Question New Motherboard. Realtek Speaker not working.

Sep 16, 2019
Hey guys, first time posting here.

I've searched everywhere and nothing really helped me, so I figured I got to make my own post.

I'm running Windows 10 Home.
I just installed a Gigabyte H370 HD3 motherboard into my Corsair Carbide Spec Alpha case. Everything is working fine, besides the audio.

In the playback panel of the sound controls, it tells me that the Realtek Audio Speakers (which was working with the old MB) is not plugged in.

Realtek Digital Output is working but that's not helping me at all.

I do not have proper speakers to actually test out the rear jacks on the MB but the front jack for my headphones does not work and I can't even change the connector settings in the Realtek application.
EDIT: I'm a fool. Of course the connectors work for headphones as well. I tried plugging them in the rear jack but it's not working there either.

The audio connector for the case is plugged into the correct spot on the MB. I've installed the newest drivers.

I'm just at a loss here, could this be a hardware issue??
