Windows 7: Sounds still plays through speakers when headphones plugged in

Sounds still plays through speakers when headphones plugged in

Hi,

Did my first budget pc build and I feel really sick because of a problem!

I've grown tired trying to fix this on my own and i see this as my last resort.
My problem is that when i plug in my headphones to the front panel of my PC, the sound plays out of the speakers still.
What i want is for the speakers to cut out when i plug my headphones in.
Headphones work as on my laptop speakers cut out when i plug in the headphones!

I've gone through forums and stuff and the instructions/help they have does not cover mine.

Here are 4 printscreens of my problem:

Below is the printscreen of the Speaker properties. As you can see, it shows the front and rear port together.

Below is the window i get when i click on the folder icon (connector settings ) on realtek manager:

Below is when i click on the link 'device advanced settings':

Below is when i click on the speaker icon in taskbar and click on 'volume control options':

So many forums/help guides have the disabled rear panel option thing and among other things but i dont have them.
The audio driver i downloaded from the asus website with respect to my mobo.
I've tried to include everything and sorry if i've left anything out.
Will be checking constantly for replies so i can reply back!

Please guys/girls,

Is there a way to fix this? I'm 20 and i've had really crap headaches over this.
My temp fix is to remove my audio cable from the rear lime panel that goes to my monitor speakers.
I beg that you great people can fix this thorn in my side!!!!!

Please!

Thank you,

Daniel

ps. system spec i added when i registered, sorry my head hurts

Edit: i have uninstalled and re-installed the audio driver from the asus site many times.
my anti virus is kasperksy internet security 2012
edit:

i've alsso, gone into BIOS and put on HD and AC front panel and vice versa, however it does not change any of the settings.

(in realtek when i click on connector settings and click HD, i get pop saying "you've just unplugged device.... and the front panel fades. when i go back to ac, the front panel comes back.)

If your case doesn't have HD audio front inputs the modern Realtek drivers won't be able to detect when a connection is made and thus cannot mute the rear device.

I'll update again with the case front panel audio. the case I brought only came with one fron panel audio cable, if i remember correctly it was HD audio, but i'll confirm that later on.

thanks for the post though!

I dont think other drivers would work since HD audio is a completely different device. Every Realtek HD chip I've had has had an option in Connector Settings (The folder icon) to enable/disable Front Panel jack detection. I see yours doesn't so to be honest I'm not exactly sure what the deal is.

If your case is new (2009 or so) it should have HD audio ports. Usually the front ports have 2 connectors, one for HDA and another for AC97. You might check to make sure the right one (HD) is being used to connect to the motherboard.

The case i have is a cheap crap thing, came with no manual. ill check my front panel cables once more.
the mobo does support HD audo/AC so i dont get it. if i took a picture of the front panel connectors would it help?
Can anyone recommend a cheap case that takes micro atx boards and atx psu that has HD audio?

Personally I don't know how to tell what kind of connectors they are by visual inspection though there is probably a way.

As I'm away from my pc, i won't be able to look for the audio cable, but I'm sure, from memory, that may case only had one audio cable, which was named as HD Audio cable - I WILL TAKE a pic to confirm guys, i really want to fix this.

If i confirm that my case has only one audio cable, than i confirm that my case is sh and you know what?
