Hi,

 

Recently  bought a new 7800 video card but to my disapointment however im unable to get 5.1 sound from my speakers under win7.

The sound is send directly from the motherboard to the speakers and the monitor im using has no integrated speakers using a DVI connection.

It seems that the AMD high definition audio driver is screwing things up as I already got a Realtek High Definition Audio driver which used to work fine in producing 5.1 sound. Even if I disable the AMD audio driver I still dont have 5.1 sound back. After uninstalling the damm AMD audio driver it gets automatically installed again upon reboot.

 

Question is : How do I get back 5.1 sound using the AMD driver ? Or how do I disable the AMD audio driver and get rid of it forever ?

How are you connecting the HDMI cable to get get 5.1 sound? Are you connected to a 5.1 audio reciever.

Can you also provide me the current graphics driver version that is installed in your system?

Im not using an hdmi cable at all, just the normal jack connection from my motherboard to the subwoofer unit (Logitech Z506).

 

Driver reported by catalyst control center is : 12.104-130328a-155980C-ATI.
