Okay I'm probably just being stupid here but I just finished my first homebuilt and installed drivers, updates etc.
I reallized I have no sound right now lol
problem 1): I tried plugging in my earphones into the front audio port on the corsair 500R case (I hooked up the HD Audio cable to the appropriate slot on the P8Z68 V PRO motherboard but I hear nothing. if I plug in my earphones on one of the audio ports in the back then I do hear sound
problem 2): I'm using my old lcd tv as my computer monitor, I got a dvi-vga adapter for the graphics which works fine but I forgot about the sound system..the tv's only got av,vga,s-video ports, can I get some cables to hook the computer up to the built in speakers on the tv?
about problem 1), here's what it says about the front panel audio connector in the mobo manual:
This connector is for a chasis-mounted front panel audio I/O module that supports either HD Audio or legacy AC'97 audio standard. connect one end of the front panel audio I/O module cable to this connector.
We recommend that you connect a high-definition front panel audio module to this connector to avail of the motherboard's high-definition audio capability
if you want to connect a high-definition front panel audio module to this connector, set the Front Panel Type item in the BIOS setup to [HD]; if you want to connect a AC'97 front panel audio module to this connector, set the item to [AC97]. By default, this connector is set to [HD]
so...if I just want to plug in simple earphones, do I need to go into the BIOS and change the settings?
thanks man, I had it the right way (it's pretty hard to do it wrong cause one pin is missing but I unplugged it and plugged it back in and now it's working! no idea what happened maybe the connection was loose
