Can a Dell Dimension 3000 connect to 5.1 surround sound

If your Laptop has a "Latitude C/Port Advanced Port Replicator" Then this Port Replicator connects Dell Latitude notebooks to peripheral devices such as a monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse. To accomplish this, connect your peripheral devices to the Dell port replicator itself, and leave them connected to it. Then connect your notebook to the port replicator to access the devices without having to attach them individually each time you want to use them. You can also set up speakers on the Dell Latitude C/Port port replicator to provide improved quality audio.

Follow following steps:
1) Place your Dell Latitude notebook in your C/Port Advanced Port Replicator and turn on the notebook using the power button.
  • 2) Place the speakers you want to connect to the port replicator on either side of the port replicator according to the Left and Right (L and R) labels on the speakers.

  • 3) Plug the audio line connector from the speakers into the audio line out plug on the port replicator. The audio line out plus is on the right-hand side of the port replicator base next to the infrared port, directly opposite the notebook ejection lever.

  • 4) Plug the power cable from the speakers into a power outlet if needed. Battery-powered speakers will not require this. Turn on the speakers following the manufacturer's instructions.

  • 5) Open your preferred music or audio software (such as Windows Media Player or iTunes) on your Dell Latitude notebook and play an audio file to hear the newly-attached speakers.

    I have lost my instruction booklet and it has been almost 1.5 years since I have used the notebook. I cannot get it to turn off. It keeps saying Windows is Shuting Down; however, it is still on. Can...

    Hi There,

    Simply hold down the power button until the notebook shuts down. Then, restart the notebook and it may just boot up normally. If you're taken to a screen with options that include Startup Repair or Start Windows Normaly, try Normaly first. If it won't start, use Startup Repair the next time around.

    When you leave a notebook off that long, Windows may have tried to install dozens of updates. You will need to patiently update Windows completely.

    Where is the reset button on a HP 4415s pro note book

    There is no reset button for notebooks. In order to reset, you need to shutdown your notebook. To do so, either use shutdown option in your operating system. If you want to power off directly, hold down power button for 5s. It will turn off immediately. Now turn on again.

    Acer laptop shut of during power outage .

    From the Acer website:
    Power Issues or Will not Boot
    If the notebook does not power on:

    Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

    If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
    1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
    2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
    3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
    4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
    5. Normally power on the notebook.
    6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
    7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
      If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
    Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

    Have an acer 2000 series, model type CL32. will not power up, put the power jack in, the battery (blue) flickers but wont stay on to give power

    try a couple things for me first--

    *put your comp on a flat stable surface.
    *look at your power cord. there is a big box in the middle of it. check to make sure the wires on either side of it are pushed in all the way, if it is the kind that unplugs from the box like mine are.
    * open your notebook and plug the cord into the back.
    * while holding the plug firmly into the back of your notebook, turn it on and try to boot up.

    if this doesnt let you turn it on and boot up, you have either an internal power supply problem, battery problem or possibly a bad power cord. you would need to have someone physically check this for you.

    If it does turn on. the jack in the back could be worn out, loose or what have you or the cord is possibly bad.

    please let me know what happens

    My note book Compaq Presario 700 is dead

    Does anything happen when you turn it on? First thing to try is unplugging the notebook and then removing the battery. Then, replace the battery, plug in the notebook and try to power it on. If nothing happens still, try removing the battery and then plugging it in and try to power on the notebook with no battery in it.

    Hi when i turn my ACER 5315 LAPTOP on it runs for 5-10secs before turning off again please help thanks


    We can try some work around to narrow down the issue.

    I think your notebook might be getting power from the Ac adapter. The remaining power in the battery might be giving power for few seconds and trning OFF again.

    To check this, once remove the battery from the notebook and turn on the laptop with only AC adapter.

    If there is no power at all, then what I guess is correct. Issue might be with the AC adapter or with the power jack on the motherboard.

    If the notebook turns ON even with the Ac adapter and turned off aftetr few seconds without battery, then you have to contact service center as it could be the hardware issue.

    My acer notebook 5920 will not boot up how do i fix it

    Assuming your notebook will power on, but will not boot to windows, when you turn it on, there should be a message at the top saying to press one of the 'F' keys for emergency recovery, usually F11. Do this and your notebook will provide options to backup your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. It will take you through the initial setup process from when you first bought the system.

    If your notebook will not power on with the battery, plug in the ac adaptor and try again.
