loss of sound

This question has been answered by 30yearexpert

Hi

     I have a Inspiron 1525 laptop and I like it very much. It does pretty well everything that I want it to do except I have no sound coming in on the front hook-up

 There is sound when I play a video disk but that is all. there is a switch on the bottem righthand side corner and I do not know what that is for. Can anyone help me.

Thank yo

George

  • The Inspiron 1525 actually supports 5.1 surround sound right out of the box. First, plug the front speakers into the left-most headphone jack. Connect the center-channel/subwoofer (just subwoofer in your 4.1 case) plug into the middle jack. Lastly, plug the rear speakers into the microphone/line-in jack. I know it sounds crazy but this jack can actually be configured for either input or output. As soon as I plugged in my rear speakers SIGMATEL popped up and allowed me to configure all 3 ports.

  • The battery is next to audio ports in front, maybe change it? The switch is for your WIFI:

    You also have an express card slot........
