Can I plug in external woofer and speakers into the earphone hole of my HP Probook 4520s

No. Use USB audio card like in this description (taken from Wikipedia):
USB sound cards 200px-usb_soundcard_soundblaster_live.jpg magnify-clip.png USB sound card USB sound "cards", sometimes called "audio interfaces", are usually external boxes that plug into the computer via USB. A USB audio interface may describe a device allowing a computer which has a sound-card, yet lacks a standard audio socket, to be connected to an external device which requires such a socket, via its USB socket.
The USB specification defines a standard interface, the USB audio device class, allowing a single driver to work with the various USB sound devices and interfaces on the market.
Even cards meeting the older, slow, USB 1.1 specification are capable of high quality sound with a limited number of channels, or limited sampling frequency or bit depth, but USB 2.0 or later is more capable.

If you have a 5.1 system, ask in the store for a 5.1 USB AUDIO CARD. You can find cheap ones on Ebay, but you can buy a faulty one from there, so it's safer from shop. I think you will find a good one around 30 euros.l Good luck.

Help! Only my right speaker works on my new speakers! Do I need a new sound card?

USB headphones and speakers tend to operate independently of the PC's sound card, but you can determine if your sound card is the problem by plugging the speakers into a different computer. If both speakers work on a different computer, then the problem does lie in the original computer. If so, try a different USB port, especially one that is directly on the computer, not in a usb hub.

If only one speaker works on a different computer, I would troubleshoot the cord that connects the left speaker to the right speaker. Perhaps it is damaged or not connected fully.

Hope that helps.

This post is very old but will answer it anyway. the Round 10 pin plug you were talking about goes to the powersupply that came with the speakers.the one speaker plugs into the other speaker and the double ended cord plugs into your Pc sound out and the other end goes to line in on the powersupply.

My sound system stopped working

what PC, non stated , only that old monitor
that monitor is 16 years old today, wow , 99% are dead now
long ago, dead when the CCFL lamps burned out long ago
you be lucky it works at all, a fact.
no the USB port is not sound, but they sell USB speakers and head phones that have its own sound system (CHIP_) total that replaces
the sound in your unstated PC, (but is topic 2 not #1)

lets do sound blind, I cant see your pC can I, no photos
or names or models or what cables are attached can I, now.

so sound 101: day: (forget USB for now, ok?)
1: my guess is desktop of some kind, (i use a monitor on a laptop)
2: remove all usb devices now, cept keyboard and mouse.
3: now see rear of PC, see those 3 or more 3.5mm phone jacks.?
sure, see that green round phone jack, that is LINE out.
1.5mm diameter it is, (no set of pins , no USB this)
if you connect ear buds or a real phone jack head phones this works now, (does it , bugs are 1 buck at the dollar store)

eg: click control panel of your unstated windows, click sound
click speakers, mine has many speakers to chose, 7.1, but if old PC it has one speaker click that,. (mine is fancy express sound card,with surround sound, so can yours if you buy the card)
then click tab called,sounds , see asterisk. and test button
this is the best way to test sound first. only this.
This is built in to all windows made. all.
and always works if the sound driver is present.

if the test button fails to work at all. is gray out that is windows way of telling you the sound driver is borked up, missing or corrupted, one of my PC run linux, so.... that be different...

lets say you get this far, ok?
4: lets say a real head phone works on the 1green jack. it must.
forget USB for now, that is advanced stuff that MS does not support but can function good with hard work later.
5: now that monitor or any external speakers sold are all ampified speaker,, no they are NOT just speaker with only a voice coil inside. not at all.
the monitor needs that 3.5mm cable attached,
the amp in the monitor must be accessed, just like real exteral speakers that same do.
on the monitor,here I will read your manual to you now.
so can you why not do that first??????
6:push the menu button on the monitor to get to sound volume/
the FP5012 as a 2watt amp inside that can fail
or someone reset the monitor and the reset puts volume to 0
the jack is named on mon.
1 x audio - input - mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm - 1

why not just by new external speaker kit (amplified for PC)?
spend like $10?

i found your manual, want it? push center button now.
push menu choice (OSD) 5 , for sound volume
bingo? page 15, in dah manual.
omg, its got its own button on front of mon.
its not in the OSD on this monitor as is most.

end stock sound systems.
USB is a totally different and more complex topic,
as all USB devices can be, MS even has a warning on the use of these usb sound devices, ask and can send it to you
in short MS says zero support on them ask your vender for that.

do not run onboard sound with USB sound or they will fight each other, until you learn how to control that, ask. we do it all the time here.
ok here is the V button set, below. if this fails
and buds work, the monitor is BAD.
if the buds fail the PC is messed up, (USB not used)
cost of testing $1 (buds)

v-y5lcaykkf42lwqqbpm0ein5s-3-0.jpg buds means ear buds, sold in just about all stores now.
for nada, get some keep them handy of cheap testing.

Please help me

If after connect your usb speaker cable the system it is asking for software (drivers) you have to install them to get your audio working properly. Check it out the box of your new speakers for a installation CD.

You can also verify:

Check if your audio es working properly (start >> control panel >> sound and audio devices)
Check if your sound card is properly installed (My pc >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Audio)

Motherboard sound and old speakers

what really matters is the quality of the usb speakers. check specifications such as wattage first and find reviews if possible. however usb speakers will probably not come close to separate speakers. i'd recommend buying a cheap sound card ($20 or so). these work great overall. $20 spent on a sound card will be a better trade off than $20 spent on speakers. just use your old speakers with the new sound card and you'll have plenty of power. after this i'd recommend headphones as they work great in this case. finally moving the sound card would probably work fine, but i have doubts.

hopefully that helped
