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
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.
