Can a Dell Dimension 3000 connect to 5.1 surround sound

If your Laptop has a "Latitude C/Port Advanced Port Replicator" Then this Port Replicator connects Dell Latitude notebooks to peripheral devices such as a monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse. To accomplish this, connect your peripheral devices to the Dell port replicator itself, and leave them connected to it. Then connect your notebook to the port replicator to access the devices without having to attach them individually each time you want to use them. You can also set up speakers on the Dell Latitude C/Port port replicator to provide improved quality audio.

Follow following steps:
1) Place your Dell Latitude notebook in your C/Port Advanced Port Replicator and turn on the notebook using the power button.
  • 2) Place the speakers you want to connect to the port replicator on either side of the port replicator according to the Left and Right (L and R) labels on the speakers.

  • 3) Plug the audio line connector from the speakers into the audio line out plug on the port replicator. The audio line out plus is on the right-hand side of the port replicator base next to the infrared port, directly opposite the notebook ejection lever.

  • 4) Plug the power cable from the speakers into a power outlet if needed. Battery-powered speakers will not require this. Turn on the speakers following the manufacturer's instructions.

  • 5) Open your preferred music or audio software (such as Windows Media Player or iTunes) on your Dell Latitude notebook and play an audio file to hear the newly-attached speakers.

    It can be intimidating when looking at a huge mass of wires and stuff, but not to worry, it may be a little time consuming, but is is all logical.
    First set the monitor on the desk and plug it in to the wall. then take the second cable that has a million little prongs sticking out of the retangular plug and hang it to where the Case is going to sit. Put the case where you want it close to or on the desk. look at the back of the case, the cable that is coming from the monitor can only fit 1 socket in the back of the pc.
    Now, 10% done!!! that wasn't hard!
    Now put the mouse and keyboard on the desk and thread the cords through the back of the desk to the pc. Usually, the pc has two sockets right next to each other right on the top of the case in back, that are round and the size of a dime. That is where the keyboard and mouse plug in. Look at the back of the pc for color coding of plug color to socket color or look for pictures of which cable goes in which socket.
    Ok, now find the big thick black cable that plugs into the wall and ends in a big thick square. Plug it into the power supply of the pc. It only fits one place.
    Plug it into the wall now.
    Now all you should have is speakers and a printer.
    Look at the speakers, Depending if they are standard, or 5.1 dolby surround, they either have 1 or 3 plugs that go into the pc. Plug the speakers into the wall, then look at the back of the pc for 3 small holes. one should be labled, speakers. There is line in and microphone as well. plug in the speakers...... ,
    Ok, printer, funky thick plug, or usb cable..... Either one, look at the back of the pc, it only goes in one spot!!

    Now, you need to plug in the internet stuff. plug the router to the walll, connect to phone line or cable, then plug in the cable that looks like a big (usually yellow) phone cable. Plug it into the network card plug on the back of the pc.

    Surf, have fun.
    Good luck and have fun.

    Green light next to power button stays on - no response from computer, totally frozen for up to 12 hrs, then green light goes off, computer suddenly comes on for 5-10 min then freezes again.

    Good day sir, hi, You need a thorough check on your PC.
    But first try testing the Motherboard, Processor and Memory module.

    As this point you need a friend, that knows how to tinker with your PC

    Or you may need to do this.

    1. memory testing:
    Try replacing a new memory ram module on your PC, get the modules out of the memory slot, and let it be tested on another PC. if good,

    2. power supply
    Test for the power supply box, remove the 20/24 pin power connector from the mainboard and short the green and any black wire, your fan should blow out air.

    3. Test for motherboard.
    remove all coonections from the motherboard, except the 20/24 pin power connector, and the 12v 4-pin molex power connector, connect the pc speaker or the thumb speaker on the speaker port, connect a keyboard, clear the CMOS, (or remove the battery temporarily), connect the header panel (power switch, reset, power led) place the processor and memory (the tested good one). power on.

    You should hear a beep (good) The keyboard will light up the three leds, then a few seconds, the numlock led.

    If you hear 1 long and 2 or 3 short beeps, problem with the display section. Reseat any graphics card. test again.

    If you hear continous beeps, reseat the memory, if the beeping persist, replace your motherboard.

    If you hear nothing? only fan blowing, replace your motherboard.

    I can only give you instructions, you need a someone who knows how to service a PC.

    My keyboard is corrupt

    If your Keyboard is corrupted then you need to replace with it by another keyboard. Until then you can use Desktop Keyboard. To use Desktop Keyboard Go to START -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> Click on On-Screen Keyboard.
