My motherboard is Asus m4n68t -m le v2...Ever since i purchased this motherboard my front panel ports are not working...Back side ports are working fine...I checked with Real tek and VIA HD Audio driver..But none solved..In my System tray it always shows Digital Audio(HDMI)..But my Monitor is connected via VGA not via
HDMI(HD 6670 GPU)...So i thought its the problem with cabinet so i purchased new cabinet..But the problem still exist...
Now i'm fed up and writing here for solution(this might be the last attempt)...I found on Internet that changing HD audio to AC 97 in bios will get front panel audio ports work...But nothing Worked...In device manager I only see Digital audio(HDMI) Under audio and 2 USB controller and 2 root under USB option....

OS is Windows 7

Someone help me over here plz...

Recheck the motherboard to see if the front panel cables are properly plugged in.

Do this if not done yet. For audio ports

There are two types of Front panel connectors
All LOCAL cabinets have AC '97 front panel audio wire connectors, and the default Realtek control panel in computer is configured for HD audio
Cabinets like CoolerMaster or other branded ones give both type of connectors LIKE THIS

I don't see any front panel audio option called legacy in bios...There is only Two options called HD audio and AC'97...I tried both but none helped..

I used Zenith cabinet before..I thought Asus Mobo doesn't supporting cabinet or there might me wiring problem so i bought New cabinet is Iball i8298 today itself..But the same issue..Audio ports and USB ports are not working...

In device manager i see only 2 Usb options i.e back side...There are 3 USB pins in my motherboard i connected all 3 1 by 1..No solution...

Recheck the motherboard to see if the front panel cables are properly plugged in.

Yes every pin is properly plugged in...

Select install this driver software anyway
And there is no separate driver for ac97 and hd audio. Only one.

Even in via hd audio control panel, there might be option to disable hd audio and select as ac97,
I had a Asus mobo with via hd audio, will check in it and reply

Edit: realtek drivers won't work for you as you have via hd audio chipset... Did you Download the default driver from the mobo's website

Will check in a asus mobo tomorrow and reply you...
And actually my current pc when ac97 Is selected, it assumes that earphones are plugged in the front panel every time, and they are high lighted as plugged in....
Could you post a screen shot of the "playback" tab in sound settings from control panel

Now its working....:)

What i did was updated my bios then selected front panel audio to AC 97 in the bios and then Downloaded latest VIA audio driver from Asus site then changed front panel audio to AC 97 in the VIA control panel...And it worked...

I did this before but it didn't worked.Seems bios update did the trick...

But Still USB problem didn't solved...What is happening is whenever i Insert USB,windows shows "Unknown device"..I tried updating drivers in device manager but it worked...And the USB stops working(undetected) in any other working port or computer...I wasted 4 of my USB drives to check if its working or not,2 are under replacement(with my old cabi) and 1 usb extention cable(with new 1)... :-\

I had downloaded only Bios and Audio drivers from Asus site..Chipset drivers,Epu are from Asus driver dvd...

I found the solution and now USB ports are working...There is an upper filter in Registry,followed the microsoft post and deleted that filter,Changed USB legacy from Auto to Enable in the bios and now its working...

Thanks guys for having patience and for helping... :)
