When you installed the new sound card it disables the front connections due to them being set to run off the original sound card. What kind of computer are you refering to here? Also what kind of sound card was originaly in it? And what kind of sound card did you install. This information will greatly help with being able to get your front connections up and running again.

Front inputs? (green and pink not working)


I thought the front was for a microphone and headset. I don't think those are speaker jacks. Look closely at the icon that is next to the pink and green on the front, does it show the icon of a microphone and headset?

Normally the speaker jack will show and arrow going out which means sound going out. If you look at the speaker port in the back of the computer it is normally the light green port. Notice the icon on it. Does the icon on the front look the same as the one on the back? Is the color on the front the same as the one on the back? I think you're plugging into the wrong port.

Make sure you have the volume up in your Audio/Sound properties and make sure you don't have the speakers on mute. Also make sure you turn the speakers on and turn the volume up on them.

Where is located the sound card for gateway 310 x h computer


Go to http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/310_Series/2800350/2800350rv.shtml

The sound card is part of the motherboard - the three small jacks (pink, yellow (green?) and blue) just below the USB/network ports are for the sound card functions. Pink = Microphone, Yellow (Green) = audio out, Blue = audio in.

There is also an audio out in the front of the computer for headphone output.

No sound it says no device installed


This may sound silly, but I do not mean it to be silly as an answer.

I have found, over the years, especially with Compaq and HP computers, that when you plug the speaker plugs into the back of the computer, green into green, and pink into pink, there is no sound. But if you reverse them, such that you now have green into pink, and pink into green, you will have sound.

It does not happen every ime, but more times than I thought possible.

Otherwise, take the plugs from the rear of the computer and, if you have outlet jacks on the front of the computer, plug them in there, and see if you can get sound that way.

The saying goes, "It might not help, but it couldn't hurt!"

Good luck!

Color coded plugs for on the back of computer


Yes, in fact, you have a nicer (newer) sound card as opposed to the single channel types of the past. This type of card will work with the surround sound speakers for computers, as long as it's functioning properly.

Does Dell model CX260 desktop have a sound card pc slot, or doesn't need one?


if the back of the computer has 3 jacks colored either red, blue, pink, or green, then it has a built in sound card.if not, then it requires a sound card. You can purchase a usb sound card if you are not comfortable installing a sound card inside a pc.

I've just bought a desktop from Cube (the Polaris ST12) which comes with Creative Inspire T6100 5.1 speaker system. The connection instructions which come with the speakers show 3 cables from the subwoofer...


The blue is for a audio in and pink is the mic. Green is the audio out.
You will need to buy a new video card that has all 4-5 colors (green,,black,orange,blue,pink,white)
That way you can plug in all your connections and it'll work correctly.

Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


Hi rjlevesque

For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

green = speakers
pink = mic
blue = line in

Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ

No sound?


HellO;

if you see tree circle slot in the rear view of the computer, the color are pink, green, blue., The green slot is the speaker out of the sound card.

If not found these, you should add the add-on sound card hardware in your computer.

If still no sound, YOu should install the audio driver of your system., The cd utilities is enclosed in your computer.

May this help, best regards, melnavz
