Any available Line Level input will work but NOT Phono. Get an adapter at Radio Shack to convert the probable 3.5 mm jack on the PC to an RCA pair.

In the PC: Get into the sound controls and max out the volume. Set the speaker type to large stereo or equivalent.

    There are no "Line Input" Jacks. Both are RCA jacks and I have the cables to connect - just can't figure out where to plug in. Available options: Phono, Tape, CD, TV, Video. I've tried TV and Video. The others are already busy with other components. Do I need a pre-amp to use the TV or Video inputs?

    Those are all RCA jacks. I repeat - use anything available except PHONO. Nothing in this conversation needs a preamp.

I have a CT5803 Dell Sound Card with 4 intermal pinsets, I need to hook Up speaker to speaker out and need information about its use!


16 bit sound cards usually have 3 pin out or jack on the card, one is line in, one is line out and one is for the mic.

the line out is used for your computer speakers, plug in the green colored jack from your speaker into the line out jack and you hear whatever your playing on your computer, ie: music TV or internet broadcasts. You may have to set up the device or software settings that you are using before it properly gets the sound to go through your speakers. Some compatible or Creative Labs emulator cards have five pin outs, these are for a more sophisticated sound system like 5.1 or higher. These jacks have 3 outgoing jacks. One for center speaker then one for front and one for rear. a 6.1 system card may have a side speaker out jack also.


The CT5803 is a Creative card that was made by Creative Labs for Dell, it typically has 3 jacks. one for your speakers to plug into one for your mic to plug into and one for you to plug into an inbound sound source **** as an MP3 player. If this is not what you are talking about please re post your question and possibly clarify the information that you are trying to obtain.

Why my dell dimension 8300 audio jacks dont work?


If the on board audio jacks don't work, then go to your local computer store the online store that I like and buy a PCI Sound Card that goes into one of the PCI Slots on the desktop.

You can find one for less than $20. The link below will take you to the site. When it opens up just type PCI Sound Card in the white search box and press GO. When the search results return they show the most popular, sort the list down by Price Low to High. Whichever one you select read the details on it to make sure it will work with your operating system. That's the only criteria you need to worry about. PCI slots are universally standard, so if it's a pci it will fit in your pci slot.

Tring to get audio, do I have to plug in a sepeerate audio cord?


Yes, you should have either one of these two cables, one with video and audio together, or just one with 2 audio jacks. Plug into the green marked jack on computer.

How can I hook my computer to my surround sound so i can hear my music loud enough


One easy way is to purchase an audio adapter. It has the two red and black audio jacks with the one male audio plug, like for the headphone jack. Then you go from the back of the PC were you normally put your stereo speakers with the male piece, then plug your audio jacks into an auxiliary spot on your stereo.

Speakers work in the front headphone jack on my Dell PC, but not in the audio jacks in the back of the computer


I think most computers do not have headphones in the rear, just LINE OUT, which has no enough volume to be used for headphones.

I bought a connector that you would use for an ipod but, I still have no sound. On the back of my Vizio TV...where the RGB cable is hooked up, there is a small headphone size jack there. Is that the one...


Clarifying...

You are trying to play audio from the TV through your computer?

You need an adapter cable that has an 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end, and two RCA male jacks on the other end.

The RCA connectors are to be plugged into your RV using the AUDIO OUT jacks (usually red/white) and the small plug goes into the auxiliary or line in jack on the back of your computer.

Then, Double-Click on the volume icon in the system tray (this should bring up the system mixer), unmute the line in sound if it is not already and run the "slider" control for that input up about half way.

then, Tune the TV to whatever channel or input you wish and adjust the volume level on your computer to a comfortable listening level.

Rob

ps. Some TVs don't use fixed level audio outputs, and the volume will vary as you run the volume up/down on the TV, too...

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

The red/white plugs on the cable are called "RCA jacks", you'll need to get an adapter which will convert the rca jacks into one stereo pin jack to plug into the input jack of your computer
