Re: cannot figure out how to hook up speakers external on...
Please check if you have drivers installed for your sound device and if your sound device is working fine. please try following steps, go to start--run--type devmgmt.msc--device manager window will open-- check if u see any yellow mark in front of sound devices
even if you dont see any yellow mark. please go on drivers and download page on hp website. please put your model number in there. If you need any help please let me know i can send you the link for this. download sound device drivers. most of the time HP use realtek ac97 or realtek high defination drivers. it could be different one too. if you are unable to get it from HP website you can download it from realtek.com too
last step : if other steps does't work :
go to start--run--type services.msc ---go to window audio -- if service is stopped for some reason please start it manually by pressing start

Try to use earphones, plug them in to phone audio connector....
try if it works..... if so, disconnect them and plug speakers.... and try again.... if doesn't work, go to audio advanced setup and check if speakers are not muted, or set up voicevolume level is too low. Play with that setup....
Also some computers can turn on or off speakers in Bios.
If problem will not be solved, try to use USB speakers
I have had this problem with my hp as well. Its a problem with the video drivers. The best solution is to go to the hp support website and update your video drivers to the latest version. If that doesn't work you should try a new hdmi cable. And if all else fails you can configure your audio to a different channel, like the speakers on your laptop or you can hook up some external speakers as well.
Elaborate a bit on what you're trying to do if this doesn't work for you.
This unit has Pre Outs near the center of the rear panel for all audio channels which will allow you to use external amplification for any speakers you wish to use and the receiver will still control the volume.
See #12 on page 10 of the manual. Try retrevo.com
Just run RCA cable(s) from the desired Pre-Out jack to the input(s) on the external amp with its speaker(s) attached. Set the external amp's volume (if it has one) to very high, then leave it alone. Run through the Yamaha's speaker location and volume settings to level-match the external speakers to the rest.
If you want to simultaneously use the Yamaha-attached speakers for the same channels as the external amp you'll have to match the like channel volumes to each other using a volume control on your external amp, then level-match them as a unit to the other channels.
Are you using a Mixer as a pre-amp for this set-up? For example, I have a Numark CM200 where I have all of the inputs and outputs I need to run. DJ IO is connected to Chanel 1 and Chanel 2 Lines in my mixer. The DJ IO is conected to my computer by USB cable. In Traktor souncard settings chanel 1 is set to (3&4) Chanel 2 (2&1) also, devise set up is Numark DJ IO and in External mode. Of course the mixer is conected to my amp and speakers conected to the amp as well.
In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.
You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.
go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.
