Having problems with your Polk Audio Computer Speakers ?

My monitor quit working. I plugged up my old one but it has no on board speakers. I plugged in my old speakers (Polk Audio) but I can't make them work. Does anyone have a fix? Thank you.


Answers :

Yes, just download or update your audio drivers from windows. You can probably just update your windows and it will do it for you. Just go to programs > windows update.

Next thing you can check is that all the cords are plugged up right.

Then right click on your speaker icon on the task bar (its usually by your clock on the computer) and click on Properties or Playback Devices (whichever you see on pop up menu. You can also get to the same place by opening Control Panel and clicking on the Sound icon).

So now you just click on the tab called Playback and make sure you pick the speakers that you want. Choose the plug, or place where the speakers are plugged in (front headphone jack, rear audio jack, or where ever you plugged them) and set them as the Default playing device by right clicking on it and choosing that option from the pop up menu.

You can explore around these tabs and can test your speakers out and what not. Just look under all these tabs and explore. Hopefully this will help you get them working.
