Yoga 2 Pro Static/Noise in Headphone Jack

Question: Yoga 2 Pro Static/Noise in Headphone Jack

Hi Guys, For the Yoga 2 Pro owners out there, how much static do you have in your headphone jack? I am loving everything about this laptop except for some noticeable static at low volumes and some backlight bleeding at the bottom of the screen. I have tried two different headsets, my Senheiser HD 280 Pros and my Etymotic earbuds. I am curious how everyone elses behaves. If this is normal I can probably live with it. If I am the only one, I may get it replaced. Build date 11/06/2013, purchased from Lenovo's website. Thanks,Dan

Answer: Yoga 2 Pro Static/Noise in Headphone Jack

Just wanted to add a little bit more detail to this. I just experienced the problem where you plug in your headphones but the audio stops playing. When I plugged the headphones in, there is no noise in the line. Perfectly clean. When I mute and unmute from the keyboard, the audio starts playing again, along with the static.I have the default format set to 24 bits, 192000 Hz. The static noise is present in all options but at 24 bits, 44100 Hz I also get a slight whistle. This plus the mute/unmute fix leads me to believe this is a software issue. If it were a ground issue, I would expect it to always be present?

If Yes
Go in to Control Panel
   Hardware and Sound
          Sound
 
Click on the Playback Tab
       Highlight your speakers with Realtek High definition Audio and click properties down on the lower right corner
                   You will have a new window, click on the enhancements TAB and place a check on Disable all Enhancements, Hit "Apply' Then hit OK"
and check the Sound again if it is OK now
 
   This guide is on this Article titled "Test 5: Disable All Sound Effects In Windows 7"
the guide applies to Windows 8 and 8.1
 
If this guide still did not fix the issue try disabling or mute to Microphone see if that works
 
Hope this helps

To discharge static that may have built up inside your machine follow the steps below: 1. Plug the cable into the socket and the machine. 2. Turn power off at the wall. 3. Hold down the power button on the front of the machine for 1 minute 4. Turn wall socket back on. 5. Turn machine back on.

Hey, so as the title says my Yoga 2 has some problems. Whenever I open or close my yoga it makes a snap/crack/pop sound, seems to be from the hinge. Anyone have any idea if the warranty would cover this? I just got this like the last week of August, so this is really upsetting. Also the headphone jack doesn't work at all, hasn't since the first time I tried it. It doesn't recognize that it is there (I've tried the device manager or whatnot, it is enabled just does not work). When I play music with the headphones in, the sound comes out of the speaker so it is super not working, ha. Any one have a solution?

I own a Thinkpad Yoga 14 20DM and currently there is a high pitched noise through the headphone jack.  Whenever I listen to music or watch a movie, this noise comes on and is extremely annoying.  It only happens when I have headphones or speakers plugged into the laptop. I have sent in my laptop three times to the Repair depot.  The first time was for a touchscreen replacement, and the bottom plastic casing was cracking.  When I got it back, it had this annoying headphone jack issue. I have sent in the laptop twice after that and it still has not been fixed.  The system and audio board have been replaced.  I even sent in the headphones with it and they still couldn't figure it out. I do not know what to do now.  I'm pretty frustrated about the experience and probably won't buy a Lenovo product again.   Is there anything else I can do?

Hi Guys, I got a brand new U160 today and love it, but there's a loud static hiss coming from my headphones when plugged into the headphone jack.  I'm sure it's not an issue with my headphones itself because there's no hiss with other laptops or ipods.  This hiss is present regardless of the volume level and is still there even when on mute. Can someone please help me out here?  Is it simply a matter of re-installing the drivers?  The default audio drivers are Realtek 6.0.1.6093 which is the latest. Thanks in advance.

Dear HP customer service, A few months ago I acquired a HP Pavilion 15-bc035nd laptop. From the start I?ve been experiencing a static ?crackling? noise from the headphone output. It?s not a very loud noise but it?s loud enough to be annoying, especially when listening to quieter genres of music and is ruining the listening experience. I?ve done some research and found that I was far from the only one experiencing this problem. I?ve tried all the suggested fixes such as updating the audio driver software, scanning for malware etc but none seemed to affect the noise issue. I was wondering whether you have come up with a permanent solution to this problem.

