Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Sound not working for certain games

Just installed the x-540 5.1 speakers... wouldnt work, but turned on onbaord audio in the bios and it works now. currently play COD:4 and the sound works fairly well, but i can't hear the sounds coming from myself ?? (footsteps, shots, etc). i hear everyone else just fine. Also the second game i tried, an older game, Close Combat 5: Invasion Normandy... the sound does not work at all. the game settings appear to be fine.. is this a problem with the speakers/sound card? i have a realtek hd audio controller

Re: Sound not working for certain games

First. If the sound is working but you are experiencing problems with some sounds? its either the way the game is or its a program specific problem. Because the other game doesnt work I would recommend updating the audio drivers. If you provide specs on the Motherboard (make & model #) I could help you find them.

Hope this helps.

No sound from X-540 speakers

are you getting power out of the speakers? tried them elsewhere? maybe the port burned out on the board and an audio card maybe needed. try an audio card and see if that works and return to best buy (if you have one near you) if thats not the problem. you can try to reset your motherboard to default values? if the computer shows your drivers working properly then maybe its the speakers. ive seen tht happen to good speakers. its a bummer deal!

How do I connect my Logitech X-540 speaker to my laptop an

I just opened my Realtek HD Audio settings and clicked on 5.1 sound.. then assigned the different ports.
Make sure you have the latest audio driver update for your soundcard, and go through the software options, it'll be there somewhere..
If you think you might have a RealTek soundcard, you can find newest Realtek HD audio drivers here:

Has XP support too. Install and reboot, then the 'red' realtek volume icon should appear in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
You'll find the settings manager in there.

Good Luck

I have a x-540 speaker system I brought today. Do I need a sound card to make it work with my pc. I hook it up/no sound.

A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed

5.1 surround not working

I uninstalled the previous audio software that the computer had. (Realtek HD audio) and turned off the onboard sound card in the BIOS settings. Then I went back and uninstalled all the new audio software and reinstalled it with all antivirus programs turned off. The main trick was to make sure that the matrix is turned off. If it is on it will play sound from all the speakers at once as if it were mono. Turning it off after changing the BIOS and uninstalling the old software and reinstalling the new allowed it to work properly. I hope this helps.

Plugged to computer

yes you can it has an audo cable that plugs right into your laptop. Depending on your sound car in your laptop, you might get 2 of the speakers working, because your audio card might not support audio 5.1. Which means, you have 5 speakers, but your audio card might only supprt 2 speakers, because its a 2.1 which is standard in a lot of laptops.
