Question about Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Connecting to computer

I have a set of the altec lansing multimedia speakers and don't have the manual. They are model ACS45. I rearranged my office and now can't get them to work, so maybe I am not connecting them properly. Could you tell me how to connect them?

Re: Connecting to computer

First, check all cords of course. Make sure power is in an outlet that works, green cord with the green port on the computer. (Check that you are plugging the right colors together, if so look below)

If you could tell me what type of sound card your computer has, I can guide you through.

(Sound cards)
There are PCI sound cards or/and Integrated sound cards for most situations. A PCI sound card would mean that you have a physical card which would look like this, with more or equal speaker jacks :

Or if you have an Integrated sound card then the back of your computer might look like this (Sound portion includes the 3 female jacks furthest to the right):

Hi Jerry
What Model....?
Using a mobile phone camera would have helped in this situation.
Before taking things apart

I'll be very surprised if someone has the same speaker system in bits somewhere
An electronics guy would trace the wire back to it's source to decide what it's being used for.
Good Luck
