Ok, you know the ugly grey cables that connect the front "utilities" (USB, firewire, sound ports, etc.) to the motherboard? Yeah, well, my 75G2 evidently doesn't want to produce sound without those cables in there. Anyone know any "hacks" to fix this (besides a $70 sound card), just so I can look inside my case and find no cables running through the middle of it? Also, anyone know of a BIOS/third party software where you can adjust the FSB/RAM divider, so I can get it off this horrendous 4:5? Thanks.

My desktop MB will do kind of the same thing. Either I have to have a front port audio connection hooked up, or (by default) it has a set of jumpers to short out those pins. I think a headphone jack automaticly shorts out it's connectors without a plug in the jack.

Find some jumpers from an old modem or motherboard and jump each of the audio pins on the motherboard header.
