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.

Front audio port on chassis not working.


This port will only work if it is connected to the motherboard using the case fly leads. To check the correct socket on the motherboard, look in the manual (available on the ASUS website)

Anybody can tell me how to connect the front side headset plugs, I think is not connected to the board


Understand you can not use the rear speaker ports and the front speaker ports at the same time. You must choose one or the other. If you still have you're manual turn to page 9. Follow the instruction to connect the cases front audio ports and the MBs audio jumpers.
If you need the MB manual open the link provided by MSI; http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=manual&maincat_no=1&prod_no=171
If you download the manual you will also need Adobe reader installed to view the manual. Adobe is a free download;

Front and side audio ports break very easely. Another option to this would be to buy splitters for the rear audio ports. (Sound and Mic). 2-each; http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=2009&sku=40422&relatedItem=true

The front 3mm port is disconnected and I don't know where to hook it back up. I can't tell from the manual.


The front 3mm ports are for mic input / headphones output. The pin connectors are as follows. You need to use the JAudio header, which are in the lower-right corner of the motherboard closest to the front of the case when it's installed.

This header has 14 pins, and allows user to connect the front audio out put cable with the PC front panel. It will disable the output on back panel audio connectors.
Within this header, pin 1 is in the lower left corner, and pin 14 is in the upper right corner, like this:

2 ... ... ... 14
1 ... .. ... 13

The pinouts are:

1 Mic in/center
2 Ground
3 Mic power/Bass
4 Audio power
5 Right line out/Speaker out Right
6 Right line out/Speaker out Right
7 Reserved
8 Key
9 Left line out/Speaker out Left
10 Left line out/Speaker out Left
11 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
12 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
13 Left line in/Rear speaker Left
14 Left line in/Rear speaker Left

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!

Speakers


Hi ozlion, I have been through the manual for your board & other than the front speaker/mic connector I have not been able to find a jumper to do what you are asking. You can download the manual for yourself at this link. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=522&DetailName=Manual&DetailDesc=661GX/800-M%20%20(V1.0B)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=82&LanID=0

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!

No sound from front panel of GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H


Aloke,
It does mention in your manual (top of pg. 28 -notes), that in order to use the HD Front Panel Audio connector the pin configuration are different than the AC97 connections. Your current case is set up for AC97. You will have to contact Mfg. for the case click the link for Gladiator support:
http://www.a-top.com/jsp/info.jsp?number=3

You can try this, open up your control panel, look for an icon that's named Sound Effects Manager. Open it. Click speaker configuration.
This is part of Realtec's software. This is where you can setup & check both front & back ports (Audio & Mic).
If this part of Realtec did not install goto Gigabyte & down load your audio software & re-install it. (Just a suggestion).
http://www.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=2554

Hope this helps. If you make the call it will be a fix.
Good luck.

MSI 915o comboAudio front panel


Some cases come with a Mic & speaker jack/ cable. These jacks sit within the case. Rather than using the rear Mic which is (colored pink) & speaker (colored green). These 2 colored cables run from the front of the case & out through an emty hole in the back of the case. Which you connect them to the rear of the boards Mic in (pink) & sound (green). Now you can use your front audio jacks for both mic & sound. This may sound strange but I have come across many cases just like this. Its not uncommon to have 2 front usbs & a 1394 connect on to the board as well. Without your manual I'm sorry I can not help you fauther.

Asus m2n E Sli board audio


I had the same problem, and it went away when I connected the the front speakers via the 'ac97' connector from the case, instead of the HD audio connector. It seems using the HD audio connector, as well as using no connector and forgetting to put back the jumpers originally set over 2 of the front audio connectors pins, will cause no audio from the back ports.
