Hello there!! jlee432
The 4.1 speakers you has, and output sound , depend on the sound card you has on your laptop. If you has inside the laptop a sound card 5.1 you whould not have problems get it sound, BUT you have to set on multimedia and sound for 4.1 according.
you only have one output sound on your laptop, so you have to use 2 speakers or buy a splitter and get 2 speakers sound.
you also, can buy a pcmcia sound card, 5.1 from creative labs, to solve this. but check if your speakers of course sound of.
good luck

It is unlikely that this is a problem with your speakers more likely that it is a problem with the DVD player itself. I would recomend trying another DVD player.

SOURCE: Altec Lansing ada745 fuse

Yes, it's a 1A 250V glass fuse, 0.75" (1.9cm) long. The only other number on the fuse is "239", if that means anything. You take it out by putting a flat screwdriver in the slot on the fuse holder cap, turn counter-clockwise, and pull out once it releases.

SOURCE: cannot connect my surround sound altec lansing system to my compu

Hello. I figured it out. You probably have a computer that only has one AUDIO OUT jack or headphone jack. Take the wire with the green plugs (1/4") and put one end in the AUX jack on the front of the Altec subwoofer and the other in your audio out or headphone jack. After turning on the power switch on the back of the Altec subwoofer, you'll see the green indicator light next to the AUX jack on the subwoofer blink and then come on steadily. YOU MUST HIT THE AUX BUTTON on the remote control, or you won't hear anything. (Make sure your PC's audio is set to line out, if it doesn't recognize the speakers automatically.) This is the same way you hook up an MP3 player or portable CD player, etc.

How do you connect the altec lansing ada 890 speakers to a flat panel HD TV


You can use the audio output RCA outputs to connect to the speakers. You need to use a multi- connector to match the input of the Altec. You can get the mating connectors to the headphone to RCA which can be connected to the Audio outputs. Also you can use a network to match the input impedance, use a simple reisitive network.

Only one speaker works - altec lansing computer speakers ADA215


The solution is actually quite simple, due to a design flaw. Altec lansing designed a rather cheap mini din plug-in which can either be replaced or repaired depending on your skill and patience level. Your ground contact is fine BUT the positive contact is not making connection due to the fact that the plastic housing has broken away and pulled the contact with it. This can be super glued back into place or just replaced with a new mono minidin plug-in.

I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

Connecting an Altec Lansing ADA995 subwoofer system to a stereo


I have this exact Altec Lansing speaker system and I'm currently just using it with my Dell computer. But, I know you don't have to install these speakers to any high powered receiver for good sound quality. The subwoofer has two separate 200 watt RMS combined amplifiers built in for it's single knob controlled dual 6.5" bass drivers and 2-way magnetically shielded satellites, which are amplified together by any source that has an analog or digital volume control. The speakers act as a preamp receiver to any volume or frequency tone level controlled audio source. These input sources can also equalize the speakers receiving input signal for bass, treble or mid-range adjustments. You only need to obtain the proper adapter to hook up all the speakers to your desired component or device. Besides a computer, for example a TV with a variable audio out function or a mp3 player will work. The adapter that i am referring to is similar to what is included with certain 5.1 Logitech brand computer and multimedia speakers specifying gaming console and TV connecting. It has all three color coded 1/8" connector inputs on one end and RCA jack outputs on the other. This can be purchased more easily online then offline at stores such as Ebay for a fairly inexpensive price. However this adapter will not decode true 5.1 surround, but instead give a 5 channel stereo effect. I guess if one was looking for an inexpensive alternative solution to purchasing traditional high end home entertainment audio equipment, the ADA 995s are one of few computer speaker models in my book that can do a decent job.

Hooking 5.1 computer speakers to a Samsung Plasma


Computer speakers are powered, they have their own amps inside the speaker cabinet.

To get these to work on a TV you need to plug them into a headphone out jack.

The external speaker terminals produce too hot a signal for powered computer speakers. The amp in the speakers may have already been damaged.

How to hook my altec lansing speakers to my TV? and my laptop @ the same time


You can do this through a receiver (like a stereo receiver). Hook the tv up to line 1 and the computer up to line 2, then hook the stereo receiver output to the input of your subwoofer. Then shift the receiver from line 1 to line 2 (as easy as pressing a button on the front of the receiver) to hear either one through your speakers.
