    Default No sound from the rear speakers

    i removed the Soundblaster sound card because it was too close to the video card. it's like only 2 sheets of paper of space between them. it usually makes the video card overheat. what a bad mobo design.

    so i use the onboard sould card which is Realtek High Definition Audio Device. on the speakers setup, under 5.1 setup, when i click on Test, all speakers sound and clear. but when i play musics, movies and games, the rear speakers are silent. whats wrong?

    i am using GIgabyte x58A-UD3R mobo
    i just upgraded the realtek soundcard to the latest driver, which is R2.70. i reinstalled K-lite codec. same problem.

    In the windows sound options you have to use 7.1 speaker option and untick the side speakers,then you'll get 5.1 with rear speakers working,its just the way they label things

    Right click on the jacks in the panel graphic to set options for output.

    thats right,the black one is the rear,orange is sub,green is front

    im no guru either,i dont use realtek drivers i uninstall them and just use what microsoft installs,i remember i had to select 7.1 speakers in realtek and disable the side speakers to get sound from the rear,have you restarted your pc? sometimes i lose the rear speakers if pc has been on a long time,a reboot cures it

    if you look in realtek sound software in there somewhere is an option to seperate all the jacks,that might give you rear sound

    ^^ see the yellow folder? its in there i think

    thanks man. i did what you told me and also as the screenshot above. although games and movies, i can hear sound from the rear speakers now, but when i play musics, i still cant hear the background guitar sound. i tried winamp, WMP and WMP classic, the rear speakers are just silent. it is weird.

    i guess i will have to put the Soundblaster back. my Soundblaster is PCIe 1x. i have 3 slots of PCIe 16x. and 1 PCI slot. i wonder if i put my soundblaster onto 1 of those slots.
