Speakers hi map9966, thanks for your input, however, when i first bought the PC tower the rear speaker port was functionall with stereo, the side speaker ports was not, i rang the manufacturer, he advised me to place a 'jumper' on the mainboard, i forget where now, this enabled one speaker only to work in both the rear and front/side 'sockets'

Hi ozlion, I have been through the manual for your board & other than the front speaker/mic connector I have not been able to find a jumper to do what you are asking. You can download the manual for yourself at this link.

speakers - 7fd7530.jpg &
Only some newer boards that handel HD can play stereo front & back at the same time.

    If you look closely at AUDIO1 in your manual pg. 20. This picture shows the default settings from factory. It looks like there is a jumper going across pin 5&6 and also across pin 9&10. This could be why you had stereo in both speakers (rear audio jack).

    You know your case. I can't see it.

    There is no way to get sound to your front audio jack unless you plug in a front audio connector coming from the case & plugging it onto AUDIO1. So simply moving the default jumpers for the front audio will not send audio to your front audio jack. See where this is going? Just thought of this! Spank me! As I look in my own manual of my board (which is a high end board) I too have the same set of pins (10) with jumpers (different location), exactly like your board & I am not using my front audio. (too easy to break off if left in).

    Strange I'll admitt but true. So using your manual, make sure your jumper is set across as I mentioned. You should gain stereo from your rear audio jack.

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.

Hi, one of my speakers has a front input port what is this used for?

Input port is most likely used to play something like an iPod through your speakers. You will need a cable like this one . Just plug one end into the "headphones" port on your iPod like device, and the other into the input port on the speakers.
If this helps, please rate this answer.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....

Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

You can use either the line in or microphone input, as long as the levels are adjusted for volume input to minimize distortion in the sound.

The speaker symbol should be clicked on on the lower bar of Windows 7 to see the graphic equalizer in windows for each input of the sound card. Other versions of windows also have a speaker symbol down below on the right, I think.

I just moved my pc and not when I play sound I get nothing. which input do it use for the speaker jack. The computer is a gateway gt5662

Normally the ports on the tower are color coded. If you are using an analog audio output device connected through a standard 2 channel jack, the correct port to plug your speakers should be colred green.

WE are trying to use the pioneer reciever vsx 453 for our computer speakers. Any idea where we might plug in our input cable from the computer?

Hi you will use the 1/8" mini output on the back of your computer and plug it into any input EXCEPT phono on the receiver.

I usually use one that is easy to remember such as the CD or Video 1.

you will need a cable that has a 1/8" mini stereo plug on 1 side and a pair of male RCA jacks on the other they are available on ebay for about $6 shipped or at radio shack.

I have my Vizio hooked up to my computer. I have a sub-woofer and speakers. How do I get the speakers to work w/tv mode. They work when I am using computer mode. I have comcast cable and box.

Good day sir, Hi, you see, the TV produces its own sound, you need to feed this sound to your PC. here are options were you need to choose.
  1. You need a separate sub/speaker system for your TV. feed the sub/speaker with the sound line out from the TV. you also need an RCA to stereo baby plug adaptor for your sub/speaker.
  2. If you want to use your PC speakers, feed the line out of the TV sound to the line in of the PC, usually the line in is the blue port, you need an RCA to stereo baby plug. then activate the line in function from the mixer volume properties. This requires that you turn on your PC when in TV mode.
  3. Simply disconnect the sub/speaker baby plud input from the PC and connect it to the line out of your TV using an RCA to baby jack adaptor. (re connect again if you want it on your PC. this is very complicated)
  4. Does your sub has extra input? like aux, or cd, or tuner? feed the TV line out to one of these extra port. use the input selector switch from TV and PC. you need an RCA to stereo baby plug connector.
I forgot to ask, Does your TV has line out? if no, you are stuck with the built-in speakers.

Sound problem

Hi ozlion, there are a set of pins dedicated for front sound & mic operations. The fact that your front is loacated on the side of the case is irrelevant. If there was a difference in the sound between the rear jacks as opposed to the side jacks there may be an adjustment one could try but this is not the case. Both side & rear are not putting out through all your speakers.
This indicates a problem with the integrated sound chip or your speakers are defective. Suggest you swap your speakers with (a known good set) of speakers. If the good set of speakers do the same than the motherboards integrated sound chip is bad.
A work around would be to add a PCI sound card to your system. That's only if your board is out of warranty.
(So hate giving out bad news).

ozlion, if you have more questions feel free to ask.
Good Luck!
