My computer can't detect my speakers

Okay, I am currently using XP and I can't get my speakers to work. They are
plugged in, have power, but the computer can't detect them. I don't have the
install discs for either my sound card or speakers. What can I do besides
get new speakers or a new sound card?

Well, First of all this is a VISTA hardware group Not an XP Group. Second
your speakers arent going to work without your soundcard working. Third, go
to the manufacturer's website who made your soundcard and you should be able
to download the install software for your soundcard. Install the software
and you should be OK

What sound card are you using? You need to download and install the drivers
for the sound card and they should work no problem.

Your computer will see the speakers IF you have the requisite drivers
installed for the sound card.

If you are not comfortable handling this yourself, take the computer to a
local PC repair person and ask him/her to sort it out for you. Make sure to
bring your speakers in with the computer.
