Sound Cards
Dell Laptops

If your Dell laptop has a headphones jack but no line-out jack can you still connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system to it?

You can connect the 5.1 speaker system to the dell laptop as

long as the cable is not an optical or digital cable. Some cables

double analog or digital. These you can use. You should be able to

plug them in if the connector fits. You may not have sound out of

all of your speakers but you can still try. If the plug will fit

then nothing can be hurt. If it does not work you might try getting

an external usb sound card(e.g. soundblaster mp3) I hope that

answers your question.
