    external speakers not working/pc has internal speakers

    i have a pavillion desktop that has internal speakers, i just bought a bose 2 companion sepeakers and want to use it as my default speakers, but there's no sound coming from bose speakers. Bose speakers are plugged in, but sound still coming from the monitor speakers. I have Vista 64 home premium.

    Hi jc,

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Never seen one of these before, Try right clicking on the speaker symbol in the notification area, select Playback Devices, You should be able to select the speaker device that you want to use.
    Right click enable/disable Hide/unhide
    Left Click will allow you to configure the device after selecting Configure
    Properties will also give you some options

    I hope this helps

    Pooch

    I did that but still not working, I have a HP monitor with HDMI cable going to the tower. The internal speaker is coming from the monitor itself. I disabled the HDMI audi and clicked on other speakers, when I clicked the test, the bars goes up and down but no sound. I called HP but they can't help since they don't support external speakers. Called Bose and they can't help me either. Oh well.. will keep trying. Thanks.

    Did you do a new start?

    Can you send me some screenshots of your playback devices b4 and after you change it?

    Maybe from device manager as well
