Hello-

Recently, my 5.1 speakers have stopped working properly.
The two outer left and right speakers don't work anymore. Only the Center, Main Left, Main Right, and Subwoofer work.

I tried downloading the latest driver for my sound card (sound blaster live! 5.1) but when I run it, the program cannot find a Sound Blaster Live card. (I tried the regular sound blaster live! driver as well). However if I look under device manager->sound, video, game controller and dxdiag, the card is listed as working properly.

Another thing is that in device manager, there is a "multimedia audio controller" under "other devices". I've had that for a while but didn't think much of it because my speakers were working normally at the time.

Also, I'm not sure if it's related, but while playing Day of Defeat:Source and Counter-Strike:Source, I get very choppy sounds. After having this problem for a while the games now crash after the load screen and force me to restart my whole computer. Reinstalling the games didn't have any effect.

I am using Windows xp sp2, a sound blaster live! 5.1, and I think Logitech Z-640 5.1 Speakers. Picture of them here: http://www.laaudiofile.com/images/z640.jpg

I would delete the Multimedia audio controller under Other Devices, but since it was always there it may not solve anything. Are all your settings correct in control panel under Sounds and Audio Devices? If you remember when this started you can do a System Restore to a date before the problem began. Try uninstalling the sound card in Device Manager and rebooting.
