2.4 P4 w/800fsb
2 x 512 corsair DDR400
80gb SATA seagate HDD
LG CRRW/DVDROM and a floppy
Installed latest drivers. Ran sisoft sandra burn-in... everything
seems great EXCEPT:
1) Front panel mic input and headphone jack are NOISY. Actually, much
more noise and distortion than actual sound. Anyone have suggestions
on how to troubleshoot this?
2) Front USB ports are DOA. (rear 4 ports are fine) Is there something
I was missed in the install? Or some activation step?
OR could these problems be related?!?
Thanks in advance for any help...
Also, you mentioned installing "drivers". Be sure that you installed
the latest chipset drivers, as the chipsets control your USB ports. I
would assume that you did since your rear ports work.
I've done a lot of assuming here, and it reminds me of "long Kiss
"Assumption make an ass out of you and umption."
re: your headphone probs. I remember someone in a forum had that
problem, and I can't remember exactly what the remedy was, but it had
something to do with disabling a setting in your Control Panel/Audio
that was causing interference.
If I can remember exactly what it was I will post back.
You did not specify video (unless it's just the onboard Extreme graphics),
there is a known issue with the onboard audio on the SB61G2 and Radeon
9500/9700 cards that causes bad audio.

Thanks for the suggestions... the front USB was a cable problem.
Just reseated the connector and now it seems okay.
The audio noise still has me baffled... tried about every possible
setting in the AC97 audio manager, but still getting audio garbage.
I'm gonna keep fiddling, but I welcome more ideas.

On my machine, the audio seemed to work and now is completely dead.
I've reinstalled the Realtek drivers, but nothing from either the
front or back panel. So, I don't have any ideas for you. I can see
that Media Player thinks things are player. Frustrating.
hope they get a fix out for this
PS I thought the audi was hosed, no jacks work sat all, then I noticed
the FRONT internal audio connector was unplugged..actaully the rear
was unplugged to , but I noticed that right off the bat when
hope this helps!
seems like a hardware problem, so a bios update wont fix it...or will it?
seem pretty shoddy to sell something for $320 with that bad of audio quality...
if I didnt like it so much , I'd send it back!!-lol
