  1. Hi guys

    i got a realtek intergted sound on my mobo vnf4ultra and logitech speakers 2 speakers and a sub

    i got the realtek drivers for vista

    the problem is that the sound will not work, when i go and configure it and put it into 4 speaker mode and test it

    the speakers work as the REAR speakers whitch is great exept windows will not use them

    im so confussed on this

    and yes i know vista is only beta but i would like to get sound

    Are you using the Realtec config utility to set the speaker mode or the vista config? I would leave Realtec config on two speaker and set vista to the same.

    Like you say It is a beta!!!!.

    Good luck mate

    Think you might be able to get it here:
    http://www.chaintech.com.tw/tw/eng/Download/

    Under "software for Digital media" but you will have to check your system to see which device you have that matches one on the list.

    It might still not work with vista. (make sure you dont install any driver component cause it will probably just overwrite the one you got for vista)

    good luck mate

    its beta for a reason

    i have a 5.1 sound card and only the front will work..its just vista
    theres no real away around..theres that utility in vista that lets you set up how many speakers but when you apply setting it reverts to 2 speaker config

    Hey swker98, on my vnf4ultra I can get 4 channel working with the beta 2 of vista. I used the realtek drivers off my chaintech "nvidia all in one pack driver" cd. It was a little odd to set it up, but if I set vista to "stereo" in the sound options, but set the realtek speaker configuration settings to 4 channel, then I get output from 4 speakers.

    Hope this is helpful.

    PS: just to clarify do you have a 2.1 or a 4 channel setup? You seem to say both in your first post.

    So you have 2 speakers and a sub. I'd assume since it's a 2.1 set it likely doesn't use a dedicated sub channel, and would just run off the stereo out(green) port.

    thats wired because the speakers only work in the back port lol
