Windows 7: Cannot set 5.1 config with SB Audigy 2 ZS

Cannot set 5.1 config with SB Audigy 2 ZS

This is one really weird problem.

Yesterday i found out that my rear and centre speakers were producing really low sound. After a restart, Windows lost the ability to set it on 5.1 speaker config. It would just revert back to 2.1. I did a reinstall of the drivers but no luck.

I don't know what the problem is. It's extremely weird and i hope someone here can help me.

Intel i5 750 @stock

Go into "Control Panel>Sound" then click on the "SB Audigy 2 ZS" down the bottom of the window there you will see "configer" click on that and then you will be able to configer X.1 soudn you want to select.

I have this problem too. Of course I do know here to configure x.1 speaker but it will revert back to 2.0 automatically.
