hello,
Something very bizare just happend with my computer speakers. I just installed a Text to Speech software on my computer, and as I was using the software one of my two speakers completely cut out and the second speaker lost about 80% of its volume. I tried unplugging/power serging my speakers but when i plugged them back in they didn't work at all. I then tried to plug my speakers into a different speaker jack (i have two on my computer) and it still didn't work. I dont have a second set of speakers to try out, so instead i used my headphones to see if they'de work, and they dont work either. Every once in a while i'm able to get one speaker working at 20% but that happens randomly with use of different programs.
What's the problem here? Im worried that the issue isn't my speakers but internal. Did i blow my sound card or something? Any suggestions?

Re-install the soundcard software if you have it, usually on the motherboard CD for onboard sound

Check speaker type

I'm not too sure how to check my speaker type. As for reinsalling the Sound Card, i cant seem to find my computer cd so i'm downloading the Realtek AC97 Audio software right now, hopeing that will work.
Do you seem to think that this is a fixable problem, or is it more likely that something is broken? It seems odd that my sound cut out so suddenly.

On the first tab, at the bottom, click advanced to set the speaker type to what you have, click apply
