Item Description Reference Designator
A Front panel audio connector/jumper block J9B1
B BIOS Setup configuration jumper block J6H2


Front panel audio connector/jumper block
This connector has two functions:
  • With jumpers installed, the audio line out signals are routed to the back panel audio line out connector.
  • With jumpers removed, the connector provides audio line out and mic in signals for front panel audio connectors.

The table below describes the two configurations of this connector/jumper block.

Caution:
Do not place jumpers on this block in any configuration other than the one described in the table below. Other jumper configurations are not supported and could damage the Intel Desktop Board D845EBT.

Jumper Setting Configuration
5 and 6
9 and 10
Front out signals if 6-channel audio (line out signals if 2-channel audio) are routed to the back panel line out connector.
No jumpers installed Mic in and front out signals if 6-channel audio (line out signals if 2-channel audio) are available for connection to front panel audio connectors.

Note: When the jumpers are removed and this connector is used for front panel audio, the back panel audio line out and mic in connectors are disabled.

BIOS setup configuration jumper block
The 3-pin jumper block determines the BIOS Setup program's mode. The table below describes the jumper settings for the three modes: normal, configure, and recovery. When the jumper is set to configuration mode and the computer is powered-up, the BIOS compares the processor version and the microcode version in the BIOS and reports if the two match.
