View Full Version : Bose Speakers not Installing! (XP)

July 10th, 2009, 03:58 AM
Hi everyone-

My problem is that when I plug in my Bose Companion 5 into my USB port(s), the found new hardware box appears (in the bottom right) and then gets cut off by the found new hardware wizard.

After I either cancel the wizard, or click all the way to finish in the wizard, the initial found new hardware box then says '...your hardware did not install properly and might not work.' Ive tried plugging into different usb ports, and I am working with a brand new computer.

What is the problem here!?

Thanks for any help..

wrong forums :D

you can do this in ubuntu

"For those of you that can't even get a sound out of them, here's what I did. Go to System-> Preferences-> Sound. Select USB Audio for all the dropdown menus except for the Sound Capture. I still haven't figured out which setting there will make my mic work, but that's a different, much smaller issue."
