SOURCE: Broken Volume Control
try ebay or bizrate
it may be easier than you think to fix it.
look for a new cable or a similar end piece and you can splice the new cable onto the old one.
if you would like when you get a new cable i can assist you step by step to fix it.. you will need to get electical tape and wire cutters/strippers

SOURCE: speakers not working
The black/green/orange connectors go into the corresponding color ports in the back of the computer, but you computer have to be able to support 7.1 or at least 5.1 audio. If it can't you can buy a separate sound card from Creative that does.

Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?
If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one
If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up

Hey, I had that same problem and looked over it with my Dad, who's very technically minded. Here's what he found:

We also had no/weak sound on the left channel of the I-Trigue 3300 2.1. Here's what we found (starting where you left off...).
The internal bias for the input pin for the left channel on the M51132L (pin two on the M51132L between the heat sink and the connectors) appears to have failed. It was sitting at an operating point of around 11 volts (should be 5.4V as the others were) and was only capacitor coupled to other nodes (the input at 0V bias and the chips reference on pin 4 at 5.4V) so it wasn't a case of capacitor leakage. Our temporary fix was to hang a 10k resistor between the node on pin 2 (with the failed bias) and the node on pin 4 (a good bias source). The easiest place to hang it was across the cap that connected to those two nodes. That pulled pin 2 far enough from the rail (down to around 9 volts) to allow it to work at the levels we drive it at while we look for a replacement part. The expectation is that with this kludge in place the left channel will distort before the right one will when the drive level is increased however, for the tests so far, the right and left channel now both work equally well.

Hope this helps you!
