no it is not a daughter board it is soldered onto the mobo at the back I/O panel and I've tried wiggling the plug and the ports on the board to no avail. I also removed it from the case to make sure there were no extra standoffs or and thing else that might short it out and nothing. linnemeyerhere
i do not have the front panel connected to the board because they are different headers, i did read some where about putting jumpers on the JAUDIO header so i read up on my board and did what was recommended and still nothing. I guess my final solution would be to return the board for a new one. Thank you all for your advice and help and I'll re post the new board's performance in about a week.
