Creative inspire p8500, centre box plugs not working

  1. I have a creative inspire p8500 and was playing music through my computer all very nice, quite loud i might add though and then all of a sudden there was an accute silence from my speakers, but the bass was still pulsing.

    I have tested my speakers they're fine. I haven't touched any of my controls or setup so that's fine. I have even plugged in another sound system into my computer and that works perfectly too. I have unscrewed the sub/centre box and had a look to see if I had fried anything but again to my dismay the whole thing looks tiptop, the fuse hasn't blown.

    I'm at a loss really because all I can determine is that the 5 ports that I plug the 5 speakers into has some how malfunctioned and won't now transmit to the speakers. I have tried other speakers with the same result - don't work.
    Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone assist with a way to correct the problem?
    Any help would be great.
    PS. the speakers were working fine for about 2-3 years.
