Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers
Its all plugged in correctly,im running vista 32bit onbourd sound on a asus p5k-e wifi-ap motherboard and i configured it in controll pannel but it still doesnt work in windows media player 10 and games.
Right, I am not technically minded at all, and all this talk about updating software and plug-ins baffled me. I bought my Logitech speakers 3 days ago, and happily plugged them into the soundcard, only to be puzzled that only my front speakers and subwoofer worked when I played music or video. I then had a brainwave. Using the 3 in 1 port that logitech provided me with, I got myself a phono to mono lead, which you can get at all good electrical stores, (take the three way box with you if you are stuck) Then proceed to plug the three speaker outputs into the box, colour co ordinated, then the phono end of the phono to mono lead in the box at the other side. Then using the single input, plug it into the input of your Soundcard. My soundcard has 8 inputs, so I just kept trying them all until sound came out through my speakers. A much less technical answer than changing all your drivers, creating profiles, fiddling with the deep insides of your PC. Hope this is of some use to you guys!

I am using XP (and in a different language), but I will try to describe what I've done to my best.
Supposing you've installed all drivers and control consoles correctly, go to Volume Control of Windows (the little speaker icon in the lower right hand corner). On the top, move to Options, and select Advanced Options. Now there should be something similar to "Playback Controls" on the left side of the dialog box. Click on the "Speaker Volume" button Click "Restore Defaults" (this should set all slide bars to the middle) Click OK Now test!

Sounds like a software mapping problem. If your sound card has its input and output jacks configured in software, you may need to create a profile (depending upon the software and drivers your sound card came with) for how different applications configure the output ports on the card. I had this same problem playing DVDs; PowerDVD ran everything fine on all channels, while Media Player and DivX ran only two channels. Start by checking the sound card's web site for configuration utilities and installing the latest drivers. Then, launch a program that does it *wrong*, and try to tweak the sound card's properties through control panel/device manager or through the card's TSR/system tray program.
Ideas anyway. :>)
