Answer: Why is my plastic dust plug charm putting my phone into headphone mode?

The dust plug is probably a bit too long and opening the phone jack contacts.

Answer:headphone jack broken off in headphone plug in

TOMMYSS,
If you purchased complete care from Dell you can call into Dell Alienware Support at 1 (877) 330-9732. 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. Just make sure that it is unplugged before attempting to remove it.

Does your phone have that too? Im worried that mine might be the only one because I haven't seen a single complaint about it. It's irritating sometimes. I pick the sides with a piece of thin paper to take the dust out. Am I the only one????

Answer:On the Nokia Lumia 630 there is gap around the phone small enough for dust to lodge in, does anyone else's phone have this problem?

That does sound pretty original as an issue.
Make sure the cover is seated properly. You could also try getting a replacement cover online. Search eBay and Amazon for them. It would be a chance to change color as well.

I made a recover on it. Now I can't find my headphone sound volume any more and they also don't work anymore.

My soundcard is the Realtek HD.

Please help.

Answer:Satellite L40-14N - I can't use headphone and mic plug-in

Do you see a speaker icon in the System Tray?

Have you checked if the volume is muted?

Try muting then unmuting the Main Volume.

If you cannot see the Realtek Sound Card in Device Manager, download the Realtek drivers from the Toshiba Website.

Every time I take out my phone from my pocket, there's a lot of dust particles stuck on it and I have to wipe it regularly. Are the phone screens made such that dust just adheres to it or is it to do with something else?
I've seen this with lumia 1020 (amoled screen) and lumia 540 (lcd screen)
I also see this on my surface 3 but not as much

Answer:Dust affinity for phone screens

I used to do that but for work purposes I had to get a holster clip for it. It always got hot in my pocket, and heat kills battery life. Plus the lint and stuff gets in the small speakers and earpiece holes.

Hi guys

I got rid of my mic. and headphone jacks on the front of my PC. My sound is hooked up from the back of my PC(onboard sound) to my stereo receiver.

When I have the mic. and headphone jacks unplugged from my mobo, I get a horrible buzzing sound without any PC sound(music and what-not) from my stereo even when my PC is off.

I modded my case and there is no longer a spot to put the jacks except for lying on the bottom of my PC case, Where they are now so my sound works.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of the mic/headphone jacks and still have the sound work on my PC? Can I make a jumper out of the mic/headphone mobo plug or get a sound card to fix the problem?

I just got a Hp Envy laptop and I can't plug my headphones into the headphone jack.  I've never plugged them in before which is why I'm confused.    Right now, when I try to plug my apple headphpones in, only a small part goess in and then they don't go any further.  I think there may be something stuck inside the jack.  It looks like there may be a small clear ball in there, but I've never seen it before.  Am I just using the wrong type of headphones? Or is the ball supposed to be there and I'm supposed to take it out somehow? ANd if there actuallly is something stuck in there, any suggestions as to how to take it out?  Thanks in advanced!  

Answer:Headphones won't plug into headphone jack

Hello @mkoo , Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand you're unable to connect headphones to your notebook. There shouldn't be anything you need to remove from the port. Some models have multiple output ports so make sure the port you're connecting to has the following label:  If the port has that label and you're using standard headphones with a 1/8" connector (standard size for most headphones) there shouldn't be anything stopping it from going in all the way. Check the connection on the headphones and tell me if it has 2 or 3 rings on it like this: As you can see the left jack has 3 rings and the right has only 2. Lastly, try your headphones in another PC, iPod, or audio device to make sure the headphone jack is correct. If it works in everything else there is most likely something blocking the jack or you are connecting it to the wrong port. Let me know if this helps.

N.B : both the right and left sides work well in my mobile when i plug them all the way
i tried another headphones that works well on other devices and i had the same issue
can you help
thanks in advance

Answer:headphone works only when i partially plug it

That's usually a jack problem on the laptop or plug problem on the headphones. Can try blowing out the jack with a can of air. I have even applied rubbing alcohol to the headphone plug before and inserted it a few times. Laptop off of course.

