I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the
speakers produce sound, the problem is probably
with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard
installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound
card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your
soundcard or media player software and keyboard.
Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the
plugs are securely connected in the proper location
according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th
front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire
with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker
terminal on the subwoofer.

I have an HP Pavilion M50 monitor with polk audio speakers. I don't have the original power supply for the speakers. I have tried several 9v power adapters and none of them seem to work. What power...


if it requires 9volts then it should be good. no problem with your windows vista. its just that your speaker wont power on. maybe you got to have the wrong polarity. try to recorrect the polarity. i mean put the negative to possitive and positive to negative. if the wire has a color put the black to red and red to black.

Have a polk psw50 with a bad driver( voice coil drags) looking for a good replacement or having it reconed. Have emailed Polk, no response yet. Any recommendations?


You might get luckier than me at tapping it with a hammer. I ended up ordering a replacement from Parts Express. 8 inch, 4 ohm subwoofer, pick something in your price range, but don't go crazy. Many of the current subwoofers have dual 8 ohm coils. If you get one, connect the coils in parallel.

My polk audio desktop speakers aren't working after reinstalling windows xp on a new harddrive. Do I need to install a driver if so wich one


You have to reinstall the audio driver of your motherboard. You can reinstall that by using the cd that came with the motherboard. If you dont have the cd anymore, open your pc and look for the brand name and model of your motherboard and download the driver from the internet. Check also for other devices if needs reinstalling the drivers. You can check it by opening the control panel, click "system" then click "device manager". There you can see if all your devices are working perfectly. If you can see a question mark beside the device, you have to reinstall the driver for that particular device.
