Generally speakers are plug-and-play. If you have tried that and it didn't work go to your control panel to 'Sounds and Audio Devices' to 'Speaker settings' then 'Advanced' and change the scroll bar to 'Headphones'
Answer . \nFor sound cards:\n. \nCheck the back of the computer. If you have some headphone-looking ports in a rectangular shaped metal cutout back there (and there are more than one) put the speakers in the green port.\n. \nFor Computers without sound cards:\n. \nIf you don't have one, look …for the mouse and keyboard ports. Close to those, there should be around 3 headphone-looking ports, put it in the green one.\n. \nAlso, it would greatly help if you included the computer model number. ( Full Answer )
How do you add a headphone socket to the speaker wires so that the speakers disconnect when the headphones are plugged in?
ANSWER . Each speaker is driven by a pair of wires coming from the amplifier. One wire is "live" and the other wire is "ground". There are two little contacts in the headphone socket which connect the amplifier's live outputs to the headphones when the headphone jack is inserted. When the headpho…ne jack is removed the contacts reconnect the outputs to the speakers.. So it's important to connect the "live" side of each of the speaker lines to these switches - not the "ground" wires which should stay connected to the speakers!. Because headphones usually have a much higher impedance than speakers the headphones will draw a lot less power from the amplifier but that won't do it any harm so there is no need to add any extra resistors in the leads.. ANSWER . Connect it to one side of the speaker line. You'd better have a resistor in the lead going to the earphone. ( Full Answer )
They were not designed to be used that way so don't do it! Speakers have a much lower impedance than headphones so your MP3 player, DVD player (or whatever device it is that just has headphone sockets) may be damaged if you plug speakers into it. That's because the speakers will try to take much mor…e power from the headphone socket than it may be capable of giving.. The correct way to drive a pair of speakers is to use a booster amplifier which has been designed to plug into the headphone sockets and has its own separate source of power from batteries or a mains adaptor.. Or just use one of the many "booster boxes" which come complete with an amplifier, neat mini-speakers and sometimes a mains power supply too. ( Full Answer )
Some speaker systems come with a power supply unit that plugs into a normal outlet. With those, there is a switch on one of the speakers along with a volume control. Also, check your "volume control" settings under "accessories" to make sure the speakers aren't "muted" in that control panel. Chec…k both speakers to be sure that there are batteries where there need to be. Then, unplug the speakers, checking to be sure that you are plugging them into the right spots. Finally, see if the on switch is on. ( Full Answer )
It sends out sound from the computer. A sound that you choose, whether its a voice, music, etc..
How can you make your headphone and speaker jacks in your Dell inspiron computer play two different audio sources?
To your computer these jacks are both the same pair of channels. The only way you could accomplish this is to put one audio source on the left channel only & the other on right channel only, then adjust the balance on those jacks accordingly on windows volume control. A better way to accomplish t…his may be to use an external USB sound card such as the creative extigy, note that your OS may or may not have the capability to utilize dual soundcards in this manner.

Can you use your computer as a loud speaker you have a microphone and speakers with the computer can speaking into the microphone and instantly transmit the voice to make it loud at the speakers?
If the motherboard has a mic jack,if not you need a sound card with one. It will only be as loud as the software allows, it is not an amplifier. But you can run it to an amp or your stereo and then to speakers.
Find out the model name and number, then try googling the information. Just because they are plugged in, doesnt mean they should work.. You need to get either the sound drivers or audio bus drivers for it. Just google it.
There is often a green speaker port. It may also be listed as 'audio out'.
My computer is always making staticy noises and I mean with sound. Even with headphones in the speaker jack. It changes according to what the computer is doing like erasing text. Any solutions?
Sounds like perhaps the speakers are not plugged in securely. If you check this and it is plugged in all the way, move the cord around near each end and if it makes noises in sync with your movement with the cord, it's a bad cord. If that doesn't do anything, move the cord around in different spots …from one end of the cord to the other, if it makes noise as you do it, it's the cord. If that doesn't do anything, hold the end of the plug, the end that plugs into your computer and try moving it around. When you do this, you will not be able to move anything physically but all you are trying to do is move the port that the plug is plugged into just enough to cause it to make the noise. If it doesn't make any noise. . .I don't know what the problem is! It sounds like the cord though. Whatever the problem is. . .it is'NT the computer! It's the speakers! Maybe even the speakers themselves! I wish you the best! ( Full Answer )
you can tell its a speaker if its a box or shell, and one end has a grate or mesh covering, there will be a wire coming out of the side opposite to the grill. this wire needs to be plugged into your amp, computer, or sub woofer, depending on your PC audio setup, for more information, contact your PC… manufacturer, or try www.fixya.com. Now onto headphones. you can recognize headphones by their distictive "U" shape. there will be bulbus ends on this "U" shape and on the inner part will be soft cusions. you want to invert this "u" so it looks like "n", then place the cusions over your ears so as to sit comfortably and completely cover them. plug the wire into a hole of the smae size with a picture of the headphones themselves near it, or the word "headphones". In all cases, a plugged in speaker or headphone will sound out if you play a song, etc. while plugged in. ( Full Answer )
To understand how a computer speaker works, you must first learn how sound works. It is a vibration that can travel through air, liquid or a gas. Contrary to science fiction, sound can not be heard in space because it is a vacuum, where there is no air. The sound vibrates through the air and hits …your eardrum, which your brain turns into noise. Parts of a Computer Speaker . Most speakers contain the same components. A computer speaker is not much different. A detached speaker contains a diaphragm, dust cap, voice coil, magnet, spider, basket, connecting wires and suspension (surround). Attached speakers have less components. . ( Full Answer )
Depending on the speakers, either a USB port or the audio-out jack, which I believe is usually green.
