help with sound trouble

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i just finished my build using msi z68 mobo and everything has been up and running for a couple of days now, all the drivers are installed. However, i just plugged in the speakers last night and they will not work. ive tried all the slots even the front panel one. ive also tried using my head phones and no sound is coming out. the sound gauge in the device properties is showing that it is reading the music file that im playing. what could be the problem? the audio jacks are on the board itself, so it couldnt be a wiring problem right?

Well first things first, make sure sound output is not muted. Second, right click on the sound icon in the taskbar and select playback devices. Check to see if anything is showing up and we can go from there.

I understand you are not getting audio out of the S/PDIF connector on the I/O panel. There is a configuration Realtec audio utility but I am assuming you have stepped through that. Did the motherboard include an optional S/PDIF out bracket? If so it will connect into plug JSP1 at bottom left of your motherboard. Maybe that output is functioning. Also, a long shot but you can try and connect your speakers to the I/O panel S/PDIF connector with the computer off and when it boots up it might detect the connection and route the audio there.

EDIT: If you think it might be a windows issue go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Manage Audio Devices>Click on S/PDIF and then select as default device. A Green check mark will show up on S/PDIF. Its worth a shot.

I don't think that should say digital output. You should have a speakers/heaphones playback device using the realtek onboard audio. Are your motherboards audio drivers installed?

im not sure what an optional S/PDIF bracket would be. however i am looking at the mobo right now and the jaud1 slot is being used by the hdaud wire for the front panel of the case, and the 3-pin SPDIF JSP1 slot next to it has nothing plugged into it. not sure if that set up is correct.

Forget about SPDIF connectors for right now, you have to get the drivers for your onboard audio installed and setup to ouput correctly. You cannot hookup headphones/speakers directly to SPDIF unless they contain a DAC.

i have all the drivers on there. form the mobo cd, then live update. even tried reinstall them. the programs are showing that it is playing the audio file just not putting out any sound. think i might reinstall windows and try to see if works from there. could it be a bad mobo?
