Hi all,
I dunno how, but suddenly my whole audio system sort of... stopped working. I had a problem a long time ago when 5 speakers stopped working despite the fact that when I plug in front center and in right/front speaker's input, they started working again. Now there's no input's left working, only when I starting to plug in 7.1 audio cables into computer, I hear some crackings, but after that, it's just silence, that is all.
I tried to check if that's the problem with my computer's audio input by checking with different speaker. It showed that it's everything alright, speaker works. I tried to connect speaker of the same Creative Inspired( plugged in subwoofer) in radio set. It also worked.
What kind of problem could it be ?

It'd help us if we knew of your sound card's make and model. If you're on a motherboard's onboard audio solution, then please state how you've connected from the audio outputs to your speakers inputs. If this is too much to explain, two pictures would suffice ;)

Speaking of suffice, if you're sure you've connected the speakers in the proper order, then have you made sure you're on the latest audio drivers? Uninstall them and reinstall. If you're on Windows 10, make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard.

P.S. I'm sure that driver isn't a problem. I'm wondering if this wouldn't be just the tip of the iceberg
 
To clarify you get audio out of all the 7.1 outputs of the PC with another speaker. So we know that the PC is OK.
You checked each of the satellite speakers of the T7700 and each makes some sound on its' own (maybe not too loud?).
The power adapter for the T7700 could be bad. Check that with a VOM. It should be marked with the voltage and if it is AC or DC.
The amps inside the T7700 sub could be bad. Not really something you can repair without skills and parts.
