My line-in jack wont take the plug all the way in, it only goes in enough to give sound to the right speaker. I am hooking my 2.1 system with a subwoofer into my headphone jack, and I was wondering if I would get the same quality? If not can I just purchase a PCI sound card? The reason I bough new speakers is because I thought my left speaker was blown, but when I went to hook up my new speakers I saw that the cable was only half-way in. Is there a way that I can fix this jack perhaps? If not I'd like to just leave them hooked up to the headphone jack but I want to make sure I dont lose quality. Also, what setting should I use on my speakers, I have it set to desktop stereo speakers since there is no 2.1. Should I set them to something different since they are in the headphone jack?

01 – Battery55 [Line IN Jack Problem]
8th May 2006

My line-in jack wont take the plug all the way in, it only goes in enough to give sound to the right speaker. I am hooking my 2.1 system with a subwoofer into my headphone jack, and I was wondering if I would get the same quality?


The – Line IN – Jack is for connecting a Tape Recorder or other Audio Sources – It should be – Light Blue – Color Jack. If the Input Jack will not fully engage – then it is probably for – MONO – and you probably will only have the Right Speaker Operation [??] - I would expect the – MIC IN – would be the Mono Jack [??] –

Where are these Jacks located – Front or Rear of PC [??] If you are using the Front Jacks – There may be a wiring Problem – Verify with your Manual [??] The Rear Jacks are – Hard Wired – from Factory – while the Front Jacks are set at dealer -

Line In = Light Blue Jack
Line Out – [Speaker] = Lime Green Jack
MIC = Pink Jack

Usually the Headset Jack is on CD Player or On a Speaker but could be included on a Front Panel Option – I suppose [??]

I meant Line-out, I'm hooking speakers up to the headphones jack on my front panel as opposed to the lime green line-out. Will I have any change in quality?

That is a – technical – question – Which requires a review of the – technical specifications of –
1- Audio Card
2- Speakers System
3- Headset
