Hi, we need rather more info other than 'my audio isnt working!

Is it Desktop or Laptop, what OS? XP/Vista/ME etc. Is it on-board sound or through a Sound card - that's just for starters but gives us something to work on.

its a desktop, and the little wires that connect the sound card are the wrong way round and i don't which way they go, do u have any idea, and its an XP, its on-board

OK so it is XP on a Desktop - the rest of your comment is contradicting itself - talking about Sound Card and then On-board? Which is it? and are you talking about the external Speaker connections on the back of PC, or Internal connections to the Motherboard?

Sorry about all the questions ....

Right, sorry, it is On-board. And i think it is the internal connections, i keep getting error messages saying that there isn't a sound card or whatever on-board card connected so i can't play music. My mother board is - Rio (GA-8TRC410MNF-RH) Motherboard

The 'little wires' which I think should be marked 'Snd' or 'Aud' should be connected to the 9-pin header connection marked Azalia FP near the edge of the Motherboard near the PCI slots. If the 'little wires' have a 9-socket little plug on the end you should line up the one blank connection in the plug with the one blank connection on the motherboard.

You might also need to make sure that the on-board Sound in enabled in the BIOS.

Do you have the User Manual or Instruction Guide for the Motherboard? I could show you a picture of the connection if you don't have it.

  spagcat 22:12 08 May 2008

No sorry, i don't have anything =( and i am short of time, i gotta go in 15mins, if you could help me as much as you can would be really appreacited =)
i just need to know where all the cables like, Mic-1n and Mic-bias go, those kinda things
