I just installed this motherboard and there is no "green port" for me to plug in standard 2 speakers. I tried every port and none of them appear to be working for me... How do I get regular speakers to work? It keeps asking me if its a subwoofer or some type of enchanced speakers rather than regular ones.

you should use the rear Red Port as that is the stereo jack!

Thanks, I made a mistake thinking it was the microphone port because it looked pink to me. My speakers are working niw

that port is also for headphones but it is a Amplified Stereo port that is tied to a op-amp to boost the signal up but it works for speakers too as its just for higher quality stereo sound! (Easy mistake for you to make as it is odd its just a weird MSI gaming board thing they did to highlight the amplified stereo port  :hiha:)
