The pink socket on the back of the pc is almost certainly a part of the special card you thought you might need, so probably no need to go out and buy new hardware. Usual cause of this sort of problem is in the pc settings. Open "volume control" on the computer (right click the system tray icon, and select "open volume controls" on older Windows versions, pick it up off Start_Programmes_Accessories_Entertainment on newer versions) and check that the microphone level is turned up far enough, and is either "enabled" or "not muted" (be a little careful, as the playback and recording levels and muting are controlled on separate screens - you can switch between them using the properties box on the options menu). Hopefully this will get you going. A.

on your computer, there is a pink colored jack that is situated at the back of your desktop or at the side of the laptop. That is for microphone use. If you have a microphone , try to connect on that port... Give us feedback if this helps....

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?

I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

I plugged my Microphone in the pink slot and it doesn't work on Vent, nor does my computer picks up the microphone

Make sure the Front Pink In is enabled.

Find the Volume icon in your Taskbar (little speaker, Right Click - Open Volume Control) or in Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices. Find Device Volume / Advanced and uncheck the Front Pink In Mute box and slide the volume UP.

Where do I connect speaker to GX100?

Look at the "back" of the computer-casing.

Look for 3 similar holes (green, blue, and pink).

Insert your microphone into the PINK hole.

Insert your speaker-connector into the GREEN hole.

If you have a cassette-deck with "line-out" connectors,
connect it via the BLUE hole.

Do you have a microphone attached to your PC? They won't be able to hear you if you do not have a microphone attached to the pink plug on the back of your computer.
