Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Computer Doesn't Recognize Wired Speakers

\015 Recently, I got a new Asus desktop and installed the Windows 7 Beta on it. However, it somehow does not play sound through both wired speakers that I have tried. - the first ones are from Ozaki (no idea what that brand is), from way back in 2003. They work on my other desktop.- I thought that maybe they were too old, so I tried another pair from Sanyo. However, they don't work either.- Somehow, the computer can play sound via a USB sound transmitter that is connected (wireless) to a JVC CD/DVD player (has speakers). Possible Problems that I've Thought of..-the sound card needs an updated driver-the sound card or its driver is not compatible with Windows 7-something to do with Digital-to-analog stuff only being on the USB speakers.I've also tried plugging the speakers into different ports, but none of them work.\015

Answers :

The problem from your description would probably be that your USB audio devices has taken over as primary sound device
\015\012
\015\012This a regular thing with USB audio equipment
\015\012
\015\012Call up the volume control properties and under properties for playback make sure the USB device is NOT at the top of the list.
\015\012
\015\012If it is you need to relegate it to second place.
\015\012
\015\012Do that from the "adjust audio properties" then select the Audio tab and work from there to change the DEFAULT device.
\015\012
\015\012Your description of the problem was great and gave me the info to work out what I think you need.
