    And which one of the hundreds of sound cards with green, orange and black ports might you have?

    I fixed my 5.1 surround sound by manually installing the audio driver from the manufacturer.

    In device manager from the old control panel I'll bet you have an audio controller that says something like "High Definition Audio device." Probably going to need to change that driver to a manufacturer specific one.

    Is the Genius SM-Live card an add on in addition to onboard audio on the motherboard?

    Also, when you open control panel->Hardware and Sound->Sound, speakers and headphones is probably the default device and it shows speakers and headphones associated with C-Media PCI Audio? Right click on speakers and headphones and click on configure speakers. Do you have 5.1 option there that needs to be enabled?

    From Google, looks like the card is getting misidentified. I'm downloading very slowly the Genius driver package to look at it. It's here:
    Genius

    I assume the bottom one for Windows 8 is what we are going to need.
