Hi.
My son has a pc. Windows 7 ultimate with an ASUS P5Q Deluxe motherboard. The video card is an Asus GX560 Ti.
I got him some logitech X530 5.1 surround sound speakers. I can only get left, right and woofer to work.
I wanted to use Realtek sound manager to try and set the speakers up as i have the same speakers and i found that program worked well for me to set the speakers up.
I have installed realtek but i cannot seem to get sound manager to show on his pc. Have read loads of things on the net but had no luck.
I copied my sound manager to his pc but it didn't install. I could just open it. When it opens there is no info about the sound or directx version showing in the opening menu of Sound manager.
I read somewhere about conflicts with Nvidia. After 3 hours messing about i needed a break. Thought i would ask here before i have another try.
Thanks.

The ASUS P5Q Deluxe uses Soundmax Audio (ADI) so this is why your Realtek Sound Manager will not work since it is not a Realtek soundcard on the motherboard.

And as to why you cannot make all the speakers work try these connections:

The wires of your Logitech wires to your motherbard audio connection

Logitech green wire (front) to Soundcard Lime connection
Logitech black wire (rear) to Soundcard black connection
Logitech orange wire (center/sub) to soundcard orange connection

That is how i have them wired.
I have just read about Soundmax and someone was talking about getting some drivers for it. From what i read i feel pretty hopeful.
In hindsight most of my pc probs over the years have all turned out to be something really simple. No doubt this is.
Thanks for the response.
Will get back to you when i get them working properly

Well it turned out that Soundmax wasn't installed. Got it from Asus and after some fiddling about finally got it sorted.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. :thumbsup:
