Hi larrs, look at the back of the PC, you'll see three colored holes. One is pink, (thats for your mic), one is green, (thats for your sound/ headset) & the other is light blue, (that is for incoming signal, (you do not need). Than you'll need to setup your mic through windows.
Click on the start button, than click on control panel. Control Panel will open. Double left click on the Sound and audio devices icon. The sound and audio devices properties window will open. Click on the Voice tabe & than click Test hardware button. Follow the on screen instructions.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

    Larrs, the colors I noted are the standard for most sound cards. You'll need to look at each jack & marked in the metal next to each jack is a small mini picture showing the function for that jack. Unless you have the manual for the sound card. There is no other way to tell you what goes where. You can also turn on your speakers load media player & play some music. Plug into each jack one at a time untill you hear music.

    My best guess is the black jack is for your speakers. Your sound card has a game port. Starting from the game port the black jack is the second one. The mic jack is forth from the game port. With out the manual that's the best I can do & the internet only shows pictures that are too small.
