Question about Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro Motherboard
have got a gigabyte ga 7n 400 mother board thats supports 5.1 surround sound by moving the jumpers on the mother board and using the mic input as an output. however no matter what i do i cannot get all he speakers to work, would any have an idea of the jumper configuration, and is there more than one set of jumpers to move.
Hi nrls14, it can get pretty confusing with Gigabyte.
Go to page 9 in your manual or Pg 13 if using Adobe Reader. Motherboard layout. If you download the manual which is in pdf format you'll be able to enlarge the manual which will help you to see everything much better.
Download manual from here: http://china.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_7n400pro2_e.pdf
This is the English manual. (Downloading from china is a faster site).
Find SUR_CEN located between PCI slots 2 & 3 on the motherboard. Than go to pg 32 in manual or pg 36 in pdf. Set the pins SUR_CEN. Set a jumper over pins 1&2 & 5&6.
Front Audio Connector, leave a jumper across pin 5&6 & 9&10 (Default). On page 22 in manual, pg 26 pdf. Follow Method1:
Instructions. (Test your speaker system). You may need some tweaking & this can be done with the software included on the Gigabyte CD by installing the sound effects manager. Go to page 78 in your manual or pg 82 in pdf. Page 80 in manual, pg 84 in pdf. For six channel 5.1 sound. If you decide to use the Advanced 6 Channel Analog Audio Output Mode (using Audio Combo Kit, Optional Device). Follow the instructions on page 81 in manual or pg 85 in pdf. (Do not let the picture on pg 81 spook you). Pg 81 shows a set of pins not located in-between the two PCI slots. You make this connection by removing the two jumpers on SUR_CEN & plug in the SURROUND-KIT on to SUR_CEN pins. Lastly, both motherboard manuals are the same for the GA-7N400 & the GA-7N400 Pro.
Good luck nrls14!
