    Altec Lansing's product support page doesn't recognize the ACS 54 speakers!

Hi Avsandrick
Happy Holidays!
Doing a driver search don't help much, so I recommend 2 things here, wait until MS, make a Service Pack Cd, for Vista, or go to the Altec Lansing Page and see if for your particular model, there are drivers for vista.
other than that, a generic sound driver, could fix the problem.

My altec lansing bx1020 is not working after i upgraded my pc to windows 7.

The problem is not with your speakers.
When you upgrade to a new Operating System, sometimes your hardware is not recognized correctly by the new OS.
In your computer, the sound card is not installed correctly. Search for Windows 7 sound drivers for your sound card and install.
If you think the problem is with your speakers, you can check by connecting them to another computer or an audio device.

I have Altec Lansing speakers on a recenty upgraded PC using Windows 7. I have no sound. The sound jack guide advises me to plug the jacks to colour ports that don't exist. ????

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager sound video and game controllers could be a yellow question or exclamation mark ! ? or red x right click to re-install drivers if these drivers are not suitable on the home page you should see the download software finder under that there will be a list platform, category sub category price from the category drop down list select drivers then from the price drop down list select free or which ever applies to your need

How do you set up altec lansing speakers on a windows vista computer

If they have regular speaker jacks (1/8th inch) it should be a breeze. Just plug them to the corresponding audio jack, depending if you have a stereo or surround sound setup it may be one cable or a few, and vista should use your existing sound drivers and output the audio to the speakers. Otherwise you can adjust your speaker settings in control panel, which you shouldnt need to. Hope it helps. It can get tricky, let me know if it doesnt work out.
