Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits
Windows 7 can't recognize 5.1 speakers

Hello, I'm new here and even when I checked the forums I don't really know if this problem has been posted already and if that is the case I apologize.

I have a Logitech X-530 5.1 system and I just recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. In XP the speakers worked fine and without any kind of issues, but in Windows 7 only the ones in the front work, the rest are dead.

In XP, I had a Realtek Audio driver and I've tried all the recent updates for these drivers and nothing worked. A lot of solutions say that I have to use the "speaker fill" option or other kind of configuration that implies the 5.1 system is recognized at least somewhere, but that's where my real problem is, I don't even have that option, it's like the system has determined that I don't have a 5.1 sound system and gives me only the "stereo" options.

Does anyone have some ideas please?
