Having problems with your Creative Labs FourPointSurround FPS1600 Computer Speakers ?

Connecting creative labs fps 1600 sound system to laptop. How?

\015 Hi all\015\012I have been bought an Acer Aspire 9920 laptop. My question is, how do I connect my original fps1600 sound system to the laptop considering the only sound output socket is one 3.5mm female stereo socket marked up as headphones, and my fps1600 has 2 male 3.5 stereo plugs connected. I may well consider replacing the speaker system at a later date due to its age. Don't wanna blow my new laptop up though. I'm just unsure. Your help would be most welcome, or recommendations for a new speaker system taking ito consideration that I only listen to music and a bit of on-line gaming on laptop.\015\012\015\012Thanks \015\012\015\012Snowy\015

Hi, i recommend just using the headphone out, and it probably will not hurt the notebook, as it is not feeding back into the notebooks sound device. you may wish to do as i did, and get a creative labs external sound card. much improvement over the on-board high def sound built into my acer notebook.with all the connections you would want! as for speakers there are alot of models to pick from.i usually go with creative, but this time i went logitech- thx,dts,ect. and i am very happy. i hope this helps you make a decision on what do. good luck!glen
