I have a Kingsonic 5.1 home theater. It has a button on it to change the input, ie; 5.1 & 2.1. But when i change it to 5.1,no sound comes from the speakers. Any fixes???

Then try using this kind of cables for connecting the PC to the 5.1 back panel

What I mean is that you need 5.1 input for 5.1 sound.
If the white and red cables that are now connected are coming from a TV, what you can do is using a splitter ( something like http://www.computercableinc.com/ccinc/images/CABLE-Audio-Y-Splitter-2-RCA-Male-to-1-RCA-Female-Cwholesale.jpg ) for connecting the BR and BL ports too. The only issue would be that you'd get the same sound from the front and back speakers and not 5.1 (different sound).
