I have a very irritating problem with my computer speakers.
I will explain what happens;
I come home from work, and they will not be working! I switch the dial on, the light glows green and I can hear the speakers are all connected and working fine if i turn the volume up high (can hear slight static).
Then all of a sudden, when using my headphones instead (speakers still powered on) they pop around 5-6 times (probably the number of speakers there are) then they work again.
They do this randomly as I haven't been doing anything significant over the times it has happened.
I have checked all connections, on the sub box, and in the back of my pc. All is well there.
My setup is;
Creative 5.1 surround sound system
chaslocke1994 - sounds like it's either a faulty connection (to mobo), faulty soundcard or faulty mobo (if it's onboard sound).
Have you tried re-seating the soundcard? You'll have to remove the back of the PC and the screw holding it in - remove card then just pop it back in again as it might have loosened itself due to thermal creep.
Maybe try connecting each individual speaker, one at a time, to an external music output, and have a good listen to each one. This will tell you if the speakers ar ok.If you hear any distortion or no sound at all, then, that speaker must be faulty.That's what I would do for starters.
