Using headfones while having rear ports for speakers

Hi Im trying to figure out how to use the front case ports for headfones while still having the rear port for speakers. I have tried to configure through the Control Panel - Sounds and Audio but it doesn't make no difference even though I tell the SPDIF to be the rear speakers port cna someone tell me if it is possible to do what I think should be simple to do??
My MOBO is MSI K8MM-V (MS-7142 v1)
Im sure last year this was working like this, but then I reformatted and cant get it happening again could it be I need to reinstall the driver again??
PS: I will try to do the driver re-install and post back if I can get it going this way or not later...

This MotherBoard has a special software that comes with it to handle all the sound related stuff. If you install this program it should be easy to control the sound then.

Sound problem

Hi ozlion, there are a set of pins dedicated for front sound & mic operations. The fact that your front is loacated on the side of the case is irrelevant. If there was a difference in the sound between the rear jacks as opposed to the side jacks there may be an adjustment one could try but this is not the case. Both side & rear are not putting out through all your speakers.
This indicates a problem with the integrated sound chip or your speakers are defective. Suggest you swap your speakers with (a known good set) of speakers. If the good set of speakers do the same than the motherboards integrated sound chip is bad.
A work around would be to add a PCI sound card to your system. That's only if your board is out of warranty.
(So hate giving out bad news).

ozlion, if you have more questions feel free to ask.
Good Luck!
