    I recently purchased a Dell Dimension C521 computer with an integrated 7.1 audio card. I have Boston Digital BA735 speakers from my old computer. Is there a driver I can download so that my speakers work? If not, what kind of speakers do I have to buy?

    What have you done to the pc, have reinstalled windows?
    Were they working and suddenly stopped?
    You should be able to get sound drivers from Dell's website

    I had this problem. Try going into your BIOS and in there going into Chipset configeration or something (well, just look around) until you find somethign which says like 'Onboard sound' or something. Make sure it's ENABLED and not just on AUTO... Aparently, AUTO basically means DISABLED on something like that.

    Hope this helps...