So I've had a Lenovo Yoga 710-151KB for about half a year now and it's been pretty good so far, at least compared to my previous laptop. However, its headphone jack suddenly stopped working today. It was working fine before I went to bed last night, and I haven't downloaded anything or even visited any websites other than youtube between then and now. All of my drivers are updated and the headphones work fine with my phone. Also, the laptop seems to recognize when they're plugged in (sound stops coming out of the speakers), but it doesn't recognize what they are (ie the Sound application still lists them as "disconnected"). I tried plugging in my roommate's headphones too and the same thing happened. What should I do?

This is an odd one...
 
I have a Yoga 2 Pro, which has served me very well for over a year now.
 
But very recently I have encountered a problem now.
 
The computer thinks headphones are plugged in all the time now! No sound will come out of the speakers, despite all the windows 10 software telling me that there is no problem, and that the speakers are the only outlet. Even the sound controls recognises sound (the equaliser rise and fall).
 
Sound works perfectly when the headphones are plugged in. And even more recently, the notification that goes 'Information: you have just plugged/unplugged a device into the audio jack' is now alternating andspamming my laptop every once in a while, with sound coming in, and then turning off, with nothing in the jack!
Any advice would be welcomed, as I have trawled the internet to find a solution, yet have come up empty handed.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro - Headphone Jack Problem!

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I'm not an owner of your model, but one thought came to mind.  Possibly the contacts inside the headphone port are sticking thus the machine thinks the headphones are always inserted.  Try repeatedly inserting and removing the headphone plug to see if the problem will clear.

However, I cannot find the headphones or the external microphone in the sound manager to do this. And once I plug in the headphones, the internal mic stops working entirely. I have a Thinkpad laptop that had this problem and I managed to use the Realtek Audio Manager to solve the problem.

Hi, When I plug my Lenova Yoga 13 into the mains to power, there is very audible buzzing noise coming from the heaphone output. This happens both with unpowered headphones as well as externally powered speakers that are plugged in on the same strip. The headphone issue is the one that is a particular concern as I can't understand why there might be grounding issues? I'm a UK user. Is this an uncommon issue?

Answer:Yoga 13 Headphone Hum / Ground Noise

Do you have anything plugged into any of the other ports, apart from the power supply and the headphones?Normally the hum is due to leakage currents flowing from the power supply earth. It may of course be due to excessive ripple from the power supply.

After updating to W10v1511 this issue has since been fixed, and the volume of this hissing has also decreased.I tried a good many things too. Reinstalling the sound drivers, and all that.

My older laptop with Realtek adapter did that. I'm not sure if it's something that Windows did or the Audio driver did. Any ideas how can I get it to switch automatically?

Hi.
Welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of you Thinkpad? Are you using Windows 10?
 
I have a TP Y 14 (20DM008UUS) with one of those ThinkPad In-Ear Headphones (57Y4488) (and Windows 10 64bits) and I don't apreciate any static sound while hearing music or videos.
 
How are you disabling the Nvidia drivers, from Windows Device Manager? Disabling the NVidia display adapter worked for you to remove the noise sound?
 
I always try to keep the Thinkpad Yogas driver up to date. Do you want to give it a try updating the Nvidia and the Realtek drivers?
 
Let me know your model number and we will check the support page for the latest drivers.

3.  Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
 
 
 
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better.

Hello Eight Forums.

My trouble is the audio output through headphones - background is louder than foreground (especially in music - I often cannot hear the vocals at all; movies however are mostly fine, for reasons unknown to me; but generally, the sound is always different in some way).

I only have one pair of headphones to test it with. However these always worked fine with previous machines, and still do work fine with my iPhone 4. Although they are surely not the case, I cannot with confidence say that if it were a loudspeaker instead things wouldn't have been different.

So this is either a software or a hardware issue.

Software

My computer (details at the bottom) came with a SoundBlaster X-Fi MB3 equalizer program and RealTek High Def Audio drivers. I've uninstalled SoundBlaster hoping it would fix the issue (I didn't need an extra program like that anyway) but alas to no avail. Updating the RealTek drivers did no good still.

The only thing I haven't touched is the ghostly NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (can it be the source of my trouble?) - I only first noticed it now when copy/pasting the Belarc data. I'll try and find out about it in the meanwhile.

