5.1 Surround sound problem and not working

Um I just got a brand new set of Logitech X-530 70 watts RMS 5.1 Black Speaker System from newegg. Um i am running vista ultimate and i am trying to get 5.1 surround sound working. I have the newest sound card drivers installed for my asus m2nsli deluxe board am2 and when i configure them it shows that the front left and right are not the front and left in right on my desk in 5.1 surround sound. When i check 7.1 the front left and right speakers are playing for the side speakers. I dont know what the problem is it might be vista being bad or its just something wrong with the speakers them selves.

Cheers

Have you made sure you updated vista there seems to be a lot of people with the exact same problem who are runing on vista.

All 3 need to be plugged in as 5.1 is carried through those 3 cables.

2 channels per cable.
