I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure this out, but haven't found anything that works in the forum threads.
I'm running Windows Vista and I have a Logitech speaker 5.1 surround system. It was all working just fine up until the last round of Windows Updates last Tuesday. I've successfully done 3 system restores since then to get my speakers corrected, but then the next windows update installation kills them again. Basically, they have twisted the signals and made my computer think that the side speakers (Right and Left) are actually the rear speakers, and isn't sending any sound to the actual rear speakers. Also, when I test what should be the side speakers, nothing comes out.
So my Center speaker and sub work just fine, the right and left speakers play sounds sent to the rear right and left, but anything that only puts out normal stereo sound to the right and left is completely muted. I've run dxdiag and cannot find anything wrong with the drivers. I've re-installed the drivers, but that had no effect. I've triple checked the connections even though I knew for a fact exactly what caused the malfunction since I successfully corrected it three times. I don't know why the fourth time I restored to pre-update settings the sound did not come back. Can anyone please help turn this bleeping computer back into a working computer???
