Windows 7: Weird sound card problem

Weird sound card problem

I'm using an audigy 2 zs, just updated the sound card by downloading from creativelab. I have a problem with the card in windows 7 though:

I like to get the treble all the way up, and the bass up a bit, it makes things sound alot nicer. But, everytime I do this, the voices of characters when I watch DVDs or play video games become really low, everything else sounds great though, its just dialogue between characters thats just so low you have to put your ear right next to the speakers to hear them or something, then music from the background is blasting loudly in my ear...the treble and bass setting never gets properly saved also, everything I restart the computer, they get reset.

anyone else experiencing the same problem? It was like this in the beta for me also...

You're having 5.1 difficulties. Or you are only using 2 speakers when the sound output needs 6 of them for how you have it set currently.

Check the settings in the driver's app for that. There are users with Creative gear. They could guide you or suggest an alternate driver.

I'm using 5.1 speakers. I don't have the center plugged in though. I notice that when I click the "test" button to test individual speakers, it is the rear 2 speakers that are kinda of "mute" and where the dialogues come from.

I found a setting for creative speakers that lets me move the sounds from the rear to the front speakers, and that fixed the problem I guess...I'm thinking this probably doesn't make the sound as good though compared to being able to hear rear speaker noises from the rear speakers where they are supposed to be coming from...

My computer that very rarely crashes at all, just started BSODed out of the blue today (get it?). I have absolutely no clue on what is going on, except for that it maybe has to do with some sort of overclocking, because when I start Windows in Safe Mode, the computer doesn't crash, or make weird...
