Question about Creative Labs FourPointSurround FPS1600 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Connecting creative labs fps 1600 sound system to laptop. How?

Hi all
I have been bought an Acer Aspire 9920 laptop. My question is, how do I connect my original fps1600 sound system to the laptop considering the only sound output socket is one 3.5mm female stereo socket marked up as headphones, and my fps1600 has 2 male 3.5 stereo plugs connected. I may well consider replacing the speaker system at a later date due to its age. Don't wanna blow my new laptop up though. I'm just unsure. Your help would be most welcome, or recommendations for a new speaker system taking ito consideration that I only listen to music and a bit of on-line gaming on laptop.

Thanks

Snowy

Hi, i recommend just using the headphone out, and it probably will not hurt the notebook, as it is not feeding back into the notebooks sound device. you may wish to do as i did, and get a creative labs external sound card. much improvement over the on-board high def sound built into my acer notebook.with all the connections you would want! as for speakers there are alot of models to pick from.i usually go with creative, but this time i went logitech- thx,dts,ect. and i am very happy. i hope this helps you make a decision on what do. good luck!glen

Audio problem on acer aspire one zg5 A150


Try installing the audio drivers again, this might resolve your problem unless you have a physical problem in your speaker.
Visit the following link and download the sound drivers again on your system. This would resolve your issue http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-AC-97-Audio-Driver-XP-W2K-W98-WDM-driver-VER-5-10-0-5554-zip/3000-2110_4-210198.html

Not enough jack


You need to buy an external sound card, without which you will not be able to get much from your speakers. It will not produce surround sound.

The sound card will give you required jacks and will produce real good sound. You may try audigy cards from creative.

Connecting Creative Gigaworks S750 computer speakers to panasonic plasma tv


This depends on the audio system setup designed on your television.

Most speakers can have adapters bought for them which will allow you to connect your speakers to a television. But not every TV will support the 7 speaker configuration with PC Speakers.

The good news is the adapters are fairly cheap at Radio Shack and should not set you back more then 10 bucks. Maybe even cheaper.