Hardware

I wonder if it perhaps has something to do with my audio jack (laptop's brand new, but you can never know). I have what appears to be mic, headphone, S/PDIF and line in jacks... Is there a way to use the microphone or the line-in to test the headphones? To see if the headphone out is broken.

Answer:Messed up headphone audio; want to check headphone jack

First, the "My System Specs" is where you fill in what you have.

Does the internal speakers on the laptop work? Is the audio OK on the internal speakers?

The SoundBlaster program(s) is a software enhancement to the basic audio chip (ReaklTek). Many PC's now come with some type of enhancement such as the SoundBlaster or in the case of HP PC's its "Beats Audio".

hi !
ASUS X42F, laptop with combined microphone in / headphone out jack,
how can i connect both a microphone & a headphone ?

Answer:Laptop with combined mic/headphone jack, how to connect both mic & headphone ?

I haven't used one that had the port as a combined unit but I would assume you would need a headphone set with mic that has combined wiring, such as sets used for cell phones and such. You can also purchase an adapter that will split the port into 2 ports for mic and headphones.
Hope that gives you an idea

Well, I uninstalled my audio drivers and noticed that there was a red led shining from inside the 3.5mm headphone jack, which I assume is a mini optical audio (digital) combo 3.5mm audio (analog) jack, and I am figuring that it determins if there is an optical plug or not using drivers, which is why it turned on when I unistalled my audio drivers. I would like to know for sure before I go and buy a mini optical to toslink adpater cable so I can get better audio quality out (the digital interface does not suffer from the interference that the analog does right?). I did some research (research is a bit of an overstatement) and found no sites that mentioned it, so I have decided to turn to the forums. So, is this an optical jack combo? And, how will it work in terms of the drivers, will it just auto select? Thanks.

Hi, I just bought a dell 5567 laptop. The problem is that when I try to connect ordinary 3.5mm earphones  to my laptop's headphone port it doesn't go all the way in. Do I need an adapter for this?

Answer:3.5 mm headphone jack won't fit in headphone/mic combo jack.

JSmith887Do I need an adapter for this?
No it should go in. We have been getting reports of tight jacks. Don't know if it's a quality control issue. Try some different ones and insert more firmly than normally.
If none will go in all the way, but you do hear the audio, I wouldn't be too concerned. If not getting audio (the selection popup does not appear) because it won't go in, then contact tech support or send it back.

If you did not you can possibly take it back to the store you purchased it from to see if they can help you. You can also try removing it yourself.

Alright, so here's the problem. I just recently got this computer and plugged it into the VGA port and the sound wouldn't work. I plugged Logitech External Speakers into it and the computer didn't even acknowledge that it was there. I plugged in Headphones to see if those worked and they didn't aswell. I asked the guy who I got the computer from and he said that it (sound) would work when plugged in using HDMI. So I did that and the sound does work, but only through the TV speakers. It still doesn't acknowledge the speakers or the headphone s when plugged in. So I wen t and grabbed some other speakers I had and tried those and It still didn't recognize the speaker. My question is: How Do I Get My Computer To Recognize My Speakers? Any help would be much appreiciated.

Hi,

I am using a Tiny Media Notebook PIII, 700, Windows 98 SE. The computer is about four years old, and by now the headphone jack, which I use as my sound out port, is about fryed. The contacts have deteriated, and I can not replace the jack, as it is connected to the motherboard. Thus, aside from opting for a usb sound out, such as taking up the Soundblaster MP3+ option, I was wondering if I could reprogram the way in which sound is connected to external devices such as headphones. There are three jacks on the front of my computer: the headphone jack, the microphone jack and er I think it is a line out jack - the later jack which I have never used. Is there anyway I can swop/substitute the connection via the headphone jack say for the microphone jack or line out jack. Is there anyway I could do this?
 

Answer:Substituting the headphone jack with the microphone jack

No, afraid not. Each jack has it's own circuitry which provides for the needed resistance and other parameters. What you could do, if you got to the mobo itself, is to physically replace the jack but that's a major pain on a laptop.

You can try two things, one is to use alcohol and a Q-Tip to thoroughly clean the jack, then use a small bit of steel wool to sand inside with and then again with the alcohol and two, if the jack's worn too big for a tight connection, is to go to Radio Shack and buy a plug in adapter for that size jack. Some come with a slightly oversized male end and then you could plug into the female end and have a tight connection.

