Switch on akai58022 tower speaker, it worked when I got it today and now it wont even switch on

what do you have it plugged-into for power ? it uses the 8-pin Apple Lightning dock connector. If you are using a USB adapter for that, then be aware that a USB-port will only let you draw 500mA or 1/2 an Amp of power....more than that will cause failures and damage to the USB port and the Hub even.

I plugged The MP3 in my computer tower, but ain't gettin nothing.

Try these:
1.) plug it into other usb ports. Some usb ports run slower than others. Some Mp3 players need the 2.0 type of usb port. Yours might only be 1.0 Which, in that case, get your driver updated.

2.) Go to My Computer and look for a picture of the Zen. Double click on it. Then Click 'Storage Media' .
If that doesn't work, Click Start. Click Run. Type in either D:/ or E:/ or F:/. This is the manual way of doing it. D, E, and F are the common names for external drives

3.) If it is the first time you have plugged it in, insert the CD that came with it. it will then take you through the setup and installation process

Hope this Helped!

I can't get printer hooked up properly to usb in tower

Unless there is something wrong with your hub, you should be able to plug into any of the 3 ports. If that fails, try temporarily plugging directly into your PC and see if the problem goes away. If so, the hub may not work for you. If not, try a different USB cable.
