A little problem

I want to listen to music with earphones on the computer but all the earphones I have got really short cords so they can't go to the back of the computer but I got front inputs to plug them in, but they don't work for some reason. When I plug the earphones in the front they don't even show up on the computer. Is the front inputs just simply broke, or am I doing something wrong.

Did you make the computer, and if so did you connect the front panel correctly?

take no offense I don't know your level of expertise. :)

 

 

hmm it's funny you might say that because it is a custom computer, I bought it off of ebay.

So what exactly might not be connected  properly, I'll take a peak inside to see what I see, when I know exactly what you mean.

Most motherboards have a set of pins that connect to little wires that run to the front case. If you have the motherboard manual, or you know what it is you can look up the pinouts and then plug the wires coming from the front in the correct location. Without knowing the model not much help can be provided.

Do you know what motherboard you have?

Theres a wire from the front panel of the case and it connects to a couple of pins on the Motherboard.  Something like Front panel audio connector.  It may say FP AUDIO near it.  if you know the motherboard we could look it up easily.



This is the motherboard 'ECS nVidia GeForce6100SM-M Motherboard'

I have the manual lying around the house somewhere it might take a while to find.



You can get the manual here. Click on europe I found it to be faster.

It looks like its the pins on the green surface.

^Alrght I'll poke around in the computer and see what happens



I didn't see anything out of place everything seemed to be good in the motherboard. (I might of screwed something up the LED light for the power button don't work now lol)

Is there any easy way to take the face of the computer off so I can look at the connections of the front inputs, because I tried looking for screws of just seeing if it'll pop off but it's on there solid and I have no clue how to get it off.

(Also the USB plug ins in the front work, if that helps)



some computer you have to slide the faceplate up to get it off. Also, some newer ones also have a switch you have to hit while you slide it up.

Well it still doesn't work and I can't figure out how the get the faceplate off, but everything seems to be good with the wires so it probably doesn't have anything to do with the connections. Well thanks for the help anyway guys.

Edit: Nevermind, turns out one of my speakers had a plug for earphones in the back and it works, so I don't need those front inputs anymore lol, thanks anyway



can someone help me with this?


in windows firewall exception list, a bunch of things called BND are listed, does anyone know what that is?
