Re: only 2 of my 5 speakers are working
Press the SURR button until you get sound on all five speakers. If you don't get sound on all 5, there are a few possibilities:
1) the program you are watching only gets stereo sound or lower (only two or one speaker will play in this case)
2) you need to get a digital audio cable instead of using the red/white AV cable
3) a setting on the TV, cable, or satellite box needs to be changed to allow surround sound in full

control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers if you have tried this you might try
control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,right click select properties to either troubleshoot,uninstall,rollback driver
well if your motherboard supports your speekers it shoud run corectlly, but if not, you shoud get a special sound card with cd, which will allow you to use your speakers. if you already have that sound card and installed drivers you should go to your sound card control pannel and make changes there to use all your sound system speakers.
Most computers use the GREEN output jack on the sound card for playback...plug your headphones in the back where the speakers go...sound? Yes...then verify you ahve the speaker system put together correctly...bet you don't...note: self powered speakers must be plugged in to work (electrical plugged in).
If no...then you got a bigger fish to fry...
