Hi, i just bought a Creative Inspire M4500 which has 4.1 sound.
Anyway the system has 1 green and 1 black 3.5 plugs coming out of the subwoofer.
Back of 4.1 speakers
I have the following 2 problems:
1) connect to laptop.
My laptop has a regular sound card with an earphone connecton. If i connect the green wire from my speakers to this... then only 2 front speakers+woofer work while if i connect black cable then only rear speakers work.
I want to connect both green and black cables so i will get sound from all speakers (i don't care if it is 4.1 or just regular stereo as long as 4 speakers have sound) ?
2) connect to TV
My tv does not have an earphone area... only the regular RCA input
How can i also connect the 2 green black cables to RCA. Can i treat the green as "right" and black "left" and get some converter which will connect the 3.5 male green and black to RCA ?
If so, will this give me stereo sound from the 4 speakers ?
Sorry if my questions are very simple but i don't know much about this and i've been very confused with what i saw online.
