    So my speakers will not work on my computer, it isnt the speakers fault because they can play music out of my ipod fine but they just wont play any sounds on my computer.

    I think it is a problem with my sound card but i dont really have a clue, I'm sorta guessing

    but when I go into device manager I have yellow question marks next to something called PCI Device and PCI Simple Communications Controller. These sound quite important, are these anything to do with my problem or not? I just basically need my speakers fixed because i'm annoyed-ish.

    PS. step by step instructions will help because otherwise I won't understand. Please help me, it's killing me

    I hardly ever install those drivers... depends on what your system configuration is as to whether or not they are what's stopping your audio. Is your system new? and does your system make beeps with the internal speaker instead of Windows sounds? System specs are nice.

    - Pull the audio card out. (if it is not onboard)
    - Uninstall the drivers with the yellow question marks
    - Find latest drivers for your sound card. (or motherboard if onboard sound)
    - Reboot
    - When Windows detects device, point it to the new driver.

    Hope that works

    Look on your motherboard for the make and model number. Then do a google search for the drivers for your motherboard. Install those and you should be good to go.

    Be specific guy... I want to help you but you are being so damn vague that I really can't.

    I have gathered that you have an internal/embedded sound card and the driver got corrupted? Go to your manufacturer's website ie support.dell.com and find your machine's model and download the correct driver bundle. Usually you will get an .exe file to install them for you, but it may just be an .inf that you install via the device manager, which I assume you understand it's usage.

    All computers come with some sort of sound card, whether it's embedded or a full scale PCI Soundblaster kinda thing. Most are embedded though. If it's corrupted physically, you will need to buy a PCI replacement or ship your PC back and let them replace the Motherboard.
