Since you are positive that the drivers are properly installed and there are no reported conflicts There is two other options that you can go about testing:

Verify that the speakers are set up properly

1 Make sure that you plug the speakers into a power outlet or you install fresh batteries in the speakers.

2 Make sure that you adjust the volume control on the speaker.

3 Make sure that you adjust the volume dial on the sound card (next to where you connect the speakers to the sound card).

Adjust the volume in Windows

1 Click the speaker icon on the Windows taskbar, and then move the Volume slider to the appropriate level

2 Click to clear the Mute All check box.
