I upgraded my Aspire to Windows 10 a couple of months ago, but i just use it for excel and word were i didnt care about the sound until now. Imported some old good tunes from my old iPod i want to listen to. I can remember the whole 5.1 sound worked back in Windows 7, but not now.
So it was just default windows 10 sound drivers installed which i downloaded the ones from my Acer's support page for WIN7 x64. They didn't work... at all. So i started troubleshooting and searching. Someone said i should test the drivers from the realtek site instead. Yes it worked... Sort of , just the 2 front speakers work with just system sounds. If i go to Realtek panel it recoqnises the 5.1 system and i test the sound, it just sounds in the 2 front speakers. I tested go to the Speakers setting in control panel and it recoqnises the subwoofer and the other speakers in the volume control to.
I can just hear system sounds now in the front speakers.
Any idea what to do ?
