You can usually avoid the jumper removal if you install the SOUNDMAN application for your Ac'97. It helps you define the jacks to use in case "auto-sensing" ain't working.

I just want to say to those on these boards, thankyou. I was stooged over by some dodgy eBay equipment, which not only didn't work but made me have to remove the jumpers for my audio. I was trawling the internet for about an hour before I came across this page and, thanks to the images posted, fixed the problem in all of thirty seconds. Thanks guys, I just want you all to know that even though you may only answer one person's question, many others out there will benefit from the advice.

I think the mic input is also used as an output for one of the sound channels when in surround mode, see if it works correctly, but i think when set as surround the normal output from the green may only work when in stereo mode, but the best bet is to uninstall the sound driver again, as the sound may be being driven by a windows generic driver and not te asus driver, so when you restart the pc after uninstalling the driver, make sure it's the asus driver that is being loaded If you wish you can run a sound diagnostic, Click start,run then type 'dxdiag' and press enter and a diagnostic programme will run. Click the sond tab to check the drivers.

Hello, Just checking one thing that could be preventing your audio from working.____If you take a look in the red circle in this picture, make sure the jumpers are on as indicated OR make sure the case audio cable is connected in there.

Seems the problem in your Audio Driver. Here's some steps that you could try :
1. Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device in Device Manager.
2. based on my research the audio card is C-Media 8738 (not 9738) download the latest driver from here :

I'd format and reinstall windows, chances are that the custom drivers you downloaded first are conflicting with the official driver, you could be there for weeks trying different drivers without any success, your only other option is to buy a cheap soundcard and work around it that way.
