Hello, I recently purchased the Creative T6160 5.1 Multimedia Speaker System for my computer but cannot get the center and sub to work. The other 4 speakers work just fine.

My Computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...cname=c01612549
With Radeon 4650 video card

My computer has Realtek audio installed, and in the Realtek HD Audio Manager I have set my speaker configuration to 5.1. The audio manager recognizes that my c/sub is connected but they produce no sound when I test them. I have updated all of my audio drivers. All of the speakers are connected into the back of the subwoofer and all 3 cords coming from the sub are connected properly into the back of my computer.

Any help as to why these 2 speakers are not working would be appreciated.

I had this under Windows XP, just keep messing with the configs. It took me like 3 hours to get it to work one day.

I tried tinkering with the configurations again and after setting the volume on my system to absolute 100% I can hear a quiet noise when testing my center speaker and sub through the realtek hd audio manager, although the sound isn't coming from my center or sub. Any ideas?

Are you making sure that the settings are correct and that you have your speakers set up in the right ports on the back?

It could be something as simple as a cord that is shorting out....do you have another cord set to try?
