Hey everyone, very stumped on a small issue with a new PC I just put together. For some reason, the sound is only available through the front mini jack and not the rear? What does this indicate? Do I have something wired wrong?

Drivers are all installed properly, just no audio out of the back port.

The board is a Gigabyte GA-85661FXM-775

Thanks alot.

Front audio is usually wired in a pass through configuration.
If there is something plugged in the front,it will shut off audio to the back.
If nothing is plugged in the front,the contacts in the miniplugs will
pass the audio to the back.

Thats the odd thing, even when I have nothing plugged into the front, NOTHING comes out the back, only the front gives audio. I can not be certain, but the last motherboard I had in this case (which I had to replace because of a bad onboard video chip) had the same issue? I am at a total loss, any ideas??

You might give us an idea of how you have it connected so we can
check the configuration.
Also,you can try disconecting the front audio and put the jumpers on the board
and see if you get rear audio.
Usually the jumpers will go from left out to left in
and right out to right in.
If it works like this,then the front jacks may be defective,
or the wiring bad.

Well the audio is onboad, and all Ive done is connect the front audio cable to the pins as instructed in the manual. I will try removing the front audio cable and put the jumpers back on the pins. Id really like to have both ports working.
