Plug and play Monitor/Speakers

Q: Plug and play Monitor/Speakers

Hey! I bought a plug and play monitor with embeded speakers.. The monitor works great! But the speakers do not!!! I have everything plugged in right and it still doesn't work.

The monitor/speakers I bought is the 17 inch LCD monitor by Westinghouse
When I go to the sound and audio devices part of the control pannel, it sais "No Audio Device"
When I go to the hardware part it says that everything is working properly.
I am running windows XP Home Edition
I was thinking my computer is confused and only thinks it is a monitor, but the speaker part has its own seperate plug (the little green type)

I don't know what else to say about it so I guess we can just start with that.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had to restore my computer cause it crashed so I have reloaded Windows XP but now I can't seem to get my plug n play speakers to work... When I plug them in it doesn't show up anything new and also the speaker volume icon doesn't show on the bottom right and I have also gone into sounds to see if I can add a device and it won't allow me to do this either. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

I doubt the problem is the speakers. You need to install the driver for your sound card. Many sound "cards" are part of the motherboard ie onboard sound. We would need to know your exact specs in order to find a driver for you.

My Altec Lansing Xt1 speakers are not working. They were working for about 18 months fine until a few days ago.

My sound card is built in on my Asus motherboard and uses SoundMax Audio drivers.

Normally, when I plug them in, it'll switch the from my headphones (which is directly connected to the computer) to my speakers. However now, there is no more sound. My computer recognizes that it is connected. I click on Audio options, and my speakers are listed.

When I press the On/Off button there'll be about .5 sec to 1 sec which I hear some audio from my speakers but then it goes dead. Every time I turn it on and off, there's that split sec where some audio goes through.

However, it doesn't work anymore. I have tried
-Using a different usb power cord
-Plugging into other USB ports, including the front and back usb ports
-System restore to before the problem started
-Uninstalling the drivers for the speakers and letting it auto-install when I plug in again

It worked briefly when I plugged it into my front port. However, the next day when I plugged my speakers back in, it was non functional again.

Isn't Altec Lansing a decent brand, or are my speakers broken after less than 2 years? Any help would be appreciated - thanks.

A:Plug & Play Speakers not working

If your usb ports work properly with other plug n play devices, then it seems like you have a problem with the output on the speakers. Don't you have a warranty for the speakers? Send them for fixing.

So after my hard disk crashed, i installed windows again, this time it was xp as I already had the key. After I had installed, my speakers are not working. I think they need some kind of drivers but in windows 7 I just plugged them in and they played. Its usb speakers from intel. Can someone please tell me where to get the driver for plug and play speakers from? When I at first plugged them in,the windows device wizard opened and told me to pinpoint the location from where I could get these drivers, i didnt have any so I clicked on dont remind of installing this driver again, and since then, the speaker icon in device manager has also been lost. It showed up in sound, video and game controllers but now all i see is an high definition audio bus in other devices.

The screenshot has been attached.

Also, someone please tell me what the ethernet controller is, it is also showing up in otehr devices with no driver, can someone please tell me how to fix it?

Try starting your computer up in safe mode. and check the resolution setting of the graphics. If it is set too high for your old old monitor as you put it, lower the resolution. Try 800X600. Also try setting your color quality to a lower setting.

I am trying to install a 17" LCD Monitor with a no name LCD controller that has no plug and play capability. I have tried turning off hidden modes (works in 2000 Pro) and changing the monitor type to standard LCD 1280 by 1024. In the display information window it show 1280 by 1024 but it is displaying 640 by 480.

Anyone have a work around this feature of XP Pro? Oh, yes I have tried this on XP Home and it works up to 1024 by 768. Which is better then I get with XP Pro.

Thanks for any help I can get.

I have an Emachine T-5026 with an Intel 915GAG board. Ubuntu 7.10 is installed. I currently have a SOYO 24" LCD monitor in the system, (1920 X 1200 native resoution).
Ubuntu will not pick this monitor up at more than 640 X 480 resolution. I couldn't find a video driver for the Linux at Intel's support page. What now?

The previous monitor was a Westinghouse 22" at 1680 X 1050 resolution. Ubuntu picked this up at a maximum of 1280 X 1024.

