Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Have a dell altec lansing multimedia speaker system. How do I get this installed onto my pc?

Answers :

These speaker should hook up very easily. on the back of your desktop there should be 3 or 6 headphone jacks. The 1/8" headphone jack from the speakers needs to be plugged into the green headphone jack on the back of the tower.
\015\012Now, depending on which of the three versions of the speakers you have power options will be one of:
\015\0121. normal wall plug that just needs to be plugged into power.
\015\0122. USB plug, if there is a USB plug coming out of the speakers plug it into any of your USB ports and it will draw power from the computer.
\015\0123. It can also have a small round plug, if it does this plug is meant to plug in on the back of the monitor near the video cable.
\015\012Once you have this hooked up they may start working on their own or you may need to change some settings in windows. Try this and coment back if you need help with the windows settings as well.
\015\012If you do need more help please reply back including both the model # of the speakers and the
Express service code on the back/bottom of your tower so I can be more specific.
