Having problems with your Creative Labs GigaWorks T20 Computer Speakers ?

I have creative T20 speakers and cannot get the sound to work. When plugging the Creative Labs speakers into the port, I can hear the 'click' of the power through the speakers. I do not have drivers installed and i have been told that it is not necessary

If you have checked that everything else is properly connected, and the unit has failed after warranty has expired, try this:
Open up the powered unit (the Right speaker with the controls) to expose all of the circuitry and wiring. To open the unit, carefully pull \012off the fabric speaker cover straight off, remove the 4 rubber inserts \012in the top 4 holes, and remove thel 6 philips-head screws in all 6 of the deeply\012 recessed holes. Carefully pull the front section forward enough to access the wiring and circuit card inside. The wires are really crammed in there to the point where some are strained. With the unit open, turn it on and attempt to play audio through it. While doing so, carefully pat or wiggle individual wires in the bundle to see if any cause the sound to intermittently cut in or out. On mine, I found that the white ribbon wire on the bottom of the circuit board in there was strained to the point of \012where its connector was slightly cracked, apparently at construction. While playing audio through it, if I \012touched that wire ribbon, the sound would cut out. So I adjusted the \012wires slightly to relieve any tension force on that connector and it has\012 not had the problem since.
