    open your sound manager & set it to 5.1 ch,then
    check the "speaker test".

    click each speaker image & you should hear the
    sound coming from them (sub/center,front L/R,rear L/R).

    are you using onboard sound or PCI sound card?

    if you're using the onboard sound,does it support
    the 6 ch?(audio outputs).

    what model is your motherboard (if onboard sound).
    as well as your PCI sound card (if you have).

    Confirm you have the most up-to-date drivers installed:

    Please press the green button, and select your audio driver

    Sorry, it seems you must do this twice, once here, then when you get to Asus support, click it again.
