Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices> On the volume tab, the first one, at the bottom click Advanced, under Speaker Settings. From there choose your speaker setup from the drop down list.

On the sub is it set to 5.1? also check your windows audio to see if it's set to 5.1 too.

Ha, we all said the same thing at the same exact time (8:25pm for me too). Isn't that something? This should be one of the rare moments on ComputerForums.
