Alright, so my problem is that my left speakers (rear and front) are more quiet than my right speakers, which bugs me a little. Also, whenever I plug in the center wire from my sub woofer to the center slot in my computer, the left speakers will not work at all. When I unplug the center wire, all the speakers work. However, when the center wire is plugged in, all speakers will work when testing in Realtek HD Audio Manager. Is there something wrong with my settings? I've double checked all the connections and they're all correct, I'm thinking it might be my settings or something?

I'm willing to take any suggestions, please and thank you in advanced. Sorry if the post is a bit long. If you need any further details to diagnose the problems, just ask and I'll see what I can find.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I would suggest you go into your Sound effect manager, which is commonly installed with Realtec driver packages and you'll notice that your audio output jacks can be set up for as many as six speakers for Quadraphonic surround sound, these settings are different from your normal windows sound properties and it is here, that you need to make your adjustments to your speakers sound levels.

You can find Sound Effect Manager in your windows control panel.

Hope this helps.
