For some reason, the on-board audio doesn't recognize the front headphone and mic ports. When I plug them in to the back ports, it recognizes them but programs don't. By that I mean the box pops up confirming what you plugged in and when I speak in to the mic I can hear it through the speakers, but programs don't recognize it. I installed BF2142 yesterday and when it got to where you set up your mic speaking in to it, it didn't receive anything. I had the same problem when I installed my Logitech web cam. Both the headset and the mic that is built-in to the web cam weren't recognized. Any idea what the problem is? So far, I'm hating the on-board audio.
