    Most likely the problem is a bad connection.

    If you're running them from a wireless source that could the problem. Either a bad signal ot bad unit in either the computer or the speakers

    Reset the system sound level to mid level volume, shut the computer down and then check the speaker wiring.

    These days a lot of speaker systems come with thin, shoddy speaker wiring that is easily damaged.

    Particular areas to pay attention to:

    Connections may appear to be good but aren't.

    Any area where the wiring may have been pinched. This can cut at least some of the wire strands and not even leave an external mark.

    Avoid sharp bends in wiring especially at the connecters. Another area where internal damage can occur.

    If possible cross check by using a different set of speakers or a different source. Be careful and avoid overdriving the speakers.
