Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

No sound from front panel of GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H

Case: A-Top Gladiator AT878BK-C
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H

As per the manual, in the Realtec HD Audio supports both rear and front panel audio ports simultaneously. However, I hear sound from rear panel only. I have connected the Case front panel connector to the MB front panel pins.
In fact the key connector matches with the MB pin layout.

There is no documentation for the Case.

I could not find any settings in the BIOS or the Realtec control panel.

Can you please advise what seems to be problem.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the advice and great help.

    Actually, the problem worked out by itself and I did not have to make any emails to either manufacturer. The connection was fine and the case connector was also fine.

    After I did fully connect the 5.1 speakers to the rear port. (I did not do that while I had the problem) and the gigabyte realtek audio control panel properly recognized them and after the speakers were playing audio properly, I reconnected the headphones to the front panel. Lo! Behold they were working just fine.

    Sorry I taking quite some time to post this response.

    For now, I am a happy camper wrt this issue.

    Thanks and take care.

Aloke,
It does mention in your manual (top of pg. 28 -notes), that in order to use the HD Front Panel Audio connector the pin configuration are different than the AC97 connections. Your current case is set up for AC97. You will have to contact Mfg. for the case click the link for Gladiator support:
http://www.a-top.com/jsp/info.jsp?number=3

You can try this, open up your control panel, look for an icon that's named Sound Effects Manager. Open it. Click speaker configuration.
This is part of Realtec's software. This is where you can setup & check both front & back ports (Audio & Mic).
If this part of Realtec did not install goto Gigabyte & down load your audio software & re-install it. (Just a suggestion).

Hope this helps. If you make the call it will be a fix.
Good luck.

I need the front panel connections location, which ones go where for the ga-73pvm-s2h motherboard


Gigabyte has the manual for the GA-73PVM-S2H on the product support site: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2691#manual . The full manual is near the bottom of the list. The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://download1.gigabyte.us/Files/Manual/motherboard_manual_ga-73pvm-s2h_e.pdf . The Motherboard Installation Guide at the top of the list is a generic manual for all motherboards.

The front panel connections are shown on page 28 of the manual. There are two lines of pins. From left to right, the inside line of pins are the Power LED +, Power LED -, Power Switch +, Power Switch -, then the Case Speaker +, Case Speaker -. (The speaker - is next to a Case Fan connector; so there are a couple of blank spots between the speaker + and - pins.) On the line of pins at the edge of the board, again from left to right: HD LED +, HD LED -, Reset Switch -, Reset Switch + . There is no contact on the last pin in this group.

I hope this helps.

I want all the pin details of motherboard diagram for GA- 8i845GV


Download the manual from Gigabyte;
http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_8i845gv_e.pdf
In order to view the manual you'll also need to download and install Adobe reader; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
With Adobe you can zoom in on any page. The manual is put together in such a way that you'll be able to connect everything. Most people have trouble connecting the, chassis front panel. Since wire colors vary from case to case you'll find each two pin jumper will share a specific wire color. Normally this common wire color is white and is used as negative.
(Except for the MB speaker). Common wire color for the speaker is, "red for positive and black for negative".
Take you're time and follow the manual.

Good luck!

I need the front panel pin layout for a Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ motherboard. (that is the power switch, reset switch, LED etc.)


Open the link for your Gigabyte MB 8S648FX-l;
http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_8s648fx_rz(c)_c.pdf
This is your manual. Go to page 15. You can enlarge the image if needed.
You will need Adobe Reader to view the manual. If you need Adobe it is a free download;

To view the main link for the Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ click below;

Case front panel wire colors can be confusing. Most cases use colored wires as their +positive. White is commonly used as the -ground wire. Except when connecting an internal speaker. Black colored wire is ground.

Cheers!
