Can't get speakers to work with digital on-board audio??


Aug 12, 2009
Hi guys,

I got a GIGABYTE -X58A UD3R mobo. I'm using some old cambridge soundworks speaker system.

My problem is I cant seem to get sound from these speakers! I'm using the digital audio jack at the back of the motherboard that connects to the digital audio jack on the speaker amp.

I'm using windows 7 so is there something I need to enable there?

Also something to note, it seems that the only sound that works is the instant message notifyer on skype which is wierd.

any help appreciated.
