It's unspecific in several other ways.

What sort of output? Intended for speakers, or headphones,
or a line-style output.

What sound card is that? Enumerate the inputs and outputs,
how they are labelled, and which ones you are using.

What, directly? Full-size passive speakers, or active ones with
some sort of amplification built into them.

How loud? Just as loud as when the PC is running with the mixers
turned up, turned down, muted? Or just loud enough to be a
distraction if you're, say, dozing/sleeping in the same room?

You say "turn off" rather than "disconnect". Is that because the
speakers are being run from an amplifier that's independent of the
sound card?

Dunno. But it helps to have the problem explained.
We can't do house calls!
