:whistling:

Had to reinstall Windows and seem to have lost other hardware as a result (i.e. scanner, printer and speakers). I'm rather concerned as I don't remember the AOpen computer speakers ever having to be installed in the first place, but have now lost all sound. (I gather I can visit the HP website to try to reinstall the printer).

Any advice?

Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have just done the install; however, I still have no sound! (I did receive a warning from Microsoft that this product had not been tested for compatibility with XP so I was advised not to continue with the installation).

Is there something else I could try instead?

Thanks ...

Yes, post the make and model of your computer, if you have a sound card then if you can please post the model of the card. I will get you the necessary drivers for your hardware once i get that info.

Anyone know why the Realtek programme isn't working? I tried to install it twice, but was met both times with, 'This device cannot start. (Code 10)'

Details:
AC97 Audio for VIA ® Audio Controller
PCI bus 0, device 17, function 5

[i]Update: just fiddled around with Windows and succeeded in installing the speakers properly (through Device Manager). Thanks![u]
