Do I need a Sound Card to use these speakers on my laptop or can I use a Headphone & Speaker Splitter and run them through my headphone socket?

You generally need a 5.1 (or more) sound output from your computer but since that is a laptop I doubt its 5.1(it should be stereo), hence it will work in stereo mode even if you connect it to a splitter. However the good thing is that it will WORK!

How do I connect my Logitech X-540 speaker to my laptop an

I just opened my Realtek HD Audio settings and clicked on 5.1 sound.. then assigned the different ports.
Make sure you have the latest audio driver update for your soundcard, and go through the software options, it'll be there somewhere..
If you think you might have a RealTek soundcard, you can find newest Realtek HD audio drivers here:

Has XP support too. Install and reboot, then the 'red' realtek volume icon should appear in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
You'll find the settings manager in there.

Good Luck
