I've had trouble with one set of speakers not working, after some connection issues think I have that right. The PC was jammed against the desk bending the jacks. Consequently pulling out the jacks things were misplaced. Ins to outs, etc. I still have nothing on my woofer output. I'm not sure if something else needs plugged into my sound card. I have a PC connector that is vacant there. I do have a problem with one set of speakers...the volume is loud as soon as it is turned on. In my settings the speaker volumes are set the same and at the 5.1 surround sound option.

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems hope this helps
This is Creative's support link. The speakers you have are Dell. Do you have a sound card installed? If you have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of screen, does it have a red X? Right click on it then, click on playback devices. A window should open with your device. Does anything show up and if it does does it show it "working"? Right click on it and a window should open and you should see "enable" or "disable", if it shows enable, click on that and exit. If you are still ahving problems with this let me know at "add a comment"
the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound
the surround sound speakers connect to the computer by way of three connectors. the system should have come with an adapter that plugs all three connectors into one green connector. if you color match that green connector into the computer you should get sound out of the central and rear speakers. not sure if the surround sound will work correctly for movies, but you should get sound
As I understand it, this adapter is used ONLY to adapt a standard 2-channel stereo output to the 3, 1/8" plugs of the Dell 5650 5.1 system. These 3 plugs would normally plug into the front, rear, and center/sub outputs on a computer designed to output 5.1 channel sound.
To make this clear, what this means is that the output you get from your 2-channel stereo system, using this adapter with the Dell 5650 5.1 system, will NOT be full 5.1 surround sound...it will be 2-channel stereo signals intermixed so that it plays from the 5650 system through the Dell amplifiers and speakers...nothing more.
This cannot be over-emphasized. The adapter does NOT create true 5.1 sound from a 2-channel stereo output system.
If you are hoping to get true 5.1 output from a 2-channel stereo system, you will be disappointed.
All this adapter likely does is split/mix some of the 2-channel signal into the rear channel, and split/mix some of the SAME 2-channel signal into the center-sub channel, just so you will get some output from those speakers. There may be some low-pass filtering for the sub-woofer input.
It is almost certainly a very simple passive circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and possibly an audio transformer or two.
Look for circuit on Do-It-Yourself electronic sites and build it yourself...or you're almost certain to be ripped-off.
This is going to have to be a solution in the works...so don't rate until we have some kind of end-result.
Connect the speakers to a different device such as an MP3 player or a Nintendo DS. See if the speakers still cease to work. If they work just fine with a different device, then consider that it may not be the speakers...but a problem with the sound system in your PC.
Perhaps the sound configuration in Windows is disrupted. Perhaps the driver settings for your soundcard in your PC are corrupted. (A complete reinstallation of Windows with a fresh installation of the sound drivers would probably prove this theory right or wrong.)
Perhaps there is a problem with the FRONT CHANNEL hole on the sound system on the rear of your PC. You could check that by plugging the REAR channel of the speakers into the FRONT channel on the PC.
And lastly...there could be a break or a short in the cable of the speakers. You could always test another set of speakers with each sound channel and see if that might be the possible issue.
If the sound card in the PC turns out to be the problem, then install a different sound card. If the soundcard in your PC is currently the onboard one, then disable it in the BIOS before installing the new card.
Let us hear the results before we do any rating. Unless of course you're able to fix it with the data given. :)
Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.
