How do i connect my dell 540 to a receiver?


The audio output jacks on the back of your computer are for 5.1 speaker setup. Meaning that you have a speaker array of 2 front side speakers, 1 center speaker, 2 rear left and right speakers and a sub-woofer speaker. Here is a link to the set-up giude of your computer:

Hi i have creative sound blaster 5.1 surround sound. 2 rear, 2 front, center, and sub woofer. i am not getting sound out of the rear speakers. does this box have the capability of running all the speakers...


Your Dell supports up to 7.1 surround sound...I'm guessing you have something hooked up incorrectly. If not, make sure your drivers are up to date on the sound card.

New Sound Card is not working.


Ted, the first thing you should do is go into your computer's BIOS and disable the built-in sound card. Once you do that, go back to your device manager and if the onboard sound card still appears there remove or disable it. Then reboot and your new sound card should be recognized and you can install drivers and begin using it.

I am trying to connect my logitech x530 speakers to my computer but centre is not working correctly


If the speaker connection is in front, Maybe the front panel is audio is not working or not enabled on motherboard. Try with the back panel audio jack.

If you are sure that your speakers are right, there are following possible reasons that you are not getting the audio.
1) Volume is turned off/ low
2) Sound drivers not installed/ corrupted.

I can help you with the remote desktop assistance, if you allow.

How do i hook up Altec Lansing AVS500 speakers to my computer


Hello sweetnikki1,

The Altec Lansing AVS500 are 4.1 channel speakers, meaning 4 speakers (front, rear and 2 satellites) and a subwoofer.

1. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the satellite cords are similarly color coded. The output from the sub to the front right satellite is a heavy-duty cable that immediately stands out from the rest. This cable is thicker because the right front speaker has most of the system controls on it: power, volume, and surround volume. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.

2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, on the left side are the sub level control, the AC jack, satellite outs, and a sound mode switch. With this switch you decide between Gaming and Stereo. In Stereo mode, the normal stereo signal is sent to both the fronts and the rears. In Gaming mode, the speakers use the four-channel signal from your soundcard. Hence if you just hav the regular sound card, do not connect the satellite speakers and use Stereo mode.

3. You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.

Hope this helps..

No sound from logitech x-230 subwoofer


Try the following steps:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
