New board, no sound from front or rear jacks

Q: New board, no sound from front or rear jacks

I got a M5A99x Evo Re2.0, brand new board and the audio from the rear doesnt work at all when I plug the pink and green plugs. I have an HDMI connecting from my TV to my Gcard, I get audio through the TV but cant seem to get those jacks working. Ive used two different headsets to see if it might have been the headset itself. im really stumped.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: New board, no sound from front or rear jacks

Have you gone into the sound menu in your control panel and set your default audio device to your headset?

If, under the "playback" tab, the HDMI output is ticked, then this is the problem.

Just click on the correct device(It should either list your headphones or say "high definition audio", or something similar) and then click "set default".

This should solve the problem.

I can not get sound from my front jacks but I get sound through the internal speaker. If the rear jacks are enabled then they will work.

Device manager shows: 2 high definition audio devices (not realtek). One for the rear jacks and the other for ATPI Inernal ATPI jack. No playback device listed for the front jacks.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the devices but the front jacks wont install

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

A:HP400 sound from internal speaker and rear jacks but not front jacks

High Definition Audio Drivers are only the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound drivers. They are not the full feature drivers that the hardware drivers provide. Check HP for a correct sound driver, if available.

ATPI (ATAPI) suggests this is an old Windows XP PC that was upgraded. There may not be any better drivers than the generic ones you have now.

Also check the front panel audio connection to the motherboard (reseat the connector).

Hey guys I installed Audio and Jacks No Front via Rear Output the Hyper this weekend but after installation the audio stopped working Thinking that this was a hardware issue No Audio Output via Front and Rear Jacks I went back and replugged some of the cables back into the mobo to make sure they were securely in there No luck My setup other specs in profile - Phenom x - Radeon - ASRock Extreme Sound appears to work green bars move Windows doesn't detect any problems but there's no output Here's what the Sound control panel looks like Note that I do indeed have speakers headphones plugged in I also went into the Realtek HD Audio Manager to see what's going on and it lists only Digital Output None of the analog jacks appear to be active in the Manager window unless I disable front panel jack audio detection Here's what it looks like with front panel detection enabled And with front detection disabled I've done a couple of things so far - Tried headphones and speakers in front and rear audio jacks - Even tried microphone in front mic-in jack - didn't work A USB connected to front panel mic did work however - Restored BIOS to factory defaults - Disabled re-enabled onboard audio in BIOS - Installed uninstalled reinstalled audio and video drivers I've also messed around with the Realtek HD Audio Manager itself - I disabled front panel jack audio detection This added two additional in ouputs Speakers and FrontMic Neither work - Changed default device to speakers Nada - Tried enabling quot Make front and rear output devices playback two different audio streams simultaneously quot I even looked at the registry after checking out the Changing Jacks stickied thread in this forum but not all the jacks are listed So anyway I have no clue what the problem is other than maybe it's outputting the sound digitally via SDPIF for some reason and I can't figure out how to get Windows Realtek to detect the analog output jacks instead Help anyone

A:No Audio Output via Front and Rear Jacks

flaergr, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Might help if you set the Speakers as the default device instead of the digital one. Unless you're specifically using the optical/digital connections on the back, both the regular and front panel jacks are analogue.

Hi all,

I'm currently having trouble using the front/rear mic jacks on my computer. Working microphones plugged into either of these jacks will be recognized by the computer (through Realtek Sound Manager Connector Sensing), but no sound will be received through the mic (testing through Sound Recorder for example).

I've checked through all the sound options, and there's no indication that the mic volume is too low or muted. Is there any way to diagnose or solve this problem? I searched through the forums and couldn't find the answer, so any help is appreciated.

Here are my system specs:
AMD64 3700+, 2.21GHz
Windows XP Pro
ATI Radeon X800

This just started yesterday. I installed Windows 10 two months ago, so I can't blame that. I did all the recommended in computer repair steps with drivers and the speaker icon, but the computer says that the speaker or headphones are not plugged in. They were tested and do work. There are two jacks in the front, and the speakers work through one of them. I thought maybe the sound card was fried, but with the front jack working, what gives?

A:Inspiron 545 rear audio jacks not working, but front ones do.

What model sound card--integrated or separate? Check the ports in the back again with a flashlight. Make sure you are using the light green port in the middle for the speakers. The blue and the green look very much alike. 
Brave of you to install win 10 on such an old model.

