Hmmm, this sounds like either a driver issue, or a card/compatibility issue. you might try reverting to old drivers(last resort), making shure you have 4.1 enabled in sound control pannel(do this first), triple checking connections/connectors on both the speakers and the card(remember, you only have 5 speakers, not 8) and if you have the headphone-type phone plug for your speakers, you might try making shure that they are compatible with the jacks on your card, although, I would have to know more about your setup to be completely shure.

Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...

In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

Surround Sound Speaker

It sounds like you need to define the speakers to the PC. Find the icon that controls your Sound Card and dabble with it.

Logitech x-140 speakers connection

Did you try the black plug? Also, look at the right hand side of the tray and see if you have a Speaker icon. And if you do have a speaker icon, make sure that your sound is not muted.

Sound problem

What you need to do is install new sound drivers1.gif, now depending on how your system is set up there are a couple possible solutions. Now I will walk you through a couple steps but before I begin I want you to remember something for me and I will explaine in further detail later. BEFORE INSTALLING NEW AUDIO DRIVERS YOU MUST FIRST UN-INSTALL ANY DRIVERS THAT ARE CURRENTLY INSTALLED. That is very important as if this step is skipped the problem will still exist.
1st solution go into your control panal, find the icon for your sound options, double click on that icon. Go into the properties and uninstall all audio drivers. Then make sure your P.C. is connected to the internet and restart your computer. When the P.C. restarts it will look for driver for your audio device, it will also look online to try to find drivers. This should fix your problem, just follow the instructions and install your new driver. However for the sake of giving you a wider set of tools I will list a couple other options.
2nd solution check Windows update, let them scan your system and see if they have an updated audio driver. If they do then un-install any current audio drivers and run the update.
3rd solution if you have an onboard sound card1.gif (it is sodderd to the motherboard and canot be removed) You may have to go to the website of the manafactuer of your motherboard and enter the model number of your motherboard, they should have instructions for updating the audio drivers for your sound card. You may have to find the support section of their website .
4th solution If you have a PCI video card1.gif (it slides into a PCI slot on your motherboard and can be removed from the computer) You will have to find the manufacture of the sound card, sometimes the easiest way to get this info is to open the side of your computer (remember to power off and unplug your computer before removing the side) and looking at the card its self as most manfacutuers will have their name on the card, take note you may also need a model number off of the card for some of the manufactuers. Find the website for your videocard and try to find drivers for your particular card, keep in mind again these companies make many diffrent models so there may be diffrent drivers for diffrent sound cards1.gif and even drivers based on the operating system you are using. Once you find the driver you need make sure you have un-installed any drivers that were on your computer and download and install your new drivers.
Hope this helps

Rear left speaker not playing

If the speaker itself is working then the problem will most likely be the connection point where the speaker plugs into. If you dont know how to check for this problem, i dont really want to tell you just in case you hurt yourself. Take it to a shop and have it looked at by someone thats knows what there looking for.
