The 2 small speakers play fine; the subwoofer does not. there is nothing wrong with the speakers. when I go into the computer, there is an option for 'surround' speakers, but it's greyed out and I can't enable it. I've checkd the drivers, they are the latest it says. How to make the subwoofer play? thank you!

In two channel mode, there will be no subwoofer signal unless you change the front speakers to 'small'. If you set the front speakers as 'large' then the full frequency spectrum will be sent to the front speakers, and none to the sub. Switching from bluray may keep the surround configuration until you restart as you mentioned.
Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times. The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program. I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.
hi, it does need a set of external speakers , if you intend playing music it will sound better if you buy a 2.1 setup ( 2 small speakers and a subwoofer) you can purchase reasonable ones for around £25 , if not playing music or games with sound effects then opt for a simple 2 speaker setup , plug the mini 3.5mm jack plug from the speakers into the green jack socket . hope this helps
