Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers
I've had my Dell 5650 5.1 system for about 2 yrs now and now it started giving up. I was playing a videogame yesterday and i noticed that the sound from the front left and right speakers is very low and i can barely hear it. I tried adjusting the volume of the single speakers and installing the drivers but still no difference. The other speakers work perfectly and are loud but from those i cant hear anyting almost. Does anyone have the same problem and have a solution? thank you
Sounds like my problem almost exactly... I had to rip my sub-woofer apart and found out it was really bad wiring. Get to soldering if you can and replace the wires like I will have to do one day. *sigh*
The only think I'm looking for is a wiring diagram for inside the sub-woofer. Poking around online you can range from $35ish to $75ish. Depends on if you want to get your hands dirty or not. My origianl post was

This is going to have to be a solution in the works...so don't rate until we have some kind of end-result.
Connect the speakers to a different device such as an MP3 player or a Nintendo DS. See if the speakers still cease to work. If they work just fine with a different device, then consider that it may not be the speakers...but a problem with the sound system in your PC.
Perhaps the sound configuration in Windows is disrupted. Perhaps the driver settings for your soundcard in your PC are corrupted. (A complete reinstallation of Windows with a fresh installation of the sound drivers would probably prove this theory right or wrong.)
Perhaps there is a problem with the FRONT CHANNEL hole on the sound system on the rear of your PC. You could check that by plugging the REAR channel of the speakers into the FRONT channel on the PC.
And lastly...there could be a break or a short in the cable of the speakers. You could always test another set of speakers with each sound channel and see if that might be the possible issue.
If the sound card in the PC turns out to be the problem, then install a different sound card. If the soundcard in your PC is currently the onboard one, then disable it in the BIOS before installing the new card.
Let us hear the results before we do any rating. Unless of course you're able to fix it with the data given. :)
