    W8.1 No sound coming from the front.


    Hi.

    I have so many problems with windows 8.1 i have seriously no idea where to begin.

    First one i would like to have fixed is this damn sound, happened to me first time i installed windows 8.1 aswell, and i have no idea how i fixed it.

    The speakers are set to Quadraphonic, i have tried all of the settings, none of them work, i ONLY get sound from the LRear and the RRear bot NOT from the FRONT. Meaning that i cant even watch a movie because i hear NO voices, i only hear what is supposed to be behind the camera, i have uninstalled the driver and it automaticaly reinstalled, no success.

    Second thing i would like to add to this post is internet connection in windows 8.1 I have this EXACT problem on FOUR different computers, one desctop PC(The only im currently trying to fix) and 3 laptops.
    The problem is websites load about 50% of the time, 40% of the time they load extremely slow and 10% of the time they just work like they are supposed to.

    This is NOT a problem with my router or such, i have tried at several different places with high speed internet and its all the same.


    Thanks for your help.

    First off, it helps to know the brand of speakers you are using. Second would be which exact version of the Asus Rampage motherboard you have. The most common problem is that people plug their speakers in incorrectly.

    Hi, im sorry if i sounded a bit rude, i was very frustrated yesterday with all these things going wrong.

    I only typed in Asus Ramage because that was all i could remember about its name, but i think it was Asus Rampage II or something like that.

    I fiddled with the sound a bit, i used both headset and Logitech Z-5500. I got the front speakers to work but the back ones doesnt work anymore.

    I guess this works for now since i can hear voices in movies now but it would be nice to have the correct setup.
