    Getting speakers to work

    About a week ago this pc decided to break, so i sent it in for a repair and it was a problem with the PSU so a new one was fitted.

    The problem with that is that the speakers tht i used before were the ones that came with the P and had a strange setup where the speakers power connector was a small cylinder power end like the end that goes into your mobile phone to charge and that plugged into a little hole in the PSU.

    Now on the new normal PSU it doesnt obvously have that. so i went and bought a set of logitech S100 speers that come with the normal power socket.

    Only problem is that i cant get any sound to come through and when i go to XP's sound controll panell everything is greyed out saying that thre is "no audio device"



    whats wrong?

    ohh great, when i try to extract the files i get a message:

    "error reading the file"

    rekon it would run fine withought extracting? or is it that there is some strange way of installing audio drivers that im missing?

    EDIT :- no it wont run :/


    EDIT2 :- Ok i think the problem is that it trys/ thnks that im using windows 98, as when i start the extraction and select a location (my docs) it does 1 green bar and then says "error reading the file" but upon going to the my docs location it has the files there but i dont think they all are but upon clicking the self extractor icon it says this is not for you operating system, but there are no other download choices (check link ^)

    Did you extract everything from the Zip file with "use folder names" enabled?

    there are lots of subfolders in there, including some for Win98 but not everything is Win98.

    Re-extract the files to a new dir making sure you extract folder names too then give it a go

    If it wont extract the Zip properly your d/l didnt work, redo it .

    No i think that the problem is that there is no win xp drivers which is totaly rubbish..

    on the link that i gave above, if you click the link on the audio drivers it says that it is for win98 and 2000. so how the hell is that suitable..

    Try the link 1/2 way down here

    http://forums.windrivers.com/showthread.php?t=73351

    The on-board card is the same ADI1888 and this driver has an XP component.

    Good luck!

    feel free to 'delete' all those devices listed, they'll simply get reinstalled when you reboot windows

    Also, the people who replaced your PSU should've replaced it with one that has a DC adaptor for your speakers... the place I worked, if they couldnt repair them, would have to order them especially rather than fit a generic PSU.

    ok withought removing any drivers first i tried both but i get the message after its done installing:

    "no drivers were found please reeboot and try again"

    or something along those lies..

    just to be sure its 100% ok to to delete the drivers? ill create a restore point first but it will still boot into windows so i can restore anyway?

    because if that doesnt work then i guess ill have to do a full XP reinstall as i have the CD's but then i dont have any MOB driver CD's so ill probably be stuck with no sound or chipset drivers then meaning no graphics card drivers.

    As a other solution would a cheap sound card work? or will that need these drivers to work the soundcard itself? wich has its own then.
    Because i could get a cheap £15 one from scan and if it can run without the need to install these drivers that will be a better solution than an reformat in my situation.

    But obviosly id like it sorted this onboard way first

    calm down...

    1. the drivers *have* to be installed for them to be recognised as they are.

    2. removing sound card drivers won't stop windows from working. ever.

    3. dont buy a new soundcard, if anything you could complain to the people who replaced your PSU for a lower-spec'd version!

    I am aware of the hole on the back of the psu, it is a propriety connector used in specified systems from computer building companies such as dell... my friend had the same thing when we upgraded his dell machine by replacing most of it and then realising he needed new speakers.

    On the archive that couldn't read had you downloaded the archive to your disk and then run or did you try to run from your browser becuase in this case the files are saved into windows temporary directories and the files may be getting cleared (as temporary files do) before you get to extract them. If this is the case save the archive to your disk and then try to extract.
