Having problems with your Creative Labs PCWorks Computer Speakers ?

Speakers only half work!

\015 I have a Creative LABS 5:1 sound sytem but have just bought a new Compaq desktop PC The instructions for both are conflicting and confusing.\015\012I can only get sound from my two front/side speakers \015\012Should I be taking the input sound from the monitor directly to the PC?\015\012If so how do I wire the PC to the Creative Labs sub-woofer which acts as a 'control centre?'\015\012Any help would be appreciated.\015\012Alan.\015

Answers :

Short and simple, go into your control panel and find the sound Icon, Once you do open it, Look for the Audio Tab click that and Then, Advanced you should see a Drop Down tab there for sound, Click that and open it and then Select the sound system that suits your system, That should get you up and listening
Just give the wire from woffer into the CPU. no wire comes for monitor for speaker system
