Default Sound only coming out of rear speakers on 5.1 set?

Hi everyone, whats up? I have a really annoying problem that I cant seem to solve. I have a 3 month old Creative 5.1 Surround Sound set but today sound is only coming out of the rear speakers?! Yesterday it was working perfectly well.

The sound card is six years old but is a Creative Live! 5.1 which has worked extremely well to the current day. Yesterday I formatted two other hard drives in my system; one was with Server 2003 on and the other with Vista on, could this have caused the issue?


Brand new setup!

BFG GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3
Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator RAM

Could have done yeah, if the driver was somehow there.

You may have to re-install your sound drivers.
