Windows 7: 5.1 Speaker System problem

01 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Recently purchased Logitech X 530
I have another set of these speakers on another computer with XP but I cannot get these speakers to work on Windows 7.

Help on how to get these working for windows 7 is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

The sub woofer works, just not the rear and center speakers

Please fill up your system specs to help you out.

What is the sound card you use? A 5.1? Is the cables properly plugged in?

On some motherboards (like mine) the audio jacks do double function. For instance on mine the line in is also the output for the rear speakers. I have to change the settings in my Realtek Control Panel for all my speakers to work. If you have already done that you may want to look at the sound settings in control panel. Something else I've noticed is I have to check the Speaker Fill option in the Realtek Control Panel or I only get stereo playback in Windows Media Player when I play any of my MP3 files.
