Headset not working, front ports not working

Q: Headset not working, front ports not working

Hey
Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated
Thanks

Preferred Solution: Headset not working, front ports not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or newegg.com for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

This is a brand new custom built PC for web browsing for a motel lobby.

Win7 Home Premium
AMD A4-3300 Llano
MSI A55M-P33 FM1
Rosewill FBM-02 MicroATX Mini Tower

Running latest BIOS and latest drivers downloaded directly from manufacturer's website.

I tried switching between all 3 internal headers and none of them would detect the flash drive.

If I plug the drive in the rear ports it detects right away leading me to suspect the case's ports might be defective but I don't have another USB 2.0 card lying around to confirm.

Based on this info does it seem likely that the front ports themselves are faulty?

A:Front USB ports not working, but rear USB ports work…

You might check to see if the case end of the USB cables are properly plugged into the front panel holding the headers. Some board need more than one brand of USB drivers, Renesas, NEC, etc.

Hello. My audio / headset jacks on the front panel of my PC running Windows 8.1 will not work. I had the Beats Audio Panel installed and was using the IDT High Definition Audio Codec and had rear sound through my speakers only. After checking your forum, I unistalled that driver (and Beats Audio) and installed the High Definition Audio Device driver only (no Beats Audio) and both rear jacks work. So, I can get sound and recording in the rear, but not it the front. I hope you can help me. Thank you.

Hey guys.

I'm having a rather unusual issue with my USB 3.0 ports (Asmedia) on the front side. The back ones work fine so I'm unsure if it's anything to do with the drivers or even in the BIOS? Could anyone suggest any troubleshooting methods?

Hello!

I have a Gigabyte motherboard in a Antec Lanboy case. The case has two front USB ports. The USB ports do not work with most devices. For example if I plug in a USB key or a webcam I get the balloon that says "the device may not be recognized". But if I plug in a keyboard, mouse, or RF receiver, it works. Could it be that the front ports are USB 1.1 or are underpowered? I've read that Gigabyte USB connections are a bit different, but I've checked them before and are as illustrated in the manual By the way, I'm on XP SP2 and the USB connections from the mobo are not a single block - they are individual pins.

I built my computer November 1st 2007. Ever since then I haven't been able to get the front mic or audio ports to work. My front USB ports work fine though. I just recently started wanting to use them, so I didn't worry much about it until now.

I reinstalled all my audio drivers and chipset drivers, specifically the vista 64-bit ones (thats my OS) included on the motherboard disc. My rear audio works fine. Also, I'm 100% positive that the front audio cable is plugged into the motherboard correctly.

Whenever I plug something into the mic or audio port, it goes in fine, but my computer doesn't detect it.

Computer info:

XFX, Nvidia 650i Ultra motherboard.

Integrated Realtek audio.

Apevia X-Cruiser case (just in case it might be something wrong with the case)

I really appreciate any help!

Double check the connectors and make sure they are correct.
The data lines are polarized.
+ needs to be connected to + and - to -.
Make sure the cable you are using is acually a data cable and
not just a charging cable.

You might have to open up your case, trace back the cable, and re-plug it. It could be detached, or the USB controller on the front ports could be fried somehow too.

I noticed these past few days that my front USB 3.0 ports are not working. Whenever I plug a USB 2.0 flash drive into the front ports, the activity light on the flash drive itself does not turn on.

I did clean all old Windows updates using disk cleanup which may have caused the problem.

So far, I uninstalled the USB driver and tried to reinstall the software with no success.
I have attached a picture of a screenshot after the driver installation failed.
Thank you

A:Front USB ports not working, driver problem

Just a couple of questions, how did you reinstall the drivers? Through Device Manager or running from the motherboard disc utility? And did you have any USB devices plugged in when installed it?
Usually if you run the software from the motherboard disc and choose drivers you'll get a list of drivers with check boxes next to them, and any that aren't installed will be unchecked. Those would be the ones you need. The ASMedia XHCI controller is the driver for your mid board header which controls the front USB 3.0 ports and that look as if it's installed fine, so I'd run that motherboard utility and see what it shows up.
Also could you post a screenshot of Device Manager with the USB controllers section expanded.

