First the easy things. Are you sure you plugged the speakers in the correct socket.
Are you sure the speakers are plugged in and the power switch on.
Is the volume turned up on the speakers.
Is the volume turned up on the computer, Not just the program you're running but also from the tiny speaker icon at the bottom right of your screen.
Have you checked the sound card (if it's not a built in system) is correctly inserted.
It sometimes helps, if it's a plug in card to remove the card, clean the card's contacts with clean white paper and then plug the card back in.
Check the card is actually working by plugging in another set of borrowed speakers.
Ensure you have drivers loaded for the sound card.
Check the system manager in your control panel and make sure there's no conflicts.

BE CAREFUL WITH THIS ONE......

Grab an almost flat AA or AAA battery and connect intemittedly one lead of the speaker to one end and the other wire to the opposite end of the battery. If you hear a clear crackle in time with the touching of the wires then the speaker should be OK. If you have a multimeter, switch it to OHMS and check the speakers on it's low setting. It should register around 4 Ohms. Even on high settings the meter will show a bunch of zeros or if it's a meter the needle will swing right across the dial.

If all these pass then I would be checking with a substitute sound card. But this would involve loading the appropriate drivers too.

Good luck.

Sub Speaker giving intermittent loud crackling and sharp loud popping sounds even with main volume control turned off. Crackling sound can be reduced by turning sub volume control off.


It may be the control itself too. In time, these controls can get dust build up inside it. There are volume control spray cleaners available from Radio Shack or other electronic parts stores. The cheat on cleaning the control is to just rotate it from stop to stop as many times as it takes to clear the noise.
