Sounds like you just need to enable all the channels in your sound control panel. In Vista this can be done by right click on the speaker icon and going to the properties of your sound card. If you have software installed specific to your sound card go into that software and there will definitely be a setting / question regarding how many speakers you are using. By default it will only use the green channel.

    Ok, when you say you set the speaker setup to 5.1 you are referring to the sounds and audio devices portion of the control panel correct? If that's the case then the software specific to your sound card is overwriting those settings. Do you know what model sound card you have?

    Ok, the audigy is a great card. Now you say you checked for the latest drivers for the card, I'm sure there were newer ones then what came with the CD, did you install the ones from soundblaster.com? It should have installed something called the "creative control panel" or something along these lines. Usually it will put it in the system tray (down by the time in the bottom right hand corner). This will almost ALWAYS overwrite the settings you assign in sound and audio devices...

    I'm sure you have this software running somewhere on the machine (at least you should if you installed the creative software), if you can't find it you may need to reinstall it. Check under Start, Program, Creative (or sound blaster... look around for anything like that) and see if you can locate it. The settings are in there for certain.

    Definitely grab the latest drivers, with them there is a new creative control panel, if you have the 5.1 enabled in there you should be good to go. I have that exact same card and I also use 5.1 speakers...

    Oh also, in the creative control panel there is a button to "test speakers" and it will play a sound out of all 5.1 channels to test them... that can help you verify they are working properly.

How do I connect a Logitech z506 surround sound system to an LG 50LS4000 TV


It will never fit because that surround system was made for an audio card for desktop computer. Green is main, tan is surround and black is bass or woofer. There hasn't being any adapter yet for this type of configuration, sorry.

I checked Logitech's website and they don;t have any downloadable documentation for this product. Anyway, let's just try and fix it.

First, make sure your left and right speakers are connected properly to the bass speaker.

Next, the wire from the bass should be connected to your soundcard's line out port (light green) or into your TV's audio lineout.

You can also adjust the volume of your bass separately on the right speaker.

Update me if this worked or if you are still having trouble.

Thanks for using Fixya!

PINK -- if you have a microphone, connect it here

GREEN -- if you have a headset, or you have external speakers, connect it here,
to get 2-channel stereo output ("left" and "right").

BLUE -- if you have an iPod (or iPod Touch), or audio-cassette player, and you want to feed the "audio-output" from those devices into a program that will record the sound on the "line-input" port on your computer, then you need to connect this port.

Since your new motherboard does not support 5.1 audio-output, you need to purchase a sound-card that has GREEN and PINK and ORANGE and BLACK sockets, so that you can get sound into the "middle" and "back-left" and "back-right" speakers.

Or, just connect the GREEN, to use your speakers in two-channel mode.

You'll also need to access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, to download the correct device-drivers for the audio-hardware embedded onto the new motherboard, in order to get _ANY_ output out of your sound-card.

Speakers not working


The black/green/orange connectors go into the corresponding color ports in the back of the computer, but you computer have to be able to support 7.1 or at least 5.1 audio. If it can't you can buy a separate sound card from Creative that does.

How can i plug in my logi tech speakers on my new dell computer,


  1. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.

The blue is for a audio in and pink is the mic. Green is the audio out.
You will need to buy a new video card that has all 4-5 colors (green,,black,orange,blue,pink,white)
That way you can plug in all your connections and it'll work correctly.

Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting. Go here to get an operations manual for this setup. http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/fattach_get.php?p_sid=d*11Q7xi&p_accessibility=0&p_tbl=9&p_id=2924&p_created=1126107772&p_olh=0 Good Luck
