I have a Dell desktop operating Vista 32bit with Realtek speakers. They are not working. I have checked everything, they are plugged in, have a green light on them, they are plugged into the back of the computer. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, restored the computer to a point when I thought they were working. I have two icons on the lower right corner. One white speaker with a red x and an orange realtek icon. THe realtek shows that I have no audio device installed when I open the volume control. The other icon shows my speakers working properly, that is a green check mark next to them. However when I open the properties the levels tab is blank.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
