5.1 Speaker Problems

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

Alright, Steam tech support sucks. I am having a problem in Counter-Strike Source getting it to work with my Altec Lansing 5.1 Surround Sounds speakers. I have the most up to date drivers, I have double checked it by running auto update on the Creative website and by downloading drivers manually just to be save. I have a Creative SB Live Internal Sound Card. So I have the newest drivers and I have tried every all the speaker settings in CS:S (5.1, 7.1, 4 speaker, 2 speaker, EVEN HEADPHONES) Nothing works. How do I fix this? Steam tech support hasn't responded AND I WANT TO PLAY! I get no audio out of my speakers, including during the speaker test thing.

    I just got my Logitech x-550's in for $50 from newegg, they are amazing....Looks like I'll have to invest in a new 5.1 sound card.

    I have an internal motherboard sound card, but I have had that disabled because it can't handle 5.1. I did some searching and found another forum where a guy said to go download some third party drivers at another website. I did that and BOOM, it works, and my speakers have never sounded better.
