    Computer speaker question

    The speakers on my computer are beginning to buzz and crack. First question would be is there a way to fix the speakers? I have moved the speakers around and shook the wires, but neither has worked. If there is no way to fix a speaker once it begins to buzz and crack, I was going to go buy a couple of new speakers. 2nd question would be then, if I was to buy a new set of speakers would I need a new sound card?

    Thanks Josdin

    Re: Computer speaker question

    generally it sounds like something has gone bad in the speaker itself, or potentially within the wires.
    Can you plug other speakers in to make sure your sound card is still outputting clear audio??

    New speakers doesn't usually mean a new sound card in most cases.

    I have another pair of speaker laying around the house somewhere. I will have to try and dig them up. For the time being, I adjusted the balance all the way to the right side and that seems to be working fine, except that's in mono now. Is this a good sign that my sound card is still working properly?

    Thanks Josdin

    You need another set of speakers to be sure the sound card is working, but yeah, chances are you just blew one speaker and a new set will have you back up and running...

    If you use other speakers and you have the same problem, it points to the sound card being the issue.

    Take your speakers and run over them with your car.

    I think it'd be more interesting to light them on fire once I have a new set of speakers, and a sound card if that is also needed.
    ;D

    Re: Computer speaker question

    Alright, I plugged in the other speakers into my computer. These speakers are really lousy and barely pumped out any sound, but neither side cracked or buzzed. So this means I can get another set of speakers, plug them in, and they should work fine, right?

    Thanks Josdin

    sounds like yer sound card is ok.

    there are a few advanced features in the sound mixer from windows.. or if you have installed a sound manager from your sound card vender/mboard vender u might wanna play with those to see if yer not pumpin out correct volume.

    i'd say check out a cheap electronics store and see if you can find a decent pair of powered speakers. This might help the volume.. and give u a better sound.
