Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers
I just bought a ectivia audio 5.1 sound card for the speakers however i still only get sound from the front 2 speakers and not from the back or middle one. i disabled the audio device on the motherboard but still no luck. the motherboard is a abit nf7-s
You may be closer than you think; the way 5.1 is decoded or a 5 channel stereo is processed dependent on the active mixer device. If you don't already know you are able to see this in the device manager or by right clicking your vol. icon and adjusting the available properties. Soundcards in nature can be tricky sometimes, if things aren't done in exactly the order both windows and the hardware mfg. need them to be done in (which neither provide a fool proof method for)things can be frustrating. If the upgrade sound device comes with lots of software you may want to make sure you know what elements you really want to have manage your sound. Most times better quality playback software will manage the hardware as it sees fit for features such as 2.1, 5.1, 7.1, pro logic, thx, and dts which aside from gaming, super audio cd's, and dvds 5.1 will not be active in its true form. Unless you are for example playing a dvd that is mixed w/ this than the best you can expect is 5channel stereo, and thats only going to happen if you have the proper mixing device loaded. Even in 5.1 you will not always here the rear channels as they are only for effect like during gunshots, explosions, and jets fling overhead. Dialog is mixed primarily through the center only. DTS is the best way to test you setup,find a title that is mixed in dts make sure you select it in the dvd setup menu before you start the 1st scene. You need to be able to support all of these things to make it happen make sure all your playback codecs are updated to todays standards or you will never no what you missing, These are the things that make my 40hrs.during the 9-5work week so let me know if you have any questions

Tips for a great answer:
1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.
2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.
3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.
4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.
5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.
6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.
7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.
8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.
9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.
10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...
hope this will help you solve your problem.
