The speakers themselves are probably not your problem. Some speakers use the USB connection while others use the Audio output jack of your sound card. The problem is likely with your sound card (assuming you use the Audio output jack). If you rebuilt your computer, chances are you're missing the device driver for your sound card (these are small programs that let your hardware talk to your operating system). You'll need to download the correct device driver for your exact sound card. You probably don't know the sound card make/model. You can download Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com) which will scan your PC for all hardware and software. Once you have that report, you should be able to go to the sound card manfucturer's website and download the latest device driver. You can always find out if it's the speakers by connecting them to another computer. Good luck.
I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the speakers produce sound, the problem is probably with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your soundcard or media player software and keyboard. Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the plugs are securely connected in the proper location according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker terminal on the subwoofer.
well, some DELL models, have an internal audio, and it is cheap sound card, others have problems with this sound cards, and must be replace. or if you want to buy a PCI X-FI from creative, really Rocks the sound to a new level 5.1 surround sound, up to 7.1
