Default Re: cant get speakers to work

If the speakers were working fine earlier I don't know why they would get uninstalled. Check to make sure they are still default, right click on the speaker on the system tray and then click Playback Devices. It should show a list of playback devices (ATI HDMI Output, Speakers, Headphones, Digital Output, etc). Make sure the right output is set as default. Sometimes you may connect a device that has audio capability or use the HDMI port and it will use a different sound device and never set it back. Make sure your speakers is set to default (or whatever device you want to use).

What is "USB Audio Device"? Chances are that when you connected this audio device the PC switched from the speakers to it. Since "High Definition Audio Device" is listed as installed I think your sound card should have at least basic drivers that work.
