i have a GA-MA69GM-S2H AM2 and I'm having problems getting the on board audio jacks on back working. i understand there is a known/unknown problem with this motherboard with vista even though its supposed to be vista compatible. any help would be great.

i did verify bios.

Which jacks are you trying to use? S/PDIF or the mini-jacks?
What Realtek driver version are you using?
Have you gone into the Realtek GUI and set up your audio and speakers?

i have same problem, exactly... but with GA-X48-DQ6 , i asked the same question here, in anandtech's forum, in Guru3D's forum and in Vista64's forum... no one could help me :( 

like u, i cant get sound out of analog back panel AND front panel, mic doesnt work also. i dont know if the digital output works, i dont have anything to test that!

in the realtek audio manager, the back panel is inactive!

i think we have same problems :cry:  i e-mailed gigabyte and they just apologized :o  (i dont know what can i do with that answer!!! is it going to solve my problem?! no! ).
i also e-mailed Realtek last week, they didnt even answer! ( that's much more better than apology!)
i dont know what to do !!!

at least im happy im not alone :hello: 

these are some screenshots, if u have same problem, lets do something about it together, maybe we will find an answer... (and dont worry, if u dont want to, i wont bother u!)

these are the things that i tried till now ( for past 18 days!) and still no sound !

and i forgot to mention that i tried Win XP SP2 & SP3, Win Vista Ultimate 32 Bit SP1 and 64 Bit SP1... no difference!

i spent a couple of hours on the phone with tech support with np prevail. im setting up an rma.

i never had a problem getting the hdm working. unfortunately it wasn't powerful enough to handle blu ray so i bought a grafic card. works much better.
