    Hello,
    First time posting here, hopes are high.
    I have a computer, athlon 1800+ XP processor, 512MB Ram, 30GB HDD, DVD combo drive, CDRW Drive, Sound Blaster 2 Card, Raden 8500 video card. Systems running windows 2000 professional, recently purchased Logitech Z-640 Speakers in hopes that I could listen to my movies in surround, but alas the speakers have thwarted me. I have it all wired correctly, speakers to sub, sub to center channel, center channel to the 3 surround outputs on my card. I get sound through the Front left and front right and sub, and if i press the nifty matrix button I get some use out of the center channel. The rear 2 speakers have not worked to date. I have the most recent drivers available from Creative, july 29 04 i believe was the date released. The speakers work fine if i switch the rear and plug them into the front. I tried to download the DVD-audio play software from creative, but it wont install, as well as the surround sound mixer program from creative. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
    Neal Strong

    This may be obvious but have you gone into control panel/ sound and audio devices and made sure the 5.1 setting is enabled for your speakers? What happens when you try to install the various programs that won't install. Any error messages? Excuse my ignorance what is a "matrix button"?
