Is this a 2.1 speaker system?

Have you had base with this speaker system on this computer before?

Speaker system for computers come in a couple different configurations. There is the 2.0 stereo with two speakers, right and left channels. There is the 2.1 which is stereo with right and left channel speakers and a sub-woofer, the 1 denotes the sub-woofer. Then the is the 5.1 surround sound speaker system, this has to rear channels, right rear and left rear channels, right and left front channel speakers, the center speaker, and a sub-woofer. Most all computer speaker systems have amplification built into the speakers since the output of the computer isn't enough to drive these speaker by itself, these speakers will plug into the wall outlet for power, usually a step-down transformer.

If you have a separate sub-woofer which is not working, check your connections at the computer and at the speaker itself.

Try reinstalling the audio/sound drivers for your sound card.

Thanks

Are you talking about when you use the wired, remote, volume and bass controller that plugs into the bass speaker unit?

dc3 what do you mean by amplification. Sorry i don't understand. Garmanma i don't undersand how to explain it mate. I think my speaker are 2.0 because i have got right and left speakers connected to the base or the soundstation that provides the sound which the cable is linked to the back of my PC. I really want to get my speakers fixed and working and i can't find my sound drivers. Thanks for all the help but i am really confused with some suggestions.

Does this look similar to what you have? 2 speakers, one bass unit and a wired control unit

Simply put...when you turn up the volume on your speakers, it is the amplifier which you are raising the volume on. In this case the amplifier is in the speaker/s. You have said that you have a left and right speaker, and you mention another box, is this a speaker as well. Does this box connect to the audio output of the computer, do the two speaker plug into that box? Does this box plug into the house plugs (receptacles)?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Omaroo could you be specific in what make and model your speakers are, e.g Logitech X-230 Multimedia Speaker System. The model type should be printed on the speakers some where if not on the box! If you can't find this info look on the net for a corresponding image or review.

Also a specification of you computer would help including what kind of sound card you have!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

on my big box the information says "Screenbeat Soundstation" and on the two speakers it says Logic 3. BTW i don't know what my soundcard is can you help. Also DC3 by speaker wires do connect to the main box. Also the the main wire is then inserted in the speaker hole in my base unit or system.

See if you can find your speakers at this link: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=L...amp;btnG=Search

In any case, it's always good to have a backup/alternate pair of speakers, soundcards, etc. for a system. These things may last a lifetime...then again, they may fade away next hour.

Ok, I made a blooper and posted here. Thought this was my thread.

Anyway, a driver reinstallation would help and try to reseat your sound card. But I think the problem lies in the software
