My computer had to be restarted fresh and windows was reinstalled. This is the second time this had to be done. Every time this happens, the computer does not recognize the speakers or anything plugged into the USB connectors. The first time this happened, some guy fixed it, but I have no idea how he did it. Sound will not come from the speakers. I went to the audio section under the control panel and my speakers do not appear. How do I get the computer to recognize that I am in fact plugging things into the audio/USB connectors? Thanks for the help.

Do you have a sound card installed or do you use on-board sound? If a sound card, did you install the drivers for it? (I know nothing about on-board sound).

Our friend is having reload problems. Were your speakers plugged in and turned on at the right time during the reload process? Have you tried unplugging them, then plg back in, and then asking windows to find new hardware device? Is your usb port working? Are your speakers separate or in the monitor? I was guilty of this; failed to plug in... check your wires my friend.

Also, you do have to reload every program and hardware device AFTER you reinstall windows. You may have lost your OE mail too if you didn't find it and back it up (sorry) also your .wab file. This is one situation when it is good to use hotmail or yahoo... OE is not nice to backup and restore... I can't tell you how much data I have lost...

Are you by any chance using an e-machine with OEM software XP that creates a virtual FAT 32 d: drive? I do - had to reload it 6 times in 12 months. I removed Defender for good, I think it corrupts files. Also not sure Win live one care is able to handle the fat 32...

Good luck.

BlindAmI >>

Could we have some more details regarding your computer?

1) Whether its a laptop/desktop
2) What motherboard do you have
3) Whether or not you have a seperate sound card (As Queen-Evie, pointed out)

The reason for asking this is that its likely that you'll need to download soundcard drivers and usb drivers in order for your computer to work as you want!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
