    Hooking Up Speakers


    Hi,

    I was hooking up some old external speakers to my newer laptop. the old external speakers has a green jack which I think is a audio line-in cable? My laptop doesn't have line-in or line-out jacks. Instead it has a microphone and headphone jack.

    I can sort of hook the green jack into headphone jack, it plays but it doesn't fit all the way inside.

    Would this damage my laptop or the speakers in any way?

    Thanks

    :)

    As long as you don't force the plug beyond its first stopping point, you should be ok.

  5. Or you can go to Maplins which is a computer outlet and get a USB adapter with mic and headphone jack outlet.
    I brought one the other week it works well or if you just want for your speaker they do one with a single outlet or you can get them from e-bay or Amazon

    +1 +1 +1.

    Just adding .......................
    Assuming your laptop is Bluetooth capable.........
    I don't know if you care to spend some money.
    If you are in the position to invest for a new external speaker, I would like you to consider buying a wireless/Bluetooth ext. speaker.
    I bought one about $80 Canadian, and it works great, but depending on what type of music you play, it won't bring the house down though.
