I have a Medion Erazer X6811 laptop running Windows 7. I'm trying to plug in this 5.1 channel headphone which works like 5.1 speakers.

I plugged the 3 connectors into the laptop, and set the computer to play in 5.1 in Realtek HD Audio Manager. When prompted, I configured the 1st front connector (green one) to be the front speaker, and the blue connector to be the side speaker.

However, the black connector maps to the front speaker as well, and pink maps to the subwoofer... so the "microphone" jack just disappears and I can't use it!

In summary, I can only set which speaker the green connector maps to, and not the other connectors. How can I configure every single connector to which speaker I want? Are there other solutions?
