Ugh, this was quite disturbing. I finally found what he needed only problem was that in the motherboard pdf there was no Configuring Speakers page or anything so:

And scroll down to page 88.

Orange green and black, all plugged into appropriate holes on the back of the tower. My PC case is a Fractal Define R4, this does has two sockets on the top of the case labelled microphone and headphone but I've never used them. But there is no way I could connect one of the leads to either of these anyway because the orange green and black wires are all moulded together!

Right well then I would recommend you going into Device Manager and right clicking the Audio Driver, selecting Uninstall and rebooting the computer. And upon starting it should reinstall the driver and hopefully once and for all fix your issue.

Tried this but no difference! Thanks for everyone's help, at least I have better sound than when I started the query, just not full 5.1 sound!!!

Well the last thing you could try is to connect to another system to see if it is the Via HD Audio thingy or if it is something with the actual speakers.

The speakers are definitely working because if I use Via HD Deck to switch the front and rear speakers, the sound stops coming from front speakers, and comes from the rear instead!

Well the thing is that by looking at the motherboard's support page it clearly shows that the audio chip is Realtek Azalia so it might happen that it doesn't work because you are using another software and that might cause the speakers to not work as they should, have tried downloading and installing the driver from Gigabyte's page:

download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Driver/motherboard_driver_audio_realtek_azalia-ati.exe

But what does it say in the Realtek window? I mean it should indicate that you have something plugged into the audio ports at the back, at least it says that for me whenever I unplug or plug something.

And what happened to the Realtek installer that I linked to you, unfortunately I couldn't test it so I don't know but it might happen that it only installed like drivers and I guess you would need to install Realtek HD Audio Manager unless you have it installed.

When I unplug the back speakers it greys out on the Audio Manager, when I plug back in it asks me to confirm which speakers they are. The installer unzipped files onto my hard drive, so I ran the setup.exe then rebooted, no change!
