The issue I have is really annoying and confusing me.
I have some 5.1 Speakers (5 Speakers - 1 Subwoofer).
They're quite old now (10+ years), but work perfectly fine.
For quite some time (I think since I actually got the new mainboard) the subwoofer is not working.
Not working is a bit vague and not interly correct, so let me elaborate.
They're all plugged in correctly, driver installed and working.
Testing the speakers on by one (eitherway by the Realtek Audio-Manager or from Windows) they work - even the subwoofer.
But when I try to play audiofiles with a program(winamp, windows media player, etc) there is no bass and the subwoofer is not working.
I tried to fiddle with the options there and the equalizer. No dice.
The same is with any games. Not working.
But now comes the weird part.
I use Mozilla Firefox as browser and if I try to play music on youtube the bass works(!).
I tried to look into windows settings, audio-settings from realtek, everything I can think off.
Can't figure it out at all.
But how come the subwoofer works perfectly fine on Firefox and YouTube but not with anything else I try to use it with?
It's really confusing and annoying for me and if anyone has any advice, it would be really appriciated.
Information I should add:
I use Win7-64 bit as OS
Mainboard: Gigabyte Z68X-UD3-B3
I use the onboard soundcard
All drivers are updated
(re-installed them too)
