HI - I am new to purchasing speakers for a computer. I purchased logitech z4 speakers to hook up to my laptop. I didn't realize the audio input cable was not going to connect to my laptop. Before I drag the whole thing back to the store, I have to think there must be some sort of converter to go from what looks like a cable "plug" to something that would fit my labptops network slots. Sorry, I don't know termninology. I tried not to call it a "thingy". Thank you, Cynthia
Your laptop should have a jack where you can plug in a pair of headphones. Virtually all modern laptops have this jack. You can also connect your Logitech speakers to this headphone jack. You may need to adjust the volume on your laptop fairly high in order to get proper sound from your Z4 speakers. Make sure the volume control on your speakers is turned down all the way when you connect them to your laptop's headphone jack, then turn it up to your desired volume level.

Usually you can purchase audio cables for speakers and sub-woofers from any or authorized PC outlets. Just explain to the dealership what you want to connect it to and they will shoe you the right "jack" to buy.
If you're running a tower, you jack it into the speaker or audio output on the back of the unit. If you're using a laptop, you run the speakers by plugging the 1/4" stereo plug into the headphone/audio output jack on the front or side of the computer.
You have to make sure you're hooking up the input to the Logitech speakers- refer to your manual for details, or read the fine markings on the speaker power supply and audio input jacks.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
If your TV has a headphone socket, then plug the speakers into there, then (you have to do this for some TVs, but not others), go into the set-up menu and turn the headphone volume to 70%. Switch on the Z4 and sound should come out, assuming all connections are correct.
This is normal, when you go from HDMI to DVI, the sound does not get transmitted. You need a separate cable to go from audio output on the computer to Audio input to the TV. There are speaker (headphone on laptop) jack to RCA audio cables, you could also go with digital audio or even optical out if your computer and TV both have the input and outputs.
Hi there, Mr Dan
well, you can change, the coaxial cable for another optical? is better, if you got an optical input. or optical output to input on your SPK. that should work.try the test with a movie on.or sound continue.
You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue -
z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd.
If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible.
"Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier.
Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier."
Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
