Hello All.

I am running a stock HP xw9400 workstation with xp professional and service pack 3.

There is something i noticed on this computer, A while back i reinstalled drivers for my sound card, after the uninstall and before the reinstall I noticed that sounds being played on the computer were coming from a small internal speaker. After reinstalling my drivers my sound was coming out of my normal speakers but no longer out of the internal speaker.

I was just wondering if anyone knows how to make it so that the internal speaker works along with my Altec Lansing speakers to make a sort of "Surround sound" effect as there are speakers on my moniter and when i have them on i like the increase in sound.

Thanks for any and all help

Thats odd, normally the internal speaker is reserved for system sounds (like boot up, memory errors, overheating, etc) the fact it was working as a speaker for your normal stuff is an oddity to me. I would imagine, if it were possible to tie it in with your normal settings, then there would be either an option in the BIOS, or within the sound settings of your computer, if its not there I would imagine it cant be done.