Hello, I have had my laptop for a number of years. But there is one question that I cannot find the answer too. How the hell do you plug in headphones when the headphone jack (Or whatever it's called is stuck or doesn't want to move (Or something like that)? I've tried plugging in my headphones, but whatever that is, won't budge. I should also mention here that my usb port is all burnt out, so I can't use those either. But my laptop is good working order otherwise.

Hello!

I'm trying to get my headphones/speakers working again.

It worked well until a week and when I tried to plug the speakers in yesterday there was no sound (same is true for several headphones...)

I tried to update the driver (realtek), I looked into the configurations, but as my meager knowledge it seems all fine, I tried to follow the instructions from several other forums, but still silence... (the PC speakers do work though).

Then I tried to restore the system, but unfortunately the only restore point it gives me for this months is yesterday afternoon; at that point I had already tired to update the driver, etc. and after restoring it to that point the headphone plug is still not working.

For some reason it doesn't go back to the previous months (the last time I used my headphones was on the 6th of Dec.) - is there any explanation for that, or do I have to access previous restore points via another path?

Please let me know your thoughts!!

Thanks a lot in advance!

Answer:[SOLVED] Headphone plug stopped working

Hello Regenwurm and welcome to TSF,

It is possible that the headphone jack is physically damaged or not making proper contact. It is quite hard to tell from looking in from the outside.

First thing I would like you to do is try a clean boot.

Here is the Microsoft support article on configuring XP clean boot.

How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state

Once you have performed the clean boot, attempt to use your headphones again.

Hey so heres the deal,I have a Lenovo Y550P and i never had a sound problem but minutes ago i realized that when i plugged the headphones in the sound quality dropped very very low, what should i do, cause i always use the laptop with headphones plugged, please please help meeeeeeeeeeee, its not a problem with the headphones cause i tried several ones and they all have the same problemmm, Thanks very much, Marc

Answer:When i plug my headphone sound quality drops

Define "very very low" quality. Is it crackling? Static? Signal loss?Is the quality ok with just the laptop speakers?With the headphones plugged in, try (very gently) rotating the plug in the jack. Does it crackle or change when you do this?If you've tried more than one pair of headphones, it's possible the jack itself is damaged. This can happen over time. It can also happen if the plug its knocked too hard while plugged in, causing it to damage the jack. Certainly wouldn't be the first time I've seen that with a laptop.

Never had a problem. We got razors for our phones, and we can get the songs on it . My daughter wanted to be different and get the new 'crzer" and we can NOT get songs on hers through her usb cable. We get an error that says cannot play file. I'm sure it's something totally easy and stupid that we are doing. I looked at both books, and found nothing. I know the songs are in the wma (??) because my daughters mp3 player does both, and the way that held the most songs are the way we did it.

 recently bought a Dell latitude E6420 i5-2520M 8GB and I am experiencing a very annoying issue with the speakers.
The sound coming from the speakers worked until I plugged in the headphones jack into the computer for the first time - when I unplugged the headphones internal speakers stop to work completely.
What I have tried so far with no success:

Uninstall and reinstall windows audio/sound drivers
Tried Realtek drivers
Disabled headphones
Recovery and reinstall Windows 10

What is strange is that every time I uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers the speakers start to work again until i plug the jack of the headphones and again speakers stop to work. Any Idea?
Please let me know what you need to know about my computer to better understand the problem and I will amend the question accordingly.
Thanks!

Hi all i just bought some dust off computer cleaner for my mouse, my mouse had lots of dust in it so i thought this would be great, I thought it was just canned air but now reading on the internet Ive heard people have died from it, it accidently sort of sprayed me in the face, my eyes started burning alittle, i went and flushed out my face and eyes with water like the label told me too. but is it safe to use my mouse with that stuff sprayed all over it? I plugged in a different mouse for now. Please reply Im very worried.

