Take your "Line Out" from your sound card and use a 1/8" 
mini stereo to RCA cable (Radio Shack) and connect that 
cable to any Aux input on you stereo.  Any input on your 
stereo except "phono" input will work.

Another option is to use a 1/8" stereo plug splitter, and 
plug both your computer speakers and the 1/8" stereo--
control (multimedia keyboards) to control stereo volume 
as well.

2.connecting my PC to my home stereo - need help

I have a Dell XPS 200 (Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005) and am trying to 
connect it my home stereo so I can listen to my music through my stereo 
instead of the PC speakers. I used a Monster Cable 1/8" to RCA L/R 
(Y-adapter) to connect from PC to CD input on my receiver. The problem is 
that when I do this it causes my speakers to make a humming noise. To check 
if there was a problem with the Y-adapter or my stereo, I connected an i-pod 
using the same adapter and it worked fine with no humming noise. I also did 
this with a boom box. Dell's tech support was of no help. Any ideas as to 
what I did wrong?

5.Computer Hookup to Home Stereo


I currently listen to the music files on my computer through my home stereo 
system, using a cable from the computer's line out jack to the stereo. It 
actually works quite well. My question has to do with a sound card or, in 
this case, the lack of one. If I were to purchase one of the newer sound 
cards, instead of using the "integrated audio" that came with the computer, 
would it make a difference in audio quality? Or would it not matter since 
the quality of the audio is determined by the stereo system, regardless of 
the source?

Just curious, and I am most grateful for any recommendations.
