Has Win7 changeed the sound ports?

Just curios. I installed Win 7 retail on my pc - no sound with the socket I normally use (the middle green one). However after reading several posts on here I decided to try the speaker jack in the other ports and sure enough when I plug into the blue port it works. Any ideas whats happening?

Anthony, the default playback device is set for headphones ... go to your playback devices and set it for speakers... G'morning..

Are you using only stereo speakers? If so, living with it wouldn't be bad.


Isn't there a setting for auto-mapping the ports?

I use the optical connector out to my sound system, so I don't play with it, but on my X-Fi it is called Flexi-Jack.

I am only using stero at the moment but I was thinking of hooking up a 5:1 as I want to use this particular system as a media centre
