If the head phone jack works its more likely to be the problem, if you use the headphone jack a lot the connections inside it can get worn or bent out of shape--engaging the headphone jack should shut the speakers in the unit off.
Other possible reason is a bad speaker or connections.
Yes you can do this if you source your sound from the headphone source. If you uise the headphone source you will lose the TV sound since the headphones mutes the speakers. But if you choose to use to use the AV jacks then you don't mute the sound and you can still control the speakers supposing that you have a brand of Television that has got all these facilities. Or otherwise if this is not what you are asking for please send the details of the TV you are using.
Those speakers are meant to just plug into a sound card or onboard sound device or any sound device that has headphone jacks e.g. iPod. They don't provide feedback to the PC, so there is absolutely no need for drivers, which is why you don't see them in device manager. Think of them as a glorified pair of headphones.
- Tested sound output from the speakers (connected to the speaker port)
- Tested sound output from the headphones (connected to the headphone port)
- Checked to make sure the system's sound isn't muted or turned down
If you've tried all three of those things and still can't get any sound, try reinstalling your sound driver (or updating it if there is a newer version available). It should be on the disc that came with your computer, but if not you can download it from the Intel website.
If the new sound driver doesn't fix the problem, your motherboard's sound capability or speaker may be bad. Rather than replace the motherboard, you can purchase a cheap sound card and just install it in an expansion slot, which will give you sound capability for a lot less money.
you think you have a sound card installed but you don’t see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed

card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then

On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer.
Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct
jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there
should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal
serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your
Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out
(headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening
with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most
computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, check the information that
came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.
Check your system if you are able to hear sound using any headphone..if you are able to hear sound from headphone then the problem is with your dell speakers,else you need to update sound drivers for your system...Thanks..
ur system might have no sound driver,or maybe there is a dust inside the port in which u connect speaker to,if there is then clean it.if that does not help then u have to buy sound card and fix it.after that then u have to upgrade ur software with the higher version of that particular windows software cos maybe your os as been curupt then if upgrading does not help then u need to format the system to erase the corupted version of windows.
