When did the 1st time ctrl + alt + del there appeared the 3DSB. Then, after a time when I tried again was no longer anything.

Any help?
I'm sorry. Can't think of anything else that could be different from my settings. But try starting winamp in compatibility mode as well. I can't use my computer right now, but I'll say if I think of anything.

Something that we should know and you didnt say ?
Have you turned off Speaker Fill? Also don't use the Realtek Equalizer.

Oh and 5.1 works fine with WMP with movies but again, the rare speakers work bad.

The same. Check if Speaker Fill is off and don't use the Equalizer.

Speaker Fill is off and im not using Equalizer and still the rare speaker`s sound is terrible.
Oh well i hope Microsoft will do something about this soon.
For now i turned the rare speakers off, no use from them anyway :]
I`ll be checking this thread to see if there is another updates.

Thanks to everyone.

It did not work.

I tried several compatibility modes but still does not work. I have no luck with it.

If anyone knows anything new, you say. This is so very bad.

Windows 7

Hi all. I've just changed my motherboard. Got a good price on a Striker Extreme (old mobo, but still good for overclock), so I can no longer test solutions to the realtek issue. I have though, thought about two possibilities I would like to try.

The first will work on winamp only. It's an output plugin called VL Sound for Vista (or you can try a newer beta version at Neveron's Home Page). It makes Winamp use all channels, and I remember testing it on Windows 7, it just won't work with MediaMonkey.

The second thing is a long shot, but I'd like to know if it has any effect. My new mobo sound drivers come with the Creative OpenAL Installer which my sound card and some apps seem to use (I might have tested that already, but I don't remember). It's worth a try, just download and install to see if it does anything.
And even if it doesn't restore surround by itself, it just might make Winamp OpenAL Output Plugin work, maybe.

Share the results.
