Having problems with your Bose Companion 2 Computer Speakers ?

Speakers only play cd's

\015 I have a new XPS 630 and bose companion II speakers. Speakers play fine with cd's but no other sounds are working. Trying to play music from internet or radio I get no sound. Everything is plugged in right and I can find no mute checks on anything. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Bonnie\015

Answers :

Please look in your Start Menu, go to Control Panel, then into Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices. See near the left, and select Advanced Volume Control. Turn up the inputs for the other sounds that you want delivered out to those speakers. Later adjust the levels a little higher if at first the mix of the sounds is not quite loud enough from one or several of the sound sources. Also in Control Panel, Sounds, you can mute out or eliminate annoying unwanted system sounds such as sounds for minimize and maximize a computer window, and the click that occurs when the computer does Complete Navigation -which it does a lot. Go into Sounds and Audio Devices, and into the Sounds tab. Select the Windows Program event such as default beep and click pick NONE from the sound chooser scroll bar that is just below. Scroll up to NONE to eliminate that sound. Now your overall sound experience will be more pleasant, without unneeded sounds playing loudly, unexpectedly.

Pc audio My 2 yr old Dell pc now plays ALL audio as chopped up, skipping playback. This happens with the speakers, with the front headphone jack, or the rear sound card jack on headphones. The speakers work fine on another pc. ALL audio is affected, CDs, mp3s, wav files, even startup sound files. If I display the Task Manager window and the Performance Tab, the chopped up sound is directly related to the spikes in CPU usage. Any ideas for additional troubleshooting? Thanks
