Hmm even if I can not see why you might need sound on the graphic card ..there is a possibility ..to get the sound from the pins designed to provide the sound for the front headphones...They are located somewhere on the left of the extra usb plugs ..on the bottom edge if it is a vertical unit ...I will try to locate the scheme to make it visible ...but if you have the tech book ..in the scheme there are marked the ones for the front audio panel ...You can get some kinda adapters to double them ..or just give up on the front audio panel ..

Where do i conect the red and black wires (SPDIF & GND) that come off the nvidia 9500gt graphics card


You only need SPDIF if you are running Digital audio. The GND is the ground for that same connection - This connection is located on your mother board, Labeled SPDIF. Not a needed connection in most cases.

Hope this helps..

Hi! Sorry to ny english :) I have problem with conecting cable graphic card and motherbord Graphic card GeForce 9600GT and MSI 915G Combo-FR Motherboard I cant found conector on motherboar for SPDIF...


I have looked at the manual for your motherboard. It does not have a SPDIF connection on the board, just on the rear I/O panel. (If you need a copy you can download one here. They have several languages available.) Here is the back I/O panel picture:

You will need to connect your graphic card using a cable as shown in the "outside" picture on the image you supplied:

Plug the cable from the card into the SPDIF connector circled in red on the picture.

No sound from hd graphics card goeforce 2400 output, only picture


Check your audio settings if its set to hdmi output.

Also if that board has a spdif out behind near the usb ports, See if its glowing or on....if not then you have a bad motherboard. Had the same problem before with another asus board

Hi, =)

Basically what you need is to connect the S/PDIF out from the soundcard\motherboard I/O ports to the 8500 graphics card S/PDIF in and HDMI should now carry both video and audio.

So you have to check the video card. On the top part you'll see a white plastic with 2 pins inside of it. This is the connector SPDIF input from the video card. So what you have to do is look up in your motherboard for a connector with 3 pins that says SPDIF OUT. Even though it looks with 3 pins ONLY 2 of them are needed. You will basically need ONLY a cable like this:

You can get it at a local pc technician shop for 2 bucks only.

Anyway what you do is connect one end of the cable to the two pins from the white connector from the video card and the other end of the cable to your motherboard on the first 2 pins of the SPIDF OUT connector. Now the way to know which ones are the first two, do it this way: The first two considering reading SPIDF OUT meaning that the first one is the one closest to the "S" letter of SPDIF OUT.

If it does not work trying connecting the cable differentely as you might be connecting in a reverse order (positive-negative). Don't worry about burning anything as it's only a sound cable, and it does not carry any power.

Once you do it, go to windows control panel and select SPDIF as your default sound playback.

And you're ready to enjoy sound and video thru HDMI now!

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu


Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Is my Motherboard compatible?


Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
