When you say "speakers" do you mean external speakers that you buy and hook up to the computer to enhance sound- or do you mean the standard speakers on the desktop that came with it when you got it? In other words, when you go to 'sounds and audio devices' in the control panel and tab 'sounds' can you hear the default microsoft sound clips? Or are you essentially without the ability to play any sounds?
