Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer.com!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help.

Jesse :

What is the make/model of the speakers?

Customer:

Hi Jesse,

Customer:

Bose computer MusicMonitor....

Jesse :

Do they connect to your computer through the USB port, or just through the audio jack?

Customer:

Audio jack, they have worked fine and are switched on... LOL. Just found that after installing LION they don't work any longer?

Jesse :

Open your System Preferences (located under the Apple menu in the upper left corner of your screen), select the Sound pane, and choose the Output tab.

Jesse :

Make sure it's set to Headphone.

Customer:

Standby 1......

Jesse :

Okay.

Customer:

Okay - did not show headphones........ but re-plugging them in and has now shown them! Cool Jesse, many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX now! Have a good one!

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
