    Hi. The sound on my pc does not work correctly. I recently built this machine
    and it has been working great. I built it in my old compaq computer's case,
    using the built in front audio ports and card readers. However, I finally
    bought a new case and it does not have front audio ports. (I didn't use them
    much and didn't care if I lost them.) But now no sound comes out of the
    speakers because there are no front audio ports plugged into the motherboard.
    I know this because I took ports from another computer and plugged them into
    the correct spot inside. Once done, sound came out of the speakers pulgged
    into the back and if I put them into the new port it came out of there as
    well. But I need to know why this is happening. I don't want to have audio
    ports wasted inside the computer just so the back ports work. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if this would matter, but I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate x64.

    You don't say what your motherboard is but i suspect that you need to add two
    jumpers to the audio connector to get the rear audio to work without the
    front panel audio connected to the motherbaord. Check your motherboard manual.

    Thanks Paul. That actually was exactly what was wrong. I forgot to add
    jumpers to pins 5/6 and 9/10. I
