Hello,

 

I just added speakers to my computer. They worked for a while, but, after I rebooted, the computer could not find them. They no longer are listed under Mixer or in Device Mangler. I ran mmsys.cpl, and they are not listed there, either.  I unplugged the speakers, then rebooted, then plugged them in again. Nothing, How hard can this be? They're just speakers, oh, excuse me, "audio endpoints."

G'day, yourself, Condobloke. Thanks for the suggestion, except that I am getting no sound from the speakers and the reason seems to be that Line-In is no longer working. Since I first posted, I have noticed that Line-In (under Recording Devices) no longer shows any activity on the volume lines to the right. Also, I can't configure it, because the Configure button is greyed out. Probably the speakers would work if they were getting anything from :Line-In.

Any suggestions of where to go from here?

Well....I don't mind admitting when i am out of ideas/out of my depth....

 

However.....I would give some thought to broadening the chances of finding the person here with the answer....

 

by posting this same question HERE

Dear Condoblike,

 

I also may have to accept that, somehow, the audio connections of the Kworld device (USB 2800) I am using aren't working. I checked all the connections (RCA red and white plugs). All are plugged in tightly, but it's about 10 years old, so possibly some little piece of wire has broken, though I haven't really moved it. Who knows.

Also, "system sounds" are coming through the speakers loud and clear, so those connections are OK. So, it could be that the audio part of my little video and audio capture device has expired. Maybe it's time to upgrade to a new one with ATSC capabilities (!).

If I figure this out, I'll let you know.

 

Best,

 

Charlotte Wolter
