Can't get any 5.1 sound to work.
I have tried googling this problem and have tried what feels like (but obviously isn't) every sollution posted!
I bought a computer second hand, and all in all it's an upgrade from my last computer, except for one thing: I can not for the world get my speakers to play any kind of 5.1 sound.
The sound drivers installed are Realtek High Definition Audio 22.214.171.12402 - but this could be a mistake on my side, as for all I know, I'm not even supposed to have them installed. As the newbie I am, I just assumed I needed the Realtek Audio Manager like I did on my last computer, to get the 5.1 sound to work, and this is probably completely wrong, heh.
So how can I get the 5.1 sound to work? What information do you need to guide me? And how do I find that information?
If the motherboard type is needed (I read somewhere else it might be) then I assume it's this: ASUSTeK Computer INC. 2A73h 1.01
When I go to the Control Panel, there is no Realtek Audio Manager there. Clicking Sound, I get the following information:
Realtek High Definition Audio
Clicking Configure, I only have ONE option: Stereo. No 5.1.
Can anyone help me figure this out? I really want the option to listen to sound from all my speakers (I don't even care if it's pure 5.1 sound, as long as there's music/sound coming from all the speakers I'm happy!)
Thank you in advance,
