Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

3 Answers

Sound issues I have two ports for speakers: one on the front of the computer and one on the back. The one on the front works perfectly, but the one on the back gets dull sound. It still plays audio, but it is much quieter. I have the volume maxed completely. I was thinking maybe the motherboard is defective, since the back port is integrated audio. Any suggestions?

    I've tried the speaker cord in every out. It only semi-works in the line one.

  • antlob Jul 18, 2008

    It only semi-works in the lime/light green out. I think the jack may be defective, but I really dont know too much about motherboards so Im not sure.

  • antlob Jul 19, 2008

    I can't seem to find that.

  • antlob Jul 19, 2008

    Chris, that sounds look a good idea, but that means I won't be able to use earphones when i need to?

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
Sound issues - 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

    from a workmate,

    Sorry for the delay, in reply

    If you dont have surround sound options in Control Panel for your onboard sound, the drivers are possibly missing, or damaged. Even on-board sound has drivers, that should be available from the motherboard makers support pages for download. Cant be sure, 50% chance, that the right drivers will enable features and volume controls and give you the proper sound.

    • Dr My arm is broken

    • Then lets break your leg as well

    http://support.asus.com/download/downloa... get the audio drivers, and any others you may not have installed, which are listed separately to the motherboard drivers,

    Many surround sound outputs are supposed to go into amplifiers

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...


To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.

  • Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  • Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  • Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  • Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

My computer has not sound when i connect the speaker from back


Do they work if you connect to the front? If they dont it could be a Driver issue, download Drivers from Dell Website and reinstall. If this doesnt solve your probelm then check jack and wires for damage, if sound works from the front jack port then maybe back jack port is damaged.

My speakers work but there is no sound coming out of my computer


Try rolling back your sound drivers (control panel, system, hardware, device manager, sound and audio devices, right click your sound hardware, properties, drivers), if this fixes the issue go to microsoft update, run the 'custom' scan...it should show you an update to your sound card/hardware, click the little "+" sign beside the update and click the little "Do not show this update again" checkbox. This will prevent automatic updates from "fixing" your drivers. Occasionally Microsoft sends out updates that are incompatible with a particular machines' setup.
Hope it helps.

Can't get headphone jack on front of computer to work


The headphone jack up front may not be connected to the PC's integrated audio on the motherboard (or to the PC's sound card if you purchased one with the system instead. There'll be an audio cable running from the front of the computer to a port on the motherboard. If you look at this motherboard diagram for the Vostro 220 (not the 420 or 220s), it'll be the port numbered "15" that's the opne for the audio for the front panel. You don't need the speakers plugged on the back to have the headphones work, but having them plugged in will at least tell you if the sound is working or not.

Motherboard sound issues


Hi antlob,
Normally one would think something is wrong but if you look at page 2-23 in you're manual you'll see you're using the wrong plug-in (Lime green) (Rear). Plug you're spreaker jack into the
(Black sound out jack). See if that makes a differance?
To fine tune you're sound you can open Asus/RealTek sound effect manager listed in control manager. This program has connector sensing software & other goodies.

Enjoy!

Sound from 4 speakers cut off..


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks.

Surround Sound Center Speaker/Sound Card issue


You need to use a digital interface cable between the sound card and the speakers to get all of the 6 channels to work properly.
