  1. I've been finding a solution for days now and I still haven't found for this. I am using windows 7. I can clearly hear music from my 2 speakers, but when I plug my headphones into the front jack sound! in the playback devices,it shows my headphone is not plugged in!! The mic works fine. I have DL'd the latest realtek drivers and made sure all mute's are off but still nothing. If anyone knows how to fix this, you will be a better man than I. thank u in advance:)

    Was your PC built for you or did you buy it in a shop?

    If it was built for you, you might want to check that the front panel connectors are connected to the motherboard. I have seen many people forget to do this.

    Following on from this (not sure if Stranger007 is still about), my friend had this exact problem today.

    I solved it by opening the Realtek control panel, selecting the Jack Options button (looks like a folder on the right) and selected 'Disable jack detection'. This means that the devices are always on but you don't get the fore-mentioned problem.
