Hi,
My brother has a Dell GX 270 that has an internal speaker, and would like to use external speakers. How do you disable the internal speaker, so that two outside speakers can be used.

Regards :thumbsup:

The internal speaker serves a different function than external speakers. It is typically for hardware alerts. For example, when the system checks the hardware on startup one beep indicates all ok. If the memory or video card were failing a series of peep codes indicate the device that is failing.

To use external speakers he just needs to plug them into the lime green jack on the back of the system and make sure the volume is up and he speakers are powered on . This will use the systems on board sound card which almost all motherboards have.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Here is a diagram of the system.
Do you have the external speakers connected to the lime green jack on the back?

Also check start - control panel - sounds and audio devices - audio tab
Check to see what the sound playback device is set to
In the beginning there was the command line.

what is the sound playback device suppose to be set to. Two speakers are connected to the green jack on the back, when plugged in the sound coming from them is very low. all speaker adjustments have been set to high. Tried unplugging the wire inside( speaker led) but to no avail. Sound out of the two external speakers is very low. There must be a way to turn off the internal speaker so that the sound will go to the two outer speakers.

Regards

Are the speakers being powered by a powerpack that you plug into the wall?
