    My front panel comes with

    Left audio+ret (double female sockets)
    Right audio + ret (double)
    Grnd (one female)
    Mic + ret (double)

    but according to the manual's diagram there's no pin for mics.
    I tried several times now audio is somewhat OK (but left still not)

    How can i connect the mic? & left audio?
    can you give me a clear diagram.

    thanks for your answer,
    but the thing is,
    When i go to my sound & audio device properties it shows two devices
    Sound Playback - C-media rear panel
    C-media front panel

    Sound recording - C-media rear panel

    C-media front panel

    when i go to front panel on recording it gives separate mic &CD volume controls.
    it means the mother board supports two audio devices for both playback and recoding.....
    I think in that case I can use another mic input for front panel also... pls help.

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.

    Your board does not support front Mic.

    Support Universal Audio Jack (only Front Audio Jack)

    What I do is buy a 3 way splitter & connect one end into the back of the PC (sound out put). Than connect my speaker to 1 of the two split ends, connect the headset (audio out) to the other (sound out). Plug the headset mic into the jack at the back of the PC. Link to your board.

All you need to do is refresh the driver.

You can do this by going to the device manager.

You can click START then go to CONTROL PANEL then go to HARDWARE AND SOUND and look for DEVICE MANAGER.

Look for "Sound, video game controllers" from the list. Double-click or click the expand button on the far left. You should see the name of your device. i.e. Realtek HD Audio.

You need to right-click on the device. There should be a menu that would come up. Choose UNINSTALL. Just click the OK button on the next pop-up. Just make sure you DON'T select the "delete the driver software" option.

**If you have two Audio devices then you can uninstall the other one too. Because your computer will re-install it automatically and reset the settings to default with it. There this procedure fixes a lot of driver settings/configuration issues.

Close all the pages and RESTART the computer.

You should see on the bottom right of your screen when it gets to your background that the driver is installing. When it says "Driver re-installed successfully!" then you can test the front headphone jacks.

Please feel free to give you comments, questions and please do rate this solution.

I am not getting any sound from desktop speakers..i have sony driver installed

Onboard audio is disabled in the BIOS
The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins. Go to the Advanced > Peripheral Configuration menu to make sure onboard audio is enabled.
Audio settings in the sound mixer are incorrect
Check your audio mixer software to ensure audio is not muted or the volume level is not turned too low.
The speakers or headphones may be connected to the wrong jacks
Make sure you connect all speakers to the correct jacks. If you connect them to line-in or microphone jacks, they won't work.
Audio drivers are not properly installed
Check Device Manager under the Sound, video and game controllers section for any errors associated with the audio driver. Reinstall the audio driver if necessary.
Audio to back panel is muted if front panel is connected
Check your audio mixer software for a setting that mutes back panel audio if you have plugged headphones into a front panel audio solution. Uncheck this setting to allow audio to both the back and front.
Sound Playback is set to wrong device
In Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices, go to the Audio tab. Check the default device for sound playback; there may be multiple selections. Select the desired device, either rear panel or front panel.

K9N6PGM2 motherboard cant get front audio micrphone and headphone sockets to work

In my case, it was solved by tweeking the sound utility, and not by touching anything in the computer:

  1. Make sure "Realtek Audio Manager" is installed (should come with the drivers)
  2. Start The "Realtek Audio Manager" (can do it by plugging earphones to the audio jack on the rear - the one the works)
  3. Look for the configuration tab - something like "Connector Settings"
  4. Set the "Disable front panel jack detection" checkbox
  5. Press [OK]
  6. Try again to connect the earphones to the front panel
See link from MSI forums:

MSI motherboard, Front Audio Panel for headphone don't work.

On this motherboard you can enable or disbale the rear panel audio using jumpers on the motherboard. The jumper is labelled JAUD1. I'm assuming that if you select the rear panel, then the front panel will not work. This info is on page 36 of the PDF manual which can download from MSI. Good luck, the link to the manual follows:-

Left speaker gives no sound

There could already be a problem with the speaker jack, if only one channel is consistently giving no sound on your system.

Try turning the male (connected to speaker wire) jack and you might hear a static crackle while doing this. If you get both channels to produce sound this way, you already have a failing audio jack, and may need replacement later on.

Hope this helps.
