Default 5 speakers only 2 work?? HELP PLZ

i have a xps 210 and just recently bought a 5 speaker dell system for it. When i hooked it all up only the sub and 2 front speakers work. Does this have something to do with the soundcard that came with the dell??? anyone ever had this problem??

try going into control panel, sounds and audio devices and then go to "advanced" under speaker settings and choose "5.1 surround sound speakers" and it should work.

I had the same problem when I purchased my dell 5.1 speakers last year. I went to sound settings and did that and it worked perfectly.