A:How do I use 2 audio jacks simultaneously(front and rear)for 2 systems

BruteDubstep welcome to the Seven Forums.

Even if you can do that it won't double the bass. You want more bass in your sound you're either need to play around with the bass/EQ settings, or get a set of speakers/headphones that have more bass.

Right, i've been having this problem since I THINK starting to use a HDMI wire. But now, i cannot get any audio from the audio jacks, they are detected, but no sound is produced and I just cannot figure it out.
I've disabled the HDMI, installed, un-installed, re-installed audio drivers and pretty much any method and i can find thus far and nothing at all has worked. I'm a huge lover of music, and the is driving me insane!
Note: The speakers are fine, they work with my iPhone.

I am fairly new with W7 so please excuse my inexperience with this.

I have headphones connected to front headphone jack (Dell Inspiron 560 W7 Home 64). I want to have cable connected to rear jack (for speakers in other room). I can't get audio from the rear if anything is connected to the front jack. I do get about one second with the rear pink jack and the yellow jack - but not the green jack - but after one second it stops.

The sound card is RealTek High Definition Audio, driver from 10/09 Vers

Note that when making a similar connection to my XP machine the RealTek card/jacks do play in both front and rear at the same time.

I have attached screenshots of the Control Panel ->RealTek image (annotated with mouseover text) and the Volume->Properties image.

A:Can't get Rear Audio jacks to work While cable connected to front jack

I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum. Dell uses a custom implementation of the RealTek audio, only the Dell RealTek audio drivers will work or work properly. Some models of the RealTek audio chip have the capability to do what you want and some do not, on others it's up to the PC/Motherboard vendor whether to implement certain functions or not. It may be possible but I don't recall seeing any posts on the Dell forum about this particular item.

Usually, the default setup is to mute the rear connected speakers when a headphone (or whatever) is plugged into the front headphone jack.

Here is the Dell on-line manuals for the 560/570 models

A:No sound from rear audio jacks after installing W7

Sounds like something is amiss with the device itself or possibly the jacks themselves(possible hardware issue). But; i would try completely uninstalling all the devices that have the issues; reboot; and let windows try and reinstall them. If you have disks for any of the devices you might have to use the disc to load the drivers and then update them online if needed. If that does not work then it sounds like those jacks may have just bit the dust suddenly in which case you could try sending the board in to the manufacturer to have them fix it; or just get a new board which i know is not what you want to hear but if it comes down to that you may have to.

New rig with GA-h55m-usb3 mobo with Win 7/32 pro SP1 - back panel sound fine. but trying original front panel jacks (AC97), and Silverstone fp94s jacks (HD or AC97) nothing. HD recognition should be automatic! Audio is integrated on board Realtek, driver r2.49-6121.

I have upgraded the bios and the drivers. I have tried changing the switch to turn off automatic recognition for AC97. I can see that the system playing, I have ensured the voilume is up. Tried different speakers.

Having read other forums, come to the conclusion that this is a win 7 issue, and/or a mobo issue (however I gather this happens on other mobos).

Any suggestions?

A:No sound from front panel jacks

Do you have the correct cable connection between the motherboard and the case front panel jacks? When I assembled my home built PC, I had a problem with the front panel assembly in the case and had to get a replacement front panel assembly (and cables) from the case manufacturer to fix it.

As this is a new system, it could be anything - from the connection on the motherboard to the cable and /or front panel, to a hardware problem with the integrated audio.

Go back and verify that you have the HD Audio connection connected to the motherboard pins and that it is connected correctly. You may have to take an ohmmeter and try to trace out the connections to the front panel headphone and mic jacks to ensure continuity in the cabling. But the wiring is the first thing to check.

Now, if I plug the subwoofer into the Line Out, that works too, it's just these other jacks that don't work. I've tried to get them to enable in the software that came with my motherboard, but there is no option for that, I guess it's just supposed to... work, and that's exactly what it's not doingYou are probably in two channel audio mode.In control panel>sound effects manager>speaker configuration tab, you should see the option to enable more channels. As you do it, you will notice the port functions for the sound card change. For 3 output ports, you need to set it to at least 6 channel.I don't have my vista system in front of me now (xp) but the directions should be close.

Hi everyone,

I recently reinstalled Windows 7 pro on my PC. Sound was working fine before. Now Windows only shows a front jack in the sound playback device settings. There is no front jack, however, only a rear jack and it is not working. If I play music the levels monitor shows sound playing, but nothing comes out the rear 3.5mm headphones jack. Drivers all claim to be correct and up to date. I tried disabling the "Audio legacy front panel" in BIOS, and left audio set to enabled, to no avail. I attach a screenshot. Any suggestions?

