Re: 5.1 Speaker Setup

Check if the speakers are working with winamp or any other media player. If yes then install windows media player again. else there might be some problem with your rear speakers. check them out with a hardware service-person. if nothing works, reinstall windows. the default drivers will be loaded and your software problem is solved

My speakers are not working. There is no sound. I lost the CD and I don't know if this needs an installer/software/soundcard/driver .. etc. Creative Speakers Model: SBS 240


  1. try to reinstall your sound can find this driver on your motherboard CD or you can download this driver from your motherboard manufacturer website....
  2. try to connect speaker on another system, if it works on another system it means that your speaker in working and there is no technical fault if your speaker is not working it means your speaker need a repair..
  3. there is a icon of speaker on right bottom near by time check there if it is on mute mode if it is then unchecked the box ..
ifyou find this is helpful for you so please rate me this will encourage me to domore free work..

Just built new pc and the left speaker on my creative t40 speakers will not work and clicks intermittently. If I disconnect from main right speaker, then the right speaker will not work. Have tried...

I would get a repair estimate on the speakers, could be just a bad solder on the inside of the case. If repairs are going to cost over 100 dollars, then i would replace them. At least you know it's the speakers and not your audio card or integrated audio on your motherboard. I hope this helps.

Trouble with Speaker 5.1 +Vista + Asus P5k Motherboard. No Rear Speaker sound

Hi Perseo,

If you run through a speaker test in windows, and hear playback from all 5 speakers and the subwoofer, then your system is correctly connected, and working properly.

Vista uses a layered sound system that renders sound a bit differently than what you're used to on your previous system. As a result, it will most often refuse to project stereo sources in 5-channel surround, on it's own. it will just play them as stereo, and the bass will fill in whenever it can.

One possible way you could use to get around this, is to force the system to use all 5 speakers, through the driver. If you're using a realtek onboard card anything like mine (I have a p5k-VM board myself), this can be done by opening up the HD Audio Manager, and selecting the "Speaker Fill" option, under the Speaker Configuration" tab.

another option would be to load your media player you use to play music or movies, and see if there's an option to change speaker settings within the programs.

hope this helps!
