  1. I wouldn't mess with soldering irons like that, just buy the cheapest sound card you can get, or if you have a case with a second green socket, plug it in there.
  2. The internal audio header from the case probably isnt plugged into the motherboard.

    sorry,i looked now..at hd_sound it is'nt any cable like, that, it is only at usb and at chasis head(power,led..)..nothing for sound...i think it has not been foreverer but my sound was working until now.. if my sound is onboard,there must be that cable? and from where it was starting? please make me understand
  5. No thats a serial port, nothing todo with audio. If it was working before and nothing hardware wise has changed then it must be a software problem.

    no,i checked everything...what about audio header cable,it works without it?
  7. No, obviously a cable must go from the motherboard to the front of your case to provide audio. Can please say what model motherboard it is and if possible the case.

    Or are you talking about the socket on the back?
  8. i'm talking about the socket on the back, i have no front panel sockets
  9. Then ignore the header thing. Try some head phones instead of your speakers and see if they work.
  10. they don't work, i checked everything,drivers too...the socket is the problem
  11. Get a cheap sound card.
  12. i have but it's inferior to onboard sound :)
  13. I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with you on that.
