    New case. Front Panel audio output not functioning properly


    Essentially the title explains the issue. I bought a new case b/c my old case's audio jacks went out. (I wanted to upgrade to a full tower anyways) Rebuilt my computer into the new case, audio in the back works perfectly fine, but audio in the front only works in the right side. I've tested the headset on multiple devices and it works perfectly fine. I don't however have multiple headsets to test the front panel.

    What I've checked;

    -Drivers
    -To see if the cable is firmly plugged in (I don't think I would be getting any sound if it wasn't)
    -cleaned both audio jacks, didn't make a difference
    -Speaker properties to see if the levels were correct
    -Realtek audio manager to see if levels were correct
    -No enhancements in either properies or manager are enabled.
    -I used the troubleshooter, didn't work

    Specs;
    i5 3.00 Ghz core
    MSI Z77A-G41
    960 Nvidia GTX 3.5GB
    Corsair 850w power supply
    120GB SSD
    2TB HDD

  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.

    Realtek HD audio speakers "Not plugged in"

    If your case has two front panel audio connection options, did you use the
    HD audio
    motherboard connector ?

    AC97 is 'legacy' and may not work on some current motherboards.

    ( There may also be an option to switch between HD and AC97 in the Realtek audio manager, or BIOS

    when using an HD audio connector. If your Realtek audio manager has this option, play around with

    this for different results with the other settings that control front and back panels )

    - Do either speaker or headphone show in Device Manager, Control Panel > Sound,

    and the Realtek audio manager ?

    'I have like 2 headphones plugged in and two front speakers '

    - Start out with either speakers, or a headphone until you get the audio going.

    Use the rear outputs for the speakers, and front for headphones.

    I would be inclined to try and get the rear speaker output going first because it is connected

    directly to the motherboard.

    I have it plugged in correctly, but I'll double check it to confirm it to absolutely mark it off.

    *Update*
    So I unplugged it, checked for bent prongs, any corrosion (Its a old motherboard), it was plugged in correctly, but I went ahead and plugged it back in like I had it. However, it works now, but here is the weird thing. I have a splitter designed for a phone, but the audio input is the same 2 ring, 3.5mm jack. This is where it gets interesting, with the splitter, the left works, but the right doesn't, where before it was the opposite with the splitter. I need the splitter to be a ble to use my mic.
