You don't mention your set-up.

Have you checked all connections?

It could be that the speakers' jackplug connection is not properly connected, either at the sound card's socket or that of one or more of the speakers, or the wiring is damaged.

Check out Stuartli's suggestion, sound like loose or damaged connections.

Jiggle the cable(s) around, and see what happens!.

could be wire when move it get sound on other speaker but not all time. does that mean have to buy new speakers....

A fair test would be to try another set of speakers,
no point in buying new ones just to find out it's the socket not the plug...

Try swapping the speakers around to see if it's the speaker or the plug/socket.

You don't actually mention what the speakers are, whether that a basic computer speakers or something else, like on an hifi unit.

If they are the basic type, as used on computers, then these can be obtained from about £3.99 upwards for a pair. Might be worth considering this alternative, instead of trying to remedy a intermittent fault.

thanks bought some new speakers problem solved than you for ideas...x