I purchased  a  3.5mm 4 Position TRRS Male to 2x 3 Position TRS Female Headset Splitter Adapter for my hyperx cloud headphones to plug into my XPS 15, except the microphone isn't working when its plugged in.
When I plug them in a window comes up 'which device did you plug in?' Mic in, Line in, Dell Devices (lists random unknown devices to me), Headphones/headset - headphones medium, external speakers - external speakers medium. Are these details correct? should something about the microphone come up also? I go to sound options, recording and it's still using the microphone in the laptop.
I tested the headphones on another laptop without the jack and the microphone on the headset is working great. So it's either the splitter isn't doing it's job... or something to do with the laptop, any ideas?

Answer:XPS 15 9560 Headphone jack function as a mic jack?

Well for your case, the headSET option would be correct, since that means a device that offers both headphones (audio out) and a mic -- but note that you do apparently also have a Mic In option, though this would prevent audio output to the headphones.  However, if selecting the headset option isn't working, the issue with the TRRS "standard" is that it isn't a standard. The industry never agreed on which pins would be used for which connectors (Ground, Mic, Left Audio, Right Audio).  I think Samsung did it one way and Apple did it another, for example, and this of course causes interoperability issues.  So if choosing "headset" isn't working, it's probably because the XPS is expecting Option A and your splitter is wired for Option B.Theoretically, given that the audio chipset allows the pins to be dynamically assigned to various purposes depending on the device that's plugged in, it MIGHT be possible to have a "Headset" and "Headset (Alternate Mode)" device option in order to accommodate both TRRS configurations, but I seem to recall one of the TRRS implementation differences being where the Ground pin was placed, and maybe that pin can't be reassigned simply via software, which might explain the absence of such an option. Sorry!

Ok so this laptop is about a week and a half old and I've already had a couple problems with it. But this one is bugging me the most.  Whenever I have the laptop connected to AC power, there is a static/buzzing/beeping noise through my headphones if I have them plugged in through the headphone jack. It isn't loud but it's extremely frustrating during slow songs, quieter parts of songs, or if I am watching a movie that has a part without dialogue. The best part is that when I unplug the laptop, the static completely goes away. I have researched it immensely, but the only solutions I have seen say that there is something wrong with the laptop itself (so I need to get it replaced) and others say that I should take off the third prong on the AC adapter...I honestly don't know what to do and it's really frustrating, so if anyone could help, I would immensely appreciate it. Thank you.

Question: Headphone Jack.

Hey there, I've so I think there must be a problem with my headphone jack, for some reason when I connect my headphone to the jack, I can always only hear on one side of the headphone. I can only hear on both sides when I apply some force to the jack, pushing it to the left and I would have to hold it to that position to get it working properly. I forgot since when I had this problem, but it has been like this for quite some time. and when I plug in the same set of headphones to my phone, it works just fine. I've tried this with 3 different headphones and a pair earphones and the problem still persists, so I'm assuiming it is the jack port that is faulty. I've been okay with having this problem because I would always usually just plug in both headphone and audio jacks in the cpu and insert a pen in between both the jacks, having the headphone jack pushed to the left all the time and making it always work. But just recenly I bought an external kareoke microphone which I planned on using to beatbox with, and when I record and playback, I can only hear from the left side of my headphone. Kinda ticks me off because I've spent a lot of money on my headphones, microphone and microphone jack converter but I still can't get the best out of my products. Plus, I would always switch from speakers to headphones, depending on whether I'm listening to music or gaming. What should I do? :/ (Sorry if I've sent any irrelevant information or my English is bad)

I have a GW M6307 with Vista HP 32bit. The headphone jack has suddenly stopped working.
I have done a restore back to when it was working..uninstalled and reinstalled audio drivers without results. The IDT control panel indicates something else is plugged into the jack both for the mic and HP. I also reinstalled the MS audio drivers that came with the machine. I cannot find any default anywhere to change any setting regarding this. The laptop speakers work but the default to HP when plugged in does not. The speakers conitnue to play with no sound in the HP.There are no indications of a loose connection and the laptop sits on a desk most of the time. I realize this could be a hardware failure but it's hard to believe and I know the headphones work with other devices.

