I'm using the rear panel sockets for my speakers & the front for my headphones, i have the speakers plugged into the same socket i used before installing the card (worked fine then), it is the correct socket, just looked at the wiring & i cant see any wiring i may have dislodged
its pickled my head this because i know that installing a card should'nt affect the sound.
When i have been plugging the speakers into the sockets on the rear panel the sound occasionally comes on as the jack is halfway into the socket but then goes off when its fully into the socket.
Thanks for your help by the way!!
