Re: bonsto speakers and compaq
Have you tried a pair of known working headphones? Does the motherboard have built in audio? Make sure nothing is muted in the advanced audio menu. Make sure you're connected to the right connector. (usually green) And most audio cards will come with drivers if they need them, but you can try these downloads from the realtek website.

Well we have eliminated the laptop as a problem,.. that is very good. As far as what the problem with your BA unit is,.. we only know that it does not function with an external device (laptop and mp3 player). you already mentioned that a sound test from the unit plays through all the speakers,. right? With that lets start with the most basic item that will cause this problem,.. the cable that comes from the BA unit and plugs into the laptop or mp3 player. Is the cable plugged into the right place on the BA unit? Does the cable disconnect from the the BA unit? if so, do both ends of the cable look the same or is there 2 ends (maybe red and white) that plug into the BA unit? Please let me know when you can and we can continue troubleshooting this.
The Guys at Boston Acoustics helped me get my speakers to work. The Boston BA7500 speakers are coaxial digital speakers so you need a digital output on your sound card. Analog will NOT work. My new HP Pavilion has a Realtek sound card with a digitial RCA plug output. I had to go to Amazon and get a male RCA to 1/8" Stereo Mini Female adapter plug. I just pluged it in and configured my sound card to 16 bit 48 khz output to the RCA output and everything works great. The speakers sound better then ever, great for 10 year old speakers! They sound better then anything I have seen avalable today. The guys at Boston were the only guys that helped with getting this to work! Thanks again to them and Amazon has every type of adapter plug you may need. Good luck.
I had this problem with realtek drivers. You can try updating to the latest driver but for me the only solution that truly worked was investing about $100 in a good creative x-fi soundcard and disabling the onboard. I haven't had another sound problem since adding the soundblaster x-fi. Hope this helps.
Do not worry about the milliamp. As long as you use an adapter thats the correct voltage (you stated 12 volts), the end connector fits into the speakers and the polarity is the same, then you wont have any trouble.
so what you want to do is have both the parts play on both the speakers on the same time, am i correct?? was there a utility or program that came with your speakers that may have proporties to change this setting??
