Re: Speaker not working after installaton of XP
It may not be a problem with the speakers but the the sound drivers of your PC. Verify that your Sound, video and game controller drivers are installed correctly/completely with no yellow or red markings in your Device Manager.
If yes, try to uninstall and re-install using the original CD that came with the motherboard/PC as driver source. Alternately, you can download newer drivers if available.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information. Pls include brand/model/version of your PC or motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.

If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)
The kind of speakers usually don't effect what drivers you have to use. If you have your motherboard cd then you can install the sound drivers from that cd. And, if you still are unable to find them in the cd then please tell me the model no. of your PC(and/or model no. of the motherboard).
