Where does my MOBO Speaker go?

I recently got a gaming pc and it works with a free copy of Windows 10 PRO. Theres an issue, my audio for my speakers and headphones aren't working. The first thing I did was troubleshoot and see if I could figure out the issue. Apparently something wasn't plugged in correctly which is what I suspected. My MOBO is the MSI B250 PRO-VD TURBO m2 came with some cords and a SPEAKER. Firstly I plugged the SPEAKER 4 pin connector onto "SYS_FAN1" Somebody told me it was wrong on reddit so I shut off my PC and plugged it in another 4 pin slot which isnt the best idea. Before most of this I DID CHECK THE MOBO MANUEL, doesn't help me. JAUD1 is where the HD AUDIO goes and it wasnt plugged in correctly only 4 pins out of the other where since my GTX 1050TI was in the way of the time of building so couldn't fot my hand to plug it in too well.

Here are my specs in case you need them - https://pcpartpicker.com/list/KzCLNN

Thanks.

  1. please don't go plugging things into random pins - you can damage your mobo like that.
    the manual from here:

    shows on page 12 that the speaker connects to JPF2

    Lets get one thing straight first, are you talking about the front panel audio connector here ? bigish black block about 8 pins but with 1 blanked off ?, because if you are it doesnt go into JPF2, the little tiny motherboard speaker that comes with some motherboards and cases goes in there, its the speaker that gives the beep codes if something is wrong, and this has nothing to do with output audio or headphones.

    For the front panel connector block, plug that into JAUD1, page 13.

    and finally, you can try downloading the audio drivers from the above linked website to your board, but the basic realtek audio drivers should of been installed with windows, so make sure you have all your leads etc plugged into the correct port on the motherboard audio out, and also inside windows, click on the speaker icon and make sure the realtek HD audio device is the selected audio device and that its not trying to output audio through your graphics card HDMi port or something different.

    The small speaker you where talking about is already plugged into the JFP2 and idk if thats for audio or what not but my MOBO says it supports audio and comes with audio. My MOBO is the MSI B250 PRO-VD TURBO M2 on the box it says word for word "AUDIO BOOST - AUDIO BOOST ensures you can enjoy high quality sound, when playing games, watching movies and listening to music. Im not sure what the issue is my MOBO has its own built-in audio and the HD AUDIO cable is plugged in JAUD1 correctly and made sure everything else was plugged in correctly. I would appreciate help.

    That tiny little speaker is for beep error codes only, if you want to test this tiny speaker, just do something like remove all of your ram and power on the computer, you'll hear it beeping.

    As for your other audio, the onboard hd audio, try unplugging the front panel connector from the motherboard, and use the rear ports, also download the audio drivers from your motherboard site linked above.

    Double check in the bios that the audio chip isn't disabled.
