If you are running Windows XP or Vista, first check the volume properties and next the sound properties.

1. Locate the speaker icon on your Tool bar and click it. Make sure that the volume is set to mid-range or maximum. Be sure that the mute box is not checked.

2. Go to the Control Panel and click on "Sounds" (for Vista) or "Sounds and Audio Devices" (in XP).
3. Go to the "Audio" tab and make sure that the brand of your sound card is selected under the Sound playback and recording.

If same problem occurs, try connecting your speaker into another computer to see if the problem is the speaker.

Thank you!

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.

I dont have any sound, I got a message bottom right corner when I click on speaker icon "No Audio Output Device is installed" I think I need drivers for X-220 speakers, I can't find them...

You don't need a driver for the speakers, but a driver for the sound card installed inside your computer. If the computer came with that sound card then you can find the proper driver from the manyfacturer website -> Support section.

Sound drivers need to be reinstalled sometimes after iTunes updates or video game installs.

No sound from speakers

I hope you have plugged the devices correctly. It might be a problem that you have not installed the sound drivers, install the sound drivers correctly and check. If after that you are not getting the sound check your speakers in another computer to verify that the speakers are working properly. It can also be a problem of your sound card, it might not be working properly.

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

You need to unplug speakers if plugged in. Install the software and drivers for your Speakers. Then plug them in and you should be able to use them. If this doesn't work, go to device manager remove all USB devices, and reboot, then re-install software & driver. Then plug in ya speakers. They should work.
