alright the problem basically is that when i play a game, watch youtube videos, basically everything the 2 side/rear speakers dont play anything, the center, 2 fronts and subs work fine. but when i test the speakers in control panel they work fine, they also work if i plug them specifically into an ipod. is the problem my sound card, im pretty sure its not a 5.1 in fact i don't even know what its called
if you have realtek hd integrated audio there is an option in the sound manager... i cant remember but its just a box and you tick it and you should have sound through all of your speakers. if i remember there is a little description and its not hard to find.
