Windows 7: No bass option in sounds

No bass option in sounds

I just got a computer from my father and I have a simple speakers setup with two small speakers and a small sub woofer. With the new computer I cannot hear anything coming out of the sub woofer, when I try to change the set up in sounds, the only option that comes up is for a basic two speaker stereo setup it is not giving me an option to change the set up to reflect what I actually have. I am running Windows 7 and the sound card is a VIA AC97 Enhanced audio controller. Please help out I don't want to have to take it back to him after just getting it. Thanks

Setup for a standard 2.1 Powered computer speaker system (two speakers plus a bass woofer) is one connection (green speaker jack) to the Powered woofer speaker and the two speakers are fed from the woofer. This is considered a "stereo" speaker system in the setup.

How is your speakers set up and connected?

My speakers are a 2.1 and they are set up just like that one cord plugged into the green speaker part but the sub woofer get little to no sounds and when I go to configure my setup in the control panel I am not given an option to set it up with the sub woofer it only shows the two side speakers. The sound card was acting funny and he moved it to a different spot because it was acting funny with a USB port, when it was in the other spot it identified the sub woofer in the configuration sections of sounds and now it only shows the setup for the two speakers and nothing more. I know that probably sounds confusing but it is the only way I can think of the describe the problem, any more help would be great. Thanks

The bass, in a 2.1 speaker system is amplified by the amplifier in the bass speaker. If there is no bass, it sounds like a problem in the speaker system as that is where the bass frequencies are filtered and sent to the bass speaker.

As noted, there is no special setup for a 2.1 speaker system. The "Stereo" is the proper setting.
