Audio port config help, showing up as mic

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, a few months ago i built a computer and on the front of my case there is and audio headphone port and a microphone port, but for some reason when i try to use the headphone port ( with normal headphones, or my headset, or anything) it shows up as a microphone! and the microphone port also shows up as a microphone, so basically i cant get any audio out of the audio port...

did i plug something in wrong when building? if anyone can help me i would appreciate it very much!

I have a half x full tower case from cooler master

On some sound cards you can reconfigure ports to be what ever you like. If you go in to realtec or whatever it is the control panel with have a list of front panel connections if to you click that you might be able to configure it as headphone.
