Hi ozlion, there are a set of pins dedicated for front sound & mic operations. The fact that your front is loacated on the side of the case is irrelevant. If there was a difference in the sound between the rear jacks as opposed to the side jacks there may be an adjustment one could try but this is not the case. Both side & rear are not putting out through all your speakers.
This indicates a problem with the integrated sound chip or your speakers are defective. Suggest you swap your speakers with (a known good set) of speakers. If the good set of speakers do the same than the motherboards integrated sound chip is bad.
A work around would be to add a PCI sound card to your system. That's only if your board is out of warranty.
(So hate giving out bad news).

ozlion, if you have more questions feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

How to i connect my bose companion 2speakers to my computer and get sound

hi, first Identify what computer you have. Is It A Mac or PC?

If it is PC
There should be 2 small 3.5mm coloured sockets on the back,front (or both ) of the main box (tower/desktop unit). You should find that they are coloured Green and Red. Green is for sound output (Headphones/speakers or hifi) and the Red is for sound input or Recording. Used for things like microphones. Some will accept line sources such as mixers and Ipods pr cassette players, but please check your sound manager, mixer settings in your opperating system to make your you have an adjustable input setting for Mic and Line input attenuation as not all do and you may end up with a distorted mess. You may also find there is a small diagram of headphones or a microphone to indicate sound "in" and "out" ports.

If you have a mac

Appart fom me being envious :-) there are two sockets. On laptop types, on the side or on the tower types on the front,back or both. They have a diagram of a microphone and headphones. Hadphones is for audio output to headphones, speakers, hifi, dj mixer. The Microphone is a sound input. Please read above for microphone port usage. Hopefully this answers your question. Please also bear in mind that if you have no sound once plugged in, you may need to adjust the audio properties in the system in the system and/or program you may be using

I have a t3303. my external speakers suddenly stopped working. they work perfectly on my cd player and my headphones work perfectly in the headphone jack on hte tower?????

Check the settings for your speakers in the sound settings. It is possible that the settings have changed. It is also possible that the sound card has went bad in that port.

You can try downloading the latest sound drrivers from the following website

Also check if the speakers cables are plugged in , and there should not be any headphones plugged in to the front ports of the tower. Also check if the volume control setting are not set to mute

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue

So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.

Ipod classic works but no sound

This is common among the 30gb Video iPods. If you play your iPod on a Dock,
such as a iHome or other speaker device, for some reason, they like to take the
Mainboard out. Normally, if it's a headphone jack, the problem will start with
sound only playing on one side of the Headphones.

As a start, you can replace the headphone jack and see if it corrects your problem.
If not, you will need to replace the mainboard in your iPod.

Hi ozlion, I have been through the manual for your board & other than the front speaker/mic connector I have not been able to find a jumper to do what you are asking. You can download the manual for yourself at this link.

No sound

See if it works with the headphone jack instead of speakers.

If the sound is intermittant on the headphone jack too then the headphone jack is broken causing the speakers not to work. You could probably find a place to solder the jack.

If it works fine on headphones then either the speakers are bad or the amplifier on the mainboard has failed.
