  1. I'm a complete novice and so I hope somene out there can help me. Just bought the inspire 5500 second hand. Trying to run it through my internal audigy 2 sound card is proving a challenge to say the least. I assume I've got the wiring wrong as I'm getting no sound out of the speakers at all. I dont have a manual for the audigy 2 for the speakers and so connecting them so far has been guess work. Does anyone have a manual or know where i can download the manual for the speakers and the sound card?
    Could you lay out some simple step by step setup instructions for me or post a linkl that i can follw?

    Please help!

    Thanks for your response Lookinaround. I have checked the sound card and it appears fine. Howver at the moment I'm not getting a squeak out of any of my 5.1's.

    I'm wondering whether its the speakers or me thats the problem. If you have any other suggestions please advise.
