I just installed a pair of Logitech USB speakers to my laptop (Vista). As expeckted, my laptop speakers now don't work, but neither do the USB speakers. I've checked all possible MUTE controls and all are off. Using Control Panel>Sound>Playback, I've set the USB speakers as the default. Using the TEST and CONFIG, no tones are going to the speakers. I've tested the speakers on another computer and they work fine. Can someone please tell me what setting I'm missing?

No, Chad, as a matter of fact only the problematic one is Vista...the other is WIN XP. I should mention that on occasion the speakers do work on the Vista machine... at lease they have, but not recently and I've made no changes.

PROBLEM UPDATE: By chance I have now noticed that the speakers work just fine if I RESTART my computer. They do not work if I come from HIBERNATION!

Sounds like the driver is having trouble restarting. See if there is an updated driver for vista. Or disable hibernation.

It's a known issue with Vista. Article here.
A direct hotfix download can be had here.

Thanks for the info, HitSquad. I got the Hotfix and installed but no lock...damn Vista! Guess I'll just have to avoid Hibernation...and wait until SP2...or WIN7.
