Hello all. Alright so I have an issue. I have no front panel audio! However in my case I have a sound card. Now since I have an Asus card that runs on it's own driver (instead of realtek) I can't do the realtek fix. By that I mean that I have read a couple of articles of people fixing it by unchecking a setting in the realtek driver options. So since I have a dedicated audio card, will I just not get front panel audio? Currently if I wish to have headphones plugged in I must plug them directly into my speaker. (speaker has an audio jack) Now as for the friend of mine could he simply navigate to the option under the realtek driver and change it? Anyway, thanks for the couple of answers everyone!
