How to connect speakers to a Dell computer that has 7.1 intergated sound card.

This applies to: Dell Inspiron 530 and 531

Note if you are just connecting standard stereo speakers (2.0 or 2.1) you will just connect them to the green port. In adddtion if the speakers are 4.0 or 4.1 you would connect the rear speakers into the black port.

In regards to 5.1 speakers you would hook up the above listed connections and then connect the center and sub speakers to the orange port. The picture below shows the ring assignments for the center and sub-woofer connection if you are not using computer speakers.

For the 7.1 configuration you would hook up the above listed connection and then you would connect your side speakers to the white port. Note the side speakers are left/right speakers so the ring assignment is a standard setup with tip being left and the second ring being right.

First and foremost backup all your data . I am sure the dust has accumulated and resulted in over heating of the components . You'll have to use compressed air to clean it . Don't place the casing on the ground . Then in addition to this you can use an air purifier as well . One of our customers had a similar problem and he felt keeping an air purifier near the casing helped and send us this pic . gateway-pentium-4-desktop-turns-f55w3lk1wwh14un4o4jnqp34-3-0.jpg

The CPU cooling fan usually sits on top of a heat sink which is held tightly agaist the core of the CPU by the clasps you refered to. It soumds to me like the CPU has oveheated and will only function for a few seconds. If it's a fairly new CPU, you may be able to buy one online at places like http://www.tigerdirect.com. If it's an older model, you will have to try & find one at places like E-bay.

If you install a replacement make sure the CPU fan/heatsink clamps the CPU flush against the heat sink (apply a thin coating termal paste to the top of the CPU core).
NOTE: If the plastic clamps attached to the motheboard which hold the fan clips are broken - forget it! A new CPU will just ovehat again.

Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.


    Thanks for rating

    Good luck

    Why no sound from my speakers with Dell Dimension 2400, even though it's equipped for sound? Speakers worked fine plugged into Compaq.


    Please try other speakers to make sure that it is in fact the computer and not the speaker port itself. If other speakers work, then it is most likely a driver problem. Try to find the drivers for your speakers and install them, restart, and reconnect your speakers. Good luck!

    Enquiry: Is it essential to have speakers that have a direct power lead. The computer in question is HPA6332 - 9500.


    Page 17 provides guidance for connecting speakers to an HP A6332.

    http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00839729.pdf

    This excerpt on page 17 can be clarified by adding "IF," before the sentence.

    "NOTE: Speakers may be passive (no power button and no power cord) or active (power
    button or power cord). Your computer supports only active (powered) speaker systems; the
    speaker system must have its own power cord."

    This is an excerpt from page 21

    "Speaker types

    Speakers may be included with the monitor (select models only) or are sold separately.
    Refer to the product documentation for your speakers.
    Your computer supports only an active (powered) speaker system. An active speaker
    system must have its own power cord. A home audio system does not require active
    speakers, because the receiver provides amplification."

    Generally speaking, manufacturers offer many types of speakers for use with their computers. If the speakers that originally came with your computer had a extrernal power supply, then it would probably be best to use externally powered speakers.

    I have seen many older computers and even some budget computers that use the sound card for amplification. Most modern sound cards are primarilly focused on sound processing, and not necessarilly amplification.

    Its impossible to know whether your system requires powered or non-powered speakers because I have no way of knowing your computers specific configuration. However, I think it is safe to say, if you use externally powered speakers in either case, you should be ok.

    If you call the manufacturer, or go to its web site, your original computer configuration can normally be provided if you provide its serial number.

    Hope this helps - Good Luck!

    DVD plays partial sound


    Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.

    Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.
