I have an ASUS A8V Deluxe and These logitech Z-5300E 5.1 Surround Sound speakers http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1091099783220&skuId=6800296&type=product. I just reformated my PC and i installed the audio drivers from ASUS's website and everything...all the speakers are plugged in and i have the computer set to 5.1 surround sound config but when i run a test only the 2 front speakers work!! Whats going on!? Anyone know how to get all of them working?

Hmm, make sure the input on the back of the sub is put to 5.1. In the sound control panel, make sure you have 5.1 speakers selected. Also check the motherboard manual to make sure you have them connected to the correct plugs. I don't use the onboard sound on my A8V so I'm not sure what else to suggest.

also, what are you running the test with? music and such only has 2 channel sound, so be sure you are using something that is 5.1

Sound like a prob my sister was having with her onboard sound, we fixed it by playing around with setting for around half an hour. Turns out we just had to select 2.1, then 5.1 again. This worked for a while, but then it stopped and we couldn't get 5.1 spund again. So pissed with it we just installed a spare Live! I had lying around.
