Locating the s/pdif i/o connection on a m2n-x plus motherboard

Hi there,
i have a asus m2n-x plus motherboard and am using a nvidia geforce 9800 gtx pci/express 16x video card with hdmi output. i need to conect the video card to the mother boards internal s/pdif output so that i get hd audio through the hdmi cable for my tv. ive looked everywhere on the net and in help files for the location of the 7 pin(i think it is 7) i/o connection but have been unable to find anything. i also need to know which 2 pins to connect to. i believe one will be ground and not sure what the other needs to be.

PLEASE HELP ME
regards
gleno

This motherboard has S/PDIF out on back I/O port, you need an adapter.

    All I can see here is a Front Panel Audio connector, its internal and you can get the audio from that to the card, Page 1-28

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Did you see my 2nd comment? if you look at the page 1-28 you can see the pinout of the Front panel Hd audio.



    what do the connectors you have coming out from the card read on them? or do they read anything? I will have to see the user manual for the card and see whats going on.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    What brand Nvidia card you got? Asus? club3d? etc?

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    No, You CAN*T connect it to frontpanel, you need digital output. not analog. DON*T plug it to the front panel connector.



    Sorry to say your motherboard doesn't have the required connector.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Hold on for a moment I'm going over this and making sure what your options are.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Have a look on this page



    http://www.kingbo.com/technical/HDMI.htm



    your motherboard doesn't have the 3 pin spdif connector, or then its not documented on the manual, see the last picture on that page.



    here you can see whatkind of connector is required

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    In theory yes you could wire it to the backpanel connector, you would need to figure out which is GND and Which is spdif and the 3rd is vcc and you don't want to connect that.



    sorry for this mess of a solution, you can see how I woke up since my first comment on this thread.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Well again, You can try connecting it to the backpanel connector but the motherboard does not have a 3pin spdif connector at all, so the adapter posted by ginko is usless.



    Seems like you need a new soundcard or you need to wire it to the yellow spdif connector in the backpanel, do that at your own risk, theres 3 pins on that, vcc, ground, spdif, need to connect it to ground and spdif.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    I happen to have a Asus M2N - MX SE PLUS here. I can see the spdif_out connector above the front panel connector.





  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    looking at the manual that came with the board (MX PLUS), its documented and shown above the font panel connector in the manual also.

    So your version doesn't have this connector, only the yellow jack.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

I have done a monitor upgrade i.e, DELL S2340L FULL HD1080P monitor and my system has the following specs: Motherboard:M2N MX SE PLUS Processor: Athlon X2 Dual core @ 1.93Ghz RAM: ADATA 2GB DDR2...


Unless you are using a high end motherboard with the latest chipset, you will find it very difficult to get an "onboard" graphics chip to output that resolution. And your motherboard just doesn't have the power to display at that resolution. You will need to find a graphics card that will display that kind of resolution. The Nvidia GTX 650 or the Radeaon 7750 are both capable of handling that display and are cheap (in terms of graphics cards anyway).

I have an Asus M2N68AM-Plus Mobo and a Asus GeForce GTX 460 1028mg video. Onboard video works, but I cant get the board/windows7 Pro 64-bit to read the geforce gtx 460.


your motherboard is not a 64-bit board so it cannot support the windows 7 64-bit version. you should get the 32-bit version or upgrade your ram and then your windows should be able to read your onboard video.

Hi. i have a compaq presario sr5025an. I have 2 gig of ram. I have the intel core 2 duo e4300 processor. I am after a grapics card. cheers.


To get the full specs of your mainboard go to: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00893006&lc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3401230&dlc=en#N198

This motherboard has 1 PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

You could use:
Geforce 6 series (6800GT)

Geforce 7 series (GeForce 7950, GeForce 7900, GeForce 7800, GeForce 7600 ,
GeForce 7300, GeForce 7200 and GeForce 7100)

Geforce 8 series (GeForce 8800 Ultra, GeForce 8800 GTX, GeForce 8800 GTS, GeForce 8800 GTS 512, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GS, GeForce 8600 GTS, GeForce 8600 GT and GeForce 8500 GT)

Geforce 9 series (GeForce 9800 GX2, GeForce 9800 GTX+, GeForce 9800 GTX, GeForce 9600 GT, GeForce 9600 GSO 512, GeForce 9600 GSO and GeForce 9400 GT

Geforce 200 series (GeForce GTX 295, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce GTX 280, GeForce GTX 275, GeForce GTX 260, GeForce GTS 250 GeForce GTS 240 and GeForce GT 220

Geforce 400 series (GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 460, Geforce GTX 450)

With your system however I would recommend nothing greater than a Geforce GTS 250.

Please rate me high.
Thanks.

Asus P5GZ-mx compatible graphics cards


Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.
