Hello it's been many moons since I have been here, or needed to be here. But I find myself in need of some assistance.
I can't seem to get any sound from my center speaker. I'm not sure if my profile still has my system info but I will post it anyway.
Logitech Z5500 speakers.
Creative Soundblaster XFI extreme sound card.
It's been so long since I have poked around in my system I don't remember what is what or where. I do know that the speaker does work when I connect the wire to a different channel on the sub woofer. But other that that I can't seem to get any noise to come out when I play music or movies. Just a dead speaker. I use Widows Media Player. I have not taken any driver downloads in years. I just take what comes to me from MSN via automatic updates. Any help would make me a happier person when I am sitting at the desk, which is always.
Okay so when I go to the THX console to check the polarity it gives me an error message that says........
erroe loading wave files please reinstall the THX setup console. How do I do that? I will try to get that done.
install the 2.18.0008 driver dec 17/08
install the Console launcher 2.60.35 jan 7/09
install creative media source 5 player/organizer 5.25.02 feb 7/09
i would also install any of the latest software apps just check the dates.
after u install the driver u may have to select your speakers as 5.1 in the volume control panel in entertainment mode. also in the speaker selection select , advanced , to make sure all the channel volumes are up such as front left ,front rt , front center, rear left , rear rt. hope this helps http://www.creative.com/products/soundblaster/howto/?c=1&t=1
