Hello, I have a question regarding the connection of a 5.1 soundsystem to my laptop which has only one 3.5mm port.
Would it be possible to use an adapter to connect the 3 speaker inputs into one port, for the purpose I need them the surround sound isn't necessary, I would only need all of the speakers to work at the same time with the same strenght. Would that be achievable with a simple adapter?

Ok so that does not have digital inputs, nor does it have different sound modes in its amplifier. There is no way to get all 5 channels to play, you can connect it to the Green connector and have the front 2 speakers play or you can buy something like this

And connect it to your laptop via USB cable. And then you will have the 3 outputs

Depends on your 5.1 sound system and if it has an all channel stereo mode. What is the exact brand and model.

Speakers model is Trust Vigor 5.1 , it's on the cheaper side of the 5.1 speakers.
