What do I need to purchase to use these speakers with my new HP HPE-137c PC (was originally used with a Gateway PC)?

My clarification request was supposed to be a solution. I thought I'd clickedt the right place but maybe not. I see the link I included also didn't work. So let's try it again. You need a PCI sound card like this one which has both analog and digital outputs. Enable the digital output and you'll be able to keep using those BA speakers.

Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital BA735 speakers using XP. Upgrade computer to a N68PV-GS motherboard and have analog output for the speakers. How to I get the old speakers to work?

You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

I purchased a new Gateway. I can faintly hear the

Other than setting the volume controls in the software, make sure you plugged the speakers into the proper jack. Sometimes there are several output jacks, there may be a line out as well as an amplified out. If the speakers are not amplified, and there is an amplified out jack, try that one.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?

Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?

We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

First, make sure the speakers are plugged into the center green connector.

Second, go to Gateway's website and download the latest audio drivers for your system and reinstall them. That should do it.

Boston Acoustics Computer Speakers no sound

This speaker system requires a digital audio input, which most older systems don't have. The sound card that was built into your Gateway can put out either a digital or analog signal depending on how you have it set. Chances are your new sound card might be able to output in digital mode as well, but you may have to turn it on manually. Try double-clicking your volume icon in your system tray, then click the "advanced" button at the bottom left. This should bring up a window that lets you adjust the treble and bass, but it should also give you an "other options" area that lets you turn on digital output. If your new card supports digital output, the option should be there. If the card does not support it, you will have to use a different card. I hope this helps.
