Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Logitech speakers will only play on 2 speakers not 5

Please help me, i bought and installed a creative sound card for these speakers (logitech x530). Any music i play from my windows media player or itunes only plays on 2 speakers (front right, front left) I've tried everthing i can think think of. When i run a test on the speakers the sound comes out of them all. i even downloaded a test tune on the windows media player home page and it played out of all 5 speakers. This baffled me. I'm totally lost now. I'd be forever greatful for any helf you can provide. thanks liamog

    I have Promax 4.1 speakers. The problem is that the right channel has stopped giving any sound [there is very very low sound almost negligible] I thought it would be the sound driver issue but when i connect the same to my mp3 player right side still wasnt functioning. i exchanged the speakers from right to left and found out the same speakers function when connected to other channels meaning both right channel input switch [3.5mm] in the woofer [for speakers] dont work.... previously also i experienced same problem but they use to wrk after restarting the power of speakers.  Plz help .... whats wrong with my speakers? also i repeatedly get some mssg from realtek audio manager that new input found in the front panel which points to mic. where i have no front panel. Acc to me, this problm may nt be related to the first one.

Liamog, i bought the exact same speakers and sound card, and i had the exact same problem as you. I tried for days to fix it and it turns out that its only a setting you have to enable in your sound card settigns. If you go into your EAX console for your creative sound card you will find a thing that sams CMSS 3D, and all you have to do is select the button that says Enable CMSS 3d surround. I hope this will fix your problem. Alex.

I am currently on Windows 7 Ultimate and I have surround system of Logitech X-530 and the front 2 speakers a playing sond how do I solve this to make the other work as well? Additional information: I also...

Hi...hard time with your logitech Speaker., do you have a 5.1 sound card install inside your pc, like 6 outputs and two input jack on your sound card... a pro sound card to make your logitech X-50 work like a charm if you dont have... I suggest to by a creative soundblaster pro 5.1, but if you do have a surround sound card with 6 input jack install in your pc and fail to work properly...ride down the model of your sound card and check if it compatible with windows 7., just download the patch for it... good luck.

Creative sound card! no sound!

Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

I have a creative audigy Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Sound Card and Creative 7.1 surround sound speakers. When I was using XP all 7 speakers worked perfectly. Now with my newer Vista machine,...

Uninstall all sound drivers for the card. Delete all folder and use search to locate everything related to the sound card. Remove card , turn comp on w/o card. Turn off reinsert card.
Should fix it.
Vista has many,many issues like this.
If you have more types of sound listed in "SOUNDS" delete all but Audigy.
Re-install drivers AFTER you get ALL NEW VISTA UPDATES>
