I am trying to set up the Bose Companion 2 multimedia speakers system:
on a Lenovo M91p. I installed a Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Xtreme Audio into a PCIe slow with no problems. The drivers installed, and the sound card shows up in device manager.
In the BIOS, I have tried it both with and without On Board sound enabled. It would make sense to have it disabled.
The right speaker has one wire going to power. Another going to the left speaker. There are four RCA ports. The two top ones are each for left and take the RCA jack which is white. The two bottom are for right and take RCA jacks which are red.
The first time, I plugged the white (L) and red (R) ports on the left side. The second time, I tried plugging the white (L) and red (right) into the right side ports. Neither way works.
Results are. Enable onboard sound and get sound from the onboard speaker inside the computer and get no sound from the Bose speakers. Disable onboard sound and get no sound from either.
