Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Speakers don't work. Used Dell Dimension 4550 with no setup guide. Don't know if speakers need power source or just plug into hard drive. Volume control is on. Louis


Answers :

Depending on the speakers--if battery powered or powerpack--they need a driver to work--
\015\012you can do a hardware check to see if the speakers are found.
\015\012The speakers are NOT plugged into the hard drive..the are plugged into a LPT port that is plugged into the motherboard. The hard drive is the main unit that stores all the windows operational system functions, and software you install on it. This can not happen IF there is no motherboard that has the critical information to tell the hard drive to accept the information and where to send that information through the CPU (central prosessing unit). The drivers are the programs that make your speakers, printers, and any other hardware you add work. Now before the speakers can work the motherboard need a sound card and the driver to make that operational. So the sound card needs to be checked too. go to the dell web site for the drivers for the sound card if needed. www.dell.com
