All right, well fellas, my situation is that I reformatted my computer a month or two ago. I needed to format it, but I couldn't find my original format disks, so I used my Dell disks (I have an Acer Aspire desktop PC and a Dell PC) and I got it registered under a new code that Microsoft Tech Support gave me. Now, when I reformatted, my speakers worked fine, but now after about a month or so, they have stopped working. When I click on something that has sound it makes a Microsoft alert noise and won't play the sound. The speakers work great, but I don't have the monitor disks that enable them to have that driver work. It's unlikely that I'll be able to find the disks unless I scour the earth for those motherfuckers. Also, because my computer's an older model, I can't find a supplier that has an Acer Aspire Windows XP Format disks that play on a 32-bit driver for them. I've searched the internet and all it can tell me to do is to delete the registry keys that contain the sound control and when the computer reboots, it'll re-install the drivers. But when I attempted that, the registry wouldn't let me delete it.
I'm in a bit of a sticky situation here boys, and I'm in need of some assistance. Can anyone help me out?
