Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer aspire 5910G S/PDIF cable

Hi
Need your kind assistance.

I have an Acer Aspire 5910G laptop which I want to connect to
my z5500 speakers. I believe the acer has digital headphone out.

I believe the headphone jack has S/PDIF. Someone suggested a coaxial SPDIF out, so I need a cable that is a mono male P2 ("mini jack") at one end and a mono RCA male plug at the other end. or do I need a toslink to optical cable ?

kindly please clarify and let me know if this laptop has digital out and in that case which cable I need to buy to connect the laptop to my home theatre so that I can get DIGITAL sound output.

thanks so much and regards.

Hi,

These are Creative Z5500 speakers and you have an audio control panel that allows digital in or analog in, correct?

Digital out is usually marked by a black color ring not green and would have a stamp on it indicating digital or spdif. Digital out and coaxial out are the same thing and are a simple mono male to male mini 1/8 twisted copper cable.

You can use the digital in at the desktop control unit with a mono mini 1/8 male and male cable available at any Radio Shack and also get a mono RCA (any color) male to male adapter. Just explain your needs to the clerk there and they'll set you up.

An optical connection is completely different and makes no difference. The jack is square and usually has a plug in it to keep dust out with a square knob for grabbing it to withdraw the dust plug and put it back in place again. It's best not to bother with these things as they haven't found a place in the market.

Just so you know, you can use the analog out on your laptop to the analog in on the control unit and then select Dolby digital for processing and you won't know the difference. This whole digital thing is blown way out of proportion unless you're working with HD out to HD in on a flat panel TV unit from a Satellite Receiver or Cable Box.

Any other questions just ask away and please don't forget to rate our solutions on FixYa. Thanks.

Hi , Im trying to make my external volume controler work om my Aer 4520. Its a litlle ring that puts volume up and donwn


Ebv65,

External speakers for your laptop are very easy to hook up. They should plug right in to the external speaker outlet on the laptop. Your acer 4520 has a Headphone/speaker/line-out jack with S/PDIF support. First you need to check all your volume levels within the control panel (located in the sounds and devices folder) to make sure they are up. This solve your problem. Thanks for visiting Fixya.com. Have a great day.

Hi

I would go to device manager find the webcam double click to get into the properties and try to update the driver

if it dosen't update uninstall it restart your laptop and hopefully windows will reload it correctly for you

if it dont go to

www.acer.com and download a new driver for it but you may need winzip installed so that you can manually unzip it and install it incase it is a zipped file
