Inspire P7800 Speaker System, no sound

My computer has been boxed up for about a year and I am getting it all set up again. I am unable to get my speakers to work. I don't think it's the sound card. I have the Inspire P7800 (7.1 Speakers) with the Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card. My operating system is windows XP. I have tripple checked everything and all wiring is correct. I just get no sound. I knlow I'm missing something but not sure what.

    I did all that and it should be working but it's not. I plugged in my laptop as the external device to check the speakers themselves and got no sound that way either. The sound card itself is recognized by my computer and the device manager says it is wrorking properly. I've done every troubleshooter I've got and can't figure it out. I'v tried going through Creative Labs' website for support but their website keeps giving me error messages so I gave up there and they have no phone number you can call so I guess I'm buying new sound card and speakers. Thanks for trying to help.

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 have an audio system Creative Inspire p7800 and i can't find the cd to install it. I only have audio in 2 speakers. I want 5.1


actually two speakers are working because you are connecting the audio input cable to built in on board sound card jacks.
if you want 5.1 you have to connect the 5.1 sound card

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work


Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!

Volume Control Unit has gone bad


The volume control is nothing more than small complicated rheostat.
If you don't know electronics take it to a radio repair shop. Just tell the repair guy to build you a new one using the old cord. That is if the cord is not what is bad! Take the entire unit with you. For a trained repair man it should be a easy thing to rebuild. I own a P7800 and if the control unit should break that is just what I would do.

No sound when playing dvd from speaker system


I recommend going to the sound icon on bottom of main screen, right click, go to the properties and settings. Make sure the system is set for the same amount of speakers as you have. You can also use the test button and see if the settings are correct.
Make sure you are using the correct audio decoder or ac3 filter

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.
