Yesterday I bought a Logitech 5.1 X-540 speaker set for a measly $48 on sale and Im wanting to hook them up to my pc for proper surround sound. I currently only have the green 2-channel 3.5mm plug connected as my pc doesnt have the black (rear) and orange (center/sub) 3.5mm outputs that the speaker set also has as I am only using my onboard soundcard. But I did find a connector that im guessing connects to the motherboard to give me the extra surround outputs. So my question is, would I be able to plug this connector to my motherboard and then connect all three 3.5mm jacks on my speakers to my sound outputs on my pc so I am able to make full use of all my speakers?
Thanks everyone for the replies. I tried plugging all three 3.5mm plugs from the speakers into the 3 sockets in the back of my pc (green, pink and blue) and even though the pink was marked as a mic input and the blue some other type of sound input/output, after fiddling round with the Realtek HD Audio Manager settings, I managed to get everything working
