Boston BA735 Digital Speakers Dont Work on new Dell computer

\015 I just bought a new Del Inspiron computer from the Dell salesman that used to sell Gateways. My old Gateway had excellent Boston BA735 Speakers so I did not buy speakers with the new Dell. I found out that my speakers are digital and will not work when I plug them in the Dell, something he did not tell me. The plug to the computer is a standard analog plug, but the plug to my sub woofewr is digital. Any simple solution? Is it possible to insert the sound card from my old Gateway into my Dell to make the speakers work? Do I have to install new drivers? Will I have to uninstall my old driver?\015

Answers :

You can try to install the sound card--Vista should pick it up, but you'll still probably have to have a driver disk for it.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure that you not only power it down, but you unplug the power cord and press the on button to discharge any stored charge.
\015\012
\015\012When you insert the card, be sure that you'v touched off on either the powersupply or the frame to the hand that has the card in it. Then insert the card. (A static electricity spark can be 20k volts, low amps, but it can destroy both the card and the motherboard if you aren't careful.)
\015\012
\015\012The XP driver might be a problem, but check for the numbers on the card before putting it in and do a search. You may find some additional Vista drivers.
\015\012
\015\012There are a couple of after-market cards that use a digital out, you just have to look for the right connector.
