I recently built a PC with a brand new Asus P9X79 motherboard.
The sound will not work despite my best efforts and having tried literally everything.
The front panel audio and the any rear audio jacks are not working. I have tested my speakers and have confirmed that they are in perfect working order. The speakers only output is a male green audio jack which does not work with the motherboard.
I've switched audio in the bios from HD to AC97, cleared CMOS, used different speakers, uninstalled and freshly installed realtek drivers, disabled and re-enabled audio devices in the dev manager. I am starting to wonder if its a motherboard problem but if theres any fix at all to this situation ill take it. I figured id ask more knowledgeable people. And i previously had Windows 7 installed, still did not work. PLEASE HELP GUYS!! It recognizes my speakers in the playback devices and the audio goes up and down when a song plays,
