New Aldi PC

  WallyD 21:53 15 Feb 2008

Just starting to use new PC with Vista
So far so good BUT no sound.
There ara four plugs at the rear FS-SS etc and I have from my old sysytem a pair of speakers and one jack plug.Crawling around I find Realtek HDm working and speakers not connected.
I'm completely lost. does this mean I will have to fork out for a different speaker system.
Go easy on your reply as I,m a rookie,and a complete newcomer to vista
many thanks.

You Speakers need a Mains adapter to work

Have you got the speakers plugged into the right connection on the soundcard? Should be plugged into the green socket.
