I recently wiped my drive and re-installed windows xp, and now my computer won't recognize the speakers. I tried a different set of speakers with the same results, both speakers work fine, it's definitely the computer. Please help.

Since this is a fresh XP install the first thing you should do is verify if your DRIVER for your SOUNDCARD is installed.

Go to your DEVICE MANAGER under SOUND VIDEO and GAME CONTROLERS and check if you have a yellow question mark for your soundcard or if any are installed.

If any other yellow question mark appear in the DEVICE MANAGER please tell us what they are.

yeah, as Alzeimer stated it sounds like you need to install your soundcard drivers. If you post the make and model of your pc here I'm sure someone here can give you a link to the correct driver.
