Hi, I've seen similar problems on this forum, but no solution applied to me. I've just bought a brand new Gigabyte K8NS mainboard with integrated Realtek AC97 Sound chip. The problem is that whenever I connect the speakers to the line out the jack sensing utility recognises it as a Line In, so I can't get ANY sound at all. Tried connecting to the microphone and the line in plug, but it still recognises it as a line in device.. The speakers are good, tested it on a different computer. I have not connected the Front Audio Panel, and the jumpers are set as it's shown in the manual- pins 5-6 and 9-10 are jumpered. I've tried messing with speakers settings, and none worked. (this are 2-chanell stereo speakers). When I dissable the UAJ (universal audio jack) feature, it doesn't swap the line-out into line-in, but still no sound.. this has been a little flustrating, cause I've spend 3 days trying to get it working, with no success.. and I don't want to buy a new PCI soundcard. Please Help.