Answer:Computer dust cleaner for cleaning dust out of mouse good idea?

The only way that you can die from that stuff is if you intentionally inhale it. People inhale duster to get high. Some unfortunate people have died from it because it can freeze your lungs. Your mouse should be fine. Also, if you're using a PS/2 mouse, turn the computer off before you plug it back in.

Trying to put my parents' PC into Standby mode but the only thing that was closing down was the monitor. What am I doing wrong?Is it okay to leave the PC on Standby all day and then turn off the PC at night?Could someone please tell me the difference between Standby and Hibernate - in very simple terms - and how do you set it up to Hibernaye?

Answer:Putting PC Into Standby Mode

Standby continues to supply power to RAM and certain other system components with the aim of keeping your Windows session in memory. It powers up quickly.Hibernation saves the contents of RAM to a portion of the HDD with some appended data, then shuts down everything completely. To all intents and purposes, it is the same as a shutdown, bar the fact that Windows cannot perform the tasks that it normally performs at shutdown. It boots up quite quickly.

I recently purchased a Sony Bravia XBR55X900E tv and I connect my pc to it via HDMI.  Here's is my setup:

Dell XPS 8700 connects to HDMI 2 on Sony TV.
My TV receiver connects to HDMI 1 on Sony TV.
My Sony AVR connects to HDMI 3 on Sony TV, strictly for audio purposes (ARC).
Logitech Harmony one universal remote.

My issue is this:  Whenever I switch between activites (example PC to watching TV), after the TV switches to HDMI 1 from HDMI 2, this puts my Dell into sleep / standby mode.  If I press the power button, it lights up like normal.  If I go back to the PC activity, again once the TV switches from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2, the computer again goes into this "sleep" mode and I again have to press the power button to take it out of it.
All of my pc settings are set to NEVER with respect to monitor or PC going to sleep / standby mode.  Prior to this TV I had my pc connected to an older plasma TV and this never happened.
I contacted Sony to see if it something with their Bravia sync but the person said that everything looked good from the TV's end.
I'm hoping that someone has come across this and can steer me in the right direction as it is really frustrating and I don't know what else to try.

I just got a brand new laptop with Windows Hello. It's very useful for logging in, but my laptop now goes to sleep every time I leave my desk. The red light next to the infrared camera blinks often when I'm using my laptop (which is also pretty annoying), and then if I get up, even for a few minutes (to grab a snack, notebook, etc.) my laptop goes to sleep. I'm pretty computer illiterate, but I suspect that the camera is still looking for me while I'm using my computer and then decides my laptop needs to sleep when it doesn't see my face anymore. Is there any way to change this? I like not having to use a password, but the red light and going to sleep is annoying, especially since I tend to get up from my desk a lot just to stretch. It also seems like having the camera on all the time would drain the battery pretty quickly. Am I way off base here?

Hi, so I hope you guys can help me with this. I want to buy a mini usb to headphone jack adapter like the one above for my cell phone. They say that that one is for Motorola phones. My phone is a Toshiba Portege G710. It has a mini usb port and mini usb headphones work with it. But will this adapter work even though they say it's for Motorola? In other words:
Are the connectors used for audio the same on all USB plugs?
(After all, it's called "Universal Serial Bus")

Thanks for replying, I'd really appreciate it.
 

Answer:mini usb to headphone jack adapter compatible with every cell phone?

even though it says USB, when it comes to cell phones they are not wired all the same. I would look for an adapter made specificall for Toshiba Cell phones. The manufacturer of the one that lists it is for Motorola Phone may also manufacture one for your phone.

my friend (honest)rang me to say he got a splitter for his bt socket plugged phone in and when he plugs modem lead into splitter and pc the phone rings,this is the first time he has tried to connect any pc to line for internet use,i know the pc is ok it is win 98se with lucent win modem fitted,any ideas?

