Greetings, this is a common issue with a simple fix, but often overlooked as we have sold many Intel D865GLC and D865GBF motherboards... There is a front panel jumper J2A toward the back PCI slots area, you need to make sure there is a jumper between 5-6 and 9-10 in order to enable the REAR green audio port.. Otherwise if you have no jumpers installed, all audio only goes to the front panel speakers as you mentioned! On the D865GBF there is a white ink marking on the motherboard that shows you this, however on the D865GLC because of the smaller microATX size, there is no space to print that white ink marking... Hope this helps, and if you need a backup or replacement d865glc or d865gbf we still have them.
confirmed. The jumper shows on the manual as J9A2 though. No sound before, sound works perfect afterwards. Using windows 7 with the intel xp drivers offered on this site.
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865grh/sb/CS-021828.htm refers to this oddness, yet says its only in regards to the D865GRH motherboard. Im assuming most of the 865 series are like this.
Yes that is correct a lot of the Intel motherboards has this 10 pin audio block in the back in the same area. However, I checked that link
that you posted. Jumpers 1-2, and 3-4 do not need to be connected in order for the rear audio ports to work.
I am not sure why that link says you need to connect them. The main ones are the 5-6 and 9-10 those two do need
to be jumpered together for audio to work.
It would be great if you would have supplied enough jumper caps to solve the issue. I pretty much have to order them online - because they are hard to find.