The Intel XP video drivers for this chipset will provide all native resolutions.

Right-click on your desktop and chose "Properties". That will bring you to the "Display" option in "Control Panel". Click on "Settings", and then on the "Advanced" button near the bottom.

Next, click on the "Change" button near the top of the new window and then look for and select "Plug and Play Monitor". Windoze should be able to find and load the standard Plug and Play monitor drivers for you.

I have a PIII 700 motherboard with an on-board SIS 630 graphics card.

I updated the drivers for the graphics card recently, and it works just fine, with one exception - when the computer boots up, it doesn not load the driver for the plug and play monitor!

If I check the display properties (via Control Panel), it seems that the monitor cannot be recognised, and consequently the power scheme settings for the monitor do not work and have to be reset.

If I run the 'Add new hardware' applet, it finds the 'Plug and Play Monitor' immediately, and the system returns to normal!

I have been to the monitor manufacturer site (Logix) and can't find any specific drivers for the monitor. That doesn't seem to be the issue. I assume that it's probably tied up with the order in which things are being loaded, but I can't work out how to alter this?

This one has me stumped. Hope someone can help.

A:Plug and play monitor problem

Read other 7 answers

Hello all,

I have been having a problem with my monitor setup for ages and am now at the end of my tether...so need some help!

I have a Digimate L-1931W monitor, in plain speak, a 19" Widescreen TFT LCD monitor. The screen had been flickering (losing channels) for a while and I have diagnosed the cable as being the culpret (A VGA D-Sub, 15 pin cable). Change the cable you say...which I have done 3 times. Herein lays the problem.

This is where I show my staggering ignorance. The original cable seems to allow my windows XP machine to locate and install an appropriate driver for the monitor, and my Nvidia adapter has the monitor listed as a "M19W". Using any other VGA cable means that the monitor is listed as a "CRT" monitor in my nvidia control panel, and is impossible to change. Being CRT, it gives me no option to have the relevant widescreen resolution (in this case 1440 x 900), and also annoyingly flickers on and off as if it has a CRT gun! (when changing resolution).

Does anybody have any idea why changing a VGA cable would disable the plug and play driver installation from my monitor? Many thanks for any help.

Hi.... You guys helped me so much with another problem, (birthday present for son)...hoping you can help again. Temporarily, my mom has hooked up her computer in our house, but didn't have a monitor, so used our flat panel from our Dimension 2400. We ended up using HERS (not a flat panel, but a newer dell) and tonight I switched them back. Now our my son's Dell flat panel, which is supposed to be a plug and play PLANAR, will not register. The system is using the default VGA and all the text is too big, doesn't give any other display options but 16 bit. I tried turning the computer off for about a half hour and restarting, then unplugging the monitor, turning the pc on, and plugging the monitor in after the pc was started, hoping to see the "new hardware found" msg, but nothing. Why won't it detect the right settings automatically? (I recently also reloaded the entire system from the original boot cd again, since it was really congested). Help anyone?

I recently connected a Gateway VX1130 Diamondtron 22-inch CRT monitor to my IBM computer running Windows XP. The colors on the monitor are way off, even after trying to adjust them using the controls on the monitor itself. There's nothing wrong with the monitor; I got it from my uncle and colors showed up beautifully when he had it on his computer.

I thought downloading the monitor's driver might solve the problem, but every time I try to install it, I get a screen that says something along the lines of it won't install because the computer is using the generic Plug and Play driver instead. How can I get it to recognize the monitor's actual driver instead of the Plug and Play? And more importantly, if I am able to get the official driver to work, will the colors show up more accurately, or would I just be wasting my time?

Hey there people.

My problem is quite complicated, so bare with me. The problem has lasted quite a few months, me only getting around to trying to do something about it when I had time, seeing as I could just use my laptop for other things I do.

I've been reformatting/reinstalling Windows XP (Either Home or Pro) for quite a while now and have been having trouble with my monitor/video card. I'm not sure which is causing the problem.

So I've been reformatting quite a few times, and after each reformat/reinstall I've tried installing drivers (GeForce 6600 [Both the newest and the oldest versions - have tried both] and nForce 4 series) and after every time I've installed them the Display settings keep showing my monitor as Default, instead of Plug and Play as it use to do about a few months back.

