Hi all

For everyone with the RealTek AC97 codec and the lastest Windows Vista drivers, to get stereo sound (eg MP3s and AVIs) to play through all speakers instead of just the left and right you can try this:


1. Click right button of mouse on the sound icon of right down sound tray

icon. Open Sound device. Please refer the attached SpeakerFill-1.jpg.

2. Select "Config" of "Speakers" device and chose 5.1(or 7.1). Then click

"Next", "Next" ...."Finish".

3. Please refer the attached SpeakerFill-2.jpg. Select "Properties" of

"Speakers" device. Then enable "Speaker Fill" item and click "Apply".


This worked for me :thumbsup_anim: , hope it works for anyone with the same problem with sound in Vista.
