Ecs / 945gz/ct-m

Specs: Windows 7, e4400 intel/2gb
Using Windows 7. It came with some digital audio output and shows me that output goes to my GREEN rear audio jack. This jack failed some time ago.. Of, course, we all have blue, green, and pink jacks.

Is there a way to send my audio-out to the blue jack?

Thx in advance.

Thanks much,

[Solved}...downloaded Realtek Sound Manager. It allows selection of any/all jacks as an in- or out-bound line, speaker, headphones, microphone...whatever one chooses.

Thanks much,

Probably not unless you are good with soldering iron.

Usually pink is Mic In and blue is Line In.

The jacks do not output or input digital audio, they output
or input analog audio.

You may have a separate connector for digital input/output.

If it is on your motherboard, the user manual for your computer
or your motherboard will explain it. If it is on a separate sound
board, the user manual for the sound board will explain it.

Is the problem really with the jack, not with the audio output
going to the jack?

If so, it may be easier to connect to a new jack somewhere
else on your computer, such as in an expansion card slot,
because there usually isn't much room to add jumpers from
one jack to another.

You could buy a jack at Radio Shack, drill a hole in a metal
expansion slot cover, and mount the jack in the hole. You
may need to disconnect at least one of the leads to the
existing green jack in order for the new jack to work. If so,
and you are able to make connections in such a tight space,
then just go ahead and cut the existing connections and
solder in jumpers to the blue jack from the audio output that
currently goes to the green jack.

If the problem is with the audio, not with the jack, then if you
also have black, orange, and maybe gray jacks, you might
possibly somehow be able to switch the front channel signal
to the rear, center, or side outputs. Maybe. If you're both
smart *and* lucky.

If the problem is that you are trying to get digital output from
your green jack, then you need to do a lot more reading
about how your digital audio works.

That pretty much sums it up. Analog & digital audio ports are completely different:

Is your motherboard an ECS 945GZT-M? Did you ever read the manual on how to configure the audio port settings? Are they enabled in the BIOS? Are the drivers installed? Do you have a volume icon in the notification area?

If you're 100% sure the onboard audio is bad, just disable it in the BIOS & install a PCI soundcard.

if it is a desktop computer and you have an available pci slot, you could just buy a sound card.

Thanks all. The green port is bad for sure...has not worked for a couple of years. Consensus is that I just get a sound card. This issue is solved.
