Question about Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers
Only the left rear speaker is working. I am also having trouble with the front right speaker connections at the subwoofer. It cannot be fully inserted, and must be carefully inserted in a touchy position. Any suggestions on getting all four speakers to working again.
FIRSTLY STIP ALL WIRES ABOUT 1/4 INCH.
Shove wire in speaker input as far as possible.
Make sure no other wires are touching each other and make sure there is no bare wires showing.
Then on your computer, go to the little sound icon in the bottom right screen, right-click on it, select playback options or devices.
Make sure you have selected the right amount of speakers you have. You can use the test button to make sure they are all working.
Let me know how this goes so I can further help you from there

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.
