Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Ok so basically you have the subwoofer box which contains the amplifier for the speaker system, and two "satellite" speakers. The two satellite speakers should connect to sockets on the subwoofer box and then as you say the lead with the green plugs goes from the subwoofer to the greean socket on the PC soundcard. As long as the subwoofer is powered up your speaker system should work.
That's ok as far as the actual speaker hardware goes. Now lets look a the computer itself. Did you have speakers on the machine before, and did they work ok? If yes, and you are totally sure the speakers are wired up correctly and powered on, then we have to assume your new Logitech speakers are broken and it;s time to return them to the shop.
If you didnt have sound before .... is the computer's soundcard installed and working? Is there a small speaker icon down by the clock on the taskbar? If not then it points to the drivers not being installed. If this is the case we will need to find out what soundcard you have installed and find some drivers for it.
If the speaker icon does appear, has it got a red X on it?...if so you speakers are muted in the sound mixer. If you are on XP right click the icon and select Volume Control. The only thing that should be muted in the mixer that appears should be the microphone. If the master volume has a check in the Mute box, then click in the box to uncheck it. The speakers should now work . For Vista it's slightly different. Right click the icon again. Choose Playback. Look to see what the default palyback device is (green tick), Right click this and select the "Levels" tab. Here again you will be able to see if anything is muted.
Also check that none of the volume sliders are on minimum and that the volume control is set to a proper level in whatever media player you are using.
Well these are all the basic checks and I hope you have found this helpful. If it does seem to be a driver issue then I suggest you open another thread along those lines and we can try and help you track down some drivers.

1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.
2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.
3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.
4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.
5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.
6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.
7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.
8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.
9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.
10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...
hope this will help you solve your problem.
