Creative make excellent speaker systems, whilst you should easily be able to configure your sound card for 5.1 reproduction through its Properties.

I was assuming a sound card - it could just as easily be onboard sound.

If you go to:

click here

and download SIW (System Information for Windows) and run it from the Desktop icon after installation, you should then go down the list to PCI and click on it.

A list will appear. If you have onboard sound it will include Onboard AC97 Enhanced Audio Controller or words to that effect; if it's a sound card that will be listed.

Clicking on the onboard sound or sound card line will bring up an information panel.

In both cases you should/may have the means to call up an audio menu to configure the number of speakers being used (2.1, 4.1, 5.1 etc), graphics equaliser etc.

Otherwise go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices and go through the tabs to check and set the configuration required.
