Here is the problem. I plugged my speakers into the Green Line Out port as always. Turn on my computer. Yeah....NO SOUND!!! What the...?????
Here are my System Specs.
Motherboard- ASUS M2N4-SLI with AMD 64x2 Processor
2 internal hard drives
Geoforce Video Graphics
On-Board Sound (device manager states Realte Audio 97), Lan, USB
2 CD/DVD Media Drives
Now, when i went into my sound setting and changed the speaker config to 6 channel and then plugged my speakers into the BLUE port, the sound worked when playing music, videos, etc. However, SYSTEM sounds did NOT work such as warning sounds, error sounds, clicking in I.E., and the Windows Log On and Log Off Sounds. Nothing.
So I then plugged the speakers BACK into the Green Port and nothing happened. NO SOUND AT ALL!!!
So ive updated all my hardware drivers, re-installed my sound drivers, did windows update, reverted all sound options BACK to defaults and ensured that the sound card was on, configured for windows, etc. Everything checks out. The Device Manager reports NO errors whatsoever. everything is working according to it.
Since all I did was pull everything out and put it all back into a new case, no system changes were made at all. everything was still the same when I powered everything on. I just cannot figure out why my Green Sound port isnt working.
Could there be dust inside the actual port, blocking full complete connection from the speakers to the port??
Could there be something loose that is easily fixable?
Can I just plug my speakers into the Blue port and use that for all of my sounds (music, video, system sounds, etc) as if it were the green port???
Please HELP!!! Ive reached the end of the internet trying to research this problem and have found NO help whatsoever! So please...Someone help!!
P.S. I am a Network Administrator and am VERY advanced in Computers. However, When it comes to motherboards and on-board devices...yeah...have never had to work with that stuff...so I know NOTHING about that stuff. But I am, id say, intermediate when it comes to Hardware and then VERY advanced when it comes to Software, Windows, etc. I built my own Server with a Domain, Active Directory, etc. So, I am not totally dumb. But this problem has me stumped. And its getting on my nerves!
