External Speakers stopped working

by jtsource / August 30, 2011 6:03 AM PDT

Mac 24 with W7 Paralells.

Does anyone know how to adjust the settings so that I get sound again trhough my external speakers? The internal ones work fine on either system. I checked the speaker out on another system, and they worked well.
When I go to specifications and sounds, there does not appear to be a tab for output.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated...".mac novice in the woods"

You are well inside all support systems. It's time to use them.

The OP has another issue in they have W7 and Parallels which is going to be a support black hole.

As Bob suggested, back to Apple on this one,

Just as an FYI, this part of the Mac forums is marked for those with problems using the Classic (System 9) operating system when running OS X.

Your computer is not capable of doing that.

Not a biggie, I can see how you got here, but know that his section of the Mac forums is not visited very often.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