Technically, yes. However, a headphone jack does not provide a great deal of power, so you would probably need an amplifier for the sound output to actually be audible.
Is there a device which you plug in the headphone microphone jack which can block sound from the speakers?
NOT AN ANSWER:. i mean like when you plug earphones in like a computer that has speakers, the sound only works in the earphones. but i want a device that plugs in and has no wires just a stick sort of thing?. PLEASE CLICK IMPROVE ANSWER AS THIS IS A QUESTION DESCRIPTION!
The left-ear speaker's made for your left ear(and vice-versa) so you can hear better. Stereo music is mixed with the intention that certain instruments will appear in different locations in the the stereo spread (somewhere between left and right). To accurately recreate the intentions of the music… producer, you must put the headphones on for the intended ears. Orchestral music is recorded in stereo with a specific arrangement of instruments on the stage (violins on the left, for example). To recreate the sound as you would hear it from the audience, you must put the earphones on the correct ears. ( Full Answer )
How about getting a suitable adapter cable and plugging the other end into a hi fi system and then use headphones and speakers. Alternatively you can try plugging in the headphones halfway. It works apparently.
look at the back of the tower and plug the lead into the port with the picture of headphones next to/on it
Basically, the difference between stereo speakers and mono speakers are that different sounds can come out of different speakers. For instance, if in a movie a gunshot was made to the right of the viewer, the sound would be made to come out of the right speaker as to give more of a feeling of being …there. ( Full Answer )
Speakers use pulses of electricity to activate a small electromagnet that surrounds another magnet. it has a plastic covering, so as to mimic the vibration of our vocal chords and make noise.
Computer speakers make a repetitive tapping sound even when they are unplugged from computer and only plugged into the sub woofer?
That sounds like it has to do with the electrical current running through it. You might have a problem with the internal wiring of the speakers.
what do the plugs look like that would normally plug into your TV? (I am assuming there are just two cords, one red, one white)
Usually stereo. Contacts inside the jack are two positive leads for Left and Right, and a negative lead. Fairly low voltage, but enough for you to feel on your tongue.
Splicing Different Wires . Yes, IF the rules of proper splicing are followed, dissimilar metals can be successfully spliced. . Some of those rules that I can recall at the moment include : . The part of the wires to be connected by splicing MUST be clean and free of any grease, dirt, corros…ion, or deleterious material. . A "sound" mechanical connection MUST be made. That means either the wires properly twisted together, OR a mechanical device [connector, wire nut, or some type of terminal used]. . If a twisted mechanical splice is used, then the splice joint should be soldered to both "lock" the twisted splice, and to prevent the atmosphere from getting into the wire interface, causing corrosion which will degrade the current carrying ability of the splice joint.

Speakers and Headphones are output devices . A microphone, sometimes integrated with speakers, is an input device.
Your question is a little vague. Most speakers and headphones do not have a data connection to a computer, only electrical. Thus they will not show up in the Device Manager
with skullcandy earbuds i have found if you take the little mesh metal piece that you hear sound out of, out, they not only work again but play much louder. now this is only true with the in ear earbuds. not the over ear, or on ear.
sound travels from the computer to the speakers where sound waves pick up and the sound gets played
You just hit play and it plays. It doesn't require speakers or headphones to play. However, if you want to hear it you need to use speakers or headphones.
speakers make the musis louder while headphones make the music go directly to your ears, this makes you the only person able to hear it.
Your speakers worked with old computer but you got a new computer and there plugged in but wont work?
