    My mate just got his new pc. It has a Gigabyte M55SLI-S4 Rev 2.0 motherboard.
    Basically, his sound is not working properly. We have updated all the drivers for the sound and it didn't clear up the problem.

    Anyway, all his speakers are connected properly and produce sound, all but his front speakers (green jack). In this first screenshot, it says it's not connected properly.

    So, he changed an option which changed the (green jack) to power speakers, which then recognizes the front speakers, but still no sound.(Screenshot below) We have no idea where to go to from here.

    Ideas?

    "According to the result of sensing?" lol

    Try switching the front speakers with one of the other pairs. That will tell you whether the problem follows the speakers or sticks with the jack.

    Well the speakers work fine with other computers. It's clearly not the speakers. Need to know how to solve this issue. If not, then we may need to invest in a sound card..

    But if we can save money, please help out thanks!

    okay the problem has been fixed. on my new case (thermaltake matrix) the front panel audio had 2 connectors to connect to the F_AUDIO on it for some reason and i was using the wrong one. i switched to the other one and it works fine. this one has a jumper to connect pin 9 and 10, and a jumper to connect pin 5 and 6 together refer to motherboard manual for pin numbers. hope that helps. i am using a gigabyte nForce 4 SLI series motherboard.