Answer:plug modem in and phone rings.

How many other items (fax machines, phones etc ) has he got on that line.There is a limit of RENs on a line. Every item has a REN value (look in the manual or one the base for the REN value). It the total REN value on the line exceeds 4 it can cause problems like this.Also could be a faulty splitter.

I know it is a simple fix but I do not know it. The phone line unplugged and I don't know where to put it back in. The phone isn't working but I have cable tv and computer. Where do I put it back in?

Into the back of the computer? The router? or the modem?

not sure what your "phone unplugged" message is from since it appears you have cable internet. possible you installed drivers specific to dialup and changed your connection settings in IE Options or whatever browser you're using?

i have cable internet connected via CAT5 cable into ethernet port (they're bigger than the phone ports) in the tower & cable modem (won't have a phone port). i use Firefox and Tools > Options > Advanced > Network tab > Connection Settings, only "no proxy" is checked (may be different based on your particular ISP).

in IE8, Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN Settings, nothing is checked. again, yours may be different depending on your ISP. if you had a connection problem recently, using the Setup button isn't what you needed; you need to get rid of anything in Dial-up and Virtual Private Network. may solve that message problem.

I have a Lumia 920 which is running 8.1 Update 1 with the Cyan update.
A couple of days ago I noticed that when using the volume rocker, the slider said "headphones" and not the usual notifications/apps. I tried checking for any obstructions in the socket, plugging in headphones and unplugging and it still wont come off headphone mode. I have tried soft and hard resets and still no joy. Also did a full restore using the restore tool and was the same even before I installed update 1.
What is interesting is that I cant hear anything through the earpiece if making a call and no sound from media apps or videos. BUT all my notifications - text etc, sound as normal.

Okay so this was hard to title so I'm sorry if it wasn't very accurate. So I am looking into replacing my families home modem (Arris TM722 leased by Comcast) with the Arris SURFboard SB6190. At first when looking into this I believed we didn't have a Comcast phone line (because we use Frontier as our phone provider), however I recently was made aware that we actually do have a Comcast phone line because it was part of a bundle to make our Internet + TV service cheaper. Now I am currently looking into if we can remove the phone from our bundle and save any money from Comcast.

However assuming (as I do) that we either can't or it won't save us any money, is there any way I can buy that SB6190 and some sort of adapter or something so I can still have our Comcast phone setup and functioning? Or am I stuck with the only option of instead buying the Arris TM822G or the Arris TG862G?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Do adapters exist so I can plug in a phone to my modem?

Pretty sure there is no adapter you can use.

However, since you are looking to get rid of the comcast phone to save money, you may want to look into getting a magic jack.

$35 a year for unlimited local and long distance calling and you just use a regular phone with it. And the magic jack is also on sale right now.. so you effectively get the magic jack for free.

I just hooked my PS3 up to my A700 using the AV inputs. The video works fine, and the audio works fine over the built-in speakers, but when I plug my headphones into the A700, all sound stops. I can't get any sound from the headphones or the speakers. The headphones work when the computer is in PC mode, so I know that's not the problem. Any suggestions?

So I am not getting any audio through my speakers anymore this happened after I unplugged my headphones but it doesn't disable that they are unplugged I open my Realtek HD Audio Manager and it shows that the front jack has headphones in when they indeed aren't.
I can plug in my USB headset/mic and get sound through there due to it coming up as its own device so its something to do with my speakers in headphone mode.
Also I have tried restarts and shutdowns with and without the headphones in to try and get it to reset whatever happened with no success so any ideas?

Answer:Speakers stuck in headphone mode

Try uninstalling/reinstalling the sound and see if that resets it. Remove the USB headset/mic so it's not interferring or conflicting with the next steps. Go to the Device Manager and RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound device and then LEFT click on the device and click "uninstall" DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart (reboot) the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the RealTek sound.

