time when it was working..

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.

Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

The mute wont turn on,on the dell inspiron

Have you tried going into the speaker settings? We'll assume with a new PC you have Vista installed, click the speaker icon on the right side of the tray, and selecting "Mixer" will enable access to volume control for the output devices and for applications.

If no speaker icon is visible To check the volume controls in Windows Vista, click Start and then click Control Panel. Choose Hardware And Sound and then click Adjust System Volume under the Sound section. The Volume Mixer window will open, and you should see volume sliders for Device and Applications. Click and drag the sliders to view the volume level percentages. If the speaker icons show a circle with a red slash, click the icon so the speakers are no longer muted.

Furthermore, you’ll want to double-check all of your master volume and mute settings.
