    Does the subwoofer use a cord connecting it to the speakers, or does it plug directly into the sound card?

Try the following steps:

  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

I am getting an amber light on my Dell Vostro 230 desktop and it won't boot up


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

I cannot get any sound output from my Acer Aspire T180 desktop PC. I changed the monitor from the original "out of the box" monitor. I have plugged in media speakers but there still is no sound output.


Sounds like a driver problem.

You should be able to get a universal Realtek driver from here.....

What does the red switch on the back of my dell dimendion e510 do


Don't! That's for foreign voltages. It should say 115 and 230. The 115 is for 120V systems while the 230 is for 240V systems. The actual voltage you get is usually a little less than ideal, so they design power supplies to accept a lower voltage.

Bought Logitech z-cinema 2.1 but the subwoofer does not seem to work properly...


The subwoofer features Logitech's eight inch long-throw sub in a bass-reflex enclosure. The sub is capable of throwing out 110W RMS with frequencies down to 35 HZ to give you that deep bass for the earthshaking explosions.You must have problem in the product .the installation might have been not proper ... check it via a sound engineer

No sound from my logitech z4 subwoofer


Is there sound coming from the 2 speakers?

Subwoofers are designed to only play bass, you shouldnt hear much acoustic sound coming from it at all.

The best way to test that is to play a song with a good amount of low bass, see if you hear it coming from the woofer, or can you feel the woofer vibrate?

If there is a hole in the side of the woofer box, when you are playing the song is there any air coming out of that hole to the bass line beat?

I dont know how you have your wiring set up, but if it still isnt working please check to make sure that you have the wiring plugged in properly.

If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know. I hope this fixes your problem.
