I have been able to hook my laptop to a lower end receiver via auxillary inputs so that I can play my itunes.
However, I am really at a loss trying to figure out why I cannot get any sound to go through this receiver. I am using a cord that plugs into the headphone output on the computer and goes directly into the aux input in the receiver...When I select the appropriate aux channel on the receiver, there is no sound... other than making sure my volume is turned up, any suggestions on a better approach???
On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs.
Hope this helps.

Buy a 3.5 mm-to-RCA audio cable (you will probably need a long one). Plug the 3,5 mm. end of the cable into the headset jack of your laptop and the RCA end of the cable into the RCA/composite (R/L) audio input of your receiver.
A standard RCA cable audio out of the tv to audio input of the receiver(ie, tv in or auxillary in (select which input you used on the reciever menu) The sound from the tv will be played through the receiver.
IF your Laptop has a stereo LINE 1/8" INPUT jack, you can take the Stereo ( Left & Right ) LINE outputs on your mixer and feed into this jack on your PC. You will need a 1/4" dual plug for the mixer end to a single 1/8" stereo plug on the PC end. I suspect the problem you are having is either related to your PC only have a MIC input jack or you have something set wrong in your PC's sound config. file. More information is needed to properly solve the problem.