For what it's worth I have a very similar set up in my back up rig (A10-5800k on an ASUS F2A85-V Pro) and have never got the front USB 3.0 ports working on the BitFenix front panel I added. Not saying we won't get yours working, just that you're certainly not alone with this issue.

When I tried downloading the Texas Instruments USB Controller Driver and tried running it , I got an error about how its the wrong operating system or something of that nature. I am not sure if drivers are the issue with this problem or if its a hardware issue but either way I am trying to find out. The fact that the driver wont install is kind of wierd, can it be because its for Windows 7? I couldnt find any drivers for Windows 10 for this particular desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Hello,

I have had this computer for over a year, when I initially got it I noticed the two audio ports on the front of the tower were not working. I double checked to see if it was plugged in on the mother board in the right spot, it was. I decided to just leave it before anything else broke, but after a year I love my computer less and am willing to take the risk .

When I plug it into speakers into the front audio jacks (There are two) Realtek HD Audio does not give the message "A Jack Has Been Plugged In". The back ports work fine for the record.

Specs:

Windows XP SP3

Motherboard: MSI 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition

Realtek HD Audio Manager:
Driver Version 5.10.0.5898
Audio Codec ALC888.

If you need any other information please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Front Panel Audio Ports Not Working

Well I got it working after much forum searching!

"Had same problem but problem isn't the chip.
In Realtec Audio Manager, if you hover over the pink and green icons for the front panel you'll probably see they're both set up for speakers or headphones.
To solve you first need to unplug the microphone.
Then click on the 'folder' icon, which is just to the right of where it says 'ANALOG'.
Then make sure you enable fron't panel jack detection and enable the auto pop-up dialog.
Then plug the mic in, and when the pop-up asks tell it that you've plugged in the Mic.
Suggest you disable the front panel detection and the auto pop-up afterwards as it's a right pain.
You can get a similar end result if you use the 'Connector Retasking' facility - just right click on the pink or green socket icon.
Hope this helps someone.
Olly"

Sounds like something has happened to the headset, based on what you report.
What type of headset is this? USB? or does it have a 3.5mm stereo plug(s)?

Can you try it on a different PC to see if it works OK or not?

Basically yesterday I replugged my headset in and all of a sudden no sound started coming through but the mic still worked, people could hear me. So I decided to see if the actual headset was broken in Hardware and Sound in the control panel but the sound bars of the headset rise accordingly to my music. It's as if my headset if working but its disabled. I'm not too sure what to do at this point.

I have tried 2 different headsets using front ports of my computer. The headsets are detected by the computer and I can hear fine out of them, but no voice is detected. I have tried numerous tests and other small things, but nothing seems to work. The headsets are supposed to be working properly according to the system.

What do I do?

I have 2 headsets both from different companies, one from Andrea the other from Altec Lansing. I have them plugged into the front ports of my tower. My computer detects them both and says that they are working. However, I can hear out of them, but I cannot say anything. It does not hear me at all. I've tried various testing procedures and it doesn't detect anything.

HI all

I used to use a USB headset and the sound and mic worked fine. But alas, the headset kicked the bucket and died last week. I bought a bright shiny new expensive headset, the Carcharias by Razer.

Well, this headset has the mic and audio jack and not a usb. I plugged it in.... the audio sounds great but for the life of me, I cannot get the mic to work. I have it plugged in the back of my PC right into the sound card. Pink in pink, green in green. LOL But it wont work.

Help?
I dont really know where to go from here.

I have gone to the control panel - sounds - Audio tab, In sound recording field, the drop down box doesnt show anything other than SB XFI Audio which is my sound card.

Same thing in the Voice tab under voice recording. Just my soundcard. No option for the headset.