There are a few possible causes for this, the two most likely being 1.) They're not plugged in to the correct jack (computer speakers go into the green 3.5mm circular jack), 2.) Improper sound drivers on the new computer or some other form of software deficiency. Assuming that it is in fact someth…ing wrong in the software, check that your volume is first not muted - both on the speakers and in your control panel. Should those both be turned on, up, and not muted, check to make sure that the sound card is actually enabled and that its drivers are correctly installed and up-to-date - sometimes they aren't. If this new computer came from a manufacturer such as Dell, you probably got a disc labeled Sound Drivers (SoundBlaster Audigy cards are relatively common sound cards these days). If not, then on a Windows computer, you can open the device manager (Start>Run>devmgmt.msc). Check under sound devices, see if the sound card is recognized (name would be along the lines of SoundBlaster, RealTek, or something like it), there are no warnings on it, and, when you double-click it or right click and click properties, it says "This device is working properly" - if it is not, then start researching how to get updated drivers for that particular sound card. Usually a quick search for the model's name and the word "Drivers" will give you the manufacturer's page and instructions for this. ( Full Answer )
no its better to listen with the speaker because it will start to make scratches in your ears
Many televisions do not have headphone jacks anymore. Almost every TV that has a headphone jack will shut off its internal speakers when the headphones are connected. You should look at wireless headphones that will connect to the audio output of the television instead of the headphone jack if you n…eed to use both at the same time. ( Full Answer )
When i plug my headphones into my TV no sound comes out of my headphones but they still come out of my tv speakers. I want to use my headphones to listen to sound from my Ps3.?
a mess up in the headphone? you may need a new tv or new headphones The headphone jack in the TV are switched so that the TV's speakers are turned off when you plug in the phones. This jack has been broken on your TV, so you need to get that part fixed (if it is a more recent TV) or replace the T…V (if it is older). Note that the part itself is cheap, but getting at the jack can take several hours, which may make the repair more expensive than purchasing a new set. You can plug the audio output of the PS3 into a stereo system that has a headphone jack if you wish to listen to it. ( Full Answer )
There isn't any output of the sound to go anywhere, which is totally useless and wastes energy, so the iPod goes into a save-power mode or a pause. Side Note: That is almost like asking: "How come I can't play my XBOX if there is no TV?"
Where can you get good quality speakers that will fit inside headphones I need them as I am making my own wooden headphone?
The highest quality headphones you can buy have the finest sound you will ever get from any headphones. Hence the best good quality speakers that you can get into headphones have already been invented - if you've got the money.
Where can you get good quality speakers that will fit inside headphones I need for headphones I am making?
I don't know what to tell you. Excellent speakers designed for conventional speaker cabinets are widely available, but high quality headphone sized speakers I know of no source for.
How do i connect my tv which is a Digital Audio Out connection to my computer speakers which have a 3.5mm Headphone Jack connection so that my TVs sound will play out of the speakers?
Unless your computer speakers have a digital audio input, you won't be able to just use a cable. If your TV has two RCA line outputs (audio outputs), you can get an adapter cable to run to your computer speakers. You could upgrade your speakers to models that have a digital input, but most of those… are higher-end surround-type systems. ( Full Answer )
If you plug in headphones with a microphone built in into a computer how can you make it work as both a microphone and a headphone?
The combined headphone/boom mic, usually have two 3.5mm plugs, color coded green and pink. Plug the green one into the headphone or speaker output and the pink one into the mic socket. If the headset has a single 3 ring,(stereo) 3.5mm plug, then it is generally not compatible with computer use. You …may be able to find an adapter, that converts a stereo plug to two separate plugs. ( Full Answer )
When you plug your headphones into your computer it reads it as a speaker and nothing plays out of them?
It likely that you plugged your headphones into the wrong jack. There should be a jack for your headphones on your computer that has the head-phones label on it, not the one with speakers or for a microphone.
"Yes, you can do this. Home stereos always have one thing, and that is a head phone jack so if you don't want to disturb other people in your home you can still listen to music."
Maybe. If you need to drive passive speakers, you will need an amplifier. If you have powered speakers, you might not be able to control the volume of the signal.
Speakers are attached to computers for the output of sound. Sound cards are required in the computer for speakers to function. Speakers range from simple; two-speaker output devices to surround-sound and multichannel units.
I have a lime green, soft pillow, called the idream. I am not sure of it is still on the market, but try googling it. It plays the music at just the right volume to fall asleep to. My friend has a pink one.
Many amplifiers automatically disconnect the speakers when a headphone plug is inserted, unplug the headphones and the speakers should come back on.
Is there a way to manually mute certain speakers in a situation with a defective headphone plug in where sound comes out of both headphones and built in laptop speakers?
Nope - if your sound is coming from both the headphones and the built-in speakers, it's your headphone socket in the laptop - not the plug that's at fault ! Basically an audio socket is a switch. While no external speakers (ie headphones) are connected, its internal components direct the sound t…o the computer's built-in speakers. Inserting a plug into the socket breaks the connection to the internal speaker circuitry, and directs the sound to the headphones. ( Full Answer )
You plug in the red cord into the headphone speaker of yourcomputer. You charge it by turning it off and it should charge for1 hour. Once the light turns blue on your speaker that means itsfully charged and it should last for about 4 hours.
Altec Lansing makes reliable, high quality computer speakers at a reasonable price. Yamaha also produces a comparable computer speaker line. Bose is considered the top standard, though they are more expensive than most other similar speakers.
Usually, you just plug in the headphones, and that mutes thebuilt-in speakers. If the speakers don't mute, make sure the plugis the right size for the PC's jack (the plug should not have anywiggle when it is plugged in), and that it is plugged in all theway into the jack.
