I recently got a new computer and installed windows 7 on it.
I then went and took the sound card out of my old pc (windows XP) and installed it into my 7 pc. All the drivers
installed fine and the test shows that all the speakers were hooked up properly but when it came to playing my music i only got the front 2 speakers, not the surround or centre. I know its not a problem with the speakers because i tested each individual channel, and I know its not the card beacuse in my XP pc, where i took the card from, it turned the 2.1 music into a virtual 5.1 stream for me so all my speakers played.
Is there some option or setting I have to change to enable a virtual 5.1?
