I bought brand new speakers for my computer at the beginning of the month, but today they aren’t working properly. They sound like they are only half working. I spent a ton on these speakers! How can they be broken already?
Beaten by the speakers
There could be a few reasons why your computer speakers don’t seem to be working properly anymore. If they were properly working before, it should be easy to fix.
First, check to ensure your cat (or anyone else) has not accidentally partially unplugged the speakers, or unplugged them and plugged them into the wrong spot.
Next, depending on what program you are using, there could be a few spots where you can control the volume. As well as the volume controls on the speakers themselves, there are also the volume controls on your computer. These controls can either be found on your keyboard, or on your toolbar, near where the date and time would be displayed. The program you are using may also have its own volume controls. On iTunes, for example, there is a volume bar in the top left corner near the play controls. On YouTube, there is a volume control under the video you are viewing.
If your speakers are still not properly working, it could be a hardware issue with either your computer input for the speaker, or the speaker itself.
