  1. I recently replaced my mainboard and processor.

    I installed my DFI Lanparty UT nf3 250gb and my new sempron 3100+ and everything went very smoothly. I have a brand new 120gb Samsung drive with a fresh install of Windows Xp. Here is my problem.

    The Line Out port on the back of the mainboard (onboard sound) does not function. I have resorted to plugging my speakers into the Rear R/L port and using it this way although I don't see this as ideal.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    does your board support fp audio ports? if so, then refer to your manual and find out where this jumper blobk is located. to complete the circuits to the back panel ports, there needs to be one or more jumpers installed on said block as your manual indicates. check that first, as it is most likely the cause. but you have gone over your windows and bios settings twice, right?

    Thank you. Yes I did realize this and fix it just after I posted that, but your information is very useful. Thank you. The motherboard must not have been shipped with those two jumpers, but it works now. Thank you again.
