Front Panel Audio Cable - to Motherboard Head

Specs: Windows XP/Vista
I'am having a problem, connecting my front case audio cable to motherboard Jaudio.

My motherboard is: Commell LV670-M13

My Case is: Mini-ITX Chassis (Wi-02)

Basically, pins on the motherboard socket are the same one as holes on the female connector, byt when you flip header around to make a connection, pin don't match.

Please, take look at the picture, I would greatly appreciate for all of the answers...

Obviously that plug can't be used. No matter which way you turn it, the blank spot on the plug will hit a pin. What you're going to have to do is remove all the wires from the plastic plug housing, then plug each wire individually onto the correct pin.

Looking at the AC'97 plug that you have pictured, do you see how each rectangular hole on the side has a plastic "flap" that catches on the female metal end on the wire? Carefully pry the flap up slightly & pull the wire out from the rear of the plug housing. Then just plug the loose wire onto the correct pin.

Jam, I greatly appreciate for your promt answer!

let me double check, before I start modification.

1) I would pull all the wires from AC 97 plug
2) Connect Connect Each Wire directly to the motherboard?
3) Would I need to buy a new housing plug?

If you re read the instructions he gave you, you remove the wires from the plug and re use the plug by reconfiguring the wires.

I have used hot glue to configure the pins correctly and
hold them as a pin case works great and can be used
about anywhere you need.
