Back in late July / early September I got a new hard drive. But since then my sound hasn't been working. I opened it up today to see if I could figure out what was going on, but I haven't until today because I've got no clue about the inside.
But after some googling, and a lot of pictures I noticed that the pins for the sound weren't connected. I know there are guides on how to set it up but they aren't properly labeled with left audio or something to that effect. There IS a tag that says they're USB wires though. But how am I supposed to know what goes where?
It says there's 2 USB PWR pins, 0- , 0+ , +1 , and ground. This is foreign to me don't judge me lmfao.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you saying when you plug speakers in you get no sound out of them?
The sound is integrated on the motherboard by your description so there would be nothing to connect.
By your description you would be talking about either the motherboard speaker or a connection from the cdrom to the motherboard for sound.

I just explained it to you. There is no place to connect the onboard sound for speakers.
The sound chip is built on the motherboard as you put it and is activated when the system is turned on.

Since you don't provide what Os you are running i am posting the generic instructions on how to see if the drivers for the sound are even loaded.

Please Go to

1: START and the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter


To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

Windows XP Home Edition.
I've downloaded motherboard drivers, Realtek drivers, and nothing.
And I wasn't trying to go straight from the motherboard to speakers I was trying to connect the actual onboard sound in general.

What are you trying to connect the sound to? That is where the confusion is because the soundchip routes right to the back of the motherboard where the speakers plug in.
Can you get a picture of the connections you are describing because it is just not making sense.
Also please check the following for me.

OK then I need to see what the Audio Properties show as your default audio device.
Go to Start and then to Control Panel
Right click on the Sound or Audio Devices and then click on Properties
At the top of the window click on Audio and what does it say for Default Audio Device?
Click on Playback and same information?



OK then lets make sure the audio is enabled in the bios.
Reboot the system and at the first post screen tap the Del key normally and it should get you into the BIOS
In there find either the Advanced, Onboard or Integrated Peripherals areas.
Using the keyboard arrow keys scroll down to the Audio entry and make sure it is Enabled and if not then look at the bottom of the screen it will tell you how to adjust or modify the values to Enable it.
When done make sure to click F10 to Save and Exit with the setting.
You will then be asked to click Y to Verify the Save and Exit
The system will now reboot with the new settings saved.
Let me know if this helps.

Audio is on is BIOS.. Nothing specific though.

There is no default, or anything. Because the sound isn't connected inside.
See 2.JPG ..

3.JPG is what my motherboard looks like. Somewhere in the circled area is where The 9 pins are connected ( I believe ) .. But they aren't connected due to somebody that installed my hard drive and unplugged the sound by mistake. Now there are the 9 pins to connect, and I don't know where or how to connect them because for 1. They aren't labelled "Left audio" .. etc, and there's no labelled area for audio.

Get it? Please?

OK hopefully this will make it easier to see what you are trying to connect.
First pic is the motherboard layout and the speaker connection shown.
The second pic is a closer pic of what you just sent me with the names of the connections. There is no 8 pin connection you are describing.

There's a bundle of wires named "HD Audio" .. It has the same shape as the AAFP , but problem is there's something already connected there.

Can you read what the connections are that are already connected?
Also did you check the bios to make sure the audio onboard is enabled?

By connected I assume you mean it is enabled?

OK the AC97 is the generic sound. Can you tell where the wires that are already connected go to?

Yes, sorry that is what I meant.

The wires are connected to the audio / microphone in the front of the tower.
The AC'97 and the HD AUDIO are both part of the sample bundle of audio wires also, and the AC'97 and HD AUDIO cases have the same shape.

OK that would make sense for audio to come from the front panels.
Now the question is do you get sound if you connect speakers to the front audio?

Brought it in to the shop because the guy offered me a great deal. He said there was a problem with the actual sound part of the motherboard. Either way, it's fixed now. Thanks anyway for helping <3
