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?

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.

Audio drivers for optiplex dell pentium 3


Dell doesn't have Windows XP drivers on their site. Apparently these shipped with one about 5 different devices, none of which have drivers for Win XP.
I think I would recommend replacing the sound card with a more recent one. You could try using the Windows 2000 drivers, but this is kind of a hinky fix, and it may or may not work. If you want to try this option the driver is here:

You can find (on ebay, etc.) sound cards that would work fine in the $10-15 range easily.

No sound on my pc


Go to Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices
Ensure that sound card is the default playback and default recording device.
Also, if this is a Dimension 5100, then there is a possibility that the system has a upgrade sound card installed in a PCI expansion slot (Below the video card)
If the system has an expansion card, (Soundblaster) then the integrated on-board audio should be disabled in the BIOS (If integrated is on and an expansion card is installed, you get a conflict and no sound) Normally, if the system has an expansion card, the ports are covered with a black plastic cover. If the BIOS defaults are ever reset, then onboard audio needs to be disabled again.

Fried mobo with new psu?


Yes, it sounds like the motherboard from the Dell machine is now ready for the recycle yard. My son had an old Dell that the motherboard failed, and one by one, all add on cards, and eventually the RAM stopped working. Those old Dell systems can only keep going for so long, and besides, why hang on to it? Get a new PC, they are low priced now, and you get such a faster, smoother running PC.

Dell Dimension 4600 creative sound blaster card


It sounds like you may have broken your sound card. I had the same problem when I tried to digitise my old 4-track recordings. 
I tried the broken card in another PC, found that it was not working, so I went out and bought a new sound card.

My monitor says there is no signal from my new Dell Studio


Try reseating the video card in your new computer. Sounds like it may not be seating in the slot properly. Take it out and put it back in with the power off and then hook everything back up and then see if you get video,.

Motherboard sound and old speakers


what really matters is the quality of the usb speakers. check specifications such as wattage first and find reviews if possible. however usb speakers will probably not come close to separate speakers. i'd recommend buying a cheap sound card ($20 or so). these work great overall. $20 spent on a sound card will be a better trade off than $20 spent on speakers. just use your old speakers with the new sound card and you'll have plenty of power. after this i'd recommend headphones as they work great in this case. finally moving the sound card would probably work fine, but i have doubts.

hopefully that helped
