The USB speakers replace the Built-in sound and do not use it. They should be installed as USB sound devices or words to that effect.

 

Go to the sound section of the control panel and see what is set for sound playback device. Is this XP?

 

Good Luck

Yup rotor I'm using XP, and I went to the sound section and the sound playback device is realtek HD audio output as default & speaker settings are set to desktop stereo speakers.

If You want to use USB speakers, You should be able to select them once they are plugged in. They replace the sound card.

 

Good Luck

Thanks for your answer Sir, :) I have speakers somewhat like this - https://www.modmypi.com/image/cache/data/raspberry-pi-accessories/usb-speakers-800x800.jpg

They are USB alright but they come with a 3.5mm jack as well which gets connected to the sound card(green hole).I connected the usb to the computer and the jack to my mobile and played some stuff on my mobile and it played fine on the speakers,but when I connect the jack to the computer there is no sound, I guess Am I doing something wrong with the options of realtek or something else?? :scratchhead:

OK, I see what they are doing. Instead of supplying a Power supply for the speakers they are regular powered speakers that get powered from the USB port.

 

These are not USB speakers, They are USB powered speakers instead.

Real USB Speakers have electronics in them that acts as a sound card.

 

Check the Sound Mixer (Volume Control)  and see if the volume is turned down for any of the options or if Mute is selected. Usually double clicking on the little sound speaker in the bottom right corner of the screen should bring this up.

This is a sample

Notice that in this image, Line in is muted. That is probably to reduce noise.

I'm afraid I am out of suggestions. I battled with no sound where everything looked fine for a week. Then about 2 months later the speakers started working OK again.

 

Originally when You say One speaker lost sound it sounds like a bad speaker or Amp.

 

One Question, is this a Desktop computer? if so do the front speaker jacks work? If it is a self built computer is the wiring for the front jack connected and connected properly? Some home built the front jack routes the sound through to the rear speakers when nothing is plugged in and disconnects them when a headphone is plugged in for example so that both are not playing at the same time. In that case a bad front jack or wiring can cause your problem too.
