    I cannot find any instructions to connect my Acer external speakers to my HP Prodesk mini desktop. Seen other forums where people have had the same problem...

    Hi, and welcome to TSG.

    If the speakers use a 3.5 mm audio cable, make sure they are getting power and are plugged in the headphone jack on the front of the computer. Beyond that please tell us the model number of the Acer speakers.

    The Acer speakers is not the problem, those have worked with my bigger desktop. This is the new compact HP desktop and nowhere does it show where you connect any external speakers. I saw two other posts who had the exact same problem. Btw, how do I tell if it is a 3.5 mm cable?

    Are you sure about the HP model number? I am only finding information on ProDesk 600 models and EliteDesk 700 models, but not ProDesk 600 models.

    The ProDesk 600 Mini and EliteDesk 700 Mini both have 3.5 mm (1/8 inch diameter) jacks labeled on the front panels with headphone symbols. They accept 3.5 mm stereo audio plugs as shown in the attached photos.

    EDIT: These mini computers do not have rear audio output jacks for speakers. You need to connect speakers to the front headphone (not headset) jack.

    Look at where you plugged them in on the bigger desktop. Now look on the "new" computer and see if it has a port like that.

    Give us a picture of your speaker's cables.
