Having problems with your Gateway GT5468 Desktop PC ?

Trying to add speakers

\015 Hi there I am trying to add speakers to my system so that I can have the desktop PLUS the speakers that are built into my monitor all work at the same time, desktop speakers will work if I plug into the headphone jack on front of my I-INC AH191D monitor but then obviously the speakers in the monitor don't work, is this possible? Or do I have to have one or the other? Windows Vista homeThanks :)Terry\015

Answers :

Hi, \015\012
\015\012The speaker system built into the monitor is configured that when a plug is inserted to headphone port, the speaker is mute. This is normal. (Consider when one wants to hear from a headphone, but not from the speaker, this is most user friendly configuration), same with sound system in a laptop/PC notebook.\015\012However, for some system it is configurable, please check your monitor manuals.
The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??

I've tried three different sets of speakers and each time the left speaker will not work. I've also tried plugging in my headphones and my left headphone wont work.
