I recently formated my C Drive and put on Windows XP Proffesional, but now my (4 speakers, 1 Sub) speakers will not work when i hook them up to my computer. When i plug in headphones or any other set of speakers in the same jack, they work fine? I called the sound blaster company and they said to check my sound card to see if it is in properly, and i did and it seemed right and also the other speakers worked on it so that must mean something. The speakers are all ALTEC LANSING please help

Nice speakers <_<

Sounds like a driver issue with your sound card. Have you installed the latest WHQL drivers for your card from Creative's site?

Are you talking about Windows Update? If so, try the creative link above, the drivers available may be more recent.

Try going into device manager and uninstalling the driver. Then restart your computer and the hardware wizard should detect a new device and install it. This will reasign its resources.

If that doesn't work, check your BIOS. There should be a plug and play OS BIOS section. Try changing it to no.

Find your sound card in the device manager. Right click on the icon and select uninstall from the pop-up menu.

how would i get into my BIOS

Depends on your computer. While booting try tapping the F1, F2, F10, Del, or Ins keys. You may also see a a flash screen that tells you which key to press (if it flashes by too fast, press the pause key). If a full screen logo blocks the screen during boot, try pressing the Esc key.
