Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
How do you connect desktop speakers to a flat panel tv. and what type of speakers would you recommend. please reply promptly
You just connect the green plug to a mini 1/8 line out or use a stereo RCA male to mini 1/8 female adapter (radio shack or cyberguys.com) and connect your desktop speaker to that.
You can also connect surround sound speakers if your flat panel TV supports it. There are two ways, one is with the digital out, usually a black socket, to a digital input, also usually black. This is pretty much the same as a coaxial connector. Other options are to use a fiber cable but the difference is negligible and the headaches severe. Many flat panels have the good old green socket, which is analogue and most surround systems will take an analogue input. The difference in surround sound is quite considerable using analogue.
The most affordable surround sound speaker systems are made by Creative Labs and include models less than $200 and usually include a remote. Which ever you choose, you want the remote so you can mute when the phone rings and also control the volume as well. I've used newegg.com as a vendor for these systems extensively as you usually have 30 days to return as unacceptable for your application. Avoid Ebay.
Let me know if this has only opened the door to more questions or if you have all you need to know.

the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make
sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line or use a can of compressed air specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer
if its a desktop swap the speakers around if one still does not work its either a faulty speaker or the speaker connection
hope this helps
