New HP Pavilion PC, can I use my old Sony Vaio speakers set?

  1. I have a new HP Pavilion Elite m9517c-b, has MS VISTA 64bit on it. The integrated sound (monitor connect to hard drive) just sucks.

    I would like to keep my old speakers from my Sony Vaio VGC-RA810G system, the speakers are RealtekĀ® AC'97 and I can still download the drivers from Sony.
    I would hate to have to buy a new speakers set, especially since the Sony set has such excellent sound.

    Would this work? why or why not?

    Yes you can use the old Sony speakers. The Realtek sound drivers are for a computers motherboard, not for external speakers... The Sony sound drivers may not work on the HP
