Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

Hi, I have these. Always unplug the Sub before changing the wiring around.
You should have a dual cable. Plug one end into the Sub's Audio In and DC Out (the one that looks like a power plug goes in DC Out, the one that looks like a headphone goes in Audio In). The other end of the dual cable goes to the Satellite that has the volume control. Plug into DC and Sub. Plug a cable with headphone plugs on each end into the SPKR jack on each Satellite. Plug another cable with headphone plugs into either Input 1 or Input 2. The other end goes to your computer's audio out. I don't have the original of these two cables so I can't tell you what they look like. If one is longer or thicker it should be the one to go between the speakers. Set the level control on the Sub about 1/4 up. Plug the Sub in and play some music. You can adjust the Sub level and the Bass and Treble to your liking. I have my Bass & Treble straight up, Sub at 1/4. You can use one of the inputs for your computer and the other input for another device like an iPod without having to unplug things.

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.
