Okay

the only slot left on my mobo is a 4pin black one

The leftover cables from my old tower I am still using are 2 front ones

Used to connect to audio and a firewire I think

They are both front panel audio. The only real difference between them is the pin designations. The case provides both for ease of asseembly, becasue some mobos use the one, and some the other. You will use one or the other, but not both. What mobo hast ye?

then why doesn't my front audio work ??

from the front panel 3 cables come from it

only 2 are connected to the motherboard

the other is a 4 pin I have a picture of in my other topic

there is no room for a 4 pin on my mobo
