the software is on your computer

what sound have you got realtek.nvidia or other

if you dont know and you have a pre built system tell us the name of it so we can find out what motherboard it has

you need to open the sound device one of the above tell it your using 5.1 then do a test ,

go to control panel and look for your sound device not sounds and audio devices but another one
if its realtek it will say somthing like realtek hd sound effects or say nvidia somthing along the same lines of nvidia sound effects etc

you sure you computer is 5.1 compatable

you must have more than 3 jack in sockets at the back of the pc

pink / mic
green / speakers
blue / input

now if you do have more than 3 follow below

to find out what audio device you are using type this in the run box
how to
* = click
select run
type in dxdiag * yes let it run

go to the tab that says sound
were it says device on the left
is the name of your sound device
now look for this device in the control panel
it may have a diffrent ending but it will be to do with sound ie effects , mixer ,etc

now open this and do the same as you did in the sound and audio turn it to 6 speaker input
now use the test to see if it works

keep us posted on how your getting on

what does it say when you press the sound tab after runing dxdiag

mine says
name : realtek audio sound output

and to the left it shows what driver is installed
now tell me what yours says

1 . how many jack IN sockets do you have at the back of your pc ?
should be 5 or 6

2 . you shouldnt be using the pink for mic or the blue for line in

two other jack ins are for the sub and surround speakers
