Problem with outlets for speakers

\015 My mother-in-law just bought a new Acer AM1641\015\012desktop and she asked me to set it up for her\015\012and when I was ready to hook up the speakers\015\012I discovered that it had 6 or 8 outlets on the\015\012back and I'm not able to read the small lettering in the manual or on the back. Could\015\012you tell me which outlets to use, thank you.\015

Answers :

Most systems have the ports color coded ... for the speakers try the green one, if you have a mic you want to use it usually goes into the pink port. Hope this helps.
