Sound system Configuration !! only rear speakers working !

Hi,
I got a cheap Logitech SoundMan SR-30 (5-Piece computer speakers) from Value Village.... The problem is that when connecting it to the laptop only rear speakers work ... I figured what the problem was ... the thing is that at the back of the main speaker, all the other speakers gets connected .. and from there goes out two cables that should get connected to the device (Audio out) one for rear, and the other for front.

Since Laptops have only one Audio Out, how could i make the second work...

So basically, there is one cable going out of the laptop to the main speaker (Audio In, rear) ... since there is no other place where i could put the cable for the front speakers .. is there any device or software that could beused ??

The "control panel" has things like "sound effect manager" or "sound max" in case of intel chipsets. Thru this you can configure the audio in and rear from laptop to act as front and rear outs.

The two can function cariably not always as rear and audio in!
Thats what my frnd did once to get quadrophonics to work.

Hope that might work for you too.. All loes in how you confiogure the sound effect manager or similar thing in the control panel..

Hope it works for you

My volume is to low


Your computer should have a little speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen on the taskbar. Click on it and check to make sure that volume slider is set to the maximum volume.

Also check the media player program that you are using for a seperate volume control since most players like Windows Media Player or VLC Media Player will also have their own dedicated volume control somewhere right on the media player window itself. So just make sure this second volume control is also set to maximum.

Otherwise that may simply be as much as your built in laptop speakers are able to achieve. Very few laptops will have loud high performance speakers built-in. Most people simply buy an aftermarket external powered speaker system to plug into the headphone jack of their laptop if they want / need loud high quality sound.

Here are some links to a few models of external powered computer speaker systems that are currently available on EBay:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.



I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Good luck and take care.

I have CQ40 compaq presario laptop. when I am trying to start windows media player, it shows a message saying that I dont have a sound device in my computer. Please help!!!


  • Hi, first go to the "Start Search Window," click on the Start button, type: sound. Next in the select the "Playback" button; there should be a "Icon" with a speaker showing if the Speaker is working, or not. Highlight the icon, by clicking on it. The next step is to (check the configuration), click on the button; observe the "Test Button," test the device. You can configurate the speaker futher, by clicking on the next button; following the instructions. Once that area is completed, you can return to the "sound" window and select: Properties, in the "speaker properties, select one at a time each category: Level, Enhancements... to further make necessary changes to the sound, and speaker arrangement. Be sure to observe the ("Enable this device"), to have the sound work properly. Next select the Properties button, click on the "Driver Button" to Update the Drivers. After you have made all the changes and updates; "Restart the Computer." I hope this helped, if so rating the solution is appreciated, thanks."

I have a dell d430 but sound decided to stop working


Be sure your speakers / headphones are plugged into the correct port. There are several, try each one.

If you still fail to recieve sound from your system, check to make sure the speakers / headphones are functioning properly. If all else fails, you can usually find a cheap surroundsound PCI card for anywhere between $14 - $30 at your local computer componant outlet.

Bestbuy, Fry's are just a couple, there are also online avenues you can persue, such as Newegg.com ,and tigerdirect.com... Bestbuy has technicians on staff that will be more than willing to help you chooose a card, as well, they may be able to help you install it.

Laptop speakers won't work after installing logitech USB speakers


Okay, go to the HP website and download the speaker drivers. It will require a reboot.

Also, try checking the Control Panel Sound Settings if the volume is low from there. This is because increasing the system volume won't work if there is a mute enabled on the speakers themselves.

Also check if the item 'Use This Device (Enable)' is selected. Go to your speaker properties. It is in the dialog box that appears now. Loom at the bottom of it for a drop down menu.

The volume settings are available in the other tabs. Make sure the volume is at 100 and the mute is unchecked.

Please rate this answer. I want to get to a higher level. I am a great contributor to computers in Yahoo! Answers too.

Connecting Creative Gigaworks S750 computer speakers to panasonic plasma tv


This depends on the audio system setup designed on your television.

Most speakers can have adapters bought for them which will allow you to connect your speakers to a television. But not every TV will support the 7 speaker configuration with PC Speakers.

The good news is the adapters are fairly cheap at Radio Shack and should not set you back more then 10 bucks. Maybe even cheaper.
