Windows 7: Speakers stuck in headphone mode

Speakers stuck in headphone mode

So I am not getting any audio through my speakers anymore this happened after I unplugged my headphones but it doesn't disable that they are unplugged I open my Realtek HD Audio Manager and it shows that the front jack has headphones in when they indeed aren't.
I can plug in my USB headset/mic and get sound through there due to it coming up as its own device so its something to do with my speakers in headphone mode.
Also I have tried restarts and shutdowns with and without the headphones in to try and get it to reset whatever happened with no success so any ideas?

Try uninstalling/reinstalling the sound and see if that resets it. Remove the USB headset/mic so it's not interferring or conflicting with the next steps. Go to the Device Manager and RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound device and then LEFT click on the device and click "uninstall" DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart (reboot) the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the RealTek sound.

Yes I have the latest Realtek driver. Im thinking I need to disable the input jacks then re-enable them or something along those lines. I don't know how to do that though.

Go to the Realtek device advanced settings.
You should see two Playback Device options.
See if either of those resolve the issue.

You may want to unplug the USB device temporarily and uninstall any drivers associated with it. I suspect there's some type of conflict between it and the onboard audio device.

the headphones are in the input jack not USB that is a separate pair that works properly. Also I have already tried that and nothing is plugged into it right now.

Don't know much about usb headsets, but try going into BIOS, disable the sound card, start up windows, and then shut down, and re-enable the card. Once you start up it should reset all settings as it will redetect the card and reapply the drivers. Uninstalling driver and reinstalling may also be a go after you disable the card in bios. But only AFTER you disable it. Windows comes with it's own realtek generic driver embeded into it, so even after uninstall, if the card is still enabled in the system, it may not properly reset it. Hope this helps.
