Hi.

I don't know if Im posting this issue in the right forum.. My problem is that when I connect my earphones in the earphones hole on my sony vaio laptop, I do hear the sound through the earphones, but it also comes from the laptop's inbuilt speakers.

When I right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray, and then go to playback devices, all I find is speaker/HP (Realtek High Definition Audio).

Don't know what's wrong. Please help!

Go to the Windows sound speaker icon in the notifcation area. Right click on it. Select playback devices. Located headphones high light it. Select properties.

Toward the button "Device Usage" select "Use this device"

If there is no headphones listed right click in the area under Speakers and select "Show Disconnected Devices" and "Disabled Devices"

The 'show disconnected devices' and 'show disabled devices' options are already selected but my headphones are still not listed in playback devices. :(

I checked that video in your earlier post. But it's about Windows 7, and I have Windows Vista.

How do I know if the jack port is damaged and how can I repair it?

I tried connecting the speakers to the port. The sound is still coming from the laptop's speakers as well as from the speakers that I connected. :(

Ok then there has to be a way to adjust this
Check to see if your headphones are set to be used as the default *Communication* device instead of the default device, or if both devices are set to default. If so, make the headphones default, so that Windows will use them only when they are plugged in.





Check with volume settings.





1. Right click on the speaker icon in taskbar and select volume control options.



2. put a check mark on "All devices currently playing sound".



3. Make sure you have "The default communication device unchecked".



4. place a check mark on both speakers and headphones.

When I connect the headphones, there isn't any 'headphones' tab visible in playback devices.

Also, there is no volume control option when I right click the speaker tab. There's only Open Volume Mixer, Playback devices, Recording devices and Sounds.

Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click the devmgmt.msc icon in the search results and choose to Run as Administrator. In the Device Manager, do you have any devices with yellow marks? If so, these devices need to have drivers installed. Download the Chipset and the Audio and any other drivers you require for your computer model.
