Creative Inspire speakers+sub - aweful noise!

  Adam Patrick 17:06 05 Feb 2009


Just bought Creative Inspire T3030 speakers (2 satelite's plus sub woofer) to go with my new Acer Aspire 3370 laptop (Windows Vista)

Unfortunately, the sound is abysmal!

I have tried these speakers with my old two and a half year old Advent laptop (Windows XP) and the difference is amazing - excellent quality conpared to a terrible muffled boomy sound with my new laptop with drowns out any trace of music.

Is there anything I can do to make these speakers work with my new Acer laptop?

In the speaker options screen on new laptop there is only option for 5:1 speaker setup though - perhaps only 5:1 will work on new laptop?

Is there a chance these speakers are not compatible with Vista?

There is a sticker on laptop next to keyboard that says "Dolby Home Theatre" but I guess that is the internal speakers so nothing to do with it?

Any help would be appreciated

Should be an option in soundcard setup to select 2+1 as your speaker system.