Many thanks for any ideas!

Hello. As you can see in the title, I have 2 jacks in the front (1 audio 1 microphone) and 2 jacks in the back (also 1 audio 1 microphone). I would like to plug my headphones into the front jacks, and my speakers into the back jacks.

However, Vista doesn't seem to recognize my front jacks. When I plug in my headphones, there are no new devices detected or anything, and the audio keeps flowing through my speakers. When I unplug the speakers, the Realtek HD Audio playback device displays "Not connected".

So the only choice I have at the moment is going over to the back of my computer and switching cables, which is quite annoying.

When connecting the front panel (mic, headset) of a case to the mobo, is it possible to plug it in backwards and still have it work. I ask only because in my VIA HD screen it lists the back panel and front panel. In it the green jack is highlighted where my speakers are connected to. In the front panel I have my head phones w/mic plug in and in the VIA HD panel it's not showing up. So when I use my headphones it does not mute my speakers.....sound comes from both speakers and headset. If I plug headset in to jack on speakers it mutes speakers and sound comes only through headset but I can't use my mic. So I have to use front panel w/headset and turn off there a way to work around this or a fix.

A:front panel jacks

is it possible to plug it in backwards

Probably not, but seeing as the case is from Ultra who knows. Anyway check you bios settings under "Onboard Devices Configuration" and make sure the "Front panel Select" setting is set to AC'97. Reason being is that your case doesn't have/support HD Audio through the front panel, only an AC'97 connection. Couldn't find anything on Ultra's site support/manual-wise (they are willing to sell it to you though, at nearly twice the price as from Tiger Direct; go figure, one owns the other), but I did find this review on it,

Ultra Products E-Torque Midtower Case | Maximum PC

that at least says which it has. Probably find once you make that one change in the bios (HD Audio is the default), it should work as expected.

A:Front Audio Jacks

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

Assuming that you have a standard case, you probably have not properly connected the front case jacks to the audio block on the MB. There are usually several jumpers on the audio block that are removed when you have front speakers/mike to allow the front jacks to disable the rear jacks. These must be removed and replaced with the front panel wiring.

A:Front panel audio jacks not working

Assuming your Live has the connector shown here,

Connecting the SoundBlaster Audigy2 ZS to the Front Panel

the easiest would be if you still have the Dell case to pull the entire wire harness (from the front plugs to the connector) from the Dell case and swap it with the one in the HP case (if possible that is). Or you can follow that guide and make your own cable as the pinouts for that connector are the same on all Creative cards that have it. One other option is to buy one ready made (pretty sure I have seen them cheaper on ebay),

I have a eagletech Dragon Case and i would like to enable the front Mic and speaker ports on the top of the system (near the reset button)

Sorry This is out of warranty and I when i plug them in they (the speaker and microphone) don't seem to work from this port. They do work from the main port on the back of the system but that is to much hassle to reconnect all the time.

I have tried searching this forum but don't appear to find the answer, also the

website does not have this model listed ( i will assume it's an older obsolete model)

Thank you for your help in advance.

Kind Regards

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.

My problem is that I can't seem to make my speakers (plugged into back panel) and my headphones (plugged into front panel) play normally at the same time.

I'm using the latest Realtek HD Audio manager on Win 7.

I managed to do this thing on Vista before, but no I somehow can't. The reason I want this is to simply be able to mute the device I don't use and switch between speakers and headphones without any plugging.

I hope somebody can help.

A:Unable to play back and front jacks at the same time.

I also would like an answer to this.

I have dual monitors each with an audio input for their speakers.
The obvious solution is to get a Y cable and hook them both to the rear output but if you don't have one, then we should be allowed to use the front output at the same time as the rear.

How do you enable this, I've fiddled inside Realteks manager but nothing helps.

Hi Megz,

Welcome to the Forum,

You need to check that the front speakers are connected to the motherboard. There are up two connectors one is for HD (mine is yellow) and the other for AC97. You now need to Enter the Bios and check that Front Panel Audio is selected to the same HD or AC97
I hope this helps

I?m having a problem with the front panel audio of my new Antec One case. While the headphone jack plays sound fine the problem is that it doesn?t detect when headphones are plugged in and does not mute the rear speakers. Jack Sensing is not working at all and Realtek HD Audio Manger marks both the headphone and mic jack as permanently plugged in.

