Try re-installing the sound card drivers. You can access the sound card through your device manager in the control panel. The drivers would have either come in a CD along with your system or you can download them from the internet.

You have to find out what the speakers are rated at then go form there. There is usually a placard or sticker on the back that says what watts and voltage they are rated at. Then you have to find out what plug goes in. Or you just buy an OEM plug

Unfortunately the subwoofer supplies the power to the amp on the speakers, Once again I have the solution,
These speakers are factory molded so that the only way to open them is to break the factory seal
this can be done by sharply rapping the seam at the bottom of the speaker with a heavy screwdriver handle or something similar.
Now you need to supply power to the amp...If you do not have the subwoofer you will need a 4.5volt power supply, after removing the board from the casing find the red white and black wires connecting
the orange plug wire to it, Personally I removed the entire cord from the unit, shough you can splice in at this point if you desire.
Connect the white lead to your posative on your power supply by either splicing or soldering, connect the ground to the heat sink using the screw that is already there holding the chip to the sink. reassemble the speaker.....super glue... and you are now in business.

you'll need adobe reader to read the manuals.
