My speakers do not work

  • I have a Dimension 9100 I recently disconnected the computer to have a new carpet fitted when I reconnected it the speakers no longer worked.  I have done all the scans to check why they do not work and they all say they are working, but I have no sound not even the start up sound.  Any ideas how I can fix this

  • Checked & re-checked speaker leads and connections? Try the speakers on another system to make sure they definately work.

  • Also, do you have them reconnected to the AC power?

  • Sorry my computer knowledge is not very good what is the AC power and where do I find it?
  • PC Speakers must be "powered" (have their own built in power amplifier) and "powered" speakers must have an AC power source to power the speakers.  Many have a small transformer that plugs in to an AC power outlet (electrical outlet) and the other end with a connector that plugs into one of the speakers.
