    You shouldn't need a special driver for those speakers afaik.

    edit - came across this -plug the subwoofer into the wall and then plug the smaller speakers into the subwoofer and computer sound jack-

    Every time you re-install XP you need to re-install the mobo chipset drivers and the network drivers and the sound card drivers.

    Did you? Do you have the support disk?

    That is likely the XP install disk - there should ALSO BE a support disk with motherboard specific drivers.

    If you don't have it, then identify the motherboard model and version or the make and model of computer.

    If you have difficulty doing that;

    Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

    Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop.

    Click on the + sign beside 'Computer', then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY Top of the screen and click on 'report'.

    Note: the 'Very Top' isn't one line down, it means what it says.

    Cursor over 'quick report-summary' and then click on 'plain text' and then click on 'save to file' and change the 'save in' folder to 'Desktop' and then click 'Save'.

    Clear all your open windows and on the Desktop click on that 'report.txt' icon - this will open it in a text editor (probably Notepad) and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the 'debug' entries and delete them, then use your mouse to hilight all the remaining text then copy and paste it to here.

    For future reference: once you open Everest, click on file, preferences, report and uncheck the 'include debug information in the report' box. People rarely want to see that stuff.

    Well, Everest, usually dependable, can't find the info I need on your comp.

    Is there NO manufacturer data available? Maker, model, number. etc?

    If not, have a look in Everest under Motherboard, motherboard headings and get the chipset data under chipset and any data under multi-media re audio.

    I've just found the box with AS Rock Motherboard disk.

    AMD-nVidia. Version 1.3B (K8NF4G-SATA2)

    Is this of any help ?

    If you have the disk, then insert it and look for chipset drivers first to install.

    The sound is back on after installing it from the Motherboard disk. Thanks very much for your help, much appreciated.
