So, I bought a cool 5.1 speaker system - "Goldship" is the brand - but discovered I'd bought a system meant to be plugged into a DVD. It came with only 3 cables, two sets of black and red points on each, which of course fit nowhere into my pc.
So I thought I'd be clever and buy three sets of cables with one pair of black and red points on one end, and a PC plug thingy on the other end.
This works to an extent: Only the green receiver recognises speakers. So now, I have the red and white points plugged into "AUX" and the other end into the green receiver, and all the speakers plus sub are working. But they are obviously not "real" surround sound, just 5.1 speakers acting as stereo sound.
So my question is, what driver program do I need to download to set my blue and pink receivers to recognise speakers. And also, in my Windows 7 sound settings, under Audio Channels, I have only one option to choose from: Stereo. The 5.1, and quadrophonic etc options I've read about online are simply not there. (?)
