About 3 days ago my speakers quit working. I have connections for headphones on the front of my computer (XPS-600, Windows XP, SP2) and sound card connections on the back. When I connect headphones to the jacks in the front of the computer I can hear sound, but I can't get anything to come out of the spekers, which are connected to the sound card jacks on the back of the computer. Any ideas on how I can get sound back from my speakers?

Have you tried the speakers on another system? It sounds like the speakers are damaged.

Adding to Alan's post, it might be the power adapter for the speakers

@phoenix01: You can only set either use the front or the back jacks. You can not use two of them at the same time. Set your audio out to the back jacks again. And your speaker works again.
