New build problem

  petermontague 22:52 29 Mar 2005

Feeling quite pleased with myself because my first build is just about finished ( have a mass of cables to tidy up and tie back) However I do have one minor problem, I can’t get any sound out of the front panel (top panel in this case) headphone socket.
The front panel connector on the motherboard JAUD1 has nine pins and pin 7 is for future use according to the motherboard manual and pin4 is filtered 5V which I don’t have a plug for.
I have one lead with 3 connectors for mic , ground and mic power which go to pins 1,2 and 3. Another lead has right in & right out and left in &left out and ground. These go to pins 6,7,9&10. There is only one pin marked ground and this is already in use. So I haven’t been able to connect this ground. Is this what is stopping it working.
So although it is only a minor problem, it would be nice to have the headphone socket working. Anyone any thoughts?

Recheck your manual, becuase quite of than not, there's a jumper to set that transfers and redirects the sound from going to the back sockets to the front panel.

Thanks Josie, from my reading of the manual the pins are jumpered if you don't want to use the front socket and not if you want it. Am getting sound out the back of the soundcard ok.

Are you using a sound card or the onboard sound?

Thanks for the link Completealias, I haven't had time to go through it thoroughly but it looks as if it may have the answer. I will check it out later.
AndySD I have a Soundblaster live 24 Bit card. I can get sound out of the rear ports using this or from the on-board sound if I enable that but neither gives sound out of the front. I will maybe get in touch with MSI. The case instructions are rubbish and have caused the only problems that I have had with the build.
