SigmaTel Audio Error...

I have all the needed drivers installed...so I think. I installed the ones that came on the mobo cd and I do actually get audio coming from my speakers but it breaks up A LOT. I thought it was because of Intel Audio Studio program constantly doing testing on anything I try to play...testing with the ports that is. So I removed the program and the same thing keeps happening so I have no clue what is going on.

My case has an audio port on the front of it as well as the main one on the back. I noticed what was happening with the audio studio program as it kept jumping from the back port to the front port over and over at random intervals.

So to test I unplugged my speakers from the back port and plugged them into the front port and there is no breaking at all BUT it only works on one speaker that way. I don't want to use the front port of course I was just testing. Anyway, is there a way to deactivate the front port inside the BIOS or Windows or do I have to disconnect the wire itself? I dont want to do that because I am pretty sure it is just one wire to run all my front ports...USB, audio, etc...

Some motherboards have jumpers on the motherboard to jump the front audoi ports when not in use. Others don't have this.




This should give you an idea on what to look for.
