The pink is for a microphone and the blue is for a "line in" (much like a microphone). the Green plug is for your speakers. your monitor would only have this plug if it has built on speakers.

The green plug needs to be plugged in into either a green jack at the back of your computer or into your laptops earphone jack. And if the second cord is a USB cord then plug it into a USB port. If it is a power cord then plug it into a wall socket.

Where do i connect everything inside the pc?


Be calm, all wires only plug where they belong to and most times they're color coded.

1. Two cables connect to the monitor, one is a power cable and the other is a video cable, most of the times its VGA cable which end in a connector with 15 pins and a blue plastic cover, search for a blue rounded corner trapezoid in the computer tower, once you find it carefully instert the cable from the monitor and tight the screws that are at each side. image

2. If your keyboard and mouse are USB then connect them to any avaiable USB port (these are squared and the computer has many), It may be that your keyboard and mouse end in round conectors this are called ps/2 and look like this, purple is for keyboard and green for mouse.

3. This far you have connected most common input output, if you also have speakers connect its jack in the green audio socket.

Finally connect your computer to the power, this should be all.

I need help to to connect Monitor speakers to PC


if the speakers are built-in to the monitor then there should be a cord with a green phono plug on it---it plugs in to the green port on the back of the tower then you may have to go to control panel>sound and audio devices and make sure the volume and settings are ok

No sound from headset plugged into monitor


From the manual I found, this model does NOT support ANY audio connections.
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/1/170b1a/170b1a_dfu_aen.pdf
170B Product Features
- 17" color LCD monitor with excellent display performance.
- Dual input-accepts both DVI Digital and VGA Analog input.
- Advanced AUTO adjustment automatically optimizes picture quality.
- Wide viewing angle technology.
- 7.1 (181mm) small footpring with full detachable cables.
- USB Bay for upgrade to USB Hub.
- Optional protective cover to prevent LCD panel damage.
- Standard VESA mounting holes and optional tilt/swivel Wall Mount Kit.

But if yours does have these ports, I would suggest they are not for a headset, but for connection to the _PC_. I would suggest your model monitor has built in speakers, and the green port is the INPUT from the PC Speaker output. The pink goes back to the PC from the MIC which is built into the screen.

HOW DO I CONNAT SEAKER


Hi,

I think the issue is how to connect the speakers.

The desktop tower will have the three ports behing it.

The colours would be pink, green and blue.

You should be having three holes in the spaker box.

One says IN - a cable should connect the 'IN'  of the speaker box to the green hold in the tower which is the output for the sound from the computer.

The speaker box should be having the other hole named as 'OUT'

Connct the spaker cable to this which is the output of the sound from the speaker box or audio box.

Now enjoy your music from the speakers.

Good Luck.


Live, Love, Laugh.
