Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1610n PC Desktop ?

How do i hook up two altec lansing speakers and

\015 I do not know which wires go to which speaker and sub woofer and computer. There is a wire with two green ends, one wire with two white ends and a larger wire that comes out of one of the speakers and has a red end which I assume goes to the subwoofer. Not sure where to go from there.\015

Answers :

Depending on the sound card installed in your system, integrated into the motherboard or not, you may need a "Y" splitter adapter. Typically, the subwoofer has a black plug while the regular speakers have a green plug. The red color is a new one on me, but let's assume that it is the subwoofer. If you have a black outlet on your computer, plug the red one into that outlet.

If your speakers came with your system, HP would have provided you with proper adapters to make the speakers work for whichever speaker system you have. If you have any "Y" adapters, use them.
