When I plug the two speakers into the "OUT" they do not work
but when I plug them into "IN" they will work. I

2) 120GIG MATOX,
3) 56X-CR-ROM,
4) 48X12X48 CDRW-COM

This setup is correct,the sound card should be plugged into line in,if you use any other musical devices you will use the sound out line such as keyboard or other music device,check the motherboard manual and it will specify the same

Actually speakers are generally plugged into an OUT line and microphones are generally plugged into the IN.

Sounds as if your systemboard has some jumpers in the reverse locations.

Who is the manufacturer of your systemboard?

The sound cable is standard for the cd-rom to systemboard... that should not be the problem.

OUT devices should be speakers; anything the computer would send sound "out" on.

IN devices should be microphones, tape recorder, record player, musical cd devices, etc.; anything the computer could accept sound from. In your case, you have a separate MIC jack that is for Microphones.

WinXP has nothing to do with this either.

Your systemboard may have jumpers that are reversed or crossed. Who put together the system... and has it always worked this way?

Check your systemboard manual... or provide us with the manufacturer name and model info so that we can check further on what may be going on there.

If I were you, I wouldn't do anything as long as everything works just fine. However, if you can't find any fixup and want to get rid of it, you can disable it and install a pci audio card.
