5.1 Sound

Hello,

I am newbie on this forum and i really hope that you guys will be able to help me. Today i bought 5.1 speakers Microlab FC730. First i had problems because i couldnt simply use 1 cable for INPUT, and now i am using 3 cables.

But there is one bigger problem. Windows doesnt want to detect speakers as 5.1 so i am able to use Stereo only. I tried to install last drivers, rebot computer but nothing helps.

Please, take time for me. Thanks.

P.S / I hope that there is no english mistakes.

Thanks for your answer. I was googling a bit and do you think it might be because i have just random one sound card on my laptop?
