Green light on speakers and sub. No sound - only hissing noise

\015 Green light on speakers and sub. No sound only slight hissing noise. Computer says all working ok. Checked volume levels. All ok. Please help\015

Answers :

It may appear that the output from the computer is not connected to the input to the Altec Lansings. The correct color is Green for output to speakers line level. Blue is input from mixer or other possibilities Line level. Pink is Microphone (Mono). If this doesn't assist sometimes the front panel will override the rear panel outputs. Good luck.
Bad Connection? Wrong output?Green light just means power on,hissing power reaching speakers but no audio.Try make sure your pluged into your sound card speaker jack.Try pluging into another source to eliminate speakers (headphone jack on another player,radio).Good Luck.
