Have you tested the speakers on another computer? Have you installed all of the software including the Creative Audio console?
If yes to both, you need to go into the Creative Audio Console and select the speaker configuration tab and use the drop down menu to choose the speaker configuration you are using. They offer 2/2.1 4/4.1 5.1 6.1 and 7.1 options. If you don't select the speaker configuration, the speaker ports for the other channels are disabled.
There are also options in various media players for speaker configurations. Most don't auto configure. At least not with the Creative Audigy cards.
Hope this helps.

Cheers

Dear Sir/Mdm, I just reformatted my computer and since then, I have no been able to get my speakers (altec lansing v1520) to work. May i please know what driver(s) I need to download to get it to work....


You don't need any drivers to make the speakers work what you need is the audio chip drivers for your motherboard ( the model of which you have not mentioned ).At the bottom right hand side of your desktop next to the clock do you see a icon of a speaker ?. If you don't , your sound driver has not been loaded. If you have the motherboard utility disc the drivers will be on it. If you don't ,you can go to the motherboard website on the net and type the model number and download all the drivers necessary to run the PC.
Just remember after loading the drivers remember to restart the PC to make the application run.

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...


To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.

Logitech soundman G1 cases don't function..Do I need a driver ?


Driver might need to be reinstalled but to confirm this you should attach any other set of speakers of Headphones. However the driver or improper installization of windows xp usually causes this on getting updated. I'm not sure that what windows you are using therefore you can probably just check if the cables are pind in right sockets and that the Speackers are getting power. As far drivers are concerned the Speakers do not have any drivers but the sound card does, therefore if you have not installed the drivers of sound card you may install them now. This may solve the problem hope fully

Trouble with rear speakers


This may be a software issue. If you only had two speakers before, the software will not use the rear speakers.
Go to Control Panel. Click on "Sound and Audio Devices". Under the Volume Tab, at the bottom, you will see a picture roughly representing the type of speakers.
Click on the Advanced button.
Click on the arrow in the pick box, and choose Surround Speakrs or the 5.1 Speakers.
Click Okay. Try the speakers again.

Speakers are not being recognised


i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck
