post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

Just brought a pair of Logitech X-530's

Problem is that im not really achieving the fully 5.1 sound.

Does anyone know how to achieve this



My Soundcards Are:

SoundMAX Digital Audio (OnBoard)
CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device

Hope this information helps

Are all wires plugged in correctly? Double check to make sure.

Go to Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > At the bottom of the "Volume" tab there is speaker settings, click advanced and make sure its set to '5.1 Surround Sound Speakers'

While there you can click on the Audio tab and set which devices are for what, make sure the sound card you want is what is actually enabled.

Failing that, try reinstalling the drivers for the device and see if it detects the correct speakers.

Yes, reinstall the drivers for the soundcard.

There is software that configures speakers, but that is for creating virtual 5.1 on a 2.1 system and things like that. When you have 5.1 speakers you don't need virtual 5.1