When the "sense pin" fails then there is usually this combination of symptoms:    * Speakers don't work and are not muted or deselected    * Headphone jack does work    * Reinstalling audio driver does not help    * Audio test in Dell 32-bit Diagnostics passes, or the speakers work in PSA tests    * On models with 2 headphone jacks, one may be "checked" in the control panel as if in use    * Sometimes but not always, a very gentle wigg...

Question: headphone jack

While Im in the question mood can anyone tell me why on the two computers I've had the front headphone jack doesn't work? When I asked the tech he said they've never gotten them to work and they've talked to the manufactures who couldn't answer them either. I can plug them in on the back and theywork but they just aren't long enough.

So I just got a Lenovo laptop yesterday for the very first time and I'm having some issues with it.  I stick my external speakers into it, and it does not recognize they are there.  The same goes for headphones.  I even tried plugging them in and going into Playback Devices, but nothing pops up.  What do I need to fix this?  I mean, the audio is good, but not even close to being as good with actual speakers plugged in, especially when listening to music. Oh, if it matters, it is a P500.

When I plug my ipod Headphones Into my ANTEC 1200 Case headphone jack I get excessive static and noise...

Whats weird is that the noise is directly related to what's "on screen"

If have a small graphicall appilication open the noise will be heard... and simple things just minimizing and opening windows..

A great example would be when I defragment my 30 gig ipod... when I start the process I can literally hear the hardrive start up though my headphone! : P

Faint (but noticeable) static when using headphones (or perhaps inaudible on laptop speakers).
The static doesn't get louder with increase in volume and only ceases when the volume is muted.
I've updated as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the audio drivers with no luck.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Headphone static on Inspiron 15 7000 series

Assuming you are hearing the noise while using the Realtek audio driver. As a test install the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (type devmgmt.msc in the search box and hit Enter) and right click on Realtek High Definition Audio.2. Select to "Update Driver Software".3. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".4. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".5. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.6. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio".7. Click "Next".8. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 9. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.
Test the headphone jack. If no noise with the native driver then it is a software problem that might be helped with a future Realtek revision. If still getting noise with the native driver, it might be a hardware problem. I can't think of a good specific test to confirm it, but you could report the issue to tech support.
Reverse the names in steps 1 and 6 to get back the Realtek driver.

My desktop system is pretty stable, runs well, never crashes.
Well, that is, almost never. I get a blue screen whenever I plug/unplug my headphones.

Has anybody ever heard of this one before?

I've just bought a XPS 15, and today I realised that when I plug in headphone into the headphone jack, buzzing noise emits, and renders the headphone useless. Laptop speakers works fine, just the issue with the headphone jack. 
I've tried updating the drivers to no avail. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Here's the deal. I'm using an Acer TravelMate 2480, running Windows XP SP2, with Realtek High Definition Audio drivers installed. I've had this issue before, and cannot remember how I resolved it - I've tried reinstalling the drivers, but no dice.

The issue is this: The speakers work fine, but the headphone output is nonexistent. This happened today; they were working fine yesterday. It seems to have happened after restarting my laptop, after a failed restore from sleep that was more than likely caused by having too much stuff open in Firefox when I closed the lid (I checked before closing it, the load was approximately 150 megs; I can give further details as needed). When I plug in the 'phones, there is a delay of about two seconds, then... nothing. Output from the speakers stops, but there is no sound from the 'phones.

The headphones in question work perfectly well with both of my MP3 players, so I know they haven't died. And, as I said before, this isn't the first time. Could it possibly be the jack going bad, and if so, how would I go about replacing it? Any input would be most appreciated.

Edit to above: The only driver reporting a problem in Device Manager is modem audio.

Hey everyone! Sorry to post another question, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere, unfortunately :(
As you can see by the title, I have a problem with my headphone jack. What happens, is whenever I plug in my earphones (I've tried using a couple different pairs, the problem still persisted) I automatically get that blue screen with a sad face, that says that Windows ran into a problem and that it has to restart. What I wanted to ask of you, is there a way to fix this? I'd really appreciate any insight onto this problem, and if you can help me figure it out, it would be much appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to read this :)

edit; Probably should have made it clear that this problem started happening a few days ago, it was fine beforehand!