Anyway, the reason this is problematic is that I can't play Battlefield 2 with these settings, and whenever I try to my computer shows an Out of Range message.

I'd really appreciate any help with fixing this problem.

Hi guys,

I've been rearranging my workspace, and tried to connect my monitor (viewsonic 19in flat screen) with an extension svga cable. The machine powers on and I get a display, but the optimal viewing resolution (the monitor has a little popup message that says 1440x900) is not available as an option when I go into display settings.
When I look in device manager, the monitor is listed as a generic plug/play device. Do I need to manually install a driver from teh manufacturer? Previously, when just plugging the monitor directly to the machine with no cable the display looked fine, but now it doesn't look as good.

You'd be better of with a long high quality cable then using an extension.

Yes, install the drivers from the manufactures website. These will help your GPU set the correct resolution.

Using a 3.5mm stereo mini phone plug to RCA jack adapter I have managed to connect my comps sound to the radio and it works. However, due to a fit of stupidity I have overlooked the fact that only either the radio's speakers or the computer's speakers can be connected to the computer's sound output at once.

I am wondering if its possible to have both my radio's speakers as well as my computer's speakers play at the same time because I would like to achieve a surround sound effect because of the way my room is made. My computer has a jack slot behind that looks like " (<-->)" , almost like that ordinary output one which looks like "(<-). Can that be used as an output slot as well? Cuz when I tried putting the radio into the (<-->) slot and the comps speakers into the (<-) or vice versa, only the one put into the (<-) will play.

I recently got a new HP zBook 15 with the slim docking station and am experiencing an issue related to the speaker output. If I plug my external powered Bose speakers into the line out of the docking station I get sound out of both the external Bose speakers and the internal laptop speakers at the same time. In addition the sound from the Bose speakers sounds horrible...tinny and completely lacking any bass. If I plug the Bose speakers into the headphone jack on the side of the laptop (not the docking station) then I get great sound and ONLY the Bose speakers produce sound (which is what I want). Is there a fix to get only the external speakers to play when plugged into the docking station audio out? I've uninstalled and re-installed the Conexent ISST Audio drivers twice...no change. I've tried messing with the B&O Sound Control panel, but it doesn't have any configuration for the audio ports. I've messed around in the Windows Playback devices control panel, but can't seem to find a way to shut off the internal laptop speakers. FYI, this is a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro. All Mircosoft updates installed. All HP updates installed via the HP Support Assistant. Latest laptop BIOS installed. Help! The sound output sounds HORRIBLE through the docking station. There must be a fix.

A:Plug-in Speakers Do Not Work

Hello All
Please forgive me for asking this probably simple question, but I'm not sure of the answer.
I just got a Optiplex 380 win7 32bit. I did not order speakers since I have NEC speakers (which I've had for quite a few years) that still work fine. At least they worked on my Dell Dimension 5150 XP machine that just recently died.
The NEC speakers have a power supply and there is a 'black' male plug that should go into the back of the computer. My question is exactly where do I plug them in? There is a 'light green' line-out connector and a 'pink-blue' line-in/microphone connector on the back of the computer. I'm assuming that I plug the speakers into the line-out connector....am I correct? Will I hurt the computer if I plug the speakers into the wrong place? Are there drivers for speakers that I might have to find and install?
Again, please forgive the maybe stupid questions but when it comes to computers I'm not very knowledgeable about the inner workings.
Thanks in advance

A:where to plug in external speakers

Hi -
Sorry but I don't know the correct term for this jack.

We have a notebook computer - HP, 4 years old, Win 7 - that requires the speakers to work and be loud enough to hear at the other end of the house. For whatever reason the jack that comes out the front of the computer and runs to the speakers (the built-in speaker is barely audible) has stopped working. Sometimes it works a little, especially if I sit there and jiggle it and don't let it go or walk away. It's a long jack.

Is there a way I can plug this into something else so that we can hear the speakers?

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi thanks for helping,

sound from speakers works fine, but when I plug earphones or headset into the jackplug(s) the sound still comes out the speakers and no sound in the earplugs/headset.

