At present, the sound is working properly from my Vaio laptop's internal
speakers, but when I plug in the headphones to the headphone jack, I don't
get any sound. The driver
is a "high definition audio device" version
6.0.6000.16386 dated 21/06/2006. Vista device manager informs me that "this
device is working properly". Nevertheless, I uninstalled this driver
turned the computer off and restarted it. The computer then reinstalled the
sound driver automatically without any problems. HOWEVER, this didn't fix
So I went into the control panel, selected "hardware and sound", "manage
audio devices", and then set the headphones as the default (instead of
speakers). After doing this, my headphones and external sound system worked
perfectly, BUT when I took the headphones out of the jack, NO SOUND came
from the computer's internal speakers.
Can anyone advise me please, how to get both the computer's internal
speakers and the headphones working properly without the need to be
continually altering settings in the control panel.
Thanks for your help.
