I wanted to use some surround speakers with my desktop computer, after connecting them i went to sound properties and enabled Surround Sound, all the audio jacks are connected properly, so i test the speakers, when i test them, all sound gets redirected to frontal LR speakers, and then I noticed windows is not detecting one audio jack, i have tried reinstalling drivers and checking the audio jacks, but nothing seems to work, 2 months back it was working,what can i do?

What kind of software are you using to simulate surround sound? Looking at your manual I do not think that a 5.1 audio output software is native to your hardware.

I looked at the manual for your audio and it is not supported beyond Windows XP.

I did have it working 1 month ago, everything was working, and now all the sounds get redirected to FRFL speakers
