Are you plugging the sound card straight into the speakers, or straight into the sub, or into a receiver?

1) what program are you using for music?

2) is the sound card setup program set for 5.1?

2) he did say he set it up in control panel ... provided the sound card is installed correctly, this should do it. And soundblasters are pretty well recognised by windows.

no, i was referring to the program that comes with the card. not control panel. a completely separate application.

Dude I have the same set up. Goto control panel, Audio HQ (make sure you have the latest drivers from Soundblaster website, this is important http://www.soft32.com/download_4034.html) then goto speakers in this section and make sure it is set to 5. Then all of them should work. Those speakers frigin rock to man
