Fairly easy really. You'll need to buy a jack to jack AUX cable. Single point for stereo needed and a headphone jack on the laptop.
The left hand and right hand speakers are slightly different. The right hand speaker only has a cord coming out the back of it and no AUX points.
The right hand speakers has a series of small jack points.
The first hole is the adaptor plug that has to be plugged into mains socket, then the 1st hole marked SPKR has to have a jack to jack cord going from that speaker to the other one. The last two holes marked "A" and "B" give you the option to put two jack to jack AUX sound cables in.
To get it into your laptop, you'll need ONE AUX jack to jack cable and fit it into the point at the back marked "B" and then through the headphone socket on your laptop. You will then have sound.
Make sure to remember to put the system on by the push button switch on the back of the left hand speaker. The speaker system also has another rotary switch on at the front of the speaker.
I've had these speakers for well over 10 years - brilliant sound quality and very durable. Hope it has helped you!

How can my laptop charger fit to computer speaker?


Please do not modify your laptop charger to power your speakers. The laptop charger probably has too high a voltage and amperage output. (USB chargers don't provide a large enough output.) The Altec Lansing ACS40 speakers need a 15V 900 mA power transformer; the coaxial power connector has the positive voltage on the center pin. The model number on the transformer is 4815090R3CT . This is available through Amazon.com and other vendors. One vendor is http://www.emtcompany.com/altec-lansing-4815090r3cac-power-supply-charger-adapter/1010666.html .

I hope this helps.

Is is possible to install altec lansing speakers


It is possible to hook up these speakers to a laptop according to this brochure:

http://www.alteclansing.com/images/spec/vs4121%20sell%20sheet.pdf

Now this manual shows those speakers being hooked up to a computer but laptops have the same outputs as well so here it is:

you'll need adobe reader to read the manuals.

Altec lansing


I had the same problem. After numerous calls to Altec Lansing they sent me out a new one. The new one doesn't have the same connector on it. I called tech support only to hear that they discontinued the 621 and don't make parts for it. Sorry, you are probably out of luck.
