    I have an AMD 2000+ athlonXP, 1 gig DDR ram, running winXP.
    I installed SBlive 5.1 and Altec Lansing 4.1 speakers. I am only getting sound from the front speakers. Nothing from the sub or the rear speakers. I have disabled the onboard sound, which is also sound blaster. I uninstalled and reinstalled quite a few times. I went to Creative's site and downloaded their newest drivers for XP. I and stumped. Any suggestions?

    Did you go to control panel/sounds and multimedia/audio/advanced/ and select the proper speaker setting??????

    I have the very same soundcard and the same speakers. When you downloaded the SBLiveDrvPack from creative it should have installed Audio Headquarters. It will be in control Panel listed as AudioHQ. Click on that and then double click on the speaker Icon. It says "Speakers" at the top of that window is a drop down menu with options for 2 speakers, 4 speakers etc... choose 4 speakers and then click the " test" button to the right to see if you hear them all. Also you may need to chek the level on the knob on the subwoofer to make sure it is turned up and that the little switch on the woofer is set to surround sound and you also have controls on the front right speaker. The little knob to the left labeled "surround" on the front right speaker should be turned all the way clockwise.
