Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Some Dell computers come with a proprietary s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers. If not then you can buy a cheap device that can give you digital out unless you want to mess with third party drivers and enable digital out over SPDIF on your computer.

I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.

I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.

To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.

I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

2 Dell 5650 have no sound


the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound

No sound from Creative Labs Speakers- Please help


to localised your problem, try to plug your speakers to other sound source like mp3 player ,stereo system. if still no sound coming from it,your problem is within the speaker system. perhaps the audio power amplifier ic inside, need to be replaced.

Reinstalling speakers


Hi,

Most often, a recovery CD is provided with Dell PCs. This would contain all the necessary drivers. If it is still available, you need to pop it in the CD tray and look for a folder that says multimedia, sound, audio or something like that.

In the absence of the CD, downloadable drivers for a Dell Dimension 3100 running XP Home Edition SP2 would be here. You need to fill in the details.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you be in need of additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Are you sure it's the speakers? Try checking the volume controls and/or plugging another source of sound in the jack like earphones. Maybe it's not your speakers, but your sound card.

Subwoofer not working


Hi, What speakers (+sub) are you using (brand/model)? You have to consider whether it is basic 2, or 5.1 or 7.1. the Dell Dimension 9200C uses multiple sound connector at the back, the center/LFE connector (orange) should go to the sub-woofer in a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system. An online manual is available @ http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim9200C/en/SM_EN/about.htm Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
