    Check to make sure you have Windows recognizing your setup.
    Go to Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices - Speaker Settings - Advanced -  Then select 5.1 setup in the drop down box.

    That should get it if you have the speakers plugged in correctly.

    Have you looked at the sound application that gets installed into the Control Panel?  
    There are controls to set what speaker is ported to what connector on the back panel.

    Realtek regularly updates their drivers, the ones one the ABIT site are way out of date.  Maybe try their latest driver release?

    By chance are you overclocking your motherboard?
