In all the years I've been working on computers I've never dealt with
digital audio and now I've seen the same problem twice this month.

One machine runs Vista and the person uses it just to run some specific
hardware and the other is a run of the mill Win7 machine.

In both cases, the users decided after going for years with no speakers
they now want sound...and analog speakers do not work

In both machines digital audio is available but there is analog.

How they heck would I get analog enabled, there seems to be zero option?

Alternatively if I can't get analog enabled, is there a cheap digital
speaker available anywhere?

I am not an audio-type person so don't deal much with sound.
