    I purchased from Dell two speakers that they use in their OptiPlex computers. There are four wires coming from the housing Red, Black, Green, and White. I thought I was purchasing just a speaker but after receiving them I see that there is an ampllifier circuit built on to the housing. I thought there may be a standard color code for the four wires so that I could take advantage of the attached amplifier. The whole unit is very compact and tracing the circuit is not possible. Dell did not publish any information that would help. The PCB did indicate it needed 5V power. On the controller board that these speakers would provide audio there is available 5v regulated supply and an audio out connection. Using the speaker preamp would save me much needed space on the controller board of my project.

My experience has been for this configuration, is that the red wire is your +5 volts, the green is right, the white is left, and the black is the ground for the supply and both speaker grounds. Hope this helps...accordianman

Dell Optiplex GX620 Desktop PC's south bridge IC heats up abnormally...

Check the capacitors on the motherboard, Dell had a BIG problem with faulty capacitors on the GX270, GX520, GX620, GX745 and GX755 units. The parts would cause the unit to either not boot at all or lockup booting or running programs. I would bet you have some that are just beginning to fail and the motherboard power is not stable which would mean the chips are not getting enough power. Here is a link to an article about the issue and what to look for on your board.

I hope this helps you out, if so please rate my solution.

I can listen to sound using my earphones on my Dell Optiplex GX520 but cannot hear anything through the internal speakers otherwise. How do I turn them on?

the internal speaker is only for beeps. These beeps are constant or short and only happen when the computer is trying to tell you how its about to die lol.

Buy some speakers. I would highly recommend a 2.1 system from logitech.

Dell optiplex gx620 is not switching on


Thank you for your query

The fault you are descrbing, sounds like a power fault please can you try thr following steps in order to resolve

1) Ensure that the fuse has not blown in the plug
2) Remove the 3 pin plug from the back of the PC, press and hold the power button in for approx 20 seconds (i know there is no power going to the PC), this is done to destat the PC
3)If the above fails then you most likely have blown the PSU on the PC

This will need to be repaired at a reputable PC Shop for replacement

Please leave positive feedback/vote if this has been useful
