Need driver for my old speakers

  Europa 01:05 21 Jan 2007

I have two Boston Acoustics BA265 that I want to install on my new computer but I cannot find any drivers for it anymore. They are six years old and were still working perfectly one and a half years ago but then I still could find the drivers for it . Now I cannot find any website where I can download the drivers.
Where can I find those needed drivers?

As far as I can see,you don't need drivers for your speakers,just plug them in.have a look here.

Of course I am willing to be corrected if wrong.

Look at the back of your new PC for a row of small sockets.
Probably 3, labelled Line-In, Line-Out, and Mic.

The Line-Out which is what you want (may have a green collar to the socket).

If you are still not sure, you can try each in turn. No harm if you get it wrong, simply no sound!
Your speakers will still require their usual independant power supply.

Thanks, Diemmess and SLAYER, I plug it in the wrong socket, which I thought was right as the plug was green so I plugged it in the green collared socket. Now it's in one of the line out sockets and it works.
I hate having a new computer, you've got to put everything back in it and reinstalled your faves programs, reorganise the favorites list for your faves website, then you realise that the programs don't exactly work the same way as on your last computer. If my previous computer didn't die on me, I would have kept it as long as I can.
