Hi there have the speakers ever worked or are they new?
Also - how are they connected to your soundcard (digital/analogue)?

I would suspect a fault in the cable running from the PC to the Distribution speaker. It may be frayed, broken/cut or a faulty contact.

Try plugging a pair of headphones into the output of the computer, that will prove it one way or the other. Also make sure you haven't inadvertently ticked the "Mute" box in one of the Volume slider controls.