If you disable USB Selective Suspending and uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power', your MP3 shouldn't have any problems. Perhaps double check witch device you unchecked.

I received an Arris TG862 modem from Time Warner Cable quite some time ago and have generally avoided it until now. I had always assumed that the TG862 was already in bridge mode and that I was only using my NetGear R6300 router for wireless, firewall etc. Recently, I was trying to open ports through my R6300, but no matter what they would always remain closed.

Sometime later, I realized that my Arris modem was most likely to blame, so I turned off both its firewall and wireless and switched it over to bridge mode. After restarting the modem, I am unable to connect to the internet. I can still connect to both my router and my modem's login page via the cord that goes from my modem -> router -> computer, but my router is not getting anything. I tried restarting my router as well, but that does not seem to help my situation. In my router's login page, it clearly tells me that the router is receiving no internet from the modem.

For now, I've factory reset'd the modem and the internet connection is fine but I still need to put the modem in bridge mode.

Thanks!

Answer:after putting vista into safe mode it will no longer opn java script or flash players

Unless you actually made some changes to the configuration, things should have returned to normal once you rebooted from Safe Mode.

Vista's "System Restore" would probably be the quickest fix for this and you will lose nothing by doing it.

However if you are using Internet Explorer, you might want to go to Tools > Add-Ons and make sure that all the Adobe Flash stuff there is present and enabled.

Also in Internet Options > Security Settings > Custom you can reset all settings there to their defaults.

Finally if you are using a 3rd party firewall -- some of these scripts can be blocked by their configurations.

any ideas on what i have to do .. im just not sure what the problem is and i would like to have my voip and alarm working on the phone lines as well as my adsl
thanks if anyone can help me

 

Answer:Why do i lose my adsl connection when i plug in the phone line of my alarm of my voip

I think you're going to find that the alarm system is the sticking point here. DSL/ADSL requires high frequencies to be transmitted over the phone lines, and the side trip into the alarm panel and back is probably attenuating the signals. I think you need to talk to the alarm company and have them resolve the issue.

The VoIP issue is probably a DSL filter issue. You may need to improve your wiring and split the alarm off after the DSL signal. The easiest way to do this would be a DSL splitter, and connect the alarm to the analog output of the splitter. I'm also a big confused about the VoIP, that would normally be connected after your DSL modem, not to a separate phone line.

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco service entrance. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand.

Recently, while playing unreal tournament, I realize there was no sound coming out of the speaker once I unplugged my headphones. I restarted thinking that it would fix the problem, but that didn't help, so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver from realtek, no good either. Finally I deicided to reformat my computer using the recovery partition. Reassuring myself that this will definitely solve the problem I was shock and confuse as to why no sound came out of the speaker after the recovery. After going to the Realtek sound control panel I realize that the computer thinks or detected that a headphone was plugged in when clearly it wasn't. The sound does work with the headphone in and I am sure the speaker is not damaged because the POST sound, "boommmmm", comes during bootup. I really don't understand what is going on, and I already reformatted the harddrive 2 times.

I have read that the problem can be temporarily solve by replacing the motherboard, but after about a week or two, the same problem will arise. I have also read that other brands including HP, DELL and Sony has similar problems.

I can live without the speakers but I am not sure if further problems will persist with this laptop, since its only been month that I have purchased it.

Thanks for many reply/help.

Sound volume up on Windows
Sound volume up in the game that you are using
(That might be it)

I've searched the forum as best I could and didn't find this issue being addressed. So, sometimes I listen to music with the headphones or even after a Skype call, I leave the headphone jack plugged in. If I put the laptop to sleep and wake it back up, unplugging the headphones will not return my sound setting back to the integrated speakers; I can only hear any sound if I plug the headphones back. I tried logging off and on again: no change. I tried to disable and re-enable "Realtek High Definition Audio" in Device Manager: no change. Uninstalling and re-installing it wouldn't be a proper solution if it had to be done all the time. The only thing that returns it back to normal is turning it off and on again... typical I.T. solution. Was there a driver update to fix this? Speaking of driver updates, I assume I can't find any BIOS update or any driver updates for the ideaPad due to the Sandy Bridge recall?? UPDATE: Sorry... found the consumer support lenovo sub domain site which is different from the IBM one... argh..