Hi DKong27 and welcome to TSG.

Any chance you can try the headset on a different computer ? That should determine if it's the headset or your computer that's having a problem.

I assume yours is an HP laptop, what model is it ?

After some research, it could be the driver that's corrupt
Is there any FREE program that could fix this?

I have made sure the mic is on, plugged in right, and not muted. Also Im using XP 64 bit

Update: I got the mic to work, but instead of being clear and nice like on the laptop, I have to talk loudly and there is a LOT of static and random noise.

Update 2: I plugged a MP3 Player into the microphone jack using a 2 way connector and hit play. I have to max out the MP3 Players volume to hear it and also the recorded audio is terrible also with a lot of static.

What type of cable is it? If you had to get a adapter of any sort in order for it to plug into your sound card jack on your system; there is a chance that windows might not be able to pick it up.

A:Front Usb Panel Not Working.

by "changed my cpu Cabinet" I presume you mean you got a new case for your computer. Make sure you connected the cables from your front panel correctly to the USB and Audio headers on your MB. Some cases have cables with one plug for the USB and one for the Audio but others have individual connectors so you need to consult your motherboard manual to suss out which is which. If you only used one of the USB headers on your motherboard try to move it to the 2nd one

Hello, I recently bought a new motherboard and tower. I have installed all the latest drivers from Asus and know the case uses AC'97 sound and have set the Mobo accordingly. However, when I plug in my headphones (tried multiple pair) it continues to play from main speakers, with nothing coming through the headphones.

when I plug in the speakers from the rear jack, a pop-up tells me something has been plugged in. not the case with the front jack.

also, I have checked "Playback Devices" and it shows me the headphones as "Not plugged-in".

while playing around I managed to get the H Phones to work, but the speakers didn't mute when I did. in tinkering, it went away again and wont come back.

When he plugs something into the back USB port, everything works fine. When he plugs a device (printer, ipod, etc..) into the front port nothing happens. They system does not recognize that a USB device has been plugged in. Any ideas why things would work in the back USB but not the front? Is there a setting somewhere that may have turned off the front port for some reason? Doesn't seem to be a resource conflict as this happens when there is nothing plugged into the back port.

The Audio front panel (where you plug head sets) on my PC is not working. I have a IN9 32X-MAX Wi-Fi MB and am using a Xcilo Windtunnel Extreme Case. I plugged the cable (from the case) marked Audio into the the
FP-Audio1 socket in my board, I assume this is correct? I have updated the Realtek drivers (AC'97 Audio Codecs?) but the front panel nor Realtek HD Audio Manager register the head set (Creative HS-390, free with WiC Collectors Edition) however the head set works if plugged into the backpanel...whats going wrong?
 

A:Front Panel not working

Examine your board. Trace the connections from non-working external socket. It is likely that is no cable going to the socket on the motherboard, or there is no cable from the optical drive to the correct port or socket. There are usually two to four ports for audio on the motherboard. There are also two to four ports on the audio card if you are using a PCI Audio card. On some boards, those cables must be connected by a very thin cable with special plugs on each end.

I assume you have already examined all the possibilities in the Control Panel.

Ive also ensured that my speaker settings are set on 5.1 surround sound. Could somebody please explain how to get my sound to come out of all my 5.1 surround sound. Thanks.

I downloaded a plugin for Winamp that allows it to output 5.1. The only difference this made was that now the center speaker has sound as well as the front. The rear still do not work

A:USB on front panel not working

difficult-

It'll be hard to troubleshoot if you are uncomfortable inside the case. One possible scenario: when the shop installed the new optical drive, they may have unplugged/knocked loose the cable from the motherboard to the front panel, but the only way to check is to open the case.

