Blue 3.5mm jack not working after BIOS update

I just updated my GA-990FXA-UD3 r.1 to F13 and now only my green jack is working. Before the update I had my headphones plugged into green out and my speakers plugged into blue in and now only the green jack is working. Any ideas?

  1. Have you checked the audio panel to ensure you can not retask it?

    By default without re-tasking, blue is line in. not line out.

    Yeah it is line in, I don't know how I managed to re-task it before. Do you know how to do that for Windows 7? I've scoured the Sound in Control panel and still cannot figure it out, I only know where to find blue line in.
  3. If you are using the onboard sound, you will just need to open the Realtek HD Audio Manager and right click the blue jack to re-task it.

    I don't believe i am, I can;t find Realtek audio, all I can find pertaining to Audio is the control panel sound and VIA HD Audio Deck which doesnt open, i don't even know what that is.
  5. Hmmm.. do you have a dedicated card?

    What sound cards do you have in the device manager?

    I definitely don't have a soundcard, its an onboard panel.

    I have

    It almost seems like your sound card drivers are not installed right.

    You may with to reinstall the sound drivers from the Gigabyte website.

    Does this look familiar? This is what Realtek's software looks like.
