Having problems with your Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System (3-Piece) ?

Bose companion 5 show as installed on my inspitron e1705 with vista os but there is no sound


Answers :

Make sure the speaker next to your time in the bottom right hand corner is not muted. Also make sure the volume is turned up as well

After that if you still don't get sound then make sure you look at the manual for it which is located here:

http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/og_companion5.pdf

Go thru it and make sure the connections are correct. If they are and your still not getting sound then see if you get sound thru your internal speakers thru the laptop. This will verify whether the sound is working at all.

If not then your motherboard is bad but still try another set of normal speakers thru the ouput on your laptop. Its marked as a set of earphones, thats where you would plug in the speakers.

If you still don't get sound then you know definitely for sure the motherboard has to be bad.

Hopefully going thru these steps will get the sound to work but if not then you can feel comfortable knowing the real problem.
Hi

as this is a usb type of speaker set, your vista is still most likely set to use the internal sound card instead of the bose usb system.

press the start button on the lower left corner of your screen, open the control panel, click on Hardware and sound then click under sound - manage audio devices. (if you are in classic view then just open sound)

Now in the sound - playback, you need to set the usb - bose as default.

you will see something similar to this picture

select the device and then click on SET DEFAULT. now with the usb device as default click apply / ok to close the window.

restart the computer, play music or anything once the machine is restarted, it should come out from the bose.
