5.1 Surround Sound Help (PC)

14 replies 3 views Edited Mar 18, 2007
I just bought the Logitech 5.1 surround sound speakers, but only two of them work. Why is that? And I have no sound card, just the on board one....

Yes. Only the Green, not the yellow and black, because I don't have a sound card.

Well that stinks if I do need that, and I did change it to 5.1 and nothing. So I guess it's a no go... By the way I feel like I bougt fake speakers, because they look different than my 2.1 Logitechs.. I bought the X-530 as well.

What's a good cheap 5.1 sound card? PCI.
