How come the speakers on my new Dell Inspiron do not work?

by on February 16, 2011

Q: I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron desktop computer with Windows 7. The speakers are definitely hooked up correctly but I can only get sound if I use headphones. The only time I cannot hear from headphones is youtube.com. All other music and game sounds are audible through the headphones, but not speakers. I’m using speakers from the old desktop. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Try using the speakers with a different computer or device. If they still don’t work, or that option isn’t available to you contact Dell about getting them returned.

    These are speakers from my previous computer, I didn’t buy new ones.

    Are you plugging your headphones into the same plug you were using for the speakers? If not, try that.
