Blue Snowball and Bose Speakers

I don't know where to post, but sorry, if it's wrong.

I am having a problem, with my microphone and speakers.
When I turn on my computer, the Snowball, work until I play ANY sound on the speakers (Bose companion 5).

When the sound then has played, the Snowball doesn't work anymore, and I have to disconnect the speakers, so I can get the Snowball to work again.

Basically -- They don't work at the same time.
They are both USB.

Hope there are any smart guys out there!

I would update drivers for both from manufacturer's websites, and update chipset/USB drivers and test again.

Yeah, it didn't work.. No drivers for either Snowball or Bose, and could not find any for chipset!

Everything was up to date?

Is it because they both are USB, and have their own soundcard?

they should still both work together to my knowledge. Check what devices you have set up as recording and playback devices? (right click the volume symbol in taskbar)

I can only assume they're interrupting one another. perhaps the bus hasn't got enough.
