Lagging in pc games since I properly configured my quadraphoric

Alright, I'll start from the beginning. About two months ago I originally had two dell speakers. I suddenly got the urge to get more speakers so I can enjoy my pc games to the fullest. I found acer speakers that no one was using, some old pink speakers also not in use, and one pair of apple head phones. (The white ones that come with iPods) I didn't know much about speakers at the time so I hooked them up all wrong. I put the acer speakers and pink speakers in two mic jacks, and I put the iPod speakers in a woofer jack. Since I had no idea what the hell I was doing, only the dell speakers played sound. I selected a 7.1 set up in realtek manager as well as windows playback.

Yesterday I learned that everything was all wrong. I don't even have a subwoofer or a center let alone side speakers. So the 7.1 set up was all wrong. I experimented a bit and for some reason, my computer won't let me have anything past a quadraphonic. The other speakers are detected but no sound. After messing around for six hours yesterday, I came to the conclusion that there is a problem with my mobo sound card. I'll just buy a sound card when I get more money. For now, I'll enjoy my four speakers.

Every morning I start the day off by playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, that is my favorite game. My ping is usually between 40-80 and no higher. Well, this morning it was over 150. Naturally, idiots were making comments and harassing me about my ping. I exited out and reset both my router and modem. The problem still was not fixed. I then tested Call of Duty 4, and whenever I try to join a server, it says "Server is only for players with low pings."

The only change I made to my computer was correcting the speakers. The volume is so clear and sounds so nice. I really love this new set up. I currently have my Acer Speakers and Dell Speakers hooked up. This is a huge problem for me right now. To be honest, PC Gaming means almost everything to me. I play computer games all day, and since school just ended I have quadruple time to myself as opposed to school days. I took all my finals and regents so now I literally have all the time in the world. My priorities are family, school, pc gaming, and learning about computers. I plan on majoring in computer science and definitely will pursue a career with computers. Since I don't go out, people my age are ***** can't stand them, I found PC Gaming to occupy my time. I really don't know what to do since I can't play any games.

Is it possible that my speakers are interfering with the wifi signals? My computer is too far away to run a wired connection, so I'm on wireless. The router is only about 10 feet away not even, so I'm really close to it. Could the speakers be messing with the radio signals, or is it something else? I'll be on steam trying to figure out what is causing my lag. Feel free to add me if you have any idea what the problem is.

Edit: Quick Question. I have old fans outside my case. I put 2 on the floor to keep my legs cool. The feeling is nice and I put 1 next to my mouse to cool my right hand down. I did this about a month ago, and I really am liking the results. I'm not doing any damage to my computer or anything just to be sure right?

Edit #2: I restarted my computer and tested again. I joined a cod4 server and I got in, my ping was in the 70s-steady. I then tested csgo and played on the community server. My ping was all over the place, from 150-200. I tested it on other community servers and same result. I then joined a classic-casual official server and my ping was in the low 100s. 100-120. Something is really wrong here.

Personally,. I wouldn't bother with anything past stereo out jack. I use a stereo out to 2 RCA that is connected to an XMS amplifier that has 2 output 80 watt speakers (Panasonic 3d surround sound). Having my own amplifier means that I can adjust the volume manually from outside if the PC. I also use the amplifier for all my other audio appliances such as the TV, the DVD player, the 5x cd player, as well as the 2 other PC's. by utilizing a switch box for the audio.

As for the use of the output jacks, if you prefer to connect directly to the motherboard rather than an external amplifier /woofer then you'd need to use the Audio Detector which should pop up when you plug in a stero cable, use the auto-detect option and it will show you the connection array. The pink jack is microphhone, the blue jack is usually line in, both you should avoid using for audio out.

As for interference, the likely cause is probably the wifi, you need to keep them both at least a meter away from each other, iphones and mobile phones also cause distortion to the speakers. All you need to do is keep a 5 foot distance between the speakers and the wifi devices.




I used to have a set up with 4 pairs of stereo speakers (that I found discarded in a back alley), that was attached through a series of multi connections to one connection then to the stereo out jack. Lots of black and red wires needing to be twisted together.

Thank You. For some reason, I'm no longer having connection problems in game. Everything is working the way it should. I know what all the jacks are for now. I do plan on eventually having a surround sound system as well as buying a sound card because my integrated one isn't working the way I want it to. I'm about to play counter-strike now, I'll keep this thread updated.
