Check with a set of earphones whether it is system problem or a problem with your speaker equipment.

After some tinkering around, and discovering the new Realtek HD Audio Manager interface that I had never seen before, I got it working. It has to be plugged into the blue outlet behind my computer. And it only works when I select Front Speaker out, or Headphones.
But I'm not sure if any sound is coming from the woofer speaker now. There is definitely the bass, but I'm not sure if there's supposed to be any sound coming from the big round speaker..

The speakers work properly on his phone. Do you have an HD.Audio jack on the front of the pc as well? If not, go to radio shack and purchase a female end of the 3.5mm jack and hard wire it to the port on the mobo.

I do have two jacks on the front of the computer but they are only green and pink - no blue one and it seems that it only works in the blue jack. See response above^

Yeah, I saw that when my post hit. That's kinda strange that it's working on the blue jack and not the green.

Any idea about the sound from the woofer?

Should be two places to adjust it., on the speaker set itself, and maybe setting the speakers up as 2.1 and checking settings in sound properties?

EDIT: meaning, the eq settings, or bass level in settings.

Should be bass only as it is a subwoofer.
