Having problems with your Altec Lansing ADA 885 Computer Speakers ?

All of a sudden I have no sound. Had it a few days ago when using computer. Have A.L. ADA885. Speaker with mode settings etc. no longer lit up. Was lit with kind of blinky words on it saying Prologic, but now nothing is lit. Checked all wires to be sure they are tight.

Answers :


(If the speaker itself is the problem)
- If you mean that there is no light anymore when you plug the speaker to the power source, checking the cables is correct but if you already checked it and nothing's happening, if it has a power supply at the back remove it and power cycle the speaker then plug it back in properly.

- Test the sound card if it's properly working by using a different speaker

(If the speaker is working)
- Check the drivers of your sound card if it's not corrupted or not disabled by checking on the device manager
- Click Start
- Click run
- Type devmgmt.msc
- Check if there is an audio controller that is in question mark or exclamation point, that means that the driver is corrupted or not installed. If it's red then it's disabled, so all you have to do is to enable it by right clicking it and click on enable. Reinstall the driver if it's corrupted or not installed

- You may also check if the default driver is set to your proper sound card not on the motherboard's build-in sound card.
- Click Start
- Click Control Panel
- Click Sound and Audio Devices
- Click on Audio Tab and check if the audio device is the one's your using

- Check if it's not muted

Your best fix here is to go to your "System Restore" and go back to when you remember your speakers working correctly. This should solve your dillemma. Thanks, Dana

First of all let me preface this by saying that I don't chat a lot and I don't use abbreviated words so I might wear your patience thin because I type kinda slow. Nonetheless, I have a dell E773c monitor and that auto menu or the menu you use the buttons on the monitor to adjust contrast and the like keeps flashing on and off. It's annoying to say the least. I tried to uninstall the drivers. Didn't work. Do you have to say about this?

Hi, I would say its nothing to do with your drivers as these basically tell the pc what monitor you have and how to interact with it. It sounds like the buttons and/or associated circuits on the monitor relating to the monitor menus are on the way ou ... Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
