Re: No sound output

Are you hooking up the headphone jack to the unit and not the ibook? When I hook inspire to my mac, the output comes from the unit, not the computer through the unit's headphone jack or the speaker output. Also make sure the volume is up and no channels are muted.

Inspire P7800 Speaker System, no sound

First thing is to check the device manager, to see if the audio device is working. Next is to check all the sound settings in XP.
Just to make sure, I'd suggest you also try plugging a headset or other speaker set to make sure it is not the speakers.
Detailed instructions for audio troubleshooting in XP are here.

Hope it works out.

I bought a creative (inspire M4500) 4.1 speaker system. but only 2 speakers work at a time.. do i need a 4 channel sound card. which one will be compatible with compaq presario V6000 laptops.

Obviously you require a 4.1 system audio/sound card for the best sound output since it has inbuilt amplifier and OS specific driver(latest) which you should get along with the sound card. If you are using, check compaitibility issues to with Vista....................sodeep

Need to get audio device back into computer

First you should check to see if the audio card is in the Device Manager. If not, try shutting down, unplugging power to PC open case (only if your comfortable doing so), physically remove the sound card and re-fasten it in the respective slot. Reconnect power and go into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS, get to the section of integrated peripherals, and disable the on-board audio. Save and exit, then let it boot up. If you get no "Found New Hardware", open the device manager and see if the card appears in the list. At this time if there is a question mark or an exclamation point, you have either a hardware conflict or an unknown device. If you don't have either of the symbols next to the audio card in the list, try opening your audio properties again and see if the card has returned to the software. If the device is not there, but is on the list in Device Manager, try re-installing the software it came with. If you have the other issues with the symbols and re-installing does not work, there may be something more than what may be the obvious.

Distorted sound after installing software plus GigaPocket issues

Have you physically disabled the onboard sound in the BIOS? By doing this I think most of your other hardware/software would default to the only audio device (your SB).

Post back if you've already done this and I'll see what else I can dig up on your hardware and possible conflicts.

Connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Phillips DVD 3256

moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.

HELP!!Setting up my Mbox1 as general sound output in my mac!!

I've had the same problem. I got it to work using Soundflower and LineIn.


After installing soundflower, it should show up like a virtual soundcard in your sound prefs. Send your audio output to the soundflower 'card' in sound prefs. Then use LineIn to route the outpout from soundflower to the Mbox like this:

Input from: Soundflower (2ch)
Output to: Digidesign HW ( Mbox )

i'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:
1. shut down computer
2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.

i hope this helps everyone else
