Hello everyone, I've just got my new PC and I've got a problem with my new audio system.. I have a 2.1 Speaker system and I don't hear any sound from my subwoofer. I've looked for the problem on Google, I tried to update my drivers, I tried almost everything. A little help would be welcome, thank you!

Do you have separate input to subwoofer and did you check "Enable Bass Management" ?

Just looked at it, it has only one 3.5mm stereo jack to connect it to Green connector on the computer. Real 2.1 system should have a separate one that goes in the Black jack in the comouter for separate control. this way only bass control is on the speaker itself.

You mean I can't use this subwoofer at all?
You can use it but not control it separately from the computer. There's a button in the back of it for that.
