You’re not getting any output because they can’t be connected that way! Here’s what the colored jacks on your PC are for. Notice the green/lime jack is OUT while the blue one is IN. The red/white jacks on the subwoofer are the right/left INPUTS for the speakers and, to product sound, they both must be connected to the green/lime OUTPUT from the PC. Connecting one of them to the blue IN jack created a direct loop-back where the audio signal ..read more

Thank you so far. Yours truly forgot he could get the color codes for the sound card on Wikipedia. I still have not yet gotten the audio restored. But now I have reached a point where something is not in question. The pink port is for the microphone. That is correctly connected. For what remains, the red and white jacks from the front subwoofer are going into the light blue and lime jacks on the rear of the desktop. This is what the ‘Sound’ section of Control Panel now displays = This is still no audio coming out of the speakers (@ 67%). I tried playing a podcast. The seconds tick, but not ..read more

@steved Eastern MX-103N is a set of passive speakers connected with speaker wire coming from something else that powers them. Apparently, that something else would normally be a AX-5007 “Super Woofer” (probably on the floor). On the PC tower, the group of 6 colored jacks are all for audio. They are: Gray: side (for surround side speakers) Black: rear (for surround rear speakers) Orange: c/sub (for front center speaker and subwoofer) Pink: mic (microphone) Green: out (stereo left and right, or surround front left and right) Blue: in (line input that’s usually not a microphone) My best guess ..read more

n0ads has beaten me to a response. Terminology protocol here: USB end is a plug. And the Y-ends also are plugs. – A jack is a receptacle, into which something else is plugged. – Also, the term jack many times implies that it is at the end of a cable. – On the computer panel, the word ‘port’ is preferred, although ‘jack’ also is freely used in audio. The two (speaker input) cable ends in n0ads photo appear to be what are called RCA plugs or pin plugs. As he says, Red=Right, white=left. Some cables have black=left. One cable goes to each speaker. But were these disconnected during the repair ..read more

Steve wrote: The speakers are the Eastern MX-103N. The outputs are red and white. Those Red/White outputs are standard stereo speaker connections (red = right, white = left) and require a special adapter for connecting to a PC. You indicated you have a Y-shaped cable with a USB port and two jacks which, if it’s the right adapter, “should” look something like this. The two jacks, which are “normally” also red/white, plug into the red/white connectors on the speakers while the USB can be plugged into any USB port on the PC ..read more

Looks like your output and input cables need to plug into their corresponding cable ports labeled “In” and “out” from the photo you posted. Are your cables color coded by any chance? Anyway, I don’t think it would hurt to plug the cables into the “In” and “out” ports. Your audio sound system on the Win7 should pop up with the results after plugging them in, providing of course they are properly connected. I’m guessing at all this so maybe you should wait until someone comes along with a solid fix and instructions. And yes, I would reboot after all is said and done and working good. Never hurts ..read more

People, somehow I have managed to lose my computer’s audio. I hear the ‘beep’ of the Windows 7 operating system when it boots. But nothing else. I suspect I disconnected a physical cable when having to replace my surge resister. The key physical item is a Y-shaped cable. One end goes into a USB port on the tower, and the other end of it, with two jacks, goes… Where? The back end of the tower is up against the wall here at the abode. But I have managed to get a few photographs of it. {insert jpgs} As far as I can tell, the speakers function. Its physical connections are good. The speakers are t ..read more

Back-and-forth like that with what’s probably a very popular feature is a great way to lose customers, no matter what the product. At this point, from what I’ve read at all the links that have been provided in this thread (some have been eye-openers), I’m not even sure that there’s an actual company called Piriform any more. I don’t recall seeing a mention of Piriform’s name on the Gen Digital site, only the mention of the name ..read more

Has anyone noticed that Custom Clean is working again after updating to the latest CCleaner Free v6.25.11131 (released 01-Jul-2024)? There are a few users posting today in steambc’s topic Custom Clean now only works with Pro License? in the CCleaner forum that Custom Clean is working again since their “standard” installation of CCleaner Free updated to v6.25.11131. I can’t test myself because Custom Clean is still working for me in the previous CCleaner Free Portable v6.25.11093.  Recall that I delete all excutables bundled inside the Portable .zip file except CCleaner64.exe and have crea ..read more

Are you using the same HDMI port on the TV to view streaming via Windows 10 and a DVD via Windows 7? If you’re switching devices on the same HDMI port, you may need to power off all machines (TV + PCs) before disconnecting the HDMI cable to then reconnect it. I’m no expert on HDMI, but I’ve heard of issues with handshaking when trying to plug/unplug an HDMI cable while it’s powered. Did you try changing the display resolution on your Windows 7 computer to 1920 x 1080? A different approach altogether would be to find a new program to play your DVDs on the Windows 10 computer, for example Window ..read more
