    Hi...speakers are OZAKI. I bought them with my old computer. They are plugged into the same slot as on the old computer, with power cord, switched on, showing power, but no sound coming out of them

Hello there:
I dont think that you would have to download any drivers unless you had to do it with the other computer.
what you may want to do is make sure you are connected to the right plug in and you can even try to play a cd and move the plug in from one hole to the next and if still nothing try this
go to control panel and go to sounds and then make sure that the sound devices are there and are not muted but if you get the error saying no audio device than you will have to download a
sound driver in that case i highly recommend downloading vinal ac 97 this is a free sound driver and mixer utility that works verey will with various operating systems ok and if all of this still does not work you may want to try a new speaker ok?
I hope that this is very helpfull for you
best regards michael

Usually yes just google the types of speakers you have and type in google like this: drivers for "this is your speakers brand name .etc" download , that should help you hope this was helpful:)

    ok make sure in the audio section in the control panel that you have them there if it will not pop up there then its a driver but if nothing of all that works then it might be something else with the speakers hope this was helpful:)

I lost audio or sound on my 3 years old computer,i installed a new sound card, and the wizard wont find the hard ware. please help. Thanks


You need to install the driver for the new audio card. It should be on a CD that came with the new sound card. If you did install the driver from the CD then it may be too old and not functioning properly with either your OS or other hardware drivers that are newer.
You need to get a newer audio driver for this hardware device. You need to figure out who makes the audio card you bought (it should be on both the card itself and the box it came in). Browse to the website of the maker of this card, and go to their support/downloads section. You will need to enter in your model number and then you can download the newest version of the hardware driver. Download this driver and install it on your computer. You will be prompted to restart your computer, you need to do this to get your sound working.
Your speakers will now work!

Where can i find the drivers for this speaker system


Drivers arent needed for BA735 digital, but you DO need a digital out plut. If these are Gateway speakers that came with an old computer, go to Gateways site and MYSUPPORT and enter that computers serial number. You'll need the sound card model number or name and you can download the software for the hardware. These speakers are fantastic but have given me fits trying to connect to new computers. I have not found digital-out software (including Realteks) to work at all.

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

Try re-installing the sound card drivers. You can access the sound card through your device manager in the control panel. The drivers would have either come in a CD along with your system or you can download them from the internet.

They need installing


The problem is that you have no sound driver installed. Think of the sound card inside of your computer as a car, and like a car it can't work without a driver. A driver is basically software that controls the hardware. However in order to further assist you I need to know the make and model.

Let me know and I can assist further.
