Front panel audio connections to motherboard Not Working!

Building a new rig, but for some reason there is no sound when I boot the machine up, the sound always come's from the front panel audio connections to motherboard and case Hd audio or AC97 wires which are both compatible on my motherboard.

The gaming case is a Antec 900, it all seems wired up correctly, just puzzled in why I can't here the beep sound when it boots up, any one got any suggestions please.

The "Beep" sound that I think you're referring to is the post beep.

That does not come from the front panel audio connections.

That comes from the Motherboard speaker and is a separate connection.

If you want to hear the post beep, get a hold of a motherboard speaker. It's a little tiny thing that plugs into 2 of the pins on the bottom right hand corner of your Motherboard.

The function of this speaker is only for those little beeps and does nothing else of value. But it can be handy if you have a hardware failure or something like that. Each motherboard has it's own little morse code of beeps depending on what is going on. A single beep means everything is cool and it kicks off into the boot sequence.

O'k being a half novice I'm wondering where the motherboard speaker wire goes too from the pins you speak off, I have fitted in a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R REV 2.0, thank you for the quick reply and help.

A motherboard speaker is it's own little thing that sometimes ships with the motherboard.. sometimes not. If you look at the connections down where you plugged in your wires for the HDD light and Power switch, you will see a couple connections there listed as " Speaker"

Get one of these and plug it in on those pins.

They are dirt cheap. Got a dollar?