I have recently bought this as a refurbished pc and have only just tried to use earphones. ie it has never worked properly.

In control panel/sound there are no earphones/headphones devices listed under playback devices. Only speakers (default) and 2 HDMI devices (unplugged)

there is an IDT Audio software program installed

A:Solved: plug earphones in but sound still through speakers

What is the exact make / model of the machine?

Are you using a front speaker / headset socket for the headset and a rear socket for the speakers?

Not intending to insult your intelligence but are you definately plugging into the correct socket? It may have multiple speaker sockets (for 5.1 surround for example) which is very common nowadays, if you plug the headset into another speaker socket it will not cut the sound to the speakers already in use (if that makes sense).

Hi! My notebook only plays stereo on its own. I tried hooking it up to my computer speakers, but it still went only mono. I will test the speakers on my PC to see if they are not damaged. Plugged a cellphone headset, but still mono. I also tried plugging a gaming headset, but it will only work in stereo as long as I plug the microphone as well. My headset is a Sades SA-708. Have you guys seen this kind of problem already?

Thanks for the help!

A:Notebook not playing stereo on plug-in speakers

Hello and welcome Blacksmith mate the stereo switch sounds suspect to me as it could possibly be shorting the right and left channels out somehow when you push the plugs in. I am thinking this because it does it with different plug ins why the headset one works ok I cannot say.

I think you would need to take a look down the socket - not that without vey good eyesight you are going to see much and opening the machine looking would be what I would do but then again I have done a bit of work with laptops so easy to say.

Does anyone have any thoughts about the below statement? It's from MS Windows XP Inside Out by Bott, Siechert and Stinson. I'm getting conflicting information. In XP Annoyances by David Karp, it says just the opposite---make sure the BIOS is set to Plug and Play.

Any comments or insight would be greatly appreciated. When in doubt should I enable PNP or not?

"After verifying that you're running the most recent BIOS version, use the BIOS setup program to select the "non-Plug and Play operating system" option. This advice may seem counterintuitive-after all, Windows XP is indeed a Plug and Play operating system. However, this setting was intended for use with earlier Windows versions, and if it's set incorrectly it can prevent the Windows XP boot loader from accessing devices at startup. "


A:Plug and Play

Chances are it will make no difference. XP overrides many BIOS settings, IRQ's, and memory resource assignments.

I would tend to think that setting Plug and Play active would prevent conflicts between what resources were assigned if the BIOS' assignments differed from XP's preferences.

If there is ever a booting problem such as he described, just enter BIOS setup and try it the other way .

my computer just turned off on me for no reason in the middle of an installation. now, when i rebooted it, it claims that the "plug and play device enumerator" is not installed correctly or has a problem with the driver or some of its files. where can i download something to fix this, or what else should i do? i need to install other things, but i can't until i take care of this. please help me, thanks.

A:Plug and Play

what about trying the 'System Restore' feature if you're on XP or go to the microsoft support site and search for the error ou are describing.

This is an update to my last post, since then, the system crashed and have only just got back on line.
I have an IBM Thinkpad 240, model 2609-21U with Windows ME and am using a Micro Solutions Backpack bantam CD ROM external drive model 181100, parallel port connection.
Some months ago I attempted to load Office XP, this did not fully install and "unrolled" itself. This action somehow corrupted the registry and would not reboot even into 'safe mode.'
I finally got into DOS and ran scanreg. Then I ran configsafe, this has got the machine running but will not read the parallel printer port LPT1, USB or the IR ports. All else seems OK.
When I reload the backpack driver, it loaded in the control panel under a SCSI device manager with a conflict, when I rebooted using the 'safe mode', the control panel seems correct, but then I am in 'safe' mode and cannot access the CD-ROM.
At the moment the backpack driver loads into it's own folder in device manager, not under cd-drives, there is no cd-drive folder.
When I try to print, the paper keeps feeding through the printer continuously without printing.
The only conflicts I can find are :-
IRQ Holder for PCI Steering Device ID PCI\IRQ Holder\60 error code 22
I was also getting :-
Environment variables were found in the legacy files autoexec.bat and/or config.sys and the variables were moved to the windows registry. ---but this has now gone.
I downloaded the latest BIOS and installed it. Also d... Read more