If you just need more USB ports, and they don't have to be necessarily in front, try: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817111490, or something like it, there are many options. If you have a walk-in like Fry's, CompUsa handy, or maybe even a Radio Shack, you could save the shipping, but maybe pay a little more. Just plug one into a known good USB port, and away you go! :knock:

I have Creative Inspire 5.1 5200 and a Creative Audigy 2 Platinum. I recently came back from the Creative site, updating all my products. Now, my front right doesn't have any sound. I decided to go further and check the inside of the speaker... it looked perfectly fine. I hooked it up somewhere else and it worked.

Now it seems to be a problem with the woofer where everything is connected.

Yes, don't ask, I've been playing with Creative Speaker settings and the EAX console for a LONG time.

And now, sometimes when I plug the speaker into the right channel on the woofer, it plays as center.

I can't properly calibrate the speakers because after choosing rear left for instance, the sound plays again there and I can't choose it again.

All help appreciated.

Hey guys, brand new kid here. Fairly computer literate but not a whiz by any means. I had to do a Windows XP System Recovery on my HP desktop PC a few weeks ago and since then my USB 2.0 ports haven't been themselves.

Before when I used my Kingston 4gb SDHC card in my front USB 2.0 ports (as they're labeled) it worked at full speed with no problems. After the System Recovery, when I plug in the card it gives me a message saying "This device could perform faster if it were plugged into a High Speed USB 2.0 Port." The problem is, my Device Manager lists a high speed port and hub on my computer, but I get the same message on all the ports on my computer. I tried updating the drivers and uninstalling and reinstalling them but to no avail.

Is there any way to fix this?

I have a friend who has just purchased a Creative HS-420 headset to use with his Toshiba Satellite Laptop (running Windows 7 Home Premium). The headset cables are plugged into the correct headphone/mic sockets at the front left side of the laptop, and the headphones work fine but the microphone does not work. When I list recording devices in Windows it shows a Conexant device. The recording level on this device flickers very briefly when I plug in the headset, but does not respond when I speak into the mic.

When I plug in a different, standalone microphone it works fine - it's just the mic on the Creative headset that doesn't work.

Does anyone know if this headset requires a separate driver for the microphone? (I can't seem to locate any drivers for it on the Creative website).

Using an SB X-FI Xtreme Audio sound card, windows 7 professional, Turtle Beach (x12) headset.

Months ago my microphone stopped working on my pc, then eventually sound also stopped working. I replaced my sound card with another (SB X-FI Xtreme also) and sound once again worked. However I cannot get my Turtle Beach headset microphone to work, the sound works fine.

What I've tried to resolve the solution:
*Checked to make sure it was in the right hole, of course.
*Downloaded recent device drivers for SB X-fFI Xtreme and install.
*Gone through looking for something that might have muted the microphone;



^ I've been trying to check playback using sound recorder.
*Both this headset and another headset that don't work on my pc are fully functional on my laptop.
*Attempted to uninstall device drivers and reinstalled, also didn't work.

A:Headset microphone not working

Where are you plugging in the mic? On the front panel or the mic jack on the SoundBlaster sound card rear I/O panel?

Also, you should set the "What You Hear" as the default recording device. That will allow you to record streaming audio from the internet and also whatever is connected either to the mic or line in will record (assuming all is well). I don't see the What You Hear in your Recording pane. RIGHT click in a blank area in that panel and then LEFT click to show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The What You Hear (what Soundblaster calls the System Mixer or Stereo Mix) should now be shown and you can enable it and make it the default recording device.

As you have a separate sound card, make sure the integrated audio on the motherboard is disabled in the BIOS so it does not conflict. You can only have one default playback device.

@cadeb?, welcome to the forum. This is a very common problem with Win 10 upgrades.  You should go into the Control Panel / Sound and check to assure that your microphone and headset are listed and set to Default.  Also, it would be good if you ran HP and Windows Updates to assure that the software and drivers are fully up to date. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:Headset Microphone not working

Oh, it seems the problem got solved.

