I just built a desktop this past weekend and I'm having trouble getting the sound to work off the front panel port. I use headphones not to disturb the wife in the next room......so I really need these to work. I can use the Realtek sound manager to test the headphones on the front panel and they work that way but when I play music off the hard drive, DVD drive or CD drive I get nothing. Is this a setting issue?
The mother board is a BIOSTAR A780X-A2 1.0 with a 3.10 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor in a XION Solaris 450W ATX case.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I've seen this before with having the wrong jumper attached inside on the motherboard. Depending on BIOS settings you might want to switch it from whatever it is currently set to, your options should be either HD or AC 97. good luck
