My 10 year old speakers died. ( No sound, even the on light wasn't glowing) They had come with my first computer and not only plugged into the CPU but the AC as well.
I replaced them with Polk audio speakers that plug only to the CPU. However the sound is barely audible. I can plug in headphones but I don't want to be always tied to my computer.
Ive boosted all the places I can find to raised the volume and made sure none where muted.
My speakers were old but my HP computer just turned 3.
I tried to "introduce " them to my computer like you would a printer but there was nothing similar in the drop down menu.
Help please.

Assuming you are using Windows XP,have you tried this route?
Control Panel/Sound & Speaker/Audio Devices/Adjust System volume/Audio Tab/Sound Play (volume button)/Master Volume Control.Try moving wave slider,synth slider & PC speaker slider in master volume Control to High.
A long shot..check to make sure the speakers aren't plugged into the headphone jack.
Is it surround sound?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
