New hard drive - Speakers don't work

I recently installed a new hard drive as my old one was damaged. I couldn't retrieve anything from my old hard drive so I had lost some items of software (for example, I had to buy a new webcam as I no longer had the driver for my old one).
However, for some reason my speakers do not work with my new hard drive. They don't need a driver, do they? I don't remember installing one when I first bought them.
Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
Thanks

If you reinstalled your sound card driver, you may have need to change the speaker output from line out to speaker output or vice versa.

You do not have to buy new hardware if you lost the drivers.


Usually the drivers are avilable at the manufactures website...goto his website, download the drives and install.


A better alternative...you Ubuntu...no viruses/togen...or whatever...I don't know! and it's very stable.

Thanks for your help guys. I did buy a soundblaster sound card a few years ago. Would there have been a driver with that? i don't remember one but then again, I didn't install it.

Yes, Soundblaster sound cards have their own drivers.

Go to their website, download the driver appropriate for your sound card and operating system, and reinstall it.
