    How do I connect an old chassis' front audio panel to a recent MoBo?


    Hi!

    I realize I have an option in the bios to change it to AC 97, but even than the pin names don't match and the logical ways to connect don't seem to work
    Here's what the user manual shows:

    And here are the connectors of the chassis:

  2. No audio from rear I/O audio connection in motherboard panel

    I am not able to get any signal to the rear audio jacks of my Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 Mobo, I am running a licensed version of windows 10 pro x64bit. My speakers are the BOSE Companion 50 with the standard 3.5mm jack. I updated the drivers to the latest Realtek
    HD Audio drivers but to no avail.

    There are 4 audio devices in device manager

    2 in "Audio inputs and outputs"

    - Realtek digital output (Realtek High Definition Audio)

    - Realtek digital output (optical) (Realtek High Definition Audio)

    and 2 in "Sound, Video and Game Controllers"

    - High Definition audio device

    - Realtek High definition audio

    AND...when I plug my speakers into the front chassis HD Audio output.... 3.5mm headphone jack...the sound works fine. (this is plugged into the Front Panel Audio connector (10-1 pin AAFP) on the motherboard.) When this is plugged in,

    a 'speakers (realtek high definition audio)'

    device appears in the "Audio inputs and outputs" in device manger.

    When I plug the speakers into the rear mobo I/O Audio connection, there is recognition from the Asus Realtek HD Audio software that something has been connected, but no sound is output through them at all. I have changed the playback devices to both realtek
    audio and realtek audio (optical), from what I understand, the 'Optical' is the optical output from my motherboard that is labelled SPDIF out on the rear panel? Is that right?

    I just don't know what else to try.

    Its worth mentioning I only built this PC last weekend and so have never had any audio signal from the rear of this motherboard.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Front Panel Headphones and Mic not working.

    Hey Everyone,

    Mobo : ASUS M2N MX SE
    Processor : AMD Athlon X2 5200+
    OS : Windows XP Professional SP2 x86

    My Rear panel Speakers and mic works all fine. I got a new set of headphones(with mic) when i connect it to the front panel they don't work. NO SOUND OUTPUT.

    I updated the audio drivers. I tried a few many things but I still can't get them running.
    My default Sound Manager is Realtek HD Audio Manager.

    Please help me get my Front Panel working. A step-by-step guide would be better.
    Thanks.

    Front Panel Headphones and Mic not working.

    Sounds like your front panel is not connected to the front panel outputs on either your motherboard or your sound card.

    Afraid its a case of referring to your mobo manual and a matter of getting a pair of pliers out and plugging in small finicky wires onto tiny little pins...in the correct order.
