Im in a bit of a pickle. Sorry if this is long.

I was using my onboard sound for a long time with no problems. Then it started becoming distorted

So Then i installed a soundblaster sound card. And a multifunctional front panel that had sound sockets,usb connections and memory card slots.

Now the sound card works but the front panel doesnt work for my headphones.

If i take out the sound card the front panel works with headphones and speakers but the onboard sound doesnt work.

All i want is the onboard sound or sound card to work with the speakers and the front panel for headphones so if im listening through the sound card speakers and i plug headphones into the front panel then i want to hear from the headphones and the sound still not playing through the speakers.

So how do i set up both to work.

I'm not 100% sure as I've never had a front panel but it sounds like it's one or the other - all the ports function at the front or all at the back, not half and half (e.g. speaker port at the back & headphone port at the front like you want).

I think we first need to establish what the front panel connects to. Do the wires coming out of the back of the front panel end in a connector like this:

or several of these types of connectors:

Any chance of a larger photo of all of them?

And am I right in thinking those connect onto the motherboard? Or do they plug onto the soundcard somewhere?

I'm not sure but maybe you could just not connect up the ones which correspond to the speaker port..

fine if you dont mind plugging speakers / headphones in every time you want to swap them over

I am having issues with one of my build, well a few since I always seem to have leftover audio connectorsr but they arent needed as the headphone ports on most work anyway but built one a few days ago and the FP audio doesnt work and I have a moulded one similar to the single FP connectors but with 4 holes but only 2 are wired but I dont have anywhere on my board for them apart from a audio port that is a different type so have to use back connectors.

And where do chips cost more that £1.95?

A cheap solution to the problem would be to get one of these:

So you plug your speakers in round the back as normal, plug the extension lead into the headphones socket and then plug your headphones into the extension lead. So, your headphones are plugged into the back.

Ideal solution would be to get the front panel connector sorted though. I can't believe that using one would make the back ports stop working as who plugs their computer speakers into a front port!?

I take it you have checked your speakers dont have a headphone socket in the back.......

not really, its similar to yours but instead of loads of single connectors I have 1 4 pin one but only with 2 wires obv as its a headphone input so only 2 outputs.

I read a few articles that it can be done having dual sound

but it was confusing and didnt understand how to do it.

Exactly that was why i wanted a front panel 1 for the usb ports and 2 to use headphones. But i dont want to plug my speaker jack in the front. I want that in the back