I?ve tried re-installing the audio drivers many times and can verify that an HD Audio header is plugged into the mobo and not an AC?97.

Anyone else have any ideas what the problem could be? This is a very minor but rather annoying problem. Thanks.

A:Front panel audio jacks not muting speakers

On some systems, The RealTek HD Audio Manager will give you the option of muting the speakers when you plug in a headset or give you the option not to mute the speakers.

Its found in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound. I'm not sure how to access this in Win 8 without a Start button. I have an add on program (Start8) that adds the Start Button and Windows 7 look so I can access it on my Win 8 system.

A:Front Audio Jacks Don't Work; Realtek Issues

The audio jacks don't work, obviously because the sound driver is not installing.
Does the Windows installed "High Definition Audio driver" install? (instead of the regular hardware Realtek) If that is not installing there would seem to be a hardware problem or that the sound is disabled in the BIOS.

Another remote possibility is that you are using the HDMI port, which in that case Windows automatically switches to the HDMI for audio. The regular sound should still install, but this is one remote possibility.

The last possibility is a hardware problem on the motherboard.

Have you checked for the windows automatic updates. Go into the settings for your speakers and try to reset them.

Have you tried this speaker system on a different computer?

Do all the speakers connect to the base system like The Creative systems.

The Humming sounds like feedback or electrical interference, have the speakers been moved or an ac source or cable added.

This setup was working fine in Windows8.1 and below. But now after upgrading, if I plug in rear audio jac, I loose the sound in the front and vice versa. Kindly help.
In addition, during the fresh install of Windows 10, I did not install any drivers for monitor, default inbuilt sound card of motherboard,inbuilt lan card,etc. Do I need to install these as they seem to be functioning except well except for the audio part which I mentioned above.

Hi, ezisk, and welcome to the forums.

First off, I moved your post as you posted in the general informational post about the RealTek drivers, which is not really a help thread.

On that motherboard, have you verified if you have all the connection correct for using the HD audio with the front / rear panel? I know the rear is automatic, but with the front panel, IIRC there is a specialized place for connecting the mic and speaker out jacks for HD versus non HD....

Hello @EasyEnemy, and thank you for your post.I understand that you are having some issues with the audio outputs on your computer. I am happy to help with this. On checking the support page there are not any specific drivers for Windows 10 for your computer. With that in mind there are a few things you can try. Try out the HP Support Assistant to see if it can find any other drivers that could be compatible.HP PCs - Using HP Support Assistant (Windows 10, 8, 7)HP PCs - Troubleshooting HP Support Assistant (Windows 10, 8) If not, or if any drivers it finds do not help, you can try in installing the Windows 8.1 drivers again from the support page. HP ENVY Phoenix 810-192d Desktop PC Another option would be to try installing the older drivers using compatibility mode in Windows 10. This Microsoft forum page shows several things you can try: How to: Install and Update drivers in Windows 10. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Every time I wanna use speakers instead headphones,I have to use the same headphones output (green one - back panel), and therefor to disconnect and connect cables.. not very comfortable

I've tried to use the black output, and it worked, but only as a 'rear speakers', both left and right channels worked!

Is it possible to make the rear black output to work as FRONT speakers ?? this way ill be able to have both speakers and headphones available at the same time

In other simple words:Can I use rear speakers as FRONTS ?(when connector to the black rear output)

BTW;I don't wanna use the front panel, only the back panel

Thank you!

A:REALTEK|using front speakers through rear output jack - possible?

Easiest way would be to use an external speaker switch, since you do not want to use the conventional method with the front panel headphone jack.

With an external switch you could select either the speakers or headphone.

I don't know what sound you have but the only option is RealTek audio is to mute or not mute the speakers when a headset is plugged into the front panel headphone jack. There's no way, that I know of, to route primary audio to some other jack.

This doesn't work. Very irritating.
(I don't know if this RealTek sticky at the top of this forum is a solve for this, I'm not hot on registry changes and I'm not sure if this is a fix for this issue.)

Firstly I have to turn off the front-panel detection in order for the front panel to be detected..?

Secondly, I can't get the speakers to mute when the front phones are plugged in. I can do a manual switch from one to the other, but the front panel won't detect when things are plugged in.

Is it fixable?


