How to connect the headset to the front panel sockets

New computers are equipped with sockets for connecting the headset from the front panel of the CPU.

To do this you must first divert the connection to the front panel. To do this open control panel in windows and click on the “realtek sound effect manager”. Select the Audio I/O tab and then open connector settings, by clicking on the spanner shaped icon near Analog Back Panel layout.

Check the AC97 front panel support check box and then give ok. Now connect the headset to the front panel and enjoy the sound.

If you have other drivers a similar process will do.
