What kind of software do you have?

If you have Windows: go to Start Menu / Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder.

plug in your mic. turn it on. say "testing...testing..check, one, two...sockpuppets, sockpuppets"

in Sound Recorder, click on the button with the red circle. You'll be recording in .wav format.

If you want better quality sound than the default, go to File / Properties / Convert Now

here you can choose a higher sampling and bit rate. Standard CD audio is 44.100kHz, 16 bit, Stereo. Take note that the higher quality the file, the more hard drive space is occupies.

If you want to get crazy with more involved audio software, I have lots more to say.

Buy a 3.5 mm-to-RCA audio cable (you will probably need a long one). Plug the 3,5 mm. end of the cable into the headset jack of your laptop and the RCA end of the cable into the RCA/composite (R/L) audio input of your receiver.

Hi I've a SAMSUNG HT-Z310 and I'm trying to connect it to my laptop or home broadband, is that possible?? If what do I need or need to do?? Many thanks Brian.

Sometimes, when connecting phones to laptops, you have to update software information on your laptop, requiring internet connection. Also, you must make sure that if your phone has an option for USB under its Connectivity in Settings, that it says PC Suite, Mass Storage, or Modem.

Note: Not all phones are able to be connected to a computer.

You can use a cable with a 1/8-inch mini stereo plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what it looks like. Plug the mini-stereo end in to the laptop's headphone jack and plug the RCA end into an open input on the Sony receiver and you'll be good to go. You'll just need to juggle the two volume settings (laptop volume and receiver) to get the best sound.

How to connect dell e 6410 laptop to philips home theater system

I assume you want the laptop to be the source and the HTS to play it back.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here:

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the laptop

Need to connect Boss BR 1180 to laptop and don't have a clue..

To be completely honest I am from the old school service industry going back to Multitrack Tape recorders. I found it interesting researching your problem and hope I can be of some help. It appears you have purchased the BR-1180s not the BR-1180cd-r. The BR-1180cd-r sells for $899.00 and a used upgrade kit sells for $169.00, which is not sold by Roland/Boss anymore and are not good financial choices for you. To answer your question you can record from the BR-1180s to a WAV or MP3 on your laptop. I would use the RCA output and an RCA to 3.5mm stereo connector available at Radio Shack or Cables To Go at the following link.
Plug the RCA red connector in the BR-1180s right line out and the white connector in the left line out. Plug the 3.5mm male connector into the laptops line in (Blue) jack. Now that you have the hardware connected you need to have software for the computer to record the audio. if you have a program like Roxio 2010 you can use the music creator to record and edit the audio output from the laptops line in. If you do not have recording software you can do a Google search for free pc recording software or click on the link bellow.
If you have a Macintosh your should already have the software to record on your system.
Launch your recording software on your laptop computer. From your audio manager (click on the audio manager icon located by the clock) set the mixer volume on line in so it will not clip or distort. If you do not hear any sound make sure your BR-1180 is in playing your mastered recording and the laptops line in is turned on. You now should have your recording on your laptop and be able to edit and save it from the laptops recording software. From this point you can burn the .WAV or .MP3 to a CD or DVD.

Static when connecting more than one audio input to amplifier

OK. Both are attached via analog cables to different inputs so what you're hearing is NOT actually audio program-related but more likely some kind of grounding or shielding issue.

Lower the volume then see what happens if you...

...float the laptop so it's running on its battery?

...reattach the laptop power but rotate the AC power plug 180 degrees?

...rotate the CD power connector?

...disconnect only the laptop audio?

...disconnect only the CD audio?

Something should change the symptom.

Hooking laptop to onkyo sr604 through hdmi no sound through stero

hdmi is video only

you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.

you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono

use the i/p marked aux/cd/

make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.

The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.

Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.

To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.

hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

if this is helping please vote.

How do I connect my Lenovo X200 Tablet to my new 52" Sony XBR tv and Sony STR-DA3400ES Receiver for HD viewing and home theater surround sound?


Couple things to be aware of:
1. The X200 is not available with a Blu-Ray drive. So, your HD content will need to come from somewhere else, such as downloading from iTunes. Alternatively, you can purchase an external Blu-Ray drive. (it may be cheaper / easier to buy a dedicated Blu-Ray player if that's the route you want to go).

2. The X200 only has analog audio output. The only surround you'll be able to receive is Dolby Pro-Logic, provided your source material has it encoded that way. You can connect your laptop to the receiver via a 1/8" to RCA adapter, available at virtually any electronics retailer. (Buy the cheapest one you can find) Connect the 1/8" plug to your headphone jack on the laptop, and the white and red RCA connections to any available input on the back of your receiver. (such as CD, AUX, DVD, etc.) Select that input on the front of your receiver and you'll hear the output of your laptop. Enable surround sound processing (pro-logic) on your receiver. Check the manual for instructions on how to do that.

3. Purchase a VGA cable (I recommend ). I suggest staying under 15' for optimal quality. Connect one end to your laptop, and the other to the PC-in on the back of your TV. Select that input using your TV's remote. (On my Sony, I press Menu, External Inputs, then PC)
4. Set up your laptop to use the external monitor. I suggest leaving your laptop off till you plug in the VGA cable. If upon booting your laptop is outputting to the TV display, usually a key combination such as Shift-F7 will enable it.

Alternatively, your TV has an 1/8" audio input jack that goes along with the PC input. If you've connected the audio out of the TV to your receiver already, the audio from your laptop can pass through the TV to the receiver. 1/8" cables can also be purchased from

Let me know if that helps!
