    Hii pls help. Im having difficulties with the sound on my pc. :confused:

    Speaker type: microlab x4
    Sound card: creative 5.1
    OS: Win7

    Creative 5.1 driver installed + realtek HD audio driver R263 installed.
    When creative 5.1 driver is chosen as the default device, sound is coming but not from woofer and front speakers.
    However when i play blu-ray movies (both on media player and vlc) sound is coming from all the speakers as opposed to sound coming only from the rear speakers when i play song from media player and youtube.

    When realtek is chosen as the default device no sound is coming.

    Hope you guys can help me out. thanks a lot. :)

    Creative and Realtek are two different audio chipsets. Most likely, you have a Realtek audio chipset on the motherboard and a Creative Sound Card installed.

    The rear speakers working and the front not working, likely indicates a cable connectivity issue (ie: the output cable(s) of the sound card to the speakers) or possibly a speaker configuration issue in the audio setup.

    Simply switching the default audio chipset won't help. YOu would also need to change where the cables are connected.
