    The stupid question is how do I know if my soundcard will support 5.1?

    When I go to see what type of card it is it says "SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio."

    The instruction manual talks about 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 channel sound cards. All I know is that I have three jacks on the back of the computer, the blue, pink and green. So far I can only get the "front speakers" to work (not the rear or center).

    If you can find the manual or website for the card, that will give you info on setup.

    Usually there is software installed that also allows you to setup the way that the jacks work, etc. Check under Start, Programs to run whatever utilities might have come with the sound card.
