Reassigning Audio Ports

  1. I just got a new computer built for me for next to nothing, so I can't really complain ,but I'm not much of a tech so I can't figure this bit out on my own...

    The problem is that the standard line out port for a simple 2 channel speaker setup (the green guy) is broken. The guy who built it for me says that it's easily reassigned to a different port in the Realtek AC97 software that's on the box, but I can't do it, and I can't find any help at the Realtek site. It shouldn't have anything to change on the motherboard, but does anyone have more experience with the AC97 software who could point me in the right direction?

    It's onboard.

    an easy fix would be to buy a cheap sound card if you have an open pci slot.

    and then just use the sound card for your sound.

    You know, that's probably the smartest option... it's not as if I'm looking for high end sound from two cheapo speakers anyway, and even I can slap in a sound card. Maybe I'll give that a shot. Thanks!
