    I recently moved my computer. When I reconnected my speakers, the sound is very faint, even though the volume is turned all the way up. The speakers are connected properly. I have a sound card installed in the PCI slot. Is there some settings in the BIOs that I need to change? The faint sound is VERY frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :cool:

    H,mmm did you check the volume control on both the speakers and in the software? One or the other could be set to minimum. Cycle the volume control pot full down to full up on the speaker, maybe a dead spot in the pot. It can happen. Also you might have it full down and you think it is full up. Turn speakers On / Off. Remove and replug the speaker jack in the computer, making sure it is fully seated. Try a different software program to play via the speakers.

    If all else fails try a second pair of speakers. That will allow you to isolate the problem to the speakers or in the computer.

    Yes check that the speakers are plugged into the correct output of the computer. Also check that you have plugged the power supply into the speakers and that it is connected to the wall. Sometimes the power connection comes out when people move the speakers and they forget to connect it again.
