Ok, so I bought my computer used and refurbished, but it is less than 3 yrs old. Now the monitor and speakers are a little older. Aureal Vortex 8830 to anyone who knows what that is....cause I sure don't.....lol. I think that is my driver. (found it in Device Manager, advanced)

What speakers you use make no difference.

Go to the device manager and see if there are any yellow or red warning icons in any of the categories.

Update the drivers in any that show such warnings.

Do you see a speaker icon in your notification area near the clock?

What exactly do you see in the "Sound Video and Game Controllers" category and do you have an onboard sound adapter or separate sound card?
