Yes, and don't overlook the obvious like that the computer's volume control (speaker icon in tray lower right corner) is up at least half way. If the volume control there is too low or muted, you will not get sound or not decent sound.
Also I have noted that if you plug in speakers for the first time when the computer is off or in sleep mode, it may not recognize the speakers and not auto configure them for you but if you plug them in when the computer is on, they are detected and windows will ask you what you have plugged in. If you click on speaker (or headphone, or microphone), it will configure it for you or if necessary, bring up the correct configuration window for you.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

It sounds like the units themselves are defective (unless they have some hidden volume control). Any chance of trying them in someone else's computer?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It may sound silly, but are you sure you have plugged them in to the right socket? It's the green one on most computers.

Try plugging them into a phone or MP3 player.

If you have HD sound you must program the port. As stated, the Green port is usually the correct port for line out.

Open the Orange speaker icon and program the port by clicking on it. Then check both volume controls. Orange and White speaker icons in the tray.
