Usually, there is a front panel audio connector that will mate with the connector on the motherboard. In older systems it is labeled "AC97". On newer systems there is also "HD Audio" connector. What you have on the motherboard looks like it would interface with either AC 97 or HD Audio front panel connectors (HD Audio is preferred if available). If you just have individual wires that is a very old system. You would have to refer to the case documentation for what goes where.

No I don't have any documentation no more.

Can you help me just getting it right? It used to work before but I've forgot to write the correct places for each cable down and now I'm facing with that problem.

Can anyone help me getting them right? Like this

Spkout_R - (Port 1R?)
Spkout_L - Port_2R?)
Return_L - (Port 1L?)
Return_R - (Port 2L?
Those are the cables that I think going there and yes these are individual cables.

I saw the manual but the names of the pins are different (See the very first post)

I dont know what's going to Sense pin and so on. The wires I have are named differently so basically I have to guess them.

Manual Say
1 PORT 1L
2 AUD_GND
3 PORT 1R
4 PRESENCE#
5 PORT 2R
6 SENSE1_RETURN
7 SENSE_SEND
8 KEY
9 PORT 2L
10 SENSE2_RETURN


But my cables are:

GND
Mic_in
Mic_Bias
Spkout_R
Spkout_L
Return_L
Return_Rˇ

So what wire are going to where? Please help

The link that I referenced you to should be all that's needed to connect what you have. Here is the chart in that link. It shows what each pin on the motherboard connector does.
