Realtek AC97 / Vista sound issue

  1. My kids broke the surround sound system I had set up before. So I went out and got a new subwoofer with built in amp and 5 speakers.

    HAVE SOUND in the front left, rear right, and the sub.

    NO SOUND - center, front right, and rear left

    That makes no sense to me as I have been through all the settings and obviously not balance if there is out put on opposite sides and front/back

    Any Ideas

    Edit: on 2 channels only the sub and front left work, the rear speaker goes out.

    you can try downloading the latest driver for your sound from
    your motherboard's manufacturer's website.

    if you're using the on-board sound,then i guess there's an issue
    for sound drivers in x32 & 64 vista version for set ups on 6ch to
    8ch speaker systems.

    your latest sound driver available is both for x32 & x64 vista.
    not really sure if they're only in beta version.

    is the replacement one (speakers) are same model as the old one?
