Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers
Hi all, when i plug in all three cables into my computer, sound is only coming out from the subwoofer and centre speaker (the orange cable). Can any one help me as to why this is the case when it was fine before my computer died and i had to reformat it? thanks in advance!
Go to start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices. in the volume tab, speaker settings area click advance. make sure the speaker setup is 5.1 .if not, select 5.1 and click ok. now cilck advance in device volume area. u should c a volume slider for rear and front speakers. if u dont c the volube slider, click options->properties.in the show the volume controls section put tick on the rear and front boxes. clik ok. and check weather they are not mute and increase the rear and fron volume to a decent lavel. there may be also sound card specifi settings that might need to be re-configured if this does not work let me know the name and model of ur sound card. Good Luck Julian Leonardo

I had the same problem, most of the time it's just a fawlty connections. Make sure all the cables in the back are in, try turning them around in their sockets, the same with the jacks to your computer, it sometimes works for me!

Tips for a great answer:
1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.
2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.
3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.
4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.
5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.
6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.
7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.
8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.
9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.
10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...
hope this will help you solve your problem.
