I originally had a computer built for me, it had windows vista but came with the free windows 7 upgrade for when it came out. My speakers and sound and everything worked then. When windows 7 came out, I used the free install and everything worked and such, but now I want to go back to windows vista, did a new install and now my speakers do not work. I have the drivers up to date, but no sound comes from my speakers, and I think they just are not being recognized at all. I tried plugging them into the front and the back. One last thing, I did delete the windows.old file, in case that matters (this is a auto backup from the previous version of windows).

*I do not want to go back to windows 7 if at all possible, I want to use vista, as before everything worked with vista.
