    Yes. Mine is a M2N-SLI, and I observe same problem. If you connect the headphones, you cannot use the speaker's output. I didn't solve yet the problem, but it seems just a connection problem-.

Hi all. I've just recently upgraded my tower to a coolermaster stacker. It's a Maxi tower. Any how I've got the honor of having an Asus M2N E -SLI Motherboard, I had a lot of trouble to get the sound working, so I just removed the drivers to the CM 6501 Audio card know what I mean. So instead of using the HD audio I took the ac'97. And gues what It works on both front audio and rear audio output.

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.

Sound issues

both ports are integrated audio, both feed off the motherboard, the front ones come off a combo header with hd power lights,
on the back you should have 4 speaker out (surround sound), line in, mic in, 4usb2, 1firewire, 1ethernet, 1parallel, 1vga, 1rgb, 1ps2 keyboard, 1ps2 mouse
fffaab4.jpg try a different speaker out,
you may be attached to one of the fillin ports for speakers that go behind you in surround sound
pink is mic
light blue is line in
light green is headphone/plain stereo
yellow is subwoofer
dark grey is wide
light grey is rear

SLI Video Cards

Enter you're bios & open you're manual to page 4-32. Set you're
configuration to dual video card. Use the AL software to tweak you're settings in windows. If you find this not helpful than please call Asus tech at: 1-812-282-2787, M-F 8:00AM-5:00PM EST. Unlike other companies you will not be on the phone very long. Please have the S/N of the board handy. This is located on the board, on the LTP port (White sitcker).

Good Luck!

Audio deosn't work on mobo

Hi Chris, the problem can be one of two issues. If the sound jack located at the back of the PC did function at the same time as the front case sound jack. Than the problem is the jack it's self is bad. (Back of PC). Someone had to hook up the front mic & sound jack to the motherboard. So disconnecting the front sound & mic may give you rear sound & mic.
Turn to page 2-29 in you're user manual for the Asus M2N-SLI. The pic shown is the default setting for the front case audio & mic. (What you do see are the two jumpers connected). So disconnect any connector & place a jumper over pins 9 & 10, (last two pins at the right of the two rows of pins). Place another jumper over pins 5 & 6.
Pin 1 is the first pin on the left bottom row (MIC2). Pin 2 is the first pin, left edge top row (AGND). Pin 8 is not installed but you still count its spot as if there was a pin. (This is how the board was setup from factory). Once you fix this you should regain sound & mic function at the rear of the PC. To fine tune the audio run the Asus sound effect manager. If you installed this software, (Recommended). If it’s not by you're clock than it’s in control panel.

On board audio problem

Hi, do you have you're manual? The answer to you're questions are there.
There are three femal plugs on the back side of the motherboard for sound out-put/mic-output & sound in-put. There ia also the option (For most cases), front plugs. Sound = out & mic=out.
See page 2-22/2-23, for rear connectors (What goes where).
Goto to page 2-29 to see Front panel audio connector (10-1 pin FP_Audio).

If you do not have you're user manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link below.

Have more questions? Please feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

Asus m2n-e sli Cpu changed settings on boots up

I could not find BIOS ver. 1302 for the M2N-E Mb. What I do know: Your dual core 4200 showing up as "unknown". Asus says:
This is because the BIOS does not have the relative CPU uCode to support this processor. Please simply update your BIOS to version 0902 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0902 can be downloaded from the link below:

Once you cpu shows up correctly, chances are that your over clocking will work and the bios will stop sending you back to change your settings.
