No drivers for those.

Shouldn't be necessary

In reply to: ATP3 Driver

Shouldn't be necessary to install drivers for speakers. The only possible exception MIGHT be some of Creative's top tier speakers that have a Dolby Digital and DTS hardware decoder. Even those seem a little unlikely to need any kind of driver.

Generally, things like monitors and speakers don't need drivers. Keyboards and mice also do not require specific drivers for basic functionality. Any extra buttons on the keyboard/mouse might require special drivers to work properly, but that's purely optional.

The link and what you said is confusing xD

You need to take it to a shop.

In reply to: Confused

Since you can't tell the make and model, no one can tell you which driver you need.

Don't feel bad, installing Windows isn't easy.

In reply to: You need to take it to a shop.

Alright well too bad for my ATP3 Speaker's

Same issue and answer.

In reply to: Monitor Speaker's then..

Until you identify the computer make and model or the parts of that computer you will not find the right driver.

That's your sound card

In reply to: ATP3

That's your sound card not having the proper drivers installed then, and has nothing to do with your speakers.

You'll have to figure out the make and model of the sound card yourself, and then go find the necessary drivers to install.

In reply to: That's your sound card

I dont have any sound card I think,is that possible?

Here's your drivers.

In reply to: ATP3 Driver

But first you MUST install the drivers in a very specific order or you will not be successful. Your Intel

Thank's very much for the reply,
Ok the first link you gave me leaded to a chat log about a Pavillion?What do I have to note from it?

As for the order of installation,if my video card is alrdy installed,I guess I just un-install it?

In reply to: Thanks!

"Ok the first link you gave me leaded to a chat log about a Pavillion?What do I have to note from it?"

I wrote that in my reply above. Sadly if this isn't clear enough I can't rewrite it but if you print that out and take it to a service counter it may save them some time and your money to get this done.

Don't take this wrong, windows is hard to install. Not everyone can do it.

"As for the order of installation,if my video card is alrdy installed,I guess I just un-install it?"

Or you could try the order I offered, skip the video driver, etc. YOUR CHOICE. If you over analyze this you'll never get done.
