Windows 7: Windows detects surround sound, but music doesn't use

Windows detects surround sound, but music doesn't use

Windows detected my surround sound system just fine and I hear a noise from each speaker when I click the test button, but in WMP or another player it only plays from the two front speakers. I thought this was solved but apparently it's not. Any idea how I can fix it?

It's onboard surround sound on my ASUS P5Q SE PLUS mobo.

Yup the same thing with me. Downloaded and installing the latest Realtek drivers. That would fix it mostly.

Dolby surround of my sound card doesn't work properly
I can't hear a proper dolby surround with my headphones. I think the reason for this is that the dolby settings of my Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card and Windows 7 are not "synchronized". I just watched a Gears Of War 2 walkthrough video, and weapon fire, explosions and talking, that came...
