Having problems with your Boston Acoustics MicroMedia Computer Speakers ?

Hi. have recently changed computer systems. My boston 2.1 system , from 2001, however has a double 3.5mm jack plug, whereas the sound card in new computer takes a treble 3.5mm jack plug. The speaker system is excellent and I wish to use on my new system. Have tried a Maplin 3.5mm stereo to 3.5mm mono adaptor plug but sound system does not work on new computer. Can I get another adaptor for the boston, or is it now obsolete?? John T
