Note if you are just connecting standard stereo speakers (2.0 or 2.1) you will just connect them to the green port. In adddtion if the speakers are 4.0 or 4.1 you would connect the rear speakers into the black port.

In regards to 5.1 speakers you would hook up the above listed connections and then connect the center and sub speakers to the orange port. The picture below shows the ring assignments for the center and sub-woofer connection if you are not using computer speakers.

For the 7.1 configuration you would hook up the above listed connection and then you would connect your side speakers to the white port. Note the side speakers are left/right speakers so the ring assignment is a standard setup with tip being left and the second ring being right.

Do the cables from the old drive match up with the new one? If so and they connect then, yes its compatible.

Old speakers will not work with new Dell Inspiron 530


Speakers are pretty much universal. Plug them in, and connect the audio cable to the green receptacle on the computer.

I got this dell inspiron 531 were do you plug your printer into?


If you have a PARALLEL cabled printer, You need the same sized port on your PC.
Most newer PCs no longer have serial ports, as they are antiquated and slow method of communication.

There are adapters however, if you have a smaller SERIAL port.
And ones that are USB - or a combo one like the following....

My 812c (older) has a parallel cable and usb cable. Look for the Mini USB on the back of the printer, and all you would need is a cable like this - TYPE A to TYPE B
