Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Speaker Trouble I've got an altec lansing set of 4 speakers and a subwoofer that I got with a Dell Dimension 8450 set back in 2002. For some reason, even with all four plugged in, only the two front speakers play sound. Can you help?


Answers :

You must configure your notebook to works with it.
enter in the sound configuration (Control panel->sound)
there you will see speaker setup below, click advanced and choose the right configuration for your sound system. default will be two speakers or headset speaker.

also check if you dont need to configure the software that comes with your sound board, sometimes you must configure it manually.

also check the sound board manual and recheck cable connections, sometimes you must configure sound board connectors via software to work with more than 2 speakers.

hope it helps.
