I have set up Koss desktop speakers properly (I think) -- they are plugged into the power outlet, plugged into each other, and plugged into the CPU of my computer. But there is no sound at all coming out -- just silence. Do I need a special driver for these speakers, or is there something simple I'm overlooking?

Are this powered speakers connect to the same mains power socket as the computer. If not you may be getting an earth loop which causes a humming sound. Connect these speakers to the same power outlet, if you have not sufficient outlets use a power board.

Hope you have all of the skinny you need, good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly
On the back of your computer tower (that thing with the power button on the front) you should see three small headphone jack looking thingies, with colored bands around them. Your speaker cord plugs into the green one, if you have a microphone, it goes in the pink one.
Your speaker set should have a wall wart type power supply, plug that into any convenient outlet, and plug the other end into the proper jack on your speakers.
The volume knob on your speakers is also an on-off switch, turn it on.
I have an owner's manual for that system and would be glad to copy the diagrams for you. Additionally, I think that you need red, blue and green wires from the back of the Koss to the inputs on the TV.