My solution i found on the internet was to go to device manager and then under sound, video and game controllers, i uninstalled the sound drivers. (in my case, AMD High Def Audio Device and Conexant Smart Audio HD)

After both were uninstalled, I restarted my laptop. Then on boot up, the small speaker on bottom right on the desktop has a little red circle on it. I troubleshooted the problem (right click speaker, top option) and it installed something (i assume both the 2 sound drivers I had just uninstalled, since i just checked device manager after it had finished installing and both my previous sound drivers were present). And it seems to work now.

I still don't entirely understand how it worked, but that was my solution.

A:Usb headset not working in windows 7

Is the headset detected by the PC? USB headsets DO NOT use the PC's sound card. They take the digital audio data and convert it to analog audio in the headset. Since the headset converts the digtal to analog, may be a problem in the headset. Is there another PC you can try the headset to see if it works or has the same problem?

A:Headset Mic Jack not working

Some things to check... 1. Doesn't your laptop have a built in mic? If so, see if that works. That may help narrow things down as to whether it is all audio inputs not working or just your headset input 2. Check Control Panel Device Manager to make sure you don't have any yellow exclamation points indicating a driver not installed correctly. 3. Check Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Sound, Manage audio devices, to make sure the correct device is showing up, selected, and configured.

A:My headset microphone not working

The first thing I see is you do not have the correct RealTek sound driver (what Gigabyte shows for this model) installed. All you have is the generic, basic function, Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec driver.

Install the RealTek driver from the Gigabyte downloads for your motherboard as the first step.

It does not appear you have the correct AMD driver installed for your video card either. Go to www.amd.com and download and install the correct driver.

Considering the sound and video do not have the correct drivers, you need to take a look at all the drivers. Gigabyte provides an install disc with all the drivers and apparently that was not used. However, DO NOT install the Gigabyte EasyTune program, if its on the disc as that is known to cause problems. (EasyTune6 was supplied with my Gigabyte motherboard)

One other comment. I seriously doubt that you have 1TB of RAM (Memory). That is probably the size of your hard drive.

Hi and welcome to TSF.

First of all, never spend money on programs that install drivers for you. It can be done free and easy.

Go to your Device manager: start> rightclick on this computer> select manage> Device manager. Here you can see all your installed and missing drivers. Go and see if there are some yellow question marks. like this. If I'm correct the problem here is the sound drivers that are missing.

"and they both are a usb headsets with the green and pink wires,"

They are USB and the audio plugs?

Hey everyone,

Last week i bought a new Rig 500 gaming headset from EB Games. I went home and read the quick start guide which basically said "If you are using this for a PC, plug it in and your all good to go." So that's what i did, i plugged the jack into the headphones port on the front of my PC (note: there is only one jack). I found that the sound was amazing but when i tried to test the mic on skype it did not work (note: the mic is part of the headset). So, i unplugged the jack and put it into the mic port on the front of my PC. Now the mic did work but the headset sound did not.

So in conclusion only the mic or the headset sound will work at one time instead of both at the one time.

Please help and thanks for reading,

A:Rig 500 headset and mic not working properly?

I did a quick search on your headset and from what I can tell there should be a Y split cable included in the box. This cable would split the mic and speakers into two plugs so you could put one in the mic & front speaker ports. From a video unboxing I saw, it seems the cable is located at the button in some cardboard. Where the warranty card and other papers are located.

I plugged in both. The microphone is not detected, and does not display as an option for a voice device in the sound and audio device control panel. Also, sound plays through both the headset and the speakers.

The setup I want is for normal sounds to send through the speakers, and for voice to be send via the headset.

A:Headset Microphone not working

Looking at this headset, on a YouTube video, the mic portion plugs into the headset. Has this ever worked? If not, I would contact Creative as there may be a problem. Or, if you have access to another PC (a friend's) you could try it on that to see if it works.

