Dell OptiPlex?? GX520 GX620 Internal Speaker code? Small speaker/amp, approx. 1 1/8 " dia. by 3/4" deep. Red, Blk, Grn, & Wht wires out of speakere housing. Built in amp on housing. Robert bob@trebor.net

    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

I have a CT5803 Dell Sound Card with 4 intermal pinsets, I need to hook Up speaker to speaker out and need information about its use!


16 bit sound cards usually have 3 pin out or jack on the card, one is line in, one is line out and one is for the mic.

the line out is used for your computer speakers, plug in the green colored jack from your speaker into the line out jack and you hear whatever your playing on your computer, ie: music TV or internet broadcasts. You may have to set up the device or software settings that you are using before it properly gets the sound to go through your speakers. Some compatible or Creative Labs emulator cards have five pin outs, these are for a more sophisticated sound system like 5.1 or higher. These jacks have 3 outgoing jacks. One for center speaker then one for front and one for rear. a 6.1 system card may have a side speaker out jack also.


The CT5803 is a Creative card that was made by Creative Labs for Dell, it typically has 3 jacks. one for your speakers to plug into one for your mic to plug into and one for you to plug into an inbound sound source **** as an MP3 player. If this is not what you are talking about please re post your question and possibly clarify the information that you are trying to obtain.

I have a dell computer that runs windows xp. im not a complete idiot but im not very computer savvy. I was messing around a few weeks ago trying to clean up my system from the previuos owners stuff . i...


Many Dell PCs have an internal speaker that will allow sounds and even music to play - it is just not as good as the external types that offer sub woofers and stereo sound. As long as you're hearing the familiar Windows Sounds and not simple beeps - your sound card drivers are probably ok.

This makes me think that you've either inserted the speaker plug into the wrong jack on the PC or have an issue with the speakers themselves. Generally, these jacks are color coded. If yours are, make sure that speakers are connected to the GREEN jack. If not color coded there should be an indication of an arrow pointing OUT or a speaker icon near the speaker jack. If still no luck, it is possible that the cord between the plug and the speakers has gotten pinched or broken. Try plugging a pair oh head phones into the jack - or plug the speakers into another device with a speaker jack. I'm pretty sure you'll get your answer after doing that. Some final thoughts: Maybe your speakers need power? Are they plugged in? Is the outlet powered? Is there a power indicator? Is the volume knob turned to minimum?

If you still have problems - provide the model number of your Dell PC and we can dig some more - but I think you'll find the problem if you follow the steps above.

I hope this was Very Helpful - and good luck!

My Dell Inspiron 6000 stopped playing sound. I uninstalled and reinstalled SigmaTel driver. This did not work.


Does it show that the device is working properly in the device manager? You could try and use system restore to roll back windows to a time when the sound was working. Windows may have updated software and caused problem with audio. If you roll back the system to a time when you know the sound was working then the on board audio may be defective. Have you tried plugging in headphones in the headphone jack and check if there is sound? Are the sound properties muted? The laptop speakers or internal amp may have stopped working also.

Went from a Dell Dimension 8250 to a Dell Optiplex GX280


Check for updated drivers and install if available. If that does not resolve the issue completely remove the card and any software and drivers and do a clean install with the new drivers

Dell doesn't show an Optiplex dx620 but they do have a GX620. The lick below will take you to the download site:

Select your OS and then download the Audio driver that you need.

You can also enter the service tag number that is on a label. That will make sure you properly identify the machine and get the correct driver.

Good luck, and please let me know how hit works out.

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.
