Attaching stereo amp to Dell PC

I am trying to get my Stereo amp to work through my PC's sound card. It worked fine on my old PC but doesn't work on my new Dell. I have tried to attach the 3.5mm jack into all six coloured sockets but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Re: Attaching stereo amp to Dell PC

You might need to change to output setting on your sound card controller to a 2 speaker setup in stead of any other setting that it might be set to and make sure that you plug the jack into the green one. Also, you might want to turn the volume up on the outputs, in case it is set too low.

Can i hook up my PC to my sterio system through the headphone jack on the stereo to the PC HEadphone jack? been trying to get it to work on Auxilary but no sound :( please help

If you are still working on the question you asked about. This is what I would do. One of two things:

First: purchase an adapter that goes from your laptop 3.5 mm headphone jack to the microphone input if there is one.

Second: Would be to purchase what is called a "Cassette Tape Adapter". This will take your 3.5 mm headphone jack and play it through your cassette tape area of your stereo.

I hope one of these is a solution that will help you. -- wicc --

How do I find out what specs my sound card has? have a Dell lattitude 6400 and am considering buying software which requires Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 or equivalent sound card supporting 16-bit...

Your laptop has a High Definition integrated sound card which will do just fine for low-to mid end recording. You'll just need to hook up your audio source to the Microphone input on your laptop using a standard DIN plug, just like the one used for headphones. Usually the plug is a stereo input so you can have full stereo recording using the Microphone input.

If this was helpful and informative please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Laptop speakers not working

Hi you can try this:

From Start, go into Control Panel, then select Sounds, Speech & Audio devices, then Sounds and Audio Devices again.

On Volume tab, click on Advanced. Now choose Laptop stereo speakers. This may sort out the problem. Try the other options if they still don't work.
