Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Logitech X-540 Configuration Confusion

Logitech X-540 speakers(obviously)
P5RD2-VM asustek mobo with pink, green and blue sound jacks
pretty sure pink is mic
so green goes in green, which leaves black for blue

main question, assuming above is correct;
what settings should i use for my pc knowing the orange cord isnt plugged in?
'5.1 surround'
'surround'
'quadaphonic'
'desktop speakers'...

probably have to use the matrix for the rears which is fine, but there's an extensive list in the sound settings beyond basic computer speakers
tried a bunch but have the distinctive sense that it's not quite right

thanks muchly in advance
great site btw

Your speaker system is designed for the 5.1 surround. *********** board manual shows you which wire goes to where.

PINK -- if you have a microphone, connect it here

GREEN -- if you have a headset, or you have external speakers, connect it here,
to get 2-channel stereo output ("left" and "right").

BLUE -- if you have an iPod (or iPod Touch), or audio-cassette player, and you want to feed the "audio-output" from those devices into a program that will record the sound on the "line-input" port on your computer, then you need to connect this port.

Since your new motherboard does not support 5.1 audio-output, you need to purchase a sound-card that has GREEN and PINK and ORANGE and BLACK sockets, so that you can get sound into the "middle" and "back-left" and "back-right" speakers.

Or, just connect the GREEN, to use your speakers in two-channel mode.

You'll also need to access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, to download the correct device-drivers for the audio-hardware embedded onto the new motherboard, in order to get _ANY_ output out of your sound-card.

what do you mean by your rear sound jack? is that the 3 jacks that you use to connect to your computer ? it depend on if you have 5.1 system or 2.1 system but normally you can plug it in this order : green , yellow , black . The pink normally is for Mic port but if you don't have it then insteed 1 of those 3 colors you replace it with the pink. And again you have to have a software on your computer which is usually come with your computer when you buy it. You'll have to manually configue those port in the software on your computer to get it to work. Good luck and keep me updated.

No sound from computer speakers


Make sure that you have the speaker plugged into the GREEN jack on the back of the computer or sound card. If they are not color coded then make sure it is plugged into the speaker out. Pink is for the mike and Blue is or plain is for input. You probably already know this but sometimes it helps to know if your not sure. Hope this is of some help. Bud
