No Audio Device

by Dude37 / October 15, 2009 9:31 AM PDT

Hi All...

I have 2 Asus computers, and the Logitech speakers I have work fine with both of them... They have a plug and USB connector...

My new Bose companion 2 speakers don't work... They dont have USB, just a plug... when I plug them in, the control panel says No Audio Device...

Obviously my sound card is fine, do you know why the Bose are not recognized???

I have searched for drivers on, and google based on my motherboard models, and when I find something, it wants me to pay for driver robot... No thanks

Anybody know of a good free site for drivers??? If that is the problem

Speaker issue

Are they powered speakers? Assuming they would be since they input via mini plug, without A/C power they wouldn't work. If so (plugged into A/C) and still don't work, possibly bad A/C adapter.

Well, I have 2 pairs of the companion 2, and yes they are AC, but they are both brand new, so I don't see the plug being bad on both of them