A:Realtek Mute Rear output when front input is plugged in

Sorry, but no. You will have a Realtek HD codec on board, and, like many others (myself included), are having to use an AC'97 front panel. These will work, but there are limitations like you have mentioned. The only way that you can have the speakers that are connected to the rear panel (the motherboard connectors) mute automatically when plugging headphones into the front panel is to have a HD compliant unit.

See AC'97 and HD audio front panel layouts for an explanation.

Check to make sure that the front panel audio cable is actually plugged into the audio header on the motherboard. If the motherboard has HD audio and the front panel has a plug marked HD-Audio, then plug that into the motherboard. Make sure that it is correctly lined up, otherwise the front panel won't work correctly.

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.

I have created a couple of message boards on an existing site with FP (I know, not the fanciest thing in the world, but my only option at this point!), and I have the header and footer working on all the pages, except the actual post pages......can't figure out where they are and how to get them to use the header/footer being used on all the other pages of the board. Any guesses?? Here's a link to one of the boards, if you care to post a message, you'll see what I mean. (Please keep it NICE's a CHURCH message board! )

Any and all input appreciated! Thanks!

A:Front Page based web, message board question

i dont think its actually possible to include headers or footers on a pages using only html (i could be wrong, but html is really just a basic language, im suprised you managed to create a message board using just frontpage!). i know it could be done if you had support for other programming languages though, such as php.

The board is Intel D845EPT2 with Intel 845 SE chipset. I found an English manual at the Intel site; but, it has nothing in it about the front panel LEDs, power switch, reset, etc. in all of its 80 (+/-) pages. I guess this board was originally intended to be used in a case that had a front-panel wiring block.

I did a Google search and came up with a plethora of irrelevant information.

I guess there might be a standard arrangement that Intel uses; but, I can't find anything indicating that either.

Thanks in advance.

I have just finished installing a refurbished M266A motherboard when I ran in to a small issue while trying to connect the front panel.

I need to connect the

I have the manual but I don’t see any information in how to, or in what order to connect all of the plugs.

Can anyone tell me where to find the information on proper way to connect the front panel?

There should be a chart or diagram somewhere towards the front of the motherboard manual that has a layout of the pins.

I recently re-installed Windows Vista on my Acer, and the entire set of jacks and USB ports on the front of the case don't work. All the USB ports etc on the back of the machine respond fine, but the headphone/mic. jack and USB ports on the front don't work at all.

I've tried re-installing the drivers from the Acer website and it still doesn't work. Help please

I have recently restored an HP DV7 3063cl laptop that died from an overheated motherboard (MB). I replaced the MB with a new board from HP when the price was reduced to about $100, upgraded the CPU with an advertised as new AMD 640M, and applied Arctic Silver on both the CPU and Graphics chips. I put in 4 G of fresh memory, got the computer to operate, and installed Windows 10. There is no sound through either of the headphone jacks. When I insert the plug into the jack, the sound from the speakers usually stops. I have done the following several times without success: uninstalled and re-installed the sound device in Device Managerrun the windows troubleshooterverified that I have the latest driverinserted different earphone into the jacksmade the headphones the default sound device Any more suggestions, other than replacing the headphone jack assembly?

A:no sound through either of the headphone jacks

soo i have a 5.1 system for my computer

it has 3 jacks

i know green is for the headphones

but what is black and orange for?

a little program i have, has both of them set for "front speaker out"

so i guess my question is, is this correct? or should one of them be set for "rear speaker out" or something along those lines?

A:Solved: sound jacks?

Orange should be: Sub+Center (or just center), black should be Rear out. Green is actually not for headphones, but front channel (which includes also headphones, as well as the front pair of speakers in a 5.1 setup and any stereo speakers)

I am planning on buying the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card, but was wondering if there was any difference between the front panel audio and the rear panel audio. Is there any difference at all? If so, which has better sound quality?

Link to sound card:

Thanks in advance.

A:Front Panel vs. Rear Panel Audio

The sound is comparable from fron and back as they
are processed by the same hardware.
With my X-FI extreme audio card,the front panel header
is only compatible with intel based HD front panel jack assemblies.
You may want to check that you have that before expecting to be
able to just connect the front panel connections.
It won't work with AC97 jacks.
It needs to have the autosensing built in for the jacks.

I see where several different people have made distinctions about which USB connections to utilize. Would someone please explain why the rear panel connections are more desirable and maybe more significantly what (if anything) should the front panel connectors be used for?

Are these connections not all from the same data buss.

