Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.

    I DONT KNOW WHERETO PLUG IN MY SPEAKERS


    Hi,
    If you are using normal 2.1 channel speakers, That has a green jack cable coming from the speakers. Connect the same to the green round jack at the back of the system tower or in the front on the headphone jack. In case you can give the model number for the speaker . It would be easier to tell how to connect them. If you are using a laptop , connect them to the headphone jack either on the left or the right side.

    Just for refrence follow the link below

    I got a refurbished computer and do not know how to connect the external speakers I bought. I need a diagram or details on how to connect the speakers.


    The speaker output for the Dell is the light green audio jack on the back panel. Just plug your speaker connection into that jack.

    Audio cuts in and out in media center or while watching a dvd


    Check to ensure that the speaker connection plug is fully inserted into the speaker jack on the computer. Do the same for the power connection at the speaker, too. Slightly wiggle or twist the connections and wires - one at a time to isolate the source of the failure (can be the power plug or wire, audio plug or wire, or even the jack on the PC . If related to the speaker plug, try using the speakers in another speaker jack on the PC - or other device (mp3 player, etc.) if the problem is still present on both locations, it is related to the speakers / power. Try using a pair of headphones plugged directly into the speaker jack on the PC to see if the problem is present still. If the problem is common to both speaker and headphones, the jack on the PC is likely the culprit, and a new sound card will probably have to be installed. Otherwise, replace / repair the speaker cable, plug or system.

    The likely source of the problem is a stretched wire along the cord - or at the plug. A repair can be attempted if desired - or replace the speaker system if lacking tools or if unsure how to go about it.

    Unable to connect speakers to desktop


    The monitor has integrated speakers. This means that there should be a headphone jack at the front or side of the monitor. You can plug your (amplified!) speakers into this jack, and it will bypass your monitor speakers.

    How do i connect my logitech 210 speakers to the pc


    the two satellite speakers (small ones) should connect to the sub-woofer. from the sub, there should be an "audio out" or "to computer" jack. from that jack, you should connect to the speaker port on your computer (usually a green-color port).

    Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


    Hi rjlevesque

    For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

    Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

    I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

    Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

    You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

    Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

    green = speakers
    pink = mic
    blue = line in

    Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

    If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

    If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

    If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

    If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


    Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

    Thank you
