My front panel audio connections do not output any sound and/or my microphone does not work.

Last Update: 2010/02/07

If you are using a AC’97 front panel connection with the 6 series and 590 motherboards then the auto-detect feature for the front panel audio header will not function correctly.  Open the Realtek Audio Manager and disable the front panel detection option.
