    Dont see why not. You must have a speaker or headphone socket surely?

    Read the manual that you got with your motherboard and see what connections are on the back (or you could just look), then look at the connections that the speakers have. A lot of motherboards come with a "s/pdif - toshlink - fiber optic connection" and if yours does and the speakers do then your sorted.

    They have got a orange, black and green connector colour - 3 not just the 1

    i havent got any manual

    The connectors on the pc are blue, gree and pink but the speakers are orange black and green

    on some pc's the function of the can be changed of the orange, black and green connectors. look at the installed drivers for this fromt e program menu and then sleecting advanced or listening envirionment. if you have difficulty doing this the other options sich as opening case checking mobo serial then downloading sdrivers is even ore complicated. but all that being said most mobos of past 2-3 years have up to 7.1. mine is 18months old with a midrange mobo and can get 7.1.
    also look for a square plug as you may have an optical 5.1 conection.

    They'll be the ones you need.......3 sockets=6 channel analogue audio.
    If colours don't match just look for the labelling/symbols and match them up.

    If you get any wrong no great harm done.....just no sound.
    At worst a couple of minutes trial and error and you'll be sorted :thumbsup:

    Unless they're high-ish end speakers they'll only have analogue connections.
