    Your speakers may be shot. Unplug the speaker/PC connection and try it in the ear plug socket of a radio/cassette. Remember the power needs to be plugged in too. If they work ok, check to see that the audio card is seated well (touch some metal to get rid of static before going in). Keep us posted.

    Does it have to be a device that requires and ear plug? I mean all my stuff use headphones.

    I am having speaker issues as well. The LED light doesn't come on.

    I can hear a CD via headphones.

    "The LED light doesn't come on. "

    Maybe a dumb question but I'll ask anyway :? Is the power adapter for the speakers plugged in?

    The following steps for checking sound.
    1. Checked that the speakers are plugged into the right socket. For amplified
    speakers use Line Out. For non amplified speakers use Speaker out.
    2. If amplified speakers (they have on/off switch) check that there power supply is plugged in.
    3. Use headphones to check if there is any sound at all. This will determine if the problem is the sound card or speakers.
    4. Go to www.maninoz.com and follow the sound tutorial for Windows.
    5. Clcik Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, device manager. If there are any yellow exclamation marks then that indicates a driver problem.
    5. Download and install the latest drivers for sound card or onboard sound. This is essential if you have applied any patches to Windows.
    6. If all fails then chances are the card needs replacing

    If you have onboard sound download drivers from the motherboard or computer manufacturer's site
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.

    Yes, the power supply is plugged in. But the light still doesn't come on. (on one of the speakers).

    No, headphone plug/earphone are one and the same.