Hi guys. I have a problem with my "just over 1 year old" HP notebook (cnx9005).

My headphone jack appears to be faulty because when I insert ANY headphones/speakers, sound only comes from the left side.

When I wiggle the wire a lot, then I get stereo sound, but as soon as I let go it goes one sided again. How frustrating.

This is a problem that has been getting worse and worse over time with more and more wiggling required to get stereo sound as time goes by. Is this problem repairable?

I should add that the speakers on the laptop itself do not suffer from this problem. ONLY when external speakers/headphones are connected to the jack does this occur.

The worst thing is that as it's a month over a year old, it's also a month out of warranty. Do these things have a timer on them in which they can work perfectly fine as long as you have a guarantee, but blow up as soon as the guarantee's over? LOL

Perhaps i should consider buying a USB or PCMCIA sound card, probably cheaper than getting it repaired. I don't know! Help!

Thanks in advance.

The laptop doesn't register headphones frequently- occasionally 'unplugs' randomly, or if they're moved/knocked a little. I've tried updating the audio drivers and using different headphones and that's not helped at all. I figure it's probably a hardware issue and I need to send it off to be fixed, but I'd rather avoid having to do that if I could.

title says it, i downloaded the most recent version of the realteck drivers from toshibas site and i have no sound when plugging in headphones.

Answer:No sound from headphone jack

Did the headphone jack ever work? Is the headset you are using a known good headset?

If the unit is still under warranty, best to contact Toshiba. If its a hardware problem (and under warranty) only Toshiba can get it corrected.

yo,

In terms of troubleshooting desktop PCs, im alright

I've been given a laptop, and the headphone jack gives out intermittant sound at varying qualities and you can wiggle the jack.

Obviously, i think the jack needs to be reattached. Scale of difficulty? and any tips on dismantling laptops down to the board.

i'm not new to the soldering iron, but i'm no pro.

Depends on if the jacks are attached directly to the board or if they're on a separate card.

Varies from laptop-to-laptop. Just make sure you remember where all your screws went originally (using an ice-cube tray, and labeling the screw trays are a good idea.. making a rough sketch of the bottom of the laptop and where all the screws go is sometimes not a bad idea either). You can try to find a service manual online for the laptop as well, and see if it gives diagrams / instructions on how to tear it all the way down.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC. Over the past few months my headphone jack has not been working properly. It started off with the headphones having to be held in a certain place to prevent sound coming out of the speakers at the same time as the headphones (I have tried every pair of headphones i own) . Over time, this has been getting worse and now, sound comes out of the speakers regardless of whether i have any heaphones plugged in. The headphone jack is really wobbly and i'm assuming i'll need to take my pc to a repair shop?Thanks in advance

I updated to Windows 8 today, and everything seemed to be going well until I tried playing music through my headphones. They worked fine on my iPhone, but once I plugged them into my laptop, no sound came out.

I ran windows updates today.

Answer:Headphone Jack Not Working

It looks like, with the "High Definition Audio Device" that you only have the basic function Windows installed sound drivers.

Try installing the PC Vendor's sound driver. Same way for HDMI install the Video Card vendor's drivers.

I am using an Acer S7-191 with Windows 8.1, I had the system reinstalled with Windows 8 and updated to 8.1 after an windows update crashed the original system. The problem is I cannot plug headphone to playback. In playback devices, there are only Speaker and Digital Audio HDMI even after I chose to display all disconnected and disabled device. Here are what I have tried:Install all recommended driver on Acer's websteInstall all Windows updatesInstall and reinstall Realtek software and driver on Acer's website (6.0.1.7027 W81 64)Update driver in device managerDisable front panel jack detection in Realtek software provided by Acer (after that no "2nd Output" tab appeared)Check if there is any device unrecognized or with warning mark, none foundChange a headphone to try the connectorUse Realtek official universal software instead of Acer'sI am running out of solutions, anything else I can try before I have to send the unit back? In device manager:  Thanks. 

Answer:S7-191 Headphone Jack not Working

I do apologize to say but it sounds like you have gone through all the troubleshooting I could recommend witout having the system sent in for repair. If the jack is not working when you connect your headphones and they do not show up in the Playback tab, then I would recommend contacting technical support in your region for repair options.
