Front Panel Audio Jack not working

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Anyone know why a Front Panel Audio Jack wouldn't work all of a sudden? I reinstalled Vista on an Asus M2R32-MVP mobo, and now my front panel audio jack won't work, Vista won't even see it anymore. It sucks. Anyone have any ideas?

Make sure your header is connected properly?

I would try unplugging it, then turning it on without the front panel hooked. Run some audio stuff, check out control panel...

Then turn your computer off and plug the front panel back in and see what happens

Well, the connector is properly connected, I even tried pinning the connector manually and it still didn't work.

I went through and tried what you suggested, but it didn't work. I'm not quite sure what to do. I may just go ahead and start from scratch - again. It would definitely solve all my issues.

The other one I'm having is that my Vista Bootloader won't take me into XP anymore, and I can't figure out how to get it to work either. It sux.

Is it enabled in the bios? I'm pretty sure there is an option for front audio.

sometimes it is controlled by a jumper that is part of the audio header, but if he has the header plugged in, then it is going to be enabled.

This is a re-install... you had the very same hardware prior to this issue?

Perhaps you are missing a Driver?

If you have the Motherboard CD, you could try re-installing the appropriate drivers?

As you can see if am guessing... but you never know.

Yeah, it's enabled as "HD Audio". The other option is "AC'97 Legacy Audio"

Yep, the header is plugged in and it's enabled.

It's the same hardware, but then again, it's Vista - so it could be any number of things. Unfortunately there aren't any drivers for the onboard card yet (Thanks to Asus), but the built-in Windows Drivers always detected it. I'm thinking that either the jack is dead, wiring is faulty, or maybe I just need to reinstall Vista - AGAIN. I'm not sure yet.

Well, if there is no drivers for the onboard card, that probably means that the windows drivers are using the basic components of your integrated sound, thus, not including the header for the front panel jack...

That makes sense. Under my old Vista installation though, when I used Asus' beta drivers, the front panel jack didn't show up, but when I used the windows default drivers, it showed up. I don't quite undetstand that. Maybe it's because they were beta drivers, I don't know.
