Question about Realtek

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys after just recovering from a water cooling debacle that was finally fixed and solved I just came across another problem and hoping this is the right forum to post this in.

I have an obsidian 800d case and an asus p6x58d premium mobo with the 1501 bios flashed.

My question is that for some reason Realtek is showing that I have a mic/headphone plugged into the front panel when I dont have one plugged in at all. I cant play audio through my Line in because its saying that my front panel is activated. I just switched cases but kept all the same components. Im stumped on what I should do.

And sorry if this is the wrong forum to post in I just thought maybe some audio guys have ran into this problem before.

Thanks in advanced

Unplug the front panel audio connector to see if the audio works normaly from the rear, if it does, then observe the pin-out of the front panel audio plug and compare it to the one on the Mobo manual. I had a thermaltake case that did something similar and it was because the pin out of the fp audio was different from the mobo connector. Just use a really small screw driver to pop out the wire leads from the front panel plug on the case and rearrange them in the right order.

Alternatively, something could be shorting out the microphone jack and causing it to appear active. Chase the wires to make sure no debris or poor wire connections exist.

Thanks for the speedy response. I unplugged the connector off the mobo and the Line In from the rear does in fact work. So Ill have to look into the pins.

No Problem.

Come to find out, the front panel mic on the 800d has been known to be faulty, I would contact Corsair for a replacement front panel board if the problem is not easy to find.

does the connector have an AC97 and a HD audio lead on it? Have you tried them both? Mine has both and I use the HD Audio on my sound card without issue - but my case is a 600t.
