Hi, since the moment I booted my computer for the first time I noticed that anything that I plug into the front panel's audio jacks will not be recognized and therefore will not function. I have a Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G motherboard and am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, the front panel contains a Mic In & Headphone port along with 2 USB ports and what I can imagine is a volume wheel.
I can assume that the panel is wired up correctly as it has been wired/rewired twice by me and another person and because of the fact that its two USB ports function perfectly.
I have searched the web about this problem already and met with a few instances where disabling "front panel jack detection" in Realtek audio manager has fixed the problem for others but this did not help my problem. I am not even met with the pop-up balloon telling me that something was plugged into the jacks.
As far as I can see there is no option relating to the front panel in the BIOS settings and for the record the back audio panels are working fine. The reason that this is becoming such a bother is that I use headphones and speakers which both require the same rear jack meaning that I need to crawl to the back of my machine and switch the cables when I want to swap from headphones to speakers.
I have also made sure to install drivers from Gigabyte's website.
Any ideas anyone?
