Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Speakrs don't work on new HP Pavilion desktop.

\015 Have purchased an HP Pavilion a6608f PC and thought I could just hook up my old Polk Audio speakers. However no matter where I plug them in, the speakers do not work. Is there special software I require to do this? The current system has Realtek HD Audio control panel. \015\012\015\012Thank you\015

Answers :

If you're using Windows XP, go to the Control Panel, then double-click on Sound, then go to the Audio tab and make sure the playback device is set to your Realtek output.

If you're using Windows Vista, go to Control Panel and click on Hardware and Sound, then click on Sound. Make sure your Realtek device is selected with a green check mark. If it isn't, just click on it and then click the Set as Default button down below. Vista sound configuration is kinda quirky, and it does do some kind of detection when you plug a cable into an audio jack, so you might leave this screen up while you plug your speakers into the green audio jack in the sound card and see if it pops anything weird up.
First, try your new speakers to see if they work. If so, plug the Polk speakers into the jack. Your pc should have come with documentation on this. Then make sure the speakers are plugged into an electrical outlet if required. If there is a volume/power button on the speakers, make sure they are turned on and the volume is up. Go into Control Panel/Sounds and Audio and make sure the Mute button isn't checked. Make sure the Device volume slide bar is moved to the right.
