Speakers getting no power, SPEAKERS AREN'T BROKEN.

  1. For some reason my speakers aren't getting any power from the computer, I tried them with my other computer, they worked fine. Tried the speakers from my other computer on this one, and they didn't work either.

    Any idea what's wrong? I'm guessing the connection inside the actualy computer is loose. Is there an easy and quick way to fix this problem? Or is it not even fixable?

    Thanks.

    Where do your speakers draw power from? Is it from usb, or another connector?

    Uhhh, Circuluar shaped connection thing.

    Plugs in right next to the power cable at the back of the computer.

    Sounds like the mains power output from your pc's power supply (psu) then. It can be fixed but it means removing and opening up your psu to check the connections on the inside of it.

    And how'd I do that? Don't know much about computers (Well, the stuff inside)

    Firstly, before you attempt anything like that, a new psu would cure the problem reasonably cheaply. If you dont want to do that then it does mean pulling your pc apart fairly majorly. Which you will have to do anyway to replace the psu.

    I need to know if u have the correct tools before u try. U will need a philips screwdriver, possibly a flat blade one too, and a test meter if u have one.
