The main problem i can see is that the sound card drivers MIGHT not be compatible with vista. Go to the manufactures website and download the drivers for vista.

Hope that helps

Let us know

It's not the speakers u need, it's the sound card model.

Start --> Run--> dxdiag and go to the sound tab. You will get info on your soundcard
