    Hi all - did a lot of research on this and have seen similar threads but no real solution. I have a Dell dimension 5150 with a junky sigmatel onboard card, Since migrating from vista - im only getting sound through 2 speakers, have lost 5.1 surround. Strange thing is if i go and test the device through the sound control panel - the speakers all work as expected. Driving me nuts - im at the point of buying a new sound card - but im worried that they might not even be compatable with w7 either. I did hear that "if it works with Vista - it will work with Windows 7 " but that is definitely not the case. Have tried installing the driver in compatability mode for both vista and XP - no joy,.

    Anybody with a possible solution?? ?

    Many thanks
