    I need to know exactly what motherboard you have. Has your mic always worked, or are you trying to get it to work?

Hi

Pin arrangement for Front panel Audio is usually:

Pin 1 Left MIC-IN Pin 1 right GROUND
Pin 2 Left MIC VVC (or MIC Power, or MIC BIAS) Pin 2 Right empty
Pin 3 Left R EAR (or R OUT) Pin 3 Right R RETURN
Pin 4 Ground or Empty Pin 4 Right empty
Pin 5 Left L EAR (or L OUT) Pin 5 Right L RETURN

This arrangement should apply to both the HD AA/FP or the Standard AC'97 Headers.

I hope this helps

Hello. When I plug my headphone with mic into the front panel jacks, it does not work. Now if I disconnect my speakers and plug it in the back jacks, it will work. However, the front joacks are there for...


Open up your case.
You should see cables running from the front panel to the motherboard. On the motherboard you will see a multi-pin connector. What is your exact ASUS motherboard model? Here's a generic ASUS one. You will see this on the motherboard where the front panel connects to the board. A bunch of pins will terminate here.

Notice the pin labelled MIC. You will see GND etched on the motherboard. Use this to orient yourself. The Mic one is just below the GND pin. Connect it here. Notice the entire top row is devoted to FP_Audio or Front panel Audio. There are other places to connect it (e.g., if you just want stereo sound, there's a left and right FP_R and FP_L).

Move the mic connector over to the Mic pin if there is one. If not, you can get a cable at your local computer supply shop. As you can tell from the others, they are very basic wires with simple terminals.

I want to know where the connection points are on the motherboard for the front mic and audio jacks. I have a epox ep-5pdaj motherboard. Will you send me a diagram please.


close to the back panel of the mainboard, below the back i/o connectors and 3.5mm audio jacks.

You need to remove the two jumpers from the pins, this is where you connect the front panel audio connector, if your case has each wire separate. then please look at this webpage http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-015851.htm look at the part "For AC97 Front Panel Audio" PIN 1 should read MIC. If not, then scroll down, you are reading the wrong part of the page.

Connecting the power swtch cables and others


I understand from this post that you need to connect the mobo to your casing/chassis.

There is a detailed diagram that can be found on the owner's manual that ships with your board. In case you do not have this, you can find one from this site:

Hope this helps.

Lost in the wiring :(


Hi bossman9628A, normally its the wire colors that messes everyone up when trying to connect the front case wires to the motherboard. The MSI RX480 Neo2-F, AKA MS-7151 MB is no different but does use a second set of pins just to help you get more confused.
Gather up all your case wires. You'll notice there is one color that is common. Chances are that color is white & is being used for the ground wire. Other colors like blue, green, red, light blue, light green & light red ECT are used for positive. The speaker uses black for ground/negative.
So looking at JFP1 at pin 1 is positive +. Pin 3, which is to the right of pin 1 is negative -.
The manual does show you which pin is negative & which is positive. Pin 1 = (HD_LED_P). The _P stands for positive.
Pin 3 = (HD_LED_N). The _N stands for negative. Do not connect the Power led at JFP2. Keep the power led connected at JFP1.
Do connect the case speaker at JFP2. Most cases do use 2-pin connectors but others use 3 & 4 pin connectors. If your case is such you can remove a wire from a connector by using a decent needle. There is a small black tab that you can pull towards your self while pulling the wire out. You can than slide the wire back into the connector where you need it. You'll know the wire is inserted correctly because you'll hear or feel it snap into the connector. If by sme chance you get a led backwards, don't freak out. The leds use 5v DC. Just shut down the system & turn that led 180deg & reconnect it.

Good luck bossman9628A!

Pluging in extra usb ports/Mic and headphone jacks from the tower


Answer me this. You're case is an Antec tower? The motherboard is the Asus P4P800 SE ? Is this correct?
If you have you're manual you can see what goes where on the board for front panel connector page. 2-31. (This diagram shows you how to connect the front mic & speaker).
To connect the Antec's front USB ports plug the case USB front connectors onto USB56 & USB78 shown on page. 2-30. Most case wires are already set within their USB connectors & the Antec's front USB connector should fit right on the mother board's pin's. If you need you're user manual, download from Asus by clicking on this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4P800%20SE&SLanguage=en-us

Good Luck!

Front panel how too


Hi slider1958,
You want to connect the new case's front sound & mic.
Just about every case will come with a pre-assembled connector for front USB's & sound & mic. Your board has a set of ten pins used just for this. They are loacted just under the boards rear external sound / mic silver housing. Noted in your manual on pg. 15. Named AUDIO1.
def37da.jpg Notice there is one pin missing. Line your case connector to match.
The manual is uncleare if you are able to use both rear speaker & front speaker at the same time. I would think not. Newer boards with HD do allow this.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

Mic dont work


luis_antonio, did you try to set your mic up from within windows?
Do this, open control panel, than open sound and audio devices. Click on the voice tab, click on the test hardware button.
Follow the on-screen instructions. Do you have mic?
There is no direct connection to the board. There is a connection for a front mounted case sound & mic connector if your case has this feature but chances are if your mic does not work connected to the rear of the board it will also not work with the front connector/jack.
Let’s check two other places first. While having opened the sound and audio devices window, click once again on the Voice tab if not already opened. Notice the Default device, (the name of the device). Click the Audio tab listed there is a Default device, (name of device). They should be named the same. Click cancel to close that window. Than open the system icon. System Properties will open. Click the hardware tab, than click the device manager button. Scroll down the list to Sound, video and game controller. Click the + sign & all the audio devices will open for you to see. Do you see a yellow ! point? If yes your sound device software needs to be re-installed. If no & you see a device named ADI AD1986A SoundMAX or AC97, than your current sound device is setup correctly. This device name above should match what you saw while in control panel's sound and audio devices. If after doing another reinstall & running the setup for mic through windows control panel still fails than the integrated sound chip on the motherboard is defective. If your board is under Asus three year warranty, return for a replacement board. If your warranty has timed out, than buy a PCI sound card & install onto a opened PCI slot.

Good Luck!
