Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I have an old set of speakers that I want to connect. They have one jack with purple end to plug into the desktop. None of the ports on the back are purple, and I've tried plugging it into each one. No luck with any sound coming out of them. They worked fine with my old laptop and my son's former desktop (can't remember what make it was, it's now dead). Any suggestions?
You should be able to plug them into the the green jack on the back of the computer. Next go to the volume control panel, usually under start, programs, accessories, entertainment, volume control. now make sure that the master volume is all of the way up, and that the Wave, SW Synth, and CD Player are not muted. THis should work, if your computer also has an output on the front, make sure to switch the output selection to the rear, by using the software, that should be preinstalled.

Tips for a great answer:
*Turn off your Dell laptop.
*Connect speakers to the speaker control box.
The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have.
Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you
plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of
the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to
the jacks on the back of the control box.
*Plug an audio cable into the
"Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is
color-coded, it will be green.
other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.
speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power
surges. *Plug the surge protector
into a wall outlet.
*Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a
medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or
down after you turn your laptop on.
*Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is
coming from your speakers.
