Sound-Switching Devices

  1. I have vista....up until today i have always been able to switch sound between my speakers and headphones just by pluging the headphones in and out of the hardrive but after a windows update i had to reinstall drivers...now i am unable to switch between my speakers and headphones automatically


    my sound device manager asks for a deafult device and i can only choose the speakers or the headphones, but when I choose the speakers asdefault and try to plug in my headphones no sound comes out of my head sets

    is there any way to fix it so that when sound is coming from my speakers and i plug in my headset the speakers are muted and the sound transfers to the headset...just as i was able to do before

    thank you in advance and plz forgive me if this has already been covered.

    Did you reinstall the drivers and software for your sound controller?
