    my speakers have power(on),but I have no sound,at all.The speakers in question are Altek twin speakers,with one single connection to pc The original cost of these speakers were only about £50, inside is a circuit board attached to wires.I would like to know if they are worth repairing(,to find the fault,or discarded.) A new pair of HP twin speakers is about the same price(.from John lewis store.) if you can help ,that would be great.

    Have you confirmed that the problem is with the speakers and not that the computer's audio output may be turned down or muted? A quick check would be to test them with another known good source, like an MP3 player.

    Yup, good advice. Check whether you get sound out of any other speakers/headphones, then you'll know for sure if it's a computer problem or a speaker problem.

    Yes, it does sound like you my have some kind of electronics failure inside the speaker housings. As to what type of component failed, you would need some test equipment and hopefully some kind of schematic diagram and/or data sheets for the integrated circuits.

    looks like a expensive job to fix,as the speakers only cost me £50, thanks for the reply.I think the best thing is to cut my losses,and just buy another pair (under warranty)(y)
