Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Old speakers won't work with new computer! :-(

\015 I had Creative Labs Inspire 5.1 Digital 5700 speakers on my old desktop XP computer. I have a new Dell that has a integrated 7.1 sound card and now my speakers won't work. :-( Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Trying going into the speakers settings on your integrate sound in control panel and see if you can set it to 5.1 instead of the default 7.1.

Also do you have other speaker to try and plug into the card to make sure the card is installed and working?
