What kind of speaker are those (make and model)? I'm guessing they must be connected to a USB port, otherwise they would not need the new hardware wizard. Is that right? What do you see in Device Manager where the speakers should be? Is there a "?", "!", or "X" symbol?

What's that in the title about "IDT high definition audio codec"? What does this codec have to do with the speakers?

jkplaya7, it looks like IDT is a company that makes the audio chip in your PC:

You should go to Dell's website for support, enter your Service Tag and download the latest drivers for the IDT audio chip. Update the driver and see if you can get rid of that startup message and the ! in Device Manager.

I have had issues like that and a simple solution to it is to simply visit the PC manufacturer's site, download the driver (the 2007 driver in particular worked for me)and install. Note however, that you uninstall the currently installed driver before installing the new one you downloaded.

That should definitely help you out.

bisiteru. Thankyou for posting, but this is an essentially dead thread. I will leave it open for a while longer tho, just in case.
And welcome to HTG :)
