  1. Hey everyone. I have a quick question maybe someone could please help me with. Here goes...

    I have Altec Lansing speakers (2 speakers and a sub) on my Windows XP. I was watching a movie and my sound just quite on me. No popping noise, nothing. Just silence. I didn't have the volume really high, nor the bass.
    The speakers still have power and turn on. I tried plugging them into my Ipod, nothing. Tried just the left speaker in my Ipod and it actually worked!
    (Setup= left speaker to the right speaker, right speaker to the sub woofer, sub to the computer and wall.)
    I don't think it's software because head phones work with my computer.
    So, does anyone have any ideas why the speakers don't work?

    Thanks!!
    -Lcircus

    P.S. Speaker serial number: CHW0529366

    setup you write is common for altec lansing speaker, but can you tell us what series is yours? I mean if you cant try to find the pic on the internet.

    I know what you mean by putting in the left speaker to the ipod. It was just like a piece of ACS45.1

    Do you know how long have been your speaker works? If it;s old, maybe some component need to be replaced i.e wires and some capacitor.
