Motherboard sound issues

Hello. I just got a brand new custom built computer, only to find out that when I plug my stereo speakers into the back lime green port, I get almost nonexistent sound. I plug them into the front lime green port, and they work perfectly. Is something wrong with the back audio jack, or do I not have something plugged in correctly? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The black sound out jack is for the rear speakers in a surround sound configuration. I only have two speakers (a 2.0 system). i remember reading another one of your posts to someone else telling them to use jumpers? or to unplug something?

    I have HD audio as well and it seems the problem was that HD audio was not configured in the BIOS. The person who built my computer enabled HD and soon my speakers worked perfectly.
    Thanks for all of your help.

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!

    That other person had called Asus so he could use HD for the front speaker out jack. He also noticed a differance in sound & soon lost the out-put at the rear speaker jack. Bottom line is if you want to use both front & rear (bounce between them), than use the black jack at the rear but if you intend to use just the rear you'll need to remove the FP_Audio connector from the motherboard & place a two (2-pin) jumpers across pin 5 & 6 and the other across pin 8 & 9.

    Pins 8 & 9 are the last two pins to the right of the set of pins for FP_Audio. See pg. 2-29



    Hope this helps!

P5KPL-AM speaker beep


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Sadael.

Yes some-times the case/computer chassis does not have an internal BIOS/CMOS beep code speaker built in.

So what you will need to do is go to your local computer store and purchase a mainboard beep code speaker. You may even find it online at your favorite computer store.

The modern speaker is very small compared to the older mainboard beep code speakers.

Your computer will continue to work without the speaker, the beep code speaker is there to help diagnose/troubleshoot problems when they occur.

Take care!

Unpluged my computer to get repaired, have 3 different speaker type plug ins the back, don't remember which one to use. Their color coded, blue-green- pink


In many cards, the microphone connector will be pink, the speakers or line out or headphone will be lime green, and the stereo line in will be light blue. Additional jacks may be present on newer soundcards for rear and mid surround speakers.

This is a widely accepted color standard for computer sound card input and output jacks, but connector colors may vary between different brands. If you think you have a nonstandard card, consult your soundcard's manual or the manufacturer's web site before making any connections.

MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard audio VERY quiet.. I can't tune the volume very loud at all. The board is brand new. I can hear the audio from the external speakers when volumes are set to highest levels...


Check to make sure the following:
  • You have the speakers plugged into the 'green'-colored sound connectors at the back of the mobo.
  • Also make sure that your 'Windows Sounds' aren't set low. Sometimes I set my Sound Properties (accessible when you double-click the speaker icon in the taskbar) to 'lose' that setting, to keep things simple. But if your overall volume is at 100%, and this setting is at around 20% or below, you could experience this issue.
  • If these are not powered speakers, you know what I'm saying here...
I'll check back in later to see if this helped you. Mike

Hello
You should have your speakers plugged into output or green hole in back of pc.

Then you may need to go to control panel/sound/ and configure speakers for 4.1 or 5.1.

If you have only 2 speakers use the stereo setting.

If this still does not work try reinstalling the sound drivers for your motherboard or sound card.

I can't have a sound and audion output.What i need


Good day sir/ma'am, hi, If your motherboard does not produce sound, it could be any of the following:
  1. Your device driver for the sound is not yet installed. locate the CD that come with your motherboard. your sound card model is realtek alc 655 as shown in this website : http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/content.php?S_ID=209 if you cannot find the driver download it from this site: http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=209
  2. Your volume is either in mute or i a low volume setting. Check the taskbar at the lower right side of the desktop if you see a speaker icon, right click it and set the volume level to high.
  3. Your speakers is not connected to the audio port. Check the baby plug stereo speaker connector to the green audio port at the back panel of the PC, (usually pink, blue and green are side by side)
  4. Your speakers are not working properly. If you have portable mp3 players, plug in your speakers to it for testing.
  5. Worst come to worst if your green audio port is the defective one. you can use the blue one provided you enable 4 channel, so sound is sent to the blue port.
  6. your built in sound card is bad, you can get a replacement soundcard of any brand, provided its PCI slot. or get those small USB type sound card.
If I miss anything feel free to ask, hope these will solve your sound problems.

No audio on custom built computer using Abit NF8V


I'm assuming you have the little jacks for the speakers to plug into.... As crazy as this sounds, make sure you have the speakers plugged into the right jack. The icons by the jacks are not all that clear. You might have the speakers plugged into the "Line In" jack? I've done it myself and I'm a Computer Engineer!

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
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
