I just switched computers from Dell to Gateway and now my Altec Lansing speakers do not work. What do I need to do?

Its not necessarily, the difference in the computers but, the O/S. You could try updating the drivers. Try or Hope this helps

Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital BA735 speakers using XP. Upgrade computer to a N68PV-GS motherboard and have analog output for the speakers. How to I get the old speakers to work?

You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

First, make sure the speakers are plugged into the center green connector.

Second, go to Gateway's website and download the latest audio drivers for your system and reinstall them. That should do it.

Hi, I would suggest that you should check into your computer rather than your speakers. Specifically your sound card and its drivers. Try going to your Device Manager and check your Sound, Video and Game Controllers. There should not be any Yellow markings anywhere. Cheers
