    I do have 3 input jacks, I had a 5.1 system previously but the subwoofer stopped working so I have bought a new one. Just no music now though and can't seem to get a solution.

If you're connecting a "5.1 surround system" to a single jack that you plug your headphones into, it's not going to work. Headphone jack is Stereo, 2 speakers. You need at least 3 input jacks for 5.1, plus one for the subwoofer. If you don't have these, you'll have to buy an add-on card.

Well i have a numark mixtrack with a dj-io soundcard. but i use a regular computer and not a laptop. my thing is i've seen these videos on youtube to try to connect it but it doesnt help. i want to be able...


if your desktop has two audio outputs (one for headphones and the other one to connect the speakers - both green), then you dont need dj io (or a second sound crad on the side), just go to config and chose the sound card settings to double inputs and in outputs chose both speakers and headphones' depending on what software you are using.

No sound on the Vista comupter. speakers plugged


Dose the sound card have surround sound on it, might need to enable the surround on it. Or try to plug the speaker cable in the black or green hole. And see if that matters. Good luck!!

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

May be yor codec (decoding system) is missed. Try different player, also if using Klitecodecks reset settings. Find sound program and turn off 5.1 or 7.1 sound and choose 2 speakers.

I have problem in my notebook with sound.pliz help me?


Try using a headphone or computer speaker to connect to the audio connector of your notebook and check for sound output by playing any music either from cd or on the system. If you hear sound then the problem is from the internal speakers of your notebook and should be changed otherwise the drivers are either missing or not installed at all.

Low sound in headphone


I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.

That should remedy the problem.
