Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

I just got a pair of Logitech LS21 2.1 speakers with a subwoofer for my Acer Aspire 3680. A couple months ago, I reformatted my computer & put Windows XP with Realtek HD Audio system on it. When I hookedup the speakers, the volume was so low & the subwoofer doesn't work at all even though its right out of the box. Do I need a different sound card? I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Help!


Answers :

Depending on the software that runs the sound card (you can find it in the control panel), the ports may be configured differently than they used to be. Check in the control panel and see if there is way to adjust the "plugs" and what they mean. Some of the sound cards allow you to change your mic to a sub and your input to an output!
