i recently bought Compaq Presario SR1639UK Desktop PC its got Integrated 5.1 sound card, and i have creative speaker which are 5.1 .. but i just cant make all of them work at a time only two speakers will work with the woofer !! even whe i go to the audio setup where it checks each speaker individually !! , it wont give any sound from the other three. Iam pretty sure it uses Realtek AC'97 soundcard !! any suggestion guys !!

Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices, Advanced button bottom right, set to 5.1 might help.

Control Panel\Sounds and Audio Devices\Speaker Setup\Advanced select your setup from the drop down box.

Should be 5.1 not 5.0

Do a search on your computer for a program called AVrack or Rtlrack.

Does this bring up anything?

It's a configuration program that's on some AC97 audio machines. It may be a long shot...
