    I am not running VISTA and the solution to download a new driver is for VISTA. Would that work for Windows 8 as well?

SOURCE: my pc can't find my speaker

You probably haven't loaded the sound driver yet.
To find out goto control panel, then system, then devices
You might see a ? next to one or more devices
If so, the next step will depend on if you have the driver on cd, or you will have to download it.
Write back....

Please rate helpful if it was!

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Windows 8


I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

I bought a new HP home computer, but I would like to use my previous Monitor which is bigger and is a Dell, so when I changed to my Dell monitor with my HP hard drive, there was no longer any sound coming...


new to you , its very old, and officially retired at HP.com
its 14 years old today. yah, old. last one sold at $30(fleabay)
what ever OS (windows) it runs its not safe on the internet.
windows 2000? or XP?

called legacy now. (means zero support at HP and MS)
no dell monitor stated, endless kinds over 20 years. made.
what makes you think the dell has speakers/ lacking the 3.5mm
phone jack
on it. did you forget to plug the sound cable in?

the hard drive has nothing to do with sound.
one can boot to a LINUX CD and play music all day long.
a fact. same with booting to USB thumb drive.(linux)


why not buy some external speaker, for $10 or at Goodwill(tm)
stores. dirt cheap or heck , upgrade to good sounding speaker
no monitor can ever do that. well.
good luck and next time tell the helper what DELL that is.
the model is on the sticker on the back most times.
