Windows 7: audio jacks

audio jacks

So I just got a new dell studio xps 9000 and it has no audio jacks at all. I have a logitech thx system but there is no where I can hook it up. I was wondering do the new computers have their sound output from the usb drive? So would this mean I need to find a converter from the three jacks to one usb?

thanks for any help you can give me

There are some speakers that can connect to your computer and power up via a usb. In term, these speakers also include an integrated headphone (audio jack) jack on the side of the speaker itself.
This is strange though....What kind of computer doesn't have audio jacks

Also, I have an xps 8000. I found that the head phone jacks are actually in a hidden compartment. Is your desktop black? There should be a sliding plastic black (or whatever color) door that you can lift up and find hidden several usb ports and audio jacks.

I'm chatting with Dell customer support now... hang tight.

Okay, it looks like the audio jacks are on the front panel, near the top. Take a look here: http://www.dell.com/us/en/home/deskt...00&cs=19&s=dhs

See the pictures on that page.

Jonathan, I envy you . You are a very dedicated person *wink*
Though, it is unbelievable to have a computer without a audio jack. I still think its hidden behind a slidding door on the desktop.

These three colored jacks are usually found at the back of the system. THere should be six jacks in the back, each for a speaker or microphone device I think
