My new Logitech speakers work fine if I plug them into front audio jack.Get no signal if plugged into rear audio jack. Have default sound card. Any suggestions on what I need to try would be most welcomed.
Are you sure you are using the green speaker socket?
If you indeed have a sound card, you should have two sets of sockets. Try the other set.
Thanks for the replies. First, I have problems with other speakers as well.
As for sound card, I misspoke. I have only one set of jacks in the back. I know that I plugged in to the green jack. That was the first thing I checked.
One possible clue. I had another speaker that did initially work. However, after updates speaker stopped working. I don't recall if they were MS or other. I tried speaker in a laptop (both have Win 8.1) and it didn't work there either. I checked Logitech speakers on the laptop and they work.
Is there some Device Setting that could be the problem. With my very limited knowledge I found no clues and even set the AMD sound properties back to default..
Again, any ideas would be most appreciated.
Most likely, Win 10 installed a Microsoft generic driver. You didn't say what Dell model. Go to the driver page on the Dell site and look for a Win 8 driver. of not any or it doesn't work, you need to go to the audio supplier's site and look for one.
I would like to blame it on Win !0 but have yet to install it on my computer. Sorry about not identifying computer but I have an XPS 8700. I bought it last year.
If driver problem wouldn't both front and back jacks fail to work?
Thanks for your help.
