This is rare case as i was looking for post throughout d net. this is an issue on "speaker jack" failure. this is exactly the problem i have right now. those who have d same problem, pls follow up. this is the case.. when i plug d my speaker to the "speaker out" jack, it only produce sound on single speaker. pulling the plug halfway out temporarily correct problem. this is not a problem on driver, etc... this is my main concern, is it safe if i remove the onboard audio ports and replace one from another motherboard? i know its not easy, i thinkin of taking the risk.
No you will run into alot of problems and you will destroy *********** board.My advice is that you get a different set of speakers that have a pin with suited size for your sound card. the problem is that the pin of your current speakers is too long for the jack and as a result only contacts for one speaker are fully connected. Your sound card has no problem,but if you realy want these speakers just buy another sound card and install it and hopefully it will work. DONT REMOVE YOUR SOUND PORT it is very risky

Typically, PC sound chips, especially those integrated on the motherboard, are relatively low power-out devices. You can use headphones with them usually fairly well, but to really generate any sound quality and/or volume, you need a set of amplified speakers to accompany it. That said, if you are using the proper delivery equipment, and you know there are no issue with the speakers, low volume then does become an issue. You have few options if the sound chip on your motherboard is going south. You can buy another PC (not cost effective usually), or you can buy a replacement sound card to install in the device. You must be sure that you get one that works in your machine. Many Dell machines use low-profile cards so a full-height one may not work. Also, ensure that that if you get a PCI sound card that there is an available PCI slot for it. You may , in some cases, have a free PCIe x1 slot. They make sound cards that fit those as well. Once you get the new card, you will need to go to the setup menu (CMOS), and disable the onboard sound. After installing the new card, then load the drivers for it. Ensure you connect your front panel jacks cable to the sound card if the card supports it, otherwise you may lose the use of the front panel sound jacks. Lastly make sure to transfer the speaker connections from the motherboard jacks to the sound card jacks.
Find and Try reinstalling Driver for onboard audio look in device manager and see if there is an exclamation mark next to your sound hardware, also there maybe an audio out jack on your vid card that has priority over your onboard since its hd
Does your motherboard has an onboard sound card? If it has then read your motherboard manual especially the audio section of the manual where the topic is described how and where to plug in which audio jacks coming out from you speakers (speaker system) to which part of the external audio ports usually located at the rear end of your computer case. You need to install the sound card drivers to activate audio properties of your computer of course, to actually use the speakers. You can also use the front panel audio port of your computer case where you can connect your speakers to as well. In case your motherboard did not come up with sound card installed you can always install an external sound card and then connect the speakers to the proper external audio ports of the card. Just read your motherboard or sound card manual. It is all there.
In most cases the front jacks are in addition to the rear ones. It's not an either/or situation. If the speakers are connected to the rear jacks (usually green for speakers and pink for mic) and there is no sound, you might have a problem with the onboard sound. Try connecting to the rear jacks with a good set of speakers and try it out. If this doesn't work then we can go from there.
Hi ragnar590, Please go over pages 5-12 to 5-17 in your manual. Allow Realtek's auto jack-sensing software to detect your sound jack. If this software is not installed, install it. (Double check your speaker system by plugging into another PC). If after doing all this & you still have intermittent sound, either the jack coming off the board is bad or the onboard sound chip is bad. The Asus P5ND2-SLI was made in 2005 & is no longer in warranty. You can also try setting up the front panel audio coming off the board if your case has front or side audio/mic jacks. See page 2-31 in your manual. It this options works than the problem is with the rear sound jack. If this does not give you sound than the audio chip is the problem. Suggest you buy a PCI sound card & disable the onboard ALC850 within the bios.
Hi, having used MSI boards myself I found their website very useful.
Open your case, locate and right down your board serial number and revision number, Logon to the website [Google MSI] go to downloads. and locate the latest audio drivers for your board. This should fix the problem, if not then you have a failure on the onboard sound.
At boot up go to bios and disable onboard sound. Install a PCI sound card with drivers and that will then give you sound again.
