    What is your on-board sound like? Most new motherboards have great on-board audio which can save you a lot of money, I have 7.1 HD audio on my motherboard running on Win7 and it sounds amazing..

    If you could find a working driver for any of them it would be really awesome.

    Realtek is the pwnage of soundcards.... Just look to your manufacturer's website for sound card driver update that works for Win7

    I've alredy installed the drivers from realteks website, when i test the sound through the Realtek settings program(or whatever its called) and the sound works great.

    But if I go to youtube or spotify I just hear sound from the 2 front speakers.

    I hate sound-drivers, have always problem with it

    I had a lot of problems finding audio drivers for Windows7, this program helped a lot with Win7 drivers, you have to register but it's a free program..

    DriverMax - FREE driver download program for Windows XP & Vista

    Your computer manufacturer's website is usually the one that covers Win7 driver updates specific to your computers card model, that is if your computer came with the with the Realtek card out of the package.

    Like I said, I have the lastest driver installed(from their website).

    When I test the sound from realteks control panel I hear sound from every speaker, but if I go to youtube I just hear sound from 2 speakers :/

    Read

    And I've installed: Vista/Win7 (32/64 bits) Driver only (ZIP file)

    So I think the problem is in my settings.

    ...... Your computer manufacturer will have a patch/update specific to your computer model if they've noticed a problem with Realtek drivers on your specific model of computer.

    otherwise you just don't know how to setup some speakers.

    I've set the settings to 5.1, test it(EVERY speaker works)

    But if I go to yt i just hear sound from 2 speakers.

    I'm going to try to install an old driver that works on win 7 and see if it works

    ... To get 5.1 sound you have to be listening to 5.1 audio content.
