    Speakers Issue....

    Ok, I need help.
    Again.

    So, in my old computer, the sound stopped working. It wouldn't recognize the sound devices or the removable disk.
    Ok, I now have a new computer - same speakers.
    When I plug them into the correct plug, I hear no sound.
    So I plugged them into every lug, and in one, there's sound but it's very tinny, echoy... like it's far away through a tin can

    Any idea what the problem might be? PC.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Speakers Issue....

    The green jack should be your speaker jack

    Go into the Sound Control panel. Click advanced under speakers, and make sure it is set to the speaker arrangement you have. Then click advanced under device volume and in the mixer panel, make sure the volumes aren't turned down.

    You might have something like your jacks are setup for 5.1 output, rather then just stereo, which often changes the roles of the jacks. You may want to check out your manuals about 5.1 setup vs. stereo wiring.

    The green jack in the one that they are plugged into that's making them sound bad. (I forgot to mention the voume is turned all the way up too). They should be plugged into the orange - for my HP, it's orange/orange. That's where they were on the other, then they stopped working.

    They are not powered, if you mean they have their own on/off and volume. I just tried headphones - two kinds - and both have the tinny sound though the volume was working fine.

    Everything looks good in the control panel.

    Re: Speakers Issue....

    The jacks are color coded - to a standard color code (set by PC 99)

    Orange is the digital audio out. Green is line level.

    If your audio sounds weird plugged into green - I'm almost certain its because your computer is configured for not stereo out, but probably 5.1 output. Without knowing the specific model, I don't know how you toggle the mode on your computer.

    Re: Speakers Issue....

    Ok... I figured out the echoy thing.
    But the volume is still off...
    It's up as high as it can go, but it's still not very loud.

    I configured it to the best that I saw in the diagram. I'm not sure if it's in 5.1 or stereo though?

    Re: Speakers Issue....

    Ok, here's the online version of the manual
    http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00681227.pdf

    From page 20, which describes the different connection styles.. from what you've described, I'd suspect you have the PC Card style.

    You should follow the instructions on page 23 for 2.1 speaker setup. Then follow the instructions for the different software packages on Page 35

    Which speaker connection setup do you have, based on the diagrams on Page 20?

    Good luck. I have 2.1 speakers (really good ones), but my current PC's sound card doesn't support 2.1 speakers so I've been using the 5.1 setting and it works pretty well. Eventually I'll have to get some 5.1 speakers.

    I think I went pg 23 to 37 ... then it said to click on something w/i the control panel... but I didn't have that option!!!

    Aimster, maybe that is the problem? Even though it seems to support 2.1 (but I think it's 2.0 that I actually have) maybe it really doesn't!

    which connection setup do you have from the diagram on page 20?

    and which software package were you looking for?

    My sound card supports 2.0 but my speakers are 2.1 (cos I got a subwoofer). So I improvised and use the 5.1 setting and it gets me by.
