I've just bought my 1st pc,it is a
Multivision Ionix SP-28OOA,It says
it has nVidia 5.1 surround sound
audio.Today i was giiven Creative
Inspire 5.1 5100 speakers and i
have connected them but i can only
get sound from the subwoofer and 2
speakers. The 3connections from the
subwoofer are black,green & orange
but on the PC they are green,blue
& pink.I am a novice so any help
would be appreciated.

Depends on the source of the sound - from what are you trying to get the sound out of each speaker?

Check that Windows is set up for the correct sound - ie go to the control panel, and then "sounds and audio devices" in WinXP (Sounds and multimedia in other Windosw I think) and on the volume tab choose advanced - in there is a drop down box to ensure that your pc uses 5.1 surround sound.

click here for the MS checker for 6 channel sound - download it and see if it plays ok for you.
