Just bought a Acer Aspire X1700 No Manual came with the computer.. Acer Website has limited instructions on recovery and other items but the speakers have a USB plug and another plug.. There are multiple plugs in the back of the computer to add a home theater but I don't know which of them to plug the speakers that came with the computer into..

Re: connecting speakers to Computer
It's usually the green plug that you hook up speakers to. If you look closely at the sound card area of your computer, you will see little pictures telling you which one is for the mike, line in & speaker.

Hi avidriving, Please follow the Instructions: Step 1: Click "Start" menu.Step 2: Click "Programs."Step 3: Click "Acer Recovery Management."

Step 7: Click "Start" to restore the computer to the default factory settings Tips & Warnings:If you are unable to access the Start menu, use the recovery CDs that came with the computer or visit Acer's website (see Resources below). Always make a back-up CD before restoring a computer to factory defaults. Resources Acer Website. Hope it helps. Thank you for using fixya
by default the hard drive should have a recovery partition. go to the support section of the manufactures website and you should find detailed instructions of how to boot to the partition. if that option has been corrupted, you can purchase a recovery disc directly from acer. i've ordered nearly a hundred for customers in the past and have never paid more than 20.00 for a disc or disc set.
below you will find a link that will allow you to enter your product serial number and direct you to the purchase of a factory recovery cd/dvd.
In most cases the woofer plugs into the speaker which contains the power adapter plug, the green plug goes into the PC's audio out (usually a green plug on the back of the unit). When the USB is plugged into the machine the OS should plug and play the new hardware and may ask you to insert a driver disc if applicable.
After the OS has identified the new hardware and installed it you should be able to test additional audio out plugs if you are unable to hear sound from your first choice (again, ideally the green plug). There should also be a line out plug which may work for your purposes also.
If you are still having issues please post the model of your speakers so that we may look them up...
