I recently added a new Computer Desk and the Audio Cable from the Powered Speaker to the Computer Out Jack is not long enough. I can,t find an Extension Cable. Is there such and how do you define the type of Plug and Jack for the cable?

Re: Need Audio Cable Extension
You would be looking for a Lead that has a 3.5 Ml Male Connector Jack to plug in to PC, and a 3.5 Ml Female Connection on the end in which you will plug your PC Speakers in, that will also have a 3.5 Ml Jack on the end.

tried to hooked the audio out of your laptop in a powered pc speaker just to ensure if the problem is with in the lap top. if you can get sound from the laptop using powered pc speaker that was mean the problem is with in the monitor. by the way have you been tried to replaced the audio cable?.
Check that the speakers are powered on (assuming they need power) and that the volume control is set at a mid-level.Next check that you have the speaker 3.5mm jack plug inserted into the correct speaker socket on the audio card - there are normally three sockets, one each for a microphone, speaker or headphone output and for line output - these are often colour coded on newer systems and if so, match the colour of the speaker jack plug to the speaker socket.If the speakers are connected by USB instead of an audio jack plug, then check to see if the USB device has been recognised automatically - if not, then you may need to find any software that came with the speakers and install this before the system will recognise them.Finally, open the system audio controls and check what device is selected for audio output - ensure that this is the same as the speaker device you are wanting to use.One further test, if you have the speakers powered on and they have a standard audio jack, you should hear some feedback sound if you touch the contacts at the end of the jack plug with your fingers.
Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your
computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini
plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red
to red and white to white.
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory
speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER
jack on the powered speaker.
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A.
2. Connect the other end to your computer's AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card
offers more than one option.
3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat
steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers.
1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker.
2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet.
3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.
It could be that the input jack is or cable is damaged. The input to the right speaker is from the left speaker via speaker cable. Check that wire and try a new one. All speakers are susceptible to some type of interference. Make sure the cables aren't tangled and free from other powered equipment.
if you want audio as well, it will depend on what kind of audio connection your tv has next to the VGA (computer monitor) connection. If it looks like the normal RCA audio, (red and white plugs) you will need to get a male headphone jack (to plug into your computer headphone or speaker out jack) to stereo RCA cable so you would have a headphone jack on one side of the cable and a red and white plug on the other side. Now if your TV just has what look like a headphone jack next to the VGA (computer monitor plug) you will need to buy a male to male stereo headphone jack cable. for both of these, just make sure the cable you get it long enough, or buy an extension.
The headphone jacks on laptops do not provide a DC voltage to your speakers only a low powered audio output that will not provide enough power to drive most desktop speakers. If you want to do this you will probably need to get a set of speakers with an external power source. Then it should work fine(providing a headset does work in that jack).
Looking at the manual
page 3 of the pdf says
Connect the lime green 3.5mm stereo cable (hardwired into the right
satellite) to the lime green input labeled ?FRONT? on your sound card.
So your right speaker should have a cable with a green end that plugs into your standard audio out jack
If you have multiple outputs and don't know which you are set up for, then turn the speakers on and up, put a long song on, and plug that green wire into every jack on the PC!
If you've got no other issues you'll hear something!
