I have a pair of CSW Ensemble II speakers; I did this so I could strip the sticky Nextel paint off and refinish the cabinet.
You first need to remove the grill by using a paper clip hook to pull the wire mesh grill off; you will then see screws to remove the drivers and get to the electronics (the drivers have a bit of glue to hold their frame in place but gentle prying popped them free.)
You can pry at any grill hole, but there is a larger one at the top/center edge that was specifically made for this purpose; work around the top or bottom edges so scratches will not be visible. The grill is held in place by sticky tape at the 4 corners so it's easy to re-install.
Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!
if your computer came with
a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel
administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and
game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall

If you can get around to the back of your PC they should be colour coded, green to green (speakers) pink to pink (mic) etc,
If they are not colour coded, play something and then get back there and move the port one by one until you hear it playing. You will definitely find the mic port easily as it should have a image of a mic stamped onto the metal by the port, its the speakers that are a bit harder to work out from the images
Let us know how you get on :)
If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.
