if the sound is very faint. you can check the volume properties if it is set to maximize and also check the physical volume control on the actual speaker - also Disconnect Any Headphones That May Be Connected
to the Computer - Check for and remove any headphones connected to the computer or speakers to
prevent them from muting the external speakers.Click Start, and then click Control
Panel.Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. Click the Sounds tab. You can also try head phone if it is Crystal Clear on headphone then the problem is with the Speaker as Dell might need to replace it. :)
Basically, these speakers come with universal PL plugs, which means, you can connect them to any music source that has a headphones jack (just like an iPod, iPhone, walkman, discern etc...) you should have same phone jack in your DELL - use the green plug to the OUT jack (should have a little marking of an arrow out or little icon of headphones) the pink plug is for microphone.
if you are good at wiring you could take old headphones and use it and plug it into the headphones jack and have it work without frying it but if you arent good at wiring dont atempt to because it could hurt the powered speakers or the computer
First thing I would try is hooking up a set of headphones. If you can hear sounds thru the headphones then there could be an issue with the headphone jack. (the jack acts like a switch, switching OFF the speakers when you have a plug inside, and switching them back ON when you remove the plug).
If you dont hear sounds thru the headset or speakers, check your device manager, and remove/reinstall your audio driver. You can download the driver at the dell website Support.Dell.com.
You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.
It should be having onboard sound card, check from Bio's setup whether the Audio is ON. also check in control panel sound and media devices and check the volume maybe it's very very low or on mute. Also try with other speakers
