Problem configuring my PC sound; appreciate some help here
After moving, my Klipsch 4.1 Promedia speaker setup is wonky. I have an HTO Striker sound card as well as the optional VIA Hi Def sound through my Asus mobo. I have quadraphonic speaker setup selected in Control Panel. Normally, I set the HTO Striker as default, but I discovered that I was not getting any sound through the rear speakers during music playback. However, if I run speaker test through Win 7 control panel, the rear speakers work and output the test jingle tone pattern. Thinking my HTO Striker sound card went wonky, I set the VIA on-board sound as default and still no sound out of the rear speakers during music playback. Running speaker test again using the VIA chipset, I get the test tone pattern through the rear speakers showing that they are working there too. So I am baffled why I can get test tones through the rear speakers with either sound output device but cannot get music playback through the rear channel at all. I have double checked my wiring connections with no discoveries. Win Media Player is my default. I am probably missing something obvious, but atm I am stumped. This is a shout out for help so if you have any suggestions, I am ready to try all credible ideas. Thanks!!!
