No sound via speakers

  Yimbo 18:49 14 Feb 2009

I'm getting no sound through my speaker system. I've tried all the connectios - all plugged in securely into the correct sockets. The volume control on the task bar is not muted. The light on the control speaker is lit, so power is getting through. I can use my headphones plugged into computer, though not into speaker sysytem. I use 5:1 speakers with Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreeme Audio, and XP (Home). I really don't know what to try next - and any help would be much appreciated.

if you go into device manager are there any yellow exclamation marks?

Try wiggling the jack while playing a CD, I had one that was faulty just moving it in or out a bit also worked

Yep - sure enough - wiggling the plugs during playback did the trick. Thanks for your help!
