Im using the Asus Rampage III Formula mobo and I just bought the Genius SW-5.1 3005 speaker system for gaming purposes. I plugged in speakers to subwoofer and into the audio outputs on the mobo and only one output is working (2 satellite speakers are working, the other 3 speakers and sub are not). Am i just not plugging these in correctly or does the mobo audio only support 2.1? Or is my mobo malfunctioning?
Go into windows audio settings (right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar --> playback devices) and select the device hooked up to your mobo audio device. The click configure in the bottom left corner and make sure it is set-up to output 5.1 audio.
