Re: front panel audio connection to asus pk5 se mobo
The Front Panel Audio connection should have a couple of wires to plug in into your MotherBoard. Usually, the connectors are named and all you need to know is the exact location in your MotherBoard. I would suggest you to visit your MotherBoard manufacturer and download the manual for your MoBo. You will find in the manual a diagram of the MotherBoard which shows the location for those wires.

Make sure that your power connectors into the motherboard are all firmly connected. I had the same problem, the solution was that the CPU , 4pin molex connector was disconnected.This connector may initially be 6 or 8 pins but the 4 can be separated from the others. This should solve your issues.
So I have found the answer myself ;o) I removed the front panel of the computer, behind the panel the wires were labelled, I connected the cables to the connectors that I required and connected them to the MoBo, works like a dream!
to access your fan you may need to remove the harddrive cage that is in the way. and the flashing led? sounds like your harddrive activity light. if that is the case it is normal for them the blink erratically
The front audio in this case does not support HD sound. To get it to work you must instal the "HD Sound Application" that came with your hardware and disable the "Detect Front Panel Jack Detection" option. You'll have to manually switch between the two inputs.
This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).
