Go to the bottom of your toolbar on the right there is a little icon with a speaker. Right click on that and choose Playback Devices and choose what speakers you want by right clicking and enabling them. Thanks!

Connect my BA7800 to my laptop that only has a headphone jack


As you stated in your question there are 3 3.5mm headphone jacks connected to the speakers. Green is for headphones, red is for microphone, and black is probably just a line in connector.

plug the green connector from the speakers into your headphone port on your laptop and it should work.

because the speakers are self powered and have a few adjustment knobs on them, you will have to tinker with the volume coming from the laptop and from the speakers, so you don't have distorted, scratchy sound from the speakers when playing music at loud levels.

my suggestions is turn the laptop volume down to a quater of the volume and then turn the speakers up, let the speakers do the hard work and not the laptop..

Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.


    Thanks for rating

    Good luck

    There is no sound. I have connected it to my new Toshiba laptop


    Hello there,

    When you plugged it into your laptop, turned it on and increase the volume, do you hear only a humming sound from the speakers? Try to plug the speaker to an mp3 player as well to test if it still doesnt give out any sound. If it still doesnt, then your speaker must have a wiring connection problem inside that needs resoldering. Here I supposed that your laptop's internal speakers is working and is able to work with other audio devices like a headset or an earphone.

    I just bought a new Win7 laptop and plugged in my ACS 295 speakers into the headset port and it does not work.


    Hi

    Do your sounds work without the speakers connected to the laptop?

    So the first suspicion is have you connected the speakers together correctly.

    Did the speakers work on another machine?

    Do I suspect correctly that the two speakers /satellites are connected to the sub woofer and the sub is connected to your pc with one plug.

    That should be as simple as that, just make sure its turned on and volume aswell.

    now does the laptop react to the speakers in anyway?

    Are you plugging into the 'LINE' output, and not the 'SPEAKER' output. The speaker output should turn off the local speakers (green jack).
