I bought a PC from IbuyPower a wile ago. And I was thrilled that my computer had drivers for "Digital audio (S/PDIF)". But one issue, there is no audio port for it! No "Coxail", no "Optical", No mini toslink port like on the back of consoles. Here is a screenshot: http://gyazo.com/f6883c4ff759dfcae2279255fb87bfb5 and http://gyazo.com/210982e24586a2ccca6fc69570d806be As you can see, it looks like its functioning properly. Still, no port. I've tried hooking them up to the line out and the line in ports too. Nothing. Can anyone explain why its doing this and/or a tutorial how to fix?

Hi Makel494, See this Intel link as to how a SPDIF panel can be placed or install. Typically the SPDIF interface is not needed as nowadays the usual 3.5 audio and HDMI ports are the most commonly used in sound setups.

Do you have an orange or yellow RCA jack on the back of your system, it may be over by the PS2 slots.   A picture of the back of your machine would be helpful.
