Hello
I've got an old computer which I've reformatted recently. I can't find the drivers for the speakers as the computer manufacturer no longer supports it.

Is there a generic speakers I could use for the speakers?
Thanks.

Speakers don't generally need drivers, unless they are USB speakers. You will probably need the drivers for the soundcard. Do you know what soundcard you have? Sometimes this is integrated in to the motherboard, if you know the make and model of the motherboard we can check. Alternatively if you have the make and model of the computer we may be able to determine the soundcard from this.

I'm not sure of the make of the motherboard/soundcard. I tried using the speakers on a newer desktop, doesn't work either.

Sounds like faulty speakers then if they don't work in a different PC either. Just to be sure you could try them in an MP3 player (iPod) or something.

Yes if they are speakers with a 3.5mm jack, then try them in another device such as an iPod to ensure they are working.
