    Connect the 3mm stereo cable into the headphone or audio output jack located on the back of your computer. This audio output jack is distinguishable by the lime green colour or a headphone icon.

  4. 4

    Connect the power plug into the power auxiliary jack on the back of your monitor. This jack is located near the monitor's power cord.

  5. 5

    Rotate the monitor back to the horizontal position and press the front-centre power button on the Dell Sound Bar.
