Setting up speakers for desktop

  geek84 15:01 12 Dec 2010

Hi Folks

I have just bought a new set of external speakers for my desk top.

I have connected them up correctly (I think), but instead of giving 'normal' sound, it is making a crackling noise.

Can you please advice how I can rectify this?

Is there something I need to do on the actual computer in order to correct the sound?

Thanks in advance.

What speakers are they?
Are they plugged into the right socket/s?
On mine its just the pink and green.
Are they powered?

If it has a green fitting it has to fit into the green coloured hole.
Sounds like you have it connected wrong and all you are getting is static noise.