I recently noticed that I could not access any of my plub and play USB devices on my Windows 7 computer. I just also noticed that when I reboot, I know get a DOS message momentarily that says I am in IDE mode and my plug and play devices cannot be supported. It also provides me with the option to go to SATA by pressing "Y" while in DOS mode. There is a timer which times out and the it loads Win7.

I am not really sure what is going on.

1) Given that I used to be able to access my plug an play devices (exernal hard drives) have I somehow changed my BIOS settings?

2) Should I be clicking on "Y" while in DOS? Note I tried this and nothing happened.

3) Should I go directly into my BIOS and make the change. If so how?

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro - Does Plug in - Not Charging on Conversation Mode harm the battery?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Yes, when the charge level reaches 60% and you receive that message it means the battery is no longer receiving a charge and the laptop is being powered by the AC adapter.
 
No, using conservation mode will actually extend the health of your battery which means the battery will have a longer life time.   It is the continually charging when the battery's charge level reaches 100% level that will shorten the life of the battery.

I have a T420 that sits in a dock, 24x7 and never goes into sleep mode (I need to be able to access it around the clock). However, I don't need the external monitor on all the time, that just eats power. I have the notebook set up to shut the monitor down after 10 minutes.  But as soon as that happens, I get the plug and play beeps starting. It is like someone is continually plugging and unplugging a USB key.   The monitor is an Emprex 20" LCD that is connected by a DVI cable to the dock.  The driver (Win7 64bit) is "generic pnp driver, there is no driver from the company. If I take the monitor out of the dock and plug in the 15-pin D-sub to the monitor, it sleeps and I never hear a sound. Also, if the system starts beeping with the monitor in sleep mode, if I hit the power button on the monitor and turn it off fully, the beeping stops, so this is definitely tied to the monitor, not another device. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this issue? Right now I have to shut the speakers off when I am stepping away from the computer.

Dear All,

No sound on my laptop's built-in speakers and headphone on Tecra A8 series, even while booting the system sound is not there. while u connect headphone and speakers thru USB port it works. All other operations r normal.

My laptop runs on windows xp sp2, all drivers are installed, even I tried reinstalling the sound drivers(realtek) from toshiba website, doesn't help. please can anyone help in this regard.

Regards,
Riyaz

Answer:Tecra A8 No Sound on internal speakers & headphone but USB headphone works

Did you downgrade to XP or upgrade to Vista? Mute can get stuck if an OS has been changed.

Go into the Windows Volume Control, then click MUTE. Click MUTE again to unmute.

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. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

Whenever I plug in my headphones into the jack, I no longer get a notification telling me my headphones are plugged in and Audio comes out of both the Headphones and the laptop speakers. This happend recently and didn't happen before. I have tried multiple headphones, all to the same effect. I am thinking this is a hardware issue. Does anybody have any solutions to fix? 

Answer:Both Speakers and Headphone play sound when headphone is plugged into Jack

Dear AlvinLee
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Method A:
1.  Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2.  Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
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
 
Thanks
Alaa

I have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

Answer:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

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.

Any help appreci... Read more

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

Hey there, I made a post a few days ago about an issue with my headphones with Windows 10, and couldn't pin down the issue.

Well, recently I figured it out.

My issue is that after my computer goes to sleep, when I power it back on, there will be no output from the headphone jack no matter what. This doesn't happen in Linux or Windows 8.1, just Windows 10.

I've tried many different drivers and a different BIOS, and no fix.

Restarting the computer doesnt rememdy the issue, but shutting it down and then booting it again does.

Has anyone heard of this issue before? Is there any solution to it?