Have you loaded the motherboard makers sound chip drivers, or is it just limping along on the default Windows drivers? Might make a difference.

Recently purchased a new Gateway PC, Windows 7, 64 bit. Originally, the sound was very limited, and now has become unevident. Intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI, and Realtek High Definition Audio are the two items listed under Sound, Video, & Game Controllers in Device Manager, and BOTH give the Windows message that the device is working correctly, and that the driver is up to date.
The speakers that I am using work perfectly with my other PC, and I even went out and bought additional speakers, with the same result.

A:Solved: Sound Jacks-Low 2 No Sound!

The issue is SOLVED! Also, the fix was totally incredible (though a novice could have done it)!!! I found out through a "Geek Squad" associate, since the computer was purchased at Best Buy, that newer computers do not produce the necessary power for speakers that are not "self-powered" (that have to be plugged into an electrical outlet). I now have the correct speakers, and am "BLASTING"!!!!!!!

I have a Dell Dimension E51O and there are five 1/8th in. jack slots in the back of the computer. They are different color - one is black, one is blue, one is yellow, one is red, and the last one one is green. I know that the blue one is an input for playing sound from an amp or something, and I know that the green one is for speakers or headphones. The red one is for a microphone, but what are the black and yellow ones for, surround sound (kidding, I have no idea)?

A:Solved: Just a question about computer sound jacks

Green: Stereo/Front sound. Black: Rear speaker of 5.1/7.1 sets. Yellow/Orange: Center/subwoofer of mentioned kits. And one that you're missing, gray: only used in 7.1 setting for side speakers (a pair between front and rear)

Alright, pretty sure this is the right forum to post this one in..

I have a computer that has jacks in the front of it next to its usb jacks for headphones and a microphone.
I have two sound cards, and it seems that it only wants to let me use the primary crappy one with those jacks, but I want to use the front ones for my better soundcard for a bit more mobility for my cords.

So, the question here is, how can I make the front jacks on my computer be assigned to my better sound card?
I went through the sound/audio option, and everything including primary decice is set to my better card, but for some reason it still feels the need to use my crappy card as a default here.

A:Assigning Sound Cards To Computer Jacks?

Am I correct to say that the primary sound card is a built-on sound card and the second one is an Add-on card?

See the thing is those front jacks are connected to your motherboard thus connected to the on-board sound card.

What is the make and model of your mother board and second sound card so we can better help you?

I just got a Hurcules Fortissimo 7.1 sound card as suggested by someone on this forum. Now when i play games that support EAX, i hear no rear sound. Ive played Halo, BF1942 DC Mod, and Americas Army. Evertime I throw a gernade and turn around to try to hear it blow up behind me its complete silence. Firefights in BF1942 cannot be heard behind me either. In Halo the plasma rifle sound cuts out(assuming its trying to channel rear sound). Of course my sound card settings are enabled for EAX and im using the optical input to my external receiver. My reciever is an AIWA 5.1 with an optical and coaxial spdif inputs. One rumor i heard is that EAX cannot pass through this digital output on the card. My reciever does not have any special inputs to accomodate front/rear/center/ect. Is it true that my EAX usless?

A:no rear sound FX using EAX

Some sound cards require you to use the analog outputs for EAX surround sound. The digital output is sometimes used for DVD playback so that the receiver can decode Dolby Digital signals. Consult your soundcard manual to see if this is the case. I have an audigy 2 card connected to a 6.1 receiver, the receiver does have 5.1 analog input however.

A:No Sound in 2 Rear speakers

This is the Dell users/setup manual for the speakers. Documentation

There has been a change in color coding for 5.1 speakers, compare what Dell shows to what you have on your new PC.

Also, check the Speaker Configuration in the Sound Panel, in the Control Panel, and verify you have 5.1 speakers selected.

Hey there. For some reason I can't get any sound to play from my computer to my rear speakers. It works find when I run a test from the speakers, but not if I run a test from the computer. I have an X-Fi Elite (I Think, either way it's X-Fi) hooked up via optical cable to the front bay, and I have Logitec Z-5500 speakers. When I run the test from the X-Fi control panel/wizard/diagnostics, when it says "Rear right, rear left", it comes out in the front right/left speakers. Also the sub-woofer test doesn't work either; it comes out through the center speaker. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers and what not a couple times but to no avail. Everything is wired correctly; the test on the speaker system itself works fine. Any ideas why this is happening?
