I'm not very good at all this, but I've been searching for hours without finding a solution to my problem:
I've recently bought a SoundForce 5.1 (Trust) surround speakers set with a SC-5500P 5.1 External Sound Card. At first I didn't have the sound card so I could only insert 1 Jack 3.5mm and only 2 speakers would work at the same time.
Now however with the sound card I expected them all to work together, but there's only sound coming out of 2 of them (the other emit a very low 'pshhhhhh').
I've tried to configure the setting of my sound into 5.1 surround, but the test sounds only come out of two of the speakers.
Does anyone know how I should fix this problem? I've searched and tried many things, but I'm still clueless of what to do.
If you require more information or anything else, do ask. I'm not sure of what I should tell or give (information).
The jacks I'm using have 3 colours: Orange (center + subwoofer), black (rear) and green (front).
I've just tried some random stuff out: Putting the black jack in the green entrance (sound card) and that made these work. Same if I put the orange one in the green one, it made the center and subwoofer work. However nothing comes out of the black or orange I/O of the soundcard.
Could it be that these are just malfunctioning? (I just bought it today)

Do 5.1 sources play in 5.1? If so that rules out it being a 5.1 problem, and makes it that you need some kind of surround sound upmix to be done. I have no idea if there is anything like that for the audio on the Nvidia cards that have a sound card built into them. What you need to look for is some kind of speaker fill option (called Speaker Fill on Realtek, CMSS3d on Creative), or something like Dolby Digital Live (needs to be supported by the card and/or drivers
, and can't be just installed as far as I know).
I've found this in another thread, and tried a 5.1 wav sample. However it still only comes out of 2 speakers.
