Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers
I am haveing no sound coming from my rear left and right speakers at all. I have unpluged them and repluged the cords in. I have even played around with the settings on the comuter to have no help come from this either. Could you please help me and give me a few suggestions on what could be going on here. Thanks!!!!
I had the exact same problem and could not for the life of me figure it out. I literally just figured it out now, over two years later. If you plug your speakers into your computer using each separate plug (black, green, and yellow), use the adapter that should have come with the speakers set. I'm sure if you've had it long enough you may have lost it by now but luckily my pack-rat ways saved the day for me. Use the adapter so that you only need to plug into the green input and they work perfectly now. If that doesn't solve your problem... well I guess you're outta luck with me.

Great work, devmeister, and thanks so much! I had the problem for 3 years but luckily still had the adaptor in my "what the hell is this" bin? This may be the only time I've gotten something useful out of that bin!

Make sure that if your speakers have a front/rear balance that it is centered.

1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.
2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.
3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.
4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.
5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.
6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.
7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.
8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.
9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.
10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...
hope this will help you solve your problem.
