How to Install Speakers on your Computer/Laptop!!!

At the rear of your computer you will find the I/O, this is known as the In/Out of your computer mainboard.

Here you will find various input and output ports, these include USB, VGA out, DVI, HDMI, Firewire, e-sata, audio in/out, PS2 for mouse/keyboard, etc...

In this case we want to connect speakers to our computer, so we want to find the audio out 3.5mm jack. It is colour coded GREEN. Insert the speaker connector into the GREEN 3.5mm jack.
If you have a sound card installed you will need to plug the speaker connector into it's GREEN 3.5mm jack.

Below: The I/O of your Computer Mainboard, the red elipsis indicates the audio in/out. We are going to be using the GREEN one shown!

If at this point you don't get any sound from the speakers you will need to install the audio drivers for your specific computer mainboard/sound card.
Use the CD provided with your Mainboard/Sound Card alternatively use Google!

Happy Listening!

acer monitor no signal

If your monitor has various input sources, make sure it's on the correct input source in the main/input menu. If that's not the problem double check the cable for bent pins also make sure if you have a video card with DUAL dvi outputs that your using the correct one.. as the other one might be secondary and non-functional. It's possible but highly unlikely if you unplugged the DVI cable while the monitored was still powered on it could have damaged the video card of the computer or mainboard of the LCD monitor. When in doubt try another DVI cable if all else fails.. if you have another DVI monitor (thats a known good) try that also to make sure that the video card is not the problem.

DC Power jack broken

Looks like you're right, I did not see any Lenovo replacement jacks either. You might try looking at the IBM Thinkpad jacks for various models to see if you can find the same jack.

I've repaired 3 laptops with this problem. Rather than replacing the jack on the mainboard I wired a "pigtail" to the mainboard and then zip tied a female connector to the back of the laptop itself. I did this because the mainboards were pretty beat up from the heat the original jack produced as it began to loosen. The end result is not as pretty as the original jack, but it absolutely takes all the stress off the mainboard. Those computers will never have this problem again.

Good luck.
