Okay I was recently given a used computers for my kids to play games on. Most of these games require sound! I have the speakers but have absolutely NO clue as to how they get setup. I tried to find the manual online but haven't had any luck.

:tazz: I am so lost. I have never owned a Compaq before...any assistance would be appreciated.

JBL Platinum Speakers
8th Nov-2005

Need to know more info on Pc for more detail help – but here is some general Speaker info:
Usually on back of PC but some times there are some Front Panel Speaker Jacks:

1- [Blue Jack] is [Audio IN]
2- [Lime Jack] is [AUDIO OUT] to SPEAKER
3- [Pink Jack] is [MIC IN] – Microphone

Speaker has a Power Pack that will supply [12 V - Speaker Power] –Plug into 120V Outlet
Speaker will have a [Speaker Cable] that connects Right Speaker to Left Speaker and a Cable that connects to the LIME Green Speaker Jack on PC
Speakers will have a ON/OFF Switch & Volume Control & Balance Control

Now we need to know about Sound Capability of your PC & Motherboard – whether it has Internal Support or if you need an Expansion PCI Sound Board –

Next you need to [Enable Sound] in your BIOS Settings

Here are some links that contain some Speaker Specs -
