Since my Xp installation I have been having a problem with my soundblaster live. Here goes.. I have a 4 speaker setup every time I start my computer only the front 2 speakers work.. I have to go into the sounblaster program AudioHQ and click on speaker setup then "test" then all the speakers work.. The setup is correct for 4 speaker setup but untill I test the speakers only the front 2 work. I have updated all the software and drivers but that didnt seem to help.. At least they work but its just a major Pain to do this evey time I start the computer. Any Help would be appreciated.

You could check for an update, I'm not sure when you checked last.

I couldnt use the Creative ones when I had my Live, but the MS ones worked fine for me. I just had to enable quadraphonic speakers, and I was set.

So you have audioHQ set for 4 speaker, Windows Sound properties set for quadraphonic speakers, and your *positive* that your speakers are connected properly?

Have you tried switching around your connections?

Guess what! I just checked my speakers through AudioHQ all four channels work front left, front right, rear left and rear right. I went to listen to some music and only the front speakers are working. Used winamp and musicmatch and both are only using the front speakers.. This is really starting to upset me.

Check and see if there a setting for it in the options somewhere. Its been awhile since I ran Winamo, so I cant help you there. Ditto for Musicmatch.

No nothing like that in Winamp or musicmatch..
Still have to do the check in AudioHQ to get all the speakers to work in windows media player also..

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
