Sound test failing, X-Fi Elite + Z5500

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK so I have my speakers hooked up via analog and the problem is when ever I do a test in windows or the X-Fi software sound only comes out of the left and right front speakers. I have all my speakers hooked up properly because the built-in test in the Z5500 control pod shows they are correctly setup.

This is when I have it set on Dolby Music or Movie. When I change to 6Ch Direct (on the Z5500's) I get sound out of all 5 speakers except the rear left and right are backwards. I don't get the subwoofer.

Changing the speaker configuration in Windows or X-Fi doesn't really make a difference.


help?

Change the physical connection when you have it in 6ch direct so that they aren't opposite?

I had the previous speakers to yours the z680's with a audigy 2 card, it might help if you reinstall the driver

I think there is a program called drivercleaner that completely removes them if you can't seem to get rid of them all the way

I reinstalled the driver and tried different versions.

The rear speakers are connected properly, I would not want to swap them just to get the right sound in a test.

Perhaps this is an overall driver problem and there's nothing I can really do.
