Diagnosing and repairing problems with computer speakers

If you are like me and constantly have issues with your speakers not working properly, then this article is for you. The reason is that there are several causes of this particular speaker problem. You may have a problem with your sound card, or maybe your speakers accidentally disconnected and you don’t know it. Maybe your speakers aren’t plugged in and aren’t getting power, or the volume is off.

Well, before you start fixing all those options, make sure your speaker settings are correct. There is a possibility that the speakers have gone bad somehow and that is what is causing all those problems with the sound. There’s even a chance it’s your sound settings. They might have been altered after installing another program. To help you further with this problem, here are five more steps to fix this speaker problem:

  • Before separating the cables and disassembling the speakers, take a look at your computer and see if there are any potential issues that could be causing your problems. Listen closely to the sound coming from your speakers and see if you can diagnose the problem from there. If the speakers get unusually hot, then the problem could be with the speaker itself.
  • If you don’t think there is a physical problem with the speakers, check the computer connection. Do this by turning on the speakers with the volume quite high. If there’s still no sound or even dead air from the speakers, your mute control might be on mute all sounds. Now you have fixed your mouse click problem.
  • Take a look at your computer speakers and note their make, model and serial number and go to the manufacturer’s website. Companies like Sony have detailed instruction manuals and self-help sections on their site for problems like yours. You can also find a tech support line on their site if needed.
  • Ask someone at a local electronics supplier what they think about your situation. Stores like Circuit City or Radio Shack can help you answer easy questions like this. Even representatives from companies like Dell can help you. The least they can help you is to point you in the right direction of the problem. Do you know someone who is really interested in electronics or sound systems? Someone who works in car audio can even help. If your electronics technician can’t fix it, chances are you know someone who can, even for a few bucks.
  • The person you ultimately choose to repair your speakers should do a good job, have a solid reputation, and be reasonably priced. The time it will take to do the job should also factor into her decision. Repairs shouldn’t take more than a couple of weeks.
