Audio is not working as front panel audio cable is not connected. Help with conn

Hello,
I had recently replaced my asrock conroe mobo with a generic one, (millenium 945). After installing all the drivers, there was still no sound.
I found that the problem was that the front audio panel cables were not connected.
the port on the mobo was a 14 pin block, whereas my older mobo had a 10 pin block. How do i fit the cables?
the cables are labelled:
Line out FL
Line out RL

Mic in R
Gnd

Mic Power (L)

Line out FR
Line out RR

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks
:)

  1. what motherboard are you using now???
  2. pin 1 - mic in
    pin 2 - grd
    pin 3 - mic power
    pin 4 - N/C
    pin 5 - FL
    pin 6 - FR
    pin 7 - N/C
    pin 8 - N/C
    pin 9 - RL
    pin 10 - RR

    N/C = Not Connected.

    This is the usual configuration for front audio, though it would be wise to double check with your motherboard manual.
  3. Are the cables coming from the front port seperate or on a connector block? They should be a standard connector and fit all motherboards.

    @Lokal hero: That would be the standard for a normal 10 pin port.. this one has 14.. :( and motherboard has no manual.. :(
    @bumnut53: the cables are seperate

  5. My God that's a shitty board...

    I can't seem to find a manual for you online.

    I would require a half decent pic of the pin layout on the board in order to give you an idea.

    The specs of the board state it is AC97 too, so I wouldn't have thought all 14 pins would be required. And to state the obvious, you ARE looking at the right header on the board, right?

    Here's the pic of the motherboard and the audio jack?

    Hope it's of some use..

    Thanks for the pics.

    I found this text over at wiki.freekgeek.org .... "The front panel audio usually comes in either a 10-pin or a 14-pin Connection. Either way, most of them are hooked up the same way. If there is no front panel audio on the chassis, There must be jumpers between 5 and 6, and 9 and 10, or the back audio may not work."

    So knowing that, I would connect the panel in the configuration I mentioned earlier. It should work fine.

    so basically ignore the rest of the pins and it should work?
    and the way the cables are clubbed to gether is not a problem?
  11. 1. yes.

    2. If you follow the config I mentioned, then no... Mic in and GRD will go on pin 1 and 2, Mic power on pin 3 etc...
  12. kk thnanks! :) this forum is faster thn most otheres.. :)
    thanks again Lokal Hero
  13. No problem, happy to help. Don't forget to rate the best answer ;)
