So Basically when I try to watch YouTube videos the speakers only play from the front 2 but not rear. But when playing games the rears start working. I have previously use Via audio which was way better and the speaker fill worked perfectly fine however I changed motherboard.

I have also tried uninstalling the drivers but without the realtek software I cannot reroute my jacks has I only have 3 plugs that I can plug my jacks in and I need to change mic to rear etc.
I have tried changing the environment to room however that sounds terrible.

I currently don't want go buy a soundcard as they're costly.

Is there honesty any way to fix this?

I also had the same issue on my creative speakers. It isn't that there is no output but its so faint it's inaudible. I configured the output on the realtek ui to 5.1 , and matched the jacks accordingly (line out,rear and csub I was mismatching colour with line out). It sounds fine now however if I get 2.1 instead of 5.1 its always at application layer misconfiguration.
I should mention that I have an on board sound card (supremefx)
