Hey! I had this problem when I first got my computer by I was so happy with it, I let it slide...

Here's the problem: I have two(left, right) speakers and a subwoofer. With ALL available options jacked up, I still get barely any sound from the speakers. Just barely.

Also, another problem the front panel audio ports (for my headset/mic) won't register my headset (which IS compatible) but the the 'Front' green port on the back panel registers my headphones, and so does the mic port in the back panel.

My dxdiag is as follows:

Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.080917-1612)

I hope the info provided helps in some way. The speaker box did say they were compatible with Vista, and the computer was purchased through ibuypower.com. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

Are the speakers powered? Are they plugged in? Which port in the back are you using?

Hm. Subwoofer is powered, the speakers, however - are not.

Back panel > green 'Front' port, matching the color upon the jack of the speakers. Oddly enough, the subwoofer has the same color, but I've tried the speakers by themselves with no luck.

Hmm the sub is powered and not the speakers. This is unusual. Are you sure the speakers aren't supposed to be plugged into the sub, then the sub plugged into the computer? This is how its usually setup. What is the make and model of the speaker system?

I got the speakers to work, but oddly enough - it'll work with WMP, but not with Youtube when I music from there.
