    Install the driver for your soundcard. If you are unsure of which sound card
    you have, use Windows Update (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com) and se if
    there are any hardware updates.

    Not a good idea to get driver updates from WU. Go to the device
    manufacturer's web site or the computer OEM.

    It's not the speakers. You have to install the drivers for your sound
    card or onboard sound chips. If you have an integrated motherboard the
    sound card drivers will/should be on the cd that came with the board. If
    you dont know what sound card you have this often helps ID it:
