This is normal on some systems
You need to have the speaker wire connected before turning on the computer, but if you then unplug it and plug it back in sound may be gone

One remedy is to plug the speakers in the back only (you may already be doing this)
And only use the front speaker connection for other devices
(Obviously I'm speaking of PC only)

Another option is to use USB connected speakers, and again always leave them plugged into the back (basically directly to the Motherboard

Not exactly sure if that's a remedy or not, but at least you know that it has been seen before
You should also confirm you have the latest Sound Drivers installed from your Manufacturer support site
And Windows has Service Pack 3 installed: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pr...

I hope that helps :)

Then try this (it can't hurt, but it can help)

Start > Run > chkdsk /r > ok > Y > Restart

Allow CheckDisk to automatically Check and hopefully Repair any issues on next restart

You can download your Motherboard Manual that will have your exact motherboard picture itself

Your manual can be located at you computer or motherboard manufacturer support site

Note: I also stated above to reconfirm your drivers are updated from your manufacturer support site
It may still be a bad or corrupted or missing driver (even though it was just moved and that's all)

Start > Run > rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl,,2 > ok

What does it state under: "Sound Playback"?

Also check Device Manager:
Start > Run > devmgmt.msc >ok
Are there any query (yellow exclamation symbol) marks under "Sound Controllers?

Everything is normal

Is it securely plugged in?
Are the speakers on and volume up?

Have you tried fully uninstalling Realtek (in Add/Remove Programs)
Restarting and installing the updated drivers again?

OK, how many ports are on the computer for speaker connections? If there are six, which I suspect, you have Realtek HD sound. You need to program the ports using the Realtek sound manager. You should have an icon in the tray next to the clock for the sound manager. Not the gray speaker icon but an orange one. open that and use it to configure the connections.

Why would you connect a speaker wire to your cell phone?

there is only 2...but originally its 3..but the other 1 is for the mic...so 2..input and output...and..I dun have an orange one...its only a blue icon with a dot in the center and a wave effects and the gray volume one..

i tried to play a music with my cellphone...and it worked...(after the speaker is not working)

There is no brand on the case? Did you get the computer new?

Download and use SIW to find information on the hardware. Get SIW at the link below.

OK, it doesn't appear the Epox is supporting that board anymore. So no manual is available. The first link below is the specs of that motherboard. It lists the correct driver. Perhaps there is some accompanying information with the driver. I suggest you download and install it.

You can get it at the second link below.

Also, the usual method to connect speakers that have a subwoofer that the other speakers connect to is to connect to Line Out, which should be marked on the port. May also be Green color.

Then just check to verify none of the setting for sound are muted. That is common when re-installing the drivers.

Look in Device Manager to verify the sound is working properly.
