can't get rear sound from 4.1 speaker setup

asus a7n8x-x mobo with latest drivers/bios. it has onboard sound. i have creative 4.1 speakers but i can only get sound out of 2 front speakers and subwoofer. under control panel, sound and audio devices, volume, speaker settings, advanced, it is set to surround (shows diagram of 4 speakers and sub) and i apply this. do i need to change speaker setup to 4.1 anywhere else?

i have this problem.when you test the speakers they all work but when you play stuff just front two work.i assumed it was because you only have stereo output from musioc but if you use the 4.1 creative card you get the 2 channels front and back but not with the intergrated sound from the motherboard.just out of curiosity do you get anything from the rear if you run a 5.1 dvd.darren
