I was wondering, is there a way to get the Dell Front Audio connector (10 pins in 1 row) to use with a normal 10-1 audio port?
This is the dell front audio connector:

I would take apart the wires and manually connect them, but I can't find a layout for the Dell one.

This is one of those proprietary Dell things. "Standard" case and motherboard audio connectors are in a 2X5 pattern with one pin missing.

We have a regular here called DellUser1. If he doesn't see this message anytime soon, you might try to Private Message him.

The Dell front panel sound connection matches up with Sound Blaster cards.

Alright, thanks. Ill take it apart and see how it goes.

EDIT: It worked! But then I found out my graphics card was interfering with the signal (damn static whenever anything on my screen moved. Drove me crazy during high end games).
