My external speakers work with my ipod but not my computer

\015 My external speakers work with my ipod and my internal computer speakers work, but as soon as I plug in my external speakers I get no sound. I have checked all my sounds in my computer and it is telling me that everything is working right and nothing is muted. I am at a loss right now.\015

Answers :

Is the jack "on-board"? That is, on the motherboard? Or, do you have a separate sound card in your computer? On-board sound devices frequently fail . Either way, I would say you probably need a sound card. Make sure you have an open OCI slot in your computer and then go buy a PCI sound card. Oh yes, once installed, you may or may not need to disable the on-borad device in your BIOS to prevent conflicts.

I have a set of speakers: 2 speakers and one subwoofer. The problem I am encountering is when I plug in my ipod to the system, only the right one works. The left is completely silent. However, one time I was able to get both of them to work when I twisted the chord that is connected to the Ipod. But that only worked once. Now, only the sub and right speaker work. What is the problem and what do I need to do to fix it?

No sound is coming from my external computer speakers I have an Acer5100-U5300A computer. Whenever I try to connect external speakers to the computer, no sound is heard. I was trying to connect some Phillips PC speakers to my computer. I previously had some Acer speakers connected to the computer that came with the computer when we bought it a couple years ago.
