Default GA-EX58-UD5 surround sound issues advice needed

Hi guys,
having trouble with the 5.1 surround sound on th ga-ex58-ud5 mobo.
i am using videologic zxr-500 setup
Videologic ZXR-500 5.1 Speaker System: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
with the ga-ex58-ud5 mobo.
I colour marked the 3 jacks [orange, black and green ] before i took them out of my old system [ it worked A ok]. i then put them in the corresponding coloured holes on the new mobo
I have installed the latest realtek drivers from gagabyte site
GA-EX58-UD5 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver
when i built the system i attatched the yellow HD audio lead jack rarther than the AC97 jack onto the mobo, not sure what this does.
however, when i test the setup in windows or the realtek wizard the front stereo speaker work fine BUT
centre front comes out of side left [left when looking forward towards screen]
subwoofer side right
no sound from side speakers at all
do i need to change the jacks around - have tried but it makes noe difference so far
this is bending my head and i am having brainfarts
any advice greatly recieved
thank you
steve
