surround sound problem

I have a problem with my new speakers (Logitech x-530) 5.1 surround sound.
I have configured Windows XP audio settings to accept 5.1, so that rules out that problem. My PC is brand new AMD ks-rock m/board with built-in 5.1 audio.
The problem seems to be a connection issue, after wiring up the satellite speakers to the subwoofer correctly and connecting to my PC I can only receive sound through the front 2 speakers and subwoofer. Or if I switch the connectors around I can receive the central and s/woofer, or the rear 2 speakers and s/woofer. But I cannot receive sound through all five speakers at once.
The coloured jacks going to the PC are; orange, green, and black.
However, the recievers at the rear of PC are coloured orange, green, and blue.
I have also tried to re-install the audio drivers and checked that they are operating okay in device manager.
Also, after ringing Logitech I was told to try the speakers on another device (like a dvd player) to make sure they are working alright. When I went to do this I realised that the dvd player receives different jacks. So I simply returned them to the shop and got a replacement set of speakers - that has'nt cured my problem, so I can only assume it is a connection issue and very probably something very simple that I'm overlooking. Can anyone help me?? Please.........

lol funny pic destructo roboto. peadhar have u got an audio utility installed that enables your onboard sound to be made into 5.1, because you usually have to enable it.

did you get a book on the motherboard with the new PC? if so, that should tell you what the outs are. typically, green for front L/R, black for rear L/R, orange for center/sub.
if you dont have a book, you can get info in your mobo using Everest home. it will list your mobo, and probably have a link. go to manufacturers website, find the manual, download it.

also in sound properties (through control panel), make sure the speaker settings are set for 5.1 surround.

same thing for jack coloring on the speaker set. should have a book with description. the logitech site wasnt much help unfortunately.
