    I have a 4-5 year old Evesham (UK) AMD 2000+ PC with a Creative Audigy sound card (5.1 system). The two rear speakers have recently ceased to operate, whilst the two front and the centre are fine. Plugs are OK and seated properly (tried many times!) - speakers OK (have swopped them around) - have reinstalled software several times - have swopped sound card into different PCI slots - I'm stuck!
    Since this problem started, I've reformatted my C: drive and completely reinstall all software - including, of course, WinXP Home and the Creative software - prob still there.
    I can only suppose that the card has a problem or there's a snag in the bass speaker which has terminals taking the input from the sound card and delivering the output to the 5 small speakers. But I don't want to spend £50 on a new card only to find that there's no change.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Regards - Roger

    Well if you have loaded the proper drivers successfully, and have 5.1 specified in the Advanced Sound Properties (control panel)....I'd have to guess that you blew out the rear channels.

    Thanks for your reply Winbob
    Drivers OK and 5.1 specified. Am I right to assume that the damage you mention would be on the sound card? How could I have done that?

    Roger,

    The damage would be to the sound card itself, and the possibilities of "How" are endless.
