First let's start by identifying where you have your speakers plugged into. I have the A7N8X Deluxe board with the onboard sound with the Logitech Z640 speakers and they sound great. My speakers have three inputs that I needed to plug in to my PC, an orange one that went in the orange labeled input, a green one that went into the green labeled input and a black one(subwoofer) that went into the black input. Other speaker setups might not match up colors with your PC so you need to look at the diagram in the motherboard manual that tells what each of the 6 plugins are configured for.

I have the same board with the same sound. My sound works, but only 2 speakers. I think I'm stuck with 2 chanel audio. How do I adjust this to where it should be? I have a 4 speaker setup and can only hear out of 2.

Using Mandrake 9.1 in KDE.
