    Front panel Audio detection is all mixed up and I don't know why?


    Hi guys,

    Issue i'm having with using my headset in my front panels and I can't figure out what's up.

    If I plug the green headphone jack into the headphone port the pop up comes up and tells me this is the pink mic port. Gives me the option to select from headphone, mic, front speaker etc..

    If i plug the pink mic jack into the microphone port it thinks this is the green headphone port and no option to select Mic.

    Why are these reversed? The HD audio connector is connected correctly to my motherboard (only goes on one way anyway)

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Will

    :)

  2. Front Panel Intel(R) High Definition Audio not detected by Windows 10

    Upon upgrading to Windows 10, the Front Panel 3.5mm Audio Jack is no longer detected or functions on the OS.

    Case: http://www.antec.com/pdf/manuals/P280_manual_EN.pdf

    It is not listed in the Sound>Playback devices

    • Show Disabled & Disconnected Devices are both checked on, so it isn't disabled.
    • The Speakers Properties 'Jack Information' says 'Rear Panel 3.5mm Jack' and functions properly, so audio isn't muted.
    • Front Panel Microphone is still listed on the Sound>Recording devices and functions properly, so it is detecting the panel.
    • The Microphone Properties 'Jack Information' says 'Front Panel 3.5mm Jack' but displays both audio input from
      rear and front.
    When booting up on another OS, on the same computer that is not Windows 10, the front panel audio jack is detected and functions normally.

  3. Setting up two separate audio devices in 'playback devices', passed tone test but no sound.

    Hi Silk 86,

    It seems that there's a conflict on the changes made. May I know where is the monitor connected? Is it on the front panel? If not, are both the speakers and monitor connected to the analog rear panel? If one of the audio outputs is connected to the front
    panel, try enabling the front panel jack detection and see if both the monitor and speakers work simultaneously.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.

    Most likely the cable from the front audio ports was turned around when plugged onto the motherboard [I've caught myself doing that when in a hurry]. It should have been indexed but who knows without actually comparing the plug location with the motherboard manual but since yours has that indexing you might have to take the front of the case off and check the mounting of the cable on it.

    One other point, could be the wires were assembled wrong in the plug/plastic housing itself, maybe either end of the cable. If the mic and headphone jacks otherwise work one could use something like fingernail polish to carefully recolor the sockets.

  5. Have you installed the necessary Asus software ?

    So you think there may be an issue with the case build itself? i.e the i/o panel is incorrectly connected?
    The actual HD audio connector is definitely on correct as I checked that earlier and there's only one method of insertion.

    On your other point. The mic doesn't work in the "green" port as it would in the pink it doesn't give me an option although weirdly the headphones work if i put them in the headphone port and select headphone instead of mic

    Yup installed the driver from their website so have this software *Smile

    yes a little bit similar but not quite and I don't use an external sound card so I don't think this could be the issue. I'll check my bios settings now though

    Edit: Bios checked and only audio option is HD Audio Enable/Disable

    It's enabled

  10. I think it'll be tucked away in the Realtek software and you'll have to enable/disable auto detection of plugged in devices. Then when you plug your headphones in it'll ask what it is.

    What happens if you lie to it and tell it you've plugged the headphones in instead of telling it mic? and vice versa

    I can make the headphones work but as you can see the Mic port doesn't give me the option for Mic in.

    If I plug the mic into the headphone port it gives me the option for mic in but it doesn't actually work or pick up any voice
