Not sure where it's going wrong.

I'm using Realtek audio manager, the speakers are hooked up correctly, latest drivers etc. I changed all the options as far as i can tell on both the audio manager & control panel. If i click test so it tests whether the speakers are connected i get sound coming from all the speakers.

Tried on both Spotify & WMP so I'm guessing it's applied to all programs.

Any ideas or similar problems?

sounds like the audio files are 2.1 not 5.1, so in orther words your not getting full 5.1 sound files, aka not windows fault but yours.

It's not playing sound in 5.1 surround sound, only in stereo. All the speakers are connected and when tested work.

What? You mean the actual .wma file? That isn't it.

Spotify is a digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs.

Not all mp3 files support surround, afaik.

well most mp3 dont support surround, they are made for 2.1, thats why 5.1 speakers come with matrix mode.

TS try a dvd (make sure its 5.1 surround) and try it in the computer, see if it works.

It's the actual playback on the computer, it's irrelevant to the file type. It was a .wma file also btw my mistake.

What out of place quote? 0o

Again my mistake it was a .wma file. Like i said above though that's not it, it's nothing to do with any music files.

If i was to play a CD or DVD or anything on my computer it would only play in stereo sound.

I keep saying that because thats what happens =/ Thats why i can't figure it out, it's just like the computer is playing in stereo sound regardless.

Will try the DVD thing now but i think it will play in stereo

EDIT: Like i thought it plays sound in stereo

the only thing left then, is u didnt turn ur speakers onto 5.1 on the windows speaker adjustments (bottom right corner) or you downloaded a 2.1 driver for your audio card

When you play a movie sound isn't always gonna be coming out of the back speakers.

It's only at certain times.

EDIT:Also

Right click your speaker on the Start Bar.

and click on Play back devices.

click on speakers/headphones and configure it for 5.1

if this doesn't work, your wiring could be screwed up, or the inputs. or your sound card isn't 5.1
