    on your laptop you got only one output and one input

    the output is for headset and may be used with stereo speakers, or 2.1 system, means there are 2 speakers for left and right and a sub.

    but now comes your problem.

    what you are plannig to buy is a 5.1 speaker system and means it got 5 speakers and a sub.
    that means it have more than one connector. it haves tree connectors:

    one for sub and the center speaker,
    one for the front speakers left and right,
    and the last one for the rear speakers left and right.


    you will need a 5.1 usb sound card if you still want to have the logitech x540 speaker system and use it on you're laptop.
