    Speakers Stopped Working

    Recently, I got a new computer desk to set my Windows Vista desktop on. I unplugged everything, and moved the new desk into place. I placed the computer on the desk and plugged everything back into the right place. I turned on the computer, and tried to play some music, but my speakers wouldnt work. I checked to see if they were turned up,and they were. I also checked to see if they were plugged into the right spot on the computer unit. I unplugged an plugged them into several spots, but to no avail. Please help.

    PS: Ive done this once before, and fixed it, but I cant remember what I did.

    Hello, yeah, had that happen to me before. Try this, with the speakers unplugged , restart computer, when it has got everything started , as far as start up processes finished, plug in the speakers, You should see the Balloon pop up of New Hardware installed, and it should auto detect it and after a few seconds or so, it should show you in the Audio Manager , when you open it up, a Sound Manager option, test it out and see if it giving you the stereo sound by pressing the test button , which is in the Speaker tab, you should see a blue test button.. check that out and post back how that works out please.
    This icon i have on my taskbar is a red icon of a speaker. see if you have that , and open it up to do what i have posted above ^^^^^.
