Realtek HD 1 Front Speaker Working

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

Before I get into overclocking my computer I want to first make sure everything is working as is. I've run into a problem with my onboard audio (I have a GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5). I have Logitech x540 speakers and when I have them plugged in I run into a problem with the front speakers. I have the center sub plugged in and they work fine, I have the rear (though they are apparently the side speakers I learned that quickly by moving the jack over) plugged in and they work fine, however when I have the front plugged in the audio only comes out of one speaker. I installed drivers, etc so I finally tried something. I plugged the front speakers into the rear port and told the Audio Manager I had plugged in the front and they worked fine. I then plugged my rear speakers into the front speaker jack and the same thing happened, only one worked. So my question is do I just have a faulty front speaker jack? Or am I missing something? I wouldn't be a huge deal since I can just use the rear jack, but if in the future I get a 7.1 system this will pose a problem. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

It's more than likely a bad jack. I don't think drivers would affect that.

Try going into your Sound Control Center and changing the "Channel" to "6" and the source to "5.1"

That should get sound coming out of each respective speaker; however, if you're listening to music you should change channel to "2" with the source still being 5.1

well you cant get surround sound without the HD drivers from them. These are stable ones

I'm not sure where to find those channel settings you're referring to. As for the driver, I went to Realtek's site and updated to the most recent one they have. Would that be better than that link or is that like a a modded version that is better? Also when I had my Creative X-FI there was an option to set all the speakers to "surround" so that all 5 speakers played the same exact thing as opposed to the front and center playing all the music, and the side/rear not having vocals in some songs, or just instruments, not as loud etc. Does realtek offer an option to have this as well or?

Thanks!
