If it as a port it should be usable, I know Dell aren't that popular but in terms of functioning laptops, they're not that bad. m 0 l donpacific2k February 4, 2010 5:42:03 PM What OS are you using on your laptop and what have you tried? For vista and 7, the first place to start is control panel ->sound, and see what output options are available. m 0 l techguy378 February 4, 2010 6:42:26 PM On Dell's old P4 based Inspiron 5150 laptops the SPDIF function was disabled in the hardware. Even if you plugged in Dell's adapter to their proprietary S-Video port the SPDIF port on the adapter wouldn't transmit any audio. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
