Thanks for your help. But what do you mean by waiting "till someone shows up with the same setup."?

I have VIA HD Audio. Someone else should have 'Realtec'.

Check the link in this post & see if you can get to the settings there.

Thnaks for the link. However, the problem is that there isn't even any "advanced settings" option when I open Realtek Audio HD Manager

ok in the window that shows the realtek hd audio, right click and select show disabled devices. this should show your headphones, double click on the headphones and in the new window that appears select enable /apply /ok.
