Just installed dell 5650 5.1 speakers. However they do not work. Connections are good and I can hear a low level hum that increases as I turn up the volume. Settings are on at every aspect of my dell deminsion E510. The sound was fine with just the normal 2 speaker setup but now I am stumped.
Thanks for your help!

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems hope this helps
If you are using Sound Blaster, go into "All Programs" and open the "Creative File" and then the "Audio Console", left click the "CMSS 3D" tab, under the "CMSS Modes" click on the selection box and select "CMSS". They should start working at once.
the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound
my friends dental work in her mouth enabled her to hear music through her head due to the dissimilar metals in the dental work. I have heard mixed reviews for dell speaker sets which may or may NOT be actual dell equipment, you can try opening the amp box and lining it with tin foil, that may help, if its under warranty send it back. In the auto industry something like this would be called a monday(hangover) production, whereas something produced mid week would be of much higher fit and finish. ridiculous but that kind of stuff still happens..
