No sound from sound sticks ... they're almost new

'Just had a new hard drive put in my iMac. I' reloading all of the previous programs on the old drive and when  I went to connect my sound sticks: they don't show up as a audio output option in systems preferences ... which it did when I first hooked up the sound sticks.
Is there a missing driver to download? or equal or what !? 
Stumped.

If it comes up clean It's either your CD player or hard drive dieing.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?


Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Need drivers


It is not the speakers you need drivers for but the computer sound chip. Check out the motherboard makers website and download the driver for your particular motherboard. reboot and they should work OK. If not they are probably faulty

Bose Companion 3 series II speakers aren't producing sound (imac)


from what I've read, the imac has a 3.5mm (.138) jack while the Bose jack is 1/8 (.125). very small difference in size (.013), but enough to cause problems.

Driver


there are no drivers for the speakers, you need an audio driver installed for you sound card.

http://support.dell.com

Your system will either have an on-board sound card (Sigmatel normally) or a soundblaster expansion audio card. (If the audio jacks are in an expansion slot below the video card, then you have a soundblaster.

Soundblaster drivers are found at http://www.creative.com

Garbled sound


Your Codec is damaged. Reload your drivers for your sound card. First uninstall the old ones. Moving your non working speakers and they play fine says they are good. I have a problem that you have new speakers and the problem went away. Drivers do not care what speakers are on the other end. It only produces output. Now that your second pair is working correctly, put back the Harmons and see if the problem comes back
