Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?

I purchased the speakers in 2001 with a gateway desktop. I tried to plug them into the laptop using the microphone jack and have no sound.

We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

Won't work with new computer


I would suggest going to START>Control Panel>Sound HQ(or something similar, like Sounds and Audio Devices etc). From this point youll want to make sure, under the Sounds or Output tab, that your Boston Acoustics are selected. If theyre not listed, try to pick whatever it is your plugging into(Say a jack thats on the computer, look for something like "Internal Port" or "Dell Ports" for your computer name.) Please PM or send me an email if the problem persists

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.


Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

All you need to do is download and install the Vista drivers from Boston Acoustic. You should then be all set. Hope this helps.

Boston BA735 Digital Speakers Dont Work on new Dell computer


You can try to install the sound card--Vista should pick it up, but you'll still probably have to have a driver disk for it.

Make sure that you not only power it down, but you unplug the power cord and press the on button to discharge any stored charge.

When you insert the card, be sure that you'v touched off on either the powersupply or the frame to the hand that has the card in it. Then insert the card. (A static electricity spark can be 20k volts, low amps, but it can destroy both the card and the motherboard if you aren't careful.)

The XP driver might be a problem, but check for the numbers on the card before putting it in and do a search. You may find some additional Vista drivers.

There are a couple of after-market cards that use a digital out, you just have to look for the right connector.

Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16 bit/44.1khz speakers


Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Dell laptops come with a proprietery s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.

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.

No sound from speakers


If you buy a 1/8 - 1/8 male on each end of cord and plug it into your stereo headset plug on your computer (probably the front of tower) and the other end to the analog in on the back of your ba735 will work great....... Good Luck,
