Solved Headphone jack Not working!!!

#1
So today when I go to plug in my headphones into my laptop, the video I was trying to watch today still is playing through the main speakers. I tried multiple pairs of headphones and it still didn't work. The volume coming from the speakers doesn't even shut off, it just keeps playing even though I have headphones plugged in. Any suggestions?

It is recommended to fill out your system specs. I have no idea what your system is or what audio driver/manager you are using.

If you have a realtek HD audio card- Install the audio manager, and set it to allow setting to pop up when jacks are used. That way you can tell it if you inserting headphones,mic, etc, and it will mute the external speakers and use the headphones-otherwise it plays out the speakers (this is common if you have a realtek card, and use the default Microsoft hd sound driver/software codecs. You may also note the "volume knob" does not work)

If you have a realtek card install the realtek driver/audio manager here:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Yes, I have a Realtek card. I tried the link above but it is not working for me. How else would I install the audio manager?

Try the link again.
Click High definition Audio Codecs (Software)
Notice the highlighted Software package and site 2. Download from that one.

The link of High definition Audio Codecs software is not working (Perhaps it has been removed by realtek), can you send me the actual driver you downloaded?

How do you set the audio manager to pop up like that, I don't see settings anywhere, and inside the drop-down list of "speaker arrangements" (e.g. quadriphonic, stereo, etc), I don't see headphones...

I had a similar problem to Shortmantuff's with my desktop, only it was my speakers that had stopped working. I still had onboard sound. After two full days of tearing out my hair and visiting numerous forums, etc., I stumbled on this thread.

Yippee ....... all fixed!

Rive0108, thank you so much for the advice :D
