Also, depending on your motherboard, some may have option to choose front audio as ac97 or HD, it may be default set to HD, therefore when you hookup front panel audio connector thats ac97, it will not work.

In some boards I've seen, the front connectors are not connected by default.You may need to review the manual.

SOURCE: Front panel audio failure-DG33FB Intel mainboard

Your Intel DG33FB board by default was already setup for use. Your board has been configured for independent multi-streaming 5.1 audio (using the back panel audio connectors).
Your board should have come with a shielded front panel audio cable to connect front panel audio as shown on page 45, item B. The pin out for the front panel audio header is shown on page 46, table 5.
If you did not receive this cable you may need to contact Intel.
Check the Intel link included, which shows the cable needed for either AC'97 or HD cabling;
Audio standards: AC'97 and HD audio

Most motherboards will not play audio through the rear jacks when the board is connected to the front audio pins.
Intel like other manufactures do not mention this in their manuals.

Thanks for using Fixya!

04 Infiniti sedan w/ factory Bose. Front speakers are not working (no sound at all) and I adjusted fade all the way both ways. Back speakers are fine. What's up?

If the rear speakers are fine, perhaps I can narrow this down. Fuses must be OK. Steering wheel audio controls connect to the audio unit which has a preamp function. The W/BK outputs connect to the left front inputs of the Bose speaker amplifier; the GRN/RED outputs connect to the right front inputs. Your ear test confirms the front door speakers are not working, therefore there is no front door output from the amplifier. The amplifier stages for the front doors may not be working or no front door amplifier input is being received from the audio unit. The fader and balance controls do not show on the diagram so must be on the front panel. They could be defective. There is a remote possibility of broken/disconnected wires

As per your information, there might be some problem with front panel microphone.
1(a). please check the internal cable for audio from motherboard to front panel. if possible change the internal cable.
1(b). If not avoid using the front panel and use the extention cables for extending from back points of speaker connection and microphone connection. just like usb extention cable you will find the audio/mike cable extentions can be found in local electronics shop. so that when ever you want you can connect speakers or headphone and also microphone.

2. For entering to BIOS, use either DEL key or F2 key when you power on the pc. In that you can see all the features. -

May be this helps to you.

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...

To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.

My desktop speakers not working but cable all plugged in and audio device working.

Hi tamjidzaee ,

Please follow the below steps to solve the problem that you have mentioned :-

  1. Check if the sound driver has been installed in your system, you can check this by going in the control panel's sound and audio devices option , if you find all options disabled and it reads no playback devices and no recording devices, then you have no sound driver installed. Therefore in this case you would require to install your sound driver using your motherboard cd.
  2. If you see your sound driver is installed in the audio options of the control panel and you also see the sound driver's name , then you need to check the volume in the volume settings to check if it has not been muted accidentally , if it has been muted , then please un mute it and things should work fine.
  3. A good idea would be use a headset and plug it into your motherboard in the slot where the speakers output is received , mostly the green round slot.
  4. If you have a front head phone option then you can try using it as well, if the headphone or headset works fine, then we are sure about two , things that the driver is installed successfully and there is a sound output from the audio output slots.
  5. Now, when you have checked the sound via headsets then you need to make sure that you are connecting your speakers in the green slot or the same slot which is working for headsets, remember headsets can be used to check the output in the back panel of your cabinet as well as front panel of your cabinet.
  6. Also check if there is any fuse in your speaker which has blown up so that you can replace it and it would start working, check the power cables and confirm they are not properly connected.
If the speakers work fine , then it's all ok , but if they don't you need to replace the speakers by checking them with your friend's pc or any other audio output device.
Hope his helps.

Windows 7 Audio Quadraphonic Not functioning well

Sounds like you are getting quad sound in the test process that checks them, yet when in windows media player or winamp (or whatever) your rear speakers aren't producing sound: Try setting your sound drivers to do something like "speaker fill" then you are set. I'm under the belief that stereo sounds aren't being matrixed into all 4 speakers.

I have a dell pc and I am not getting sound form the insignia 2.0 speakers.

You did make sure that the speakers are plugged into the green audio connections, in the back of your computer, right? If so, try this, go to your control panel and double click Sounds and Audio Devices. Under speaker settings, go to Advanced and check to see if its set for desktop speakers. Also, in control panel, go to Sound Effects Manager and do a speaker test and see if they work. Hopefully this will help.

Speakers not working, but cables all plugged in...

No drivers for your soundcard, this is a computer issue not a speaker issue, contact dell, if you can understand a word they say, ask them "I have Dimension (model number here), I need to know how to install my sound drivers", if you dont know how to do this.
