Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio 4.1 only uses rear speakers

18 Jun 2009   #1

Win 7 (7100)
Realtek HD Audio 4.1 only uses rear speakers

Hi, I have moved to Win 7. My Laptop came out on XP,But i was having BSOD with the ATI infinite loop error.
I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from Realtek viz: Vista_Win7_R226
It installs ok but I only get the option of Stereo under speaker set up, nothing else. I do get sound out of the rear speakers( closest to the screen)
Under XP i got to test the setup with a buzzing bee test....

I also installed Ubuntu on the machine and the Alsa drivers gave me the option of setting the volume of the front speakers.

The XP drivers dont work.

Any ideas?
