Built new PC; audio only comes out from one side

Hello,

I just built a new PC and I tried plugging into it 2 different headsets through the front audio panel port but I can only hear audio through 1 side.

I am using the Z270 GAMING M7 motherboard and I tried installing the Realtek HD Audio Manager but that didn't help.

Thanks in advance, let me know if anymore information is required.

make sure that the audio connector for the case is plugged into the motherboard right, if that dose not work then this is more likely an issue with the case's audio connector rather then the motherboard. have you tried plugging it in the back of the PC?

Hey, thanks for your reply.

I tried unplugging the HD Audio cable and putting it back in and that affected nothing. I put the same headset in the back of the PC and it works well. I think I will just end up using the back, unless someone has a better suggestion.

yea that sounds like a case audio cable problem then, there is a bit less static interference when puled into the back of the motherboard anyway so if its not too much of an inconvenience its probably for the best.

I think I will keep it that way, thanks.
