Hi, I am working on my mothers decrepit old computer, and I have run into a problem. The tower refuses to recognize that the speakers are plugged in! The first thing I did was hook up the speakers (Model No. A215) to my Ipod to make sure they still functioned properly. Everything sounded good, so next I searched for the driver. On the Dell website, I typed in the Express Service Code, and was presented with a page stating all the drivers for this model. There were no audio drivers, so after searching a little more I found someone with a similar problem here. I downloaded the driver and began installing when an error message popped up with the message "The audio driver files do not support your computer hardware." Could I get some help?

Can you check device manager and post the audio driver description with the exclamation point?
