Can some one tell me why I can't get sound out of my speckers of my Dell desk top. I can connect a headphone into the computer and get sound.

OK so you are connecting the headphone connector on the front of the computer correct?


Check speaker connection to back of system
Check volume control in windows by doing the following:
Go to Start and The Run
Type in sndvol32.exe and press Enter
Make sure Master Volume is not muted and turned up
Check Cd Player volume is not muted and turned up

Speakers do work and you have tested them on another system to be sure?
Have you tried a different set of speakers?
Are the speakers powered or not?
Has the speakers ever worked on the system?
Are you plugging into the correct spot on the back of the system?

No I didn't, I don't have another system to try them out on. Is there any other way to test if they are ok.

You need to try a different system that there is no problem with speakers.
that will tell us if the speakers are working or not.
The other option is to plug the headphones into the speaker connection on the back of the system and see if you get sound. If oyu do then the headphones are probably bad.
