How to connect Logitech X-540 to a laptop

I bought a creative 5.1 speaker system for my laptop but couldn`t even connect all the wires into my laptop since it only has an audio input and a mic input, however i was told but am not to sure about it that with the Logitech X-540, it only needs one input hole and even though you may not realy be able to expriance the surround effect all the speakers will work can anyone second this,

would much appreciate it

    hey fixxers thanks for the advice, I realise that laptops usually don't have 5.1 sound cards but as far as this particular model is concerned it has something called the matrix button which apparetly converts any 2.1 into 5.1, sorry if this sounds like jibberesh to those acquainted well with computers, but ain't that great with computers, so keeping that in mind would it work, also the main thing is how many chords go into the laptop, cause if it's more than one then there's probably not much chance at all of it working, much appreciate the help

Both the speakers you have mentioned are multimedia speakers and don't have Dolby Digital, ProLogic or DTS decoders built in. So if your DVD player does not have 5.1 analogue out , only two speakers will work.
Among the two the creative sounds better but like you mentioned the I ball has a remote and higher output on paper !!.
My recommendation is Logitech X-540.Check the link below.

Logitech X-540 connecting to dell dimension 3000 ???


Your problem is you have a 3 channel sound card on your dell and you bought 5 channel speaker system. You can plug the green to green and get 2.1 sound but you will have to by a 5.1 pci sound like in the link below to get the full use of your 5.1 system.

Connect DVD Player to logitech X 540 Surround System


Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

I dont Believe you can! If its the central speaker its made to be louder if look at the tech details here:
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-X-540-5-1-Speaker-System/dp/B000JJM8XE/ref=dp_return_1?ie=UTF8&n=172282&s=electronics
it says 15.4 watts for central channel
unless you know how to wire in resistors then i cant think of anything else
