How do I hook up external speakers? - PC Desktops
You should have 3 small round recepticles on either a sound card at the bottom of the back of the tower, or in your system board which may be further up. These recepticles are usually green, white, etc. They may have small markings showing which one is for an external microphone and which one is for speakers or earphones. Without knowing what make or model of computer you have, it is hard to be more specific.
