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 system.it 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.

Driver


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

http://support.dell.com

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 http://www.creative.com

Can i use 4.1 speakers for my hcl p2102 laptop?


Hi,
U can use 4.1 speakers with HCL P2102 by connecting stereo pin splitter in Line out and then connecting front and rear spkers.

But U will not get 4.1 surround sound effect as sound card supports 2.1 spkers only, so it is advisable to connect good 2.1 spkers.
