Well, you have to : depending on the model of your Sound Card, I presume SBlive? or Audigy models, refer to the manual, but, you have too, depending on the speakers model, place the cables according (ussualy) for the colors. green , black, orange on the respective places. test as you move the cables.
good Luck

Want to connect JBL platunum series speakers to Dell Inspiron 560 with Windows 7. There is no sound coming from theses speakers on this system. They worked with HP compac.

Hello there,

here is the sound card for the DELL
Sound Card Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio up to Creative SoundBlaster® X-Fi Xtreme Audio (D)†

that means you have a sound card and the port should be in the back and should be green.

Audio front panel - one headphone and one
microphone connector

This is for a headset .

Here is what i would try make sure the speakers are powering by turning on the right speaker the LED should light up if it is then it has power, Next i would try the back of the PC speaker port , if you have everything connected correctly we move onto the next step.

Ok go to
Control panel
Hardware and sound
then click on the green sound link that should pop up a window to configure the speakers, you should see the devices in the list and be able to configure them if you do not let me know and i can help you with the next step.

thank you don't forget to Rate

its not the speakers. it may be that your sound card driver is not installed so try downloading the drivers from the laptop support site and then try connecting your speakers.

Can i use my boston 5.1 speakers with a powered sub with my new computer used soundblaster software?

The speakers themselves don't care what you have them connected to. They just take an audio input from the computer, which is a function of the computer's sound card and drivers. As long as the computer hardware is working properly, the speakers will too.

There is one possible problem, though. If these speakers came with your computer as part of a Gateway system package several years ago, they may be a digital-input version only. Gateway supplied these speakers and a Creative Soundblaster card that had a digital output was installed in the computer. The way to tell on your speakers is to look at the plug on the end of the cable. Which of the two below looks like yours?


If it's the one on the left, you can use the speakers with any analog sound source (computer, iPod, etc.). But if looks like the one on the right (a mono plug), you have the digital speakers. Unless the sound card in your new computer has digital output available, the speakers won't work. In the past, I was able to put the original sound card and drivers into someone's new computer and it worked, but the original software is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7.

Hope this helps you get it figured out. Thanks for using Fixya!

My Boston BA735 system does not work on new computer

Your sound card must have a digital output plug, which is generally yellow and says DIGITAL OUT. As far as I know its not digital-out with software but digital-out with hardware only. Find a picture of a SoundBlaster Live model number ct4780 and see that it has 5 plugs plus a joystick connection. On this particular card the yellow is the DIGITAL OUT plug.

Ive got creative inspire T7900 7.1 speaker system attached to my of the speaker connections in sub-woofer is faulty ? the sub-woofer seems to be a sealed unit so cant take panel off to have a look...

Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?

If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one

If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up

there are no drivers for the speakers, you need an audio driver installed for you sound card.

Your system will either have an on-board sound card (Sigmatel normally) or a soundblaster expansion audio card. (If the audio jacks are in an expansion slot below the video card, then you have a soundblaster.

Soundblaster drivers are found at
