    You are going to need powered speakers for that unit... The unpowered speakers only work on certain motherboards.

    agree with raybay...
    currently newer mobo will support only "active" multimedia speaker.... (powered).

    guess you need to buy a new one huh?? :)

    Used powered speakers work fine, and are often available for $5.00 to $10 at a place that sells refurbished stuff such as a White Elephant. New powered speakers start at $24 a pair at Wal-Mart and Best Buy... on up to superb ones for $75 to $200

    :D in this case,
    there's alots of powered multimedia in the market...
    only $$$ is the main issue for most of the case.... ;)
