Plug them into a walkman or a portable CD player or portable MP3 player (line out -- not the headphone out). If they work on those, they are good - otherwise they are a cheap throwaway item.)

What's happening with the computer audio? No sound? distorted sound? Perhaps reinstalling the audio drivers may be a solution?

Does your sound card have 4 point surround? or 5.1? Is it possible you've got them plugged into the "rear" speaker socket on the sound card and are only getting part of the sound you should? :)

On the same note, is the software on the PC attempting to output in 5.1 Surround, and not regular stereo, but you only have "front" speakers, and therefore aren't hearing what would be going on behind you?

Simplest way is to go to Device Manager>Sound Video and Game Controllers and delete your sound card. (for example mine is SoundMax integrated digital audio).

Reboot. It should recognize new hardware and resinstall the drivers. If you have a driver disk with the sound card drivers you may want to update them using the drivers from the disk.

Pretty much. Usually I do that routine with my network card. I haven't had any probs with audio, but it should be no different.
