My PC has Creative Inspire 5.1 5300 speaker system. when it plays mp3s (through winamp) i have noticed that only the left and right speakers actually have sound output.I have nVidia Soundforce onboard sound (with 5.1 capalbilty) but i cannot seem to get the centre or rear speakers to output sound. Is this normal? or is there an option to enable full surround sound?

mp3`s will be in stereo so the most you can hope for regards multi channel surround from a stereo sourse is dolby pro logic.this will extract a centre and rear channel from the stereo signal to give a surround effect.( rear channel will be mono and output the same from both rear speakers)

try playing a dvd or game that has dolby 5.1 sound and see if it works.or set up for pro logic for stereo material.
