  1. I got a M5A99x Evo Re2.0, brand new board and the audio from the rear doesnt work at all when I plug the pink and green plugs. I have an HDMI connecting from my TV to my Gcard, I get audio through the TV but cant seem to get those jacks working. Ive used two different headsets to see if it might have been the headset itself. im really stumped.

    Have you gone into the sound menu in your control panel and set your default audio device to your headset?

    If, under the "playback" tab, the HDMI output is ticked, then this is the problem.

    Just click on the correct device(It should either list your headphones or say "high definition audio", or something similar) and then click "set default".

    This should solve the problem. (y)

    Ive already tried this. USB and HDMI audio works fine, but I cant seem to get analog to work correctly.

    I'm not too sure then, it could well be a motherboard problem, however I'm not an expert on these things :p
