my 5.1 not working in win 7 32 bit
it is working good in RealTek control panel but when i am play a
music its font 2 speakers only working, but the other one not working...i Have install the latest realtek HD audio driver for win 7 from reaktek site.._R244_x86. I have the gigabyte mother board. and creative 5200 speakers. on board sound card.
If the source is stereo, then the output will be stereo. Win 7 does not upconvert from stereo to 5.1 or 7.1. You will need either a sound card that does that, or use a digital output into a home theater.
