Default Only Two Logitech X-530 Speakers Work

I have a Soltek-K8T-Pro939 motherboard and it has a Realtek ALC850 AC'97 2.3 8-Channel with UAJ, SPDIF optical in and out onboard audio sound card. However when i plug all the speakers in, it only plays the FRONT left and right speakers and the sub. I'm using the realtek sound manager. When i do the autotest it plays all of the speakers so i know the speakers arent broken. The center speaker and the rear speakers dont play my music. I'm not sure why this is. Below is a picture of my motherboard and the sound card. I'm plugging all 3 of the logitech cords into the 3 vertical ports to the right.

Well what are you playing that you expect to use your center channela and surrounds? I mean, CD's are STEREO and so are MP3's. Unless you use a program which sends the signal out to all speakers all you should expect from music is stereo.

You can upmix to get it through every channel, but music is ideally listened to in 2.0 or 2.1 channels; this gives you the intended soundstage. The only music designed to be listened to in more channels afaik is DVD-A
