Check that you are not trying to draw more power than your USB Circuit can deliver.

Possibly try a rear USB port

Showing my lack of knowledge, I'm surprised you need drivers for your speakers?
My older Altec Lansing speakers are separately powered.

The sound card needs drivers, whether it is integrated with the motherboard or a separate card.

If your speakers plug into the computer like mine, it is a 3.5mm stereo plug.
The speakers have their own power supply and a wee green light by the on/off switch on the right hand speaker.

Have you looked at the volume control in Programs> Accesories > Volume?

Also on the task bar there may be a little black blob which gives direct access to the Volume Control

based on all this you need drivers for your sound card. You haven't said what the computer is - laptop/desktop and sound on motherboard or separate. If you've previously had sound working, have you perhaps reinstalled the operating system?

In any event for more help the make/model of computer and motherboard and, if separate, sound card are needed. Good luck

If not USB powered ~ Where is their power coming from?

There should be a Mains cable
