One of the wires probably leads to the CD-rom. After formatting your computer, you need to load the sound driver back. Check the stuff that came with the HP. The diskette or cd should be there with the correct drivers.

The wire plugs into the back of the CD rom. You may need to go to driverguide.com or the manufacturer's website and down load the Drivers for the sound card. HP may have the drivers if you go their website and click on Support and Downloads. Look up information for the HP model 8160. It may contain the drivers you need there.

Also go to my computer - right click
Go to Device Manager- is there a yellow exclamation on the sound card?
if so that means it definitely needs the driver loaded.

Hope that helps/

There is usually a spare wire hanging off the same wire that runs from the cdrom or burner/ or dvd to the sound card. it is just spliced in there in case the sound card has a different connection. This is normal, and most cdrom devices now come withthat type of wire.
Good luck!
