my speakers are connected to a subwoofer and the black subwoofer is connected to the rear black plug-in. There is a popup saying that this black connection is the rear speaker out. The blue monitor plug is connected to the rear green; popup says it is the front speaker out.

This way I have sound from the monitor's speaker but my speakers don't work at all Why? Many thanks for your help

What is the make and model of the sound card that you are using?

Is you speaker system a 2.1?

Usually the blue jack is an input.

Have you tried plugging into the green output jack?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What kind of computer is this? Does it have HD audio? If so the outputs can be configured anyway you want through the software. What kind of Speakers are you using?

will check all these details but it all used to work ok until I moved them to another room (because of silly Virgin broadband) and back again. Green connected to green wouldn't work. What else could I do with black (subwoofer; make advent, 6 mths old, same for speakers, comp: acer aspire M1100, also 6 months old). Connected and disconnected everything a few times because of problems with Virgin which kept telling me that the disconnection problem was due to my gear. My gear my you know what. Last time I moved the whole system to the living room I was so cheesed off I forgot to pay attention to the original connection. Now my speakers don't work.

I know sound card OK. Thanks a million for all your help in advance.

You could go to the speaker makers website, see if there is an instruction manual for
your speaker model.
