Realtek problem with analog on-board..

    I have just installed RC1 and everything works great, except my sound. I have
    never had a problem out of it, even with the Beta 2, but with the new RC1 I
    cannot get 5.1 to work. Iv tried the auto-update that came with RC1 and it
    would not allow me to open or setup my speaker configuration in any way
    through Realtek's suplied menus and options, but I can go through the
    Playback Devices option and still set things to 5.1. But Even setting that to
    5.1, it still will not play any sound through my back left or right speaker.
    I uninstalled the driver, then installed the driver from Realtek's website
    for Vista, and still I have no working Realtek menus, and Im still limited to
    2.1.

    Upon attempting to open the Realtek icon in the tray or control panel, it
    brings up an error saying "HD Audio Control Panel for Vista has stopped
    working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will
    close the program and notify you if a solution is available." and removes the
    icon from the tray and refuses to use any of Realtek's settings and/or menu.
    The only thing I can do is use the Playback Device option, which does not
    allow you to choose what 'plug' is in which 'jack', like the Realtek's menu
    allows, which is needed for proper sound configuration. Even though Playback
    Devices has 5.1, and it reads my device as HD on-board and all (which I have
    checked it to make sure) it still will not use my rear two speakers. I'v seen
    many people with similer problems but I have yet to see an answer or
    solution. If anyone can figure this out or help, I will greatly appriciate
    it, as I really miss CoD2 and NFS:MW played in 5.1, not to mention my music
    sucks with just 2.1(or should that be 3.1 cause my center speaker works).
    Please Help! :(
