You need windows to put out a 5.1 signal for the sub to be used. Make sure that you are.

What speakers? Mine have a switch that let you select between different modes. Do you need to adjust the sub/speakers to 5.1 as well?

2.1 systems usually have the satellites plug into the sub I think. The sub goes into the green plug like normal speakers.

On windows 7 click the start button, type in sound, and go to the control panel option. Click on your speakers, and select configure. Change it to 5.1 and see if it works. Speakers in green, sub in black. You might get all three working.
