Re: Speakers and headphones

Give your board to the hardware vendor and tell him upgrade the BIOS . if you were using the same board with win XP for last four year then problem is with your BIOS.

I want to attatch my mic to my motherboard

desktop or laptop computer ?

3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack

Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack

Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -

One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)

Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.

You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.

click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7

click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select configure speech recognition then

you will see earphones with a speaker among a list set up a microphone headset with microphone then next and next again you should see your earphones with microphone being configured

click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list

make sure you have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box has a tick in it or

select the voice tab

make sure that you have the right media selected also

select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick in it

or you might have to depending on your operating system
Click start Control Pannel
click on Hardware and Sound

click on Sound
then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones

plug your headphones in
then select headphones

at the bottom it will say set as default
select that!!

then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones

hope this helps

Headphone connection to 945 gct - hm motherboard

Usually in the "Front Speaker" plug which is lime green usually but not always. Once you plug it in Windows should pop a window asking if you are using headphones or front speakers. Choose Headphones.

Hi axelmij,

If you are referring to a crackling noise coming from your headphone speakers it could be due to dust or a poor connection.
If this is the case, use an electronic contact spray and spray directly into the headphone socket and inside your fan speed knob mechanism to clear out any possible dust particles or corrosion which may be present.
Hope this solves your problem.
Best wishes,

What is wrong when I have sound with my headphones but not through my speakers?

Presuming you are using some form of controller in which you plug in the headphones too, the problem would be in your speakers. If you are plugging the headphones directly into your tower, try putting the speakers in the same jack that you are putting the headphones in. If you are using a laptop, you are likely, but not necessarily, facing a hardware problem (which means you can't do much about it).

Hey, I've got an HP Compaq D530 SFF desktop machine whose sound card uses the SoundMAX drivers. The problem is that when I connect earphones/headphones on the front panel, and try to listen to music or...

It is probably plugged into the motherboard somewhere. Try plugging it into the soundcard directly if it is in the motherboard. Or vice versa if it is plugged into the soundcard.

I have recently had my laptop completly serviced and now i have no sound what so ever and no option of being able to change this please help?

Merry Christmas!

Probably, you have problem with your sound driver. Try to reinstall the driver and see if it works.

Check if the speakers or headphones are connected to Light Green colored socket.

It is possible that after servicing, the engineer may have forgotten to connect the front panel connector, if you are trying to connect your headphones to the front panel connector. Try connecting your headphones to the rear panel connector.

It is also possible that the output device, like speaker or headphone is not plugged in properly or not working. Connect something else like other headphone.
Else give more details about you PC Model no. or Mother Board type.

Headphone problem

Did you installed all drivers ?

Are there FRONT audio jacks you are trying to connect your headphones/mic ?
Dit it work before ?

First install all (incl. audio) drivers and try to get audio from BACK connectors (Green is speakers/headphones, Pink is Mic.)
If it workson on REAR, but not on FRONT connectors, check if you have another icon for AUDIO settings in Control panel and try to set FRONT audio settings.

Check if FRONT audio connectors are connected to your motherboard.
