Surround Sound speakers not surrounding!!!

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Surround Sound speakers not surrounding!!!

OK so I decided to get a 5.1 system for my comp. Got the soundcard and it works. Got the speakers and they all work. But here is the thing. I have 5 speakers and 1 sub. The main 2 speakers (front), work, and so does the sub, but the others dont work at the same time. I can either have the center one on, the back ones, or the front and the sub. What can I do?!? Im sure this is just a setting because I tested all the speakers, and they all work. Please help!

1) ensure all wiring is correct

2) install all drivers

3) install any software that came with it

4) use software to check settings

All wiring is properly done
All drivers installed because the 2 speakers and the sub work
software installed but its just called Creative Media Source
BTW the speakers are a set of Logitech X-530 and the Sound card is a SoundBlaster Live 24bit model number SB0410. The speakers didnt come with a CD...should they have one?
What do you mean check software to check settings?

Problem resolved. turns out there WAS a small driver i dindt install. Kinda limited the speakers to 2.1 by default, so I changed them to 5.1 :). Thanks Dodger. :thumbs:
