I'm new to forums, so here it goes. I'm having issues with my onboard audio. Before I get to the issue at hand, it might come in handy to say what I have. -MGE Gamer M1 Case w/ 400W power supply -Gigabyte GA-8IG1000 Pro-G Motherboard -Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz 800MHz FSB -Kingston 1024MB PC-3200 DDR (512x2) -Western Digital 250GB 7200RPM IDE -ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB -One 120mm front fan, two 80mm rear fans -Logitech Z-5300 Speakers With that said and done, on to the problem. Recently, while cleaning my computer, I connected my front headphone and mic jacks to my motherboard. After finishing cleaning my computer and plugging in the jacks, I turned on my computer to find that the audio was not being processed correctly. My onboard audio controls said that the front speakers where not properly connected to the Line Out jack, when in fact they were. The sound seemed to come primarily from the front left speaker, where as there was seemingly no sound coming from the front right. When I leaned in to hear it, the sound was very soft and sounded distorted. I turned off my computer, unplugged the the front audio ports, reconnected the jumpers, but there was no change. I reinstalled the RealTek Audio drivers and ultimately reformatted my C drive to no avail. RealTek advised I reinstall my drivers, and I'm currently waiting to hear back from Gigabyte. In the meantime I was wondering if there was anyone that would have any knowledge or experience of anything of this sort. I realize onboard audio is not the first choice for gaming, mp3's, 5.1 surround sound, but seeing as I'm a college student and used my money buying the rest of the parts for my computer, I compromised on the audio, a decision I'm now regretting. Any help would be appreciated.
