I have a speedlink stage 5.1 PCI sound card with up to date drivers, and i just bought the logitech X-530 surround sound system. I have all the cables connected ok, but when i configure the speakers in Win7 (64-bit) to 5.1, the test just plays all of the chimes through the left, right and bass. Nothing comes out of the centre or rear speakers. Can anyone help with this?

Don't think there is any software involved, nothing like the realtek audio manager, and not much support (at least i managed to download a decent driver). The card is very cheap, i only got it to fix a problem i no longer have. I can run 5.1 fine on my onboard realtek sound, it just seemed a shame not to use the card.
Technetconnects, youtube will only play through the 2 front speakers because it only supports 2.1. You need to enable speaker fill in your sound settings to get sound through all of them. The same will be true for mp3 music.

yup, i set it to 5.1 and it shows all 6 speakers in the little animation, but when i click them to test the sound only comes out of the front left or right or both, even if it is supposed to be coming out of the rear or centre.
