Windows 7: Speaker mode (unable to change to Headphones)

I'm telling you the wires you are looking at there, that are attached to the motherboard are in the correct place and shouldn't be messed with.

There is another plug that should match up to the aafp in the case.

As I was trying to say if you just look at the case where the headphone/mic jack is on the front then look on the inside and follow the wire where do you wind up?

I'm guessing it's something that it looks like this.

at least I hope so, some cases have a mess of loose wires for the front panel audio that's a pain to hookup.

To be perfectly honest, from how unsure of yourself you seem inside that case. I'm thinking it may be best to just deal with the problem.
I'm honestly starting to feel like I may already have you confused.
