Hi Hubbell2008
And Happy Holidays
well, as you can see depending on your audio card, and output power, and sound settings on control panel, if is all up, or down.
you can try that first. But if not work is and Audio Card, type of power output, that case you can change your audio card, if an onboard audio, place a PCI and will be ok, Creative labs models makes diff.

I have polk audio speakers that came with my old hp f50. I just purchased a new hp but can't get my speakers to work

The old speakers are not compatible. Your new computer is looking for an external power source for the speakers, the older polk speakers that came with Hp computers have none.

Igot REALY old speakers that used to worke perfectly well

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 ( 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.

Old speakers will not work with new Dell Inspiron 530

Speakers are pretty much universal. Plug them in, and connect the audio cable to the green receptacle on the computer.

Polk speakers with Windows Vista don't work

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.
