A4ankur: are you even sure that your PC's sound card supports 5.1? If in fact it does, it should have far more slots than you describe. If it does not, you should look into purchasing a new one in order to correctly utilitze your new speakers. This will involve going into the case of your PC but it is not a daunting task. I wouldn't purchase the cheapest one I could find. Nonetheless, they are not terribly expensive. Just make sure you get a PCI sound card and that is in fact 5.1. Many come with a number of output options and that would be recommended.

I have upgraded to Windows 7 and also a new Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard. 4GB DDR Ram I have plugged my Cambridge Soundworks SW320 in but I only get some sound, eg all music and back ground sound is...


Hi,
Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard supports 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel HD audio, whereas Cambridge Soundworks SW320 is 2.1 (only). Hence, the PC should be configured to provide 2.1 Channel output. The audio of your system may be configured to 2.1. So, please check the Realtec Audio sound manager/ configuration from the control panel or from tray (near clock) and set it to 2.1 (2 Channel Stereo Output).
Moreover, audio on your PC may be running on default HD Audio Drivers. So, you may also download/ install the latest drivers for Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard.
(Refer to download section at the bottom of the page). After installing audio drivers, you would be able to configure the audio.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Hello i have a medion 5.1 active sound system and i am trying to install it to an acer 5335 laptop but for some reason it will not work. i am using the usb method can you give me some advise and help...


hello Paul,

I understand that you wish to connect an laptop computer that has a standard stereo out(2 channels), earphoe jack or adio out to an active stereo system that supports the dolby 5.1 multichannel souround sound.

That is where the problem starts.The active sound system has more input channels than the two stereo channels given by the laptop, so connecting them via adaptor (audio out from laptop, earphone-like, 3.5 mm' male' jack to red and black chinch plug,'male' version to stereo L(left) and R(right) channel in at the active system) may provide you with extra stereo sound enhancement(like any other amplifier would), but no real surround sound..

To solve this, you would need a stationary desktop PC with an extra surround soundcard
that has all the multi channel out in it, as there is no chance to upgrade your laptop with such devices I am sorry to tell you that you perform an impossible task to get surround sound from your laptop.

I have a x-540 speaker system I brought today. Do I need a sound card to make it work with my pc. I hook it up/no sound.


A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed

No sound from speakers at all


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