As you have both on-board sound and a separate sound card, if you want to use the SoundBlaster you should disable the on-board in the BIOS. Having two can cause conflicts and things to not work. In addition Windows only allows one default audio playback device. Also, where are you plugging in? If its the front panel of the PC case, what audio do you have connected to the front panel? From the motherboard or from the SoundBlaster? Again, if you are using the SoundBlaster but have the motherboard audio connected to the front panel it won't work.

I have a Fatal1ty motherboard in one of my PC's, it is an ASRock Z77 Professional Fatal1ty.

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset | Creative Labs Online Store

And they don't work.
When I go into Playback/Recording devices they are not being listed as options, only my regular speakers and mic are being listed. When I plug the Headset in no sound comes through my laptop speakers but it does not come out my headset speakers either.

Some things to know, my computer is Windows 7 64bit And I know the Headphones are not broken. Also, as a reminder, this particular headset plugs into the two Headphone and Mic jacks, not a USB. I have made sure they are plugged into the correct slot. I am on a laptop so I only have the two available jacks. One for Microphone and one for headset.

Have you looked in the Creative support pages for anything unique about these headphones and if anything specific you need to do to get them to work - I agree that these should work "out the box" but it seems strange they are not even recognized when you plug them in - do they appear in Device Manager ?

Welcome to the Forums.

This support trick works quite often. Boot into safe mode. Delete the driver from Device Manager(in this case the headset.) Reboot normally. Windows should reinstall the driver. This technique seems to work more than half the time. It's well worth trying.

Hi lloydikins, welcome to the forums.

Can you do me a favour and right click the empty space where playback devices are shown, now click on "show disabled devices", this should bring up something called stereo mix, right click that and enable, now... With the headset on, can you hear anything from the microphone when you talk?

Also, the operating system doesn't show a headset as you're using analog jacks, it's just an audio device, it cannot detect a headset through analog jacks...

Just bought a brand new Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator (Headset). Plugged it all in as normal, sound works perfectly, everything seemed fine, except my microphone isn't working for some reason. Just wondering why that is I have tried different ports, sockets, computer meets the system reqs. Why isn't it working? Is there something specific I need to install? My sound from the headphones is fine, but why isnt the mic working?

The computer is a HP, model a6157c, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 4400 @ 2.00 GHz 2.00GHz 2038 MB, 32-bit OS. The headset is brand new from Best Buy, came in a sealed box. Didn't install any drivers or in any way install it, just plugged it in the plugs and the sound worked immediately, but the Mic still doesn't and hasn't worked.

I recently got the SADES SA-708 and to my surprise the microphone was not working. I have tested it on another laptop so I know it's not a problem with my headset. I'm not even sure if my computer is recognizing the headset. Any help would be appreciated.

Normally, the Stereo Mix (may be called System Mixer) is set as the default Recording Device. Then whatever is plugged in can be heard, without having to specifically select a device.

Did you download the driver from the Dell downloads? If not, that is the first thing to do.

Product Support | Dell US

To set the Stereo Mix, in the Recording panel, RIGHT click in an empty space and then click to select show Disabled and Disconnected Devices. Stereo Mix should now show up and you can enable it and make it the Default Recording device. System Mixer is required if you ever want to record audio from the Internet.

Finally, has this ever worked? or is this the first time you've tried the mic input.

Product name: DX-28 Dynex Stereo Headset with Noise-Canceling Microphone Long story short, it is not picking up anything I say into the mic. I've already went into all the audio options I know on my computer to ensure nothing was muted/tampered with, and nothing came up. I can still HEAR sound, but when it comes to recording, nothing.

My Logitech headset with headphones and mic is ureently not working for no reason at all, its a smiple plug in one (not usb) you plug the jacks in to the mic and sound slots, which has been done correctly.

No drivers or anything just plug in and go, but recently it has stopped working its only a cheap pair so its not major just wondered why?

Thanks for any help,

A:Logitech Headset No Working!

Are you sure it's the headset? Have you tried real speakers to confirm it's not the soundcard? If speakers still work, there's probably a broken wire. (Logitech quality, you know!)
