Today I purchased the Logitech Z906 sound system. I'm trying to use it with my computer however I can't get it to work, this is my first sound system so I am a noob and I require help. It says on their website that only some motherboards will be compatible, am I fine with an Asus M5A97 R2.0, or do I need to purchase an additional sound card? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
I tried plugging in all the cords connected to the sub woofer. This is what my Realtek Audio Manager looks like http/prntscr.com/705enh Here is what my sound devices looks like http/prntscr.com/705f3j forgive me if I'm missing something obvious. I also talked to a close friend who has the same set of speakers and he said there is also a grey cord that goes with the green black and orange bunch that plugs into your motherboard, am I missing that?
I just downloaded the latest realtek audio drivers and the problem still persists, however I plugged the green cord into my phone and it works flawlessly, great audio quality, the whole package. Could my motherboard's back panel audio be the issue? Should I purchase a new Motherboard?
I don't see how my motherboard wouldn't be the problem, but if you say so I'm glad I don't have to shell out another hundred dollars or so. Anyways, I've read through the manual and still nothing seems to solve my problem.
