I have an old Dell Dimension I'm using because my laptop broke. I plugged in some Logitech speakers and they computer just wont recognize them. I've tried Device Manager or whatever and it had the little yellow exclamation point. It was there were no drivers or something. Help?

Well...did the sound on this old computer...ever work before you connected the speakers?

Did you run the Windows Sound Troubleshooter, available via the XP Help menus?

I'm not sure if it worked or not, I've never used it before.

Go to the website of your sound card manufacturer and download and install their latest driver for your card.

You can go to the Dell website's service & downloads section and enter your service tag number or you can download an app such as Belarc Advisor or Everest Ultimate which will tell you what specific hardware you have.
