So I bought new speakers the other day the Creative Gigaworks T40s and wanted to hook them up to use with my old but still functioning Altec Lansing MX5021 subwwofer. (The speakers were broken but the sub was fine). I have the Asus Realtek sound Manager and when i set it up with the 2 different jacks (green and orange) [i.e L+R & Center/Sub respectively] to a 5.1 surround setup but disabled the speakers that were not being used. The subwoofer clearly responds when I test it within the sound manager, as do the speakers. The problem is that the subwoofers do not dunction outside of the manager (e.g. Chrome, wmp, etc.)
This is the setup I have for the speaker configuration : http://gyazo.com/b016761bcc89aec61608e987db157dc3
What do I do to fix this issue and make it work?
