System won't configure to 5.1 speaker set up

  Whispering John 12:03 30 Jan 2005

I have hp pavilion mx70 computer and purchased lst year a Labtec 5.1 surround sound sysyem.
It worked perfectly for 12 months but now only works on the FR and FL speakers plus sub woofer.
When I go into sound manager it shows set up as headphones. ven when I reconfigure to a 5.1 system the other three speakers dont work.
I have swapped speakers over to test that they all work. This confirms that the 5.1 system is fine and the problem lies with the computer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you tried right clicking on the volume Icon on the taskbar, select, adjust audio properties then speaker settings/advanced and set to 5.1 from there?
