The speakers I have are brand new and work properly. Can it be the PC itslef, like theres something wrong with the motherboard? I have onboard sound AC97 and have not had any sound on since day1.

Your Speakers are:

The kind designed to be used with a PC?

Plugged into the Mains and connected to the PC (Green to Green).

Turned "On" at their Switch and their Volume Control connected and turned up a little.

Have you tried both the Front and Rear connections of the PC.

  TeamChris1981 15:35 06 Aug 2007

Yep its definatley green to green,
they are also switched on and the volume control is conneced and turned up.
Ive tried the rear connection and the only front connection I have is on the right hand side at the front which Ive tried,
There is 1 thing though the speakers are connected into a 4 socket adapter, and every single socket is used, and these are 240V speakers could that be the problem?

Are they designed to be used with a PC or a HiFI?

Does the "Tell Tale" light on the Speakers come on. Maybe try them from a different socket. Who wired the plug?

Is the sound enabled in Bios?

  TeamChris1981 17:55 06 Aug 2007

yeah the sound is enabled in Bios, and the speakers are for use with computers, portable cd players, cassette players and wakmans. The power light comes on the speakers when turned on as well.

Manufacturer and Model Name or Number, maybe that knowledge would give us a clue

  TeamChris1981 18:53 06 Aug 2007

The Manufacturer is : Genius
an I Ive got the model number as: SP-Q06S

Do you have a mp3 player ?

If so plug the speakers in and the mains and try the player.

If you receive sound it must be the pc.

A setting or driver issue.
