    Hi,

    Where are you connecting the front panel audio? If you are not using the on-board audio, you must connect the front panel to the sound card. Some sound cards do not have provisions for front panel connections.

    Moks107,
    In the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel, under the 'Audio I/O' tab, next to the 'Analog: Back Panel' heading; there is a small icon with a spanner on it.
    Click on it and you should get a dialog box with three tick-boxes in it.
    Un-tick the tick-box that says:
    "Disable front panel jack detection.", unless you've done that already.

    The icon for it is in the system tray, at the bottom right of the taskbar.
    The icon looks like an orange speaker. Double click it to enter the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel.

    If you cannot find it there initially:
    Then, click "Start', then 'Run...' and type in:
    Code:
    rthdcpl.exe
    The orange speaker icon then should appear in the system tray.
    Double click it.

    As a last resort, if what I said above fails, go to 'Start', click 'Control Panel', switch to 'Classic View' and look for 'Realtek HD Sound Effect Manager', double click it.

    ummm guys ... if the realtech sound drivers are not installed because the onboard sound is disabled then you aren't going to find them magically in the system tray. They should not be installed if another sound card is being used. moks 107, I believe the first responce was correct. You will need to hook directly to your add on sound card if you want to get sound to the front panel. The other option is to uninstall the add on sound card and use your motherboard sound solution. Basicly you are tryiing to hook up to disabled pins and wondering why they will not work.
