    Just wondering with widnows 7 if it is capable of outputting 5.1 surround sound? I have noticed when upgraded from xp sound does not come out of every speaker connected?

    Yup, it works fine. If you use onboard- and it will probably be realtek if it is- there should be an icon in the lower right hand of the task bar, looks like a speaker. right click and choose sound manager- it should show what you have there.
    Also try adjusting in the sound applet. Control panel/ sound- click on the speaker setup, go to configure (bottom right) and again choose the speaker setup. Should work ok then :)
