Found 24th Aug 2010
right, i have just made a nice little pc for my sister-in-law out of an old pc i had.
when i took the new pc to her,i removed the old pc and found that her speakers power supply is on the power pack next to the pc power (where you plug the pc in to the mains)

you plug the green 2.5mm plug in as usual,but theres also another (this plugged in next to the main power supply for the pc, theres a little hole on the back for it)

anyone know of any usb adapters or converters i can get to re-use the speakers,or are they just to old to save/cant be saved.

cheers folks

just bin them and buy new ones, you can pick a pair up for like a fiver

this is probably a female power connector simply plug a kettle lead into it.

how is a kettle lead going to fit a male 3.5jack plug

yeah i missed the second paragraph end line, but have to admit seen lots of systems some with ac passthrough(which i thought it might be)and only 1 other with this type of psu/jack supplied dc out so i wouldn't exactly class this as standard.

Do you really not read at all. I said standard that speakers take which … Do you really not read at all. I said standard that speakers take which it is. No where did I say it's standard on the PSU.This sort of thing:



i read as much as you know about what is standard, i have 5 sets of speakers in this workshop, non of them take the type of connector you show, standard?
if u spent a little time learning about how not to come across as a knobhead, you might learn something about this kit.

cant you take your speakers in to ur school and try them on their power suply, if they work check the spec on the unit, or try a multi voltage unit, they have about 6 different size plugs on cost about £5
