When I use the speakers I generally unplug my headset so there is never a conflict.

Hi Bling

Stormy's proposed the correct solution.
Try setting the realtek as default>configure the setup to check if it works i.e. 5.1
Plugging the headset in with the realtek as default should cause no issues.

Keep us posted and regards

Connot configure my sound to 5.1 in windows 7-sound-fixed.jpg

Setting the Speakers as default didn't work, but when I checked(ticked) the "Give exclusive mode applications priority" the sound is crystal clear but only on 16bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality).

Thank you for all of your help everyone.

I feel like I am getting somewhere with all of the problems, sorting them one by one, but with a lot of help from people like yourselves, the real experts...
Thanks again.
