  5. The PC would not provide sound without connecting speakers to the back audio port.
  6. U mean the cables inside the pc may not be connected?
  7. I mean, have you connected something like

  9. From your first post:
    "when i plug in earphones i get sound"
    So, are you getting sound when using the headset?

    yes i get sound with headset and earphones but i want the sound to come out of the pc but its not
  11. The sound would not come out of the PC as the motherboard does not have internal speaker connected. You have to connect external speakers.

    when im watching a video or something , http://gyazo.com/d5881f99c70ef55f15867d2d30cca7f7 the volume bar goes up but there is no sound coming from the pc , also doesnt this mobo have onboard sound?
  13. It has onboard sound (otherwise the headset would not work). It does not have a speaker... let's say onboard.
    Not sure how to explain it more than that.
    Let's take a radio. For sound, it uses a speaker. It's the same with your board. It needs a speaker.
