    Can't install audio drivers

    My computer came with a disk with audio drivers for it, but when I try to install them, it saids that i need to be on win 7. I mean I can hear sound just fine, but without the drivers I can't use my mic. Any help would be nice, and thanks in advance.

    You can can get them at their site.
