Windows 7 won't recognize headphones
I wondering if anyone could help me, when I'm playing a game on the pc I would like the sound to come from the speakers but use the front jack to plug in my headset and talk to friends on skype.
My problem is the sound from my game comes through my headset as well and it's very annoying! Also if someone else is on the pc and i'm on a skype call I have to ask them to mute the sound on the pc.
I have Realtek Hd Audio Manager installed and it recognizes the headset when I plug it in but in control panel under sound it doesn't,it thinks my headset is speakers.
I've searched and searched for a solution, apparently older versions of Realtek had better options for controlling jacks,the one I have even though it's all updated is very basic with no options to change any settings to do with jacks.
The annoying thing about this is this is a new pc and everything worked fine on my old pc so I know it can be done.

Since you have an Alienware system. Dell has a special users forum just for Alienware owners. Posting there, where there are people familiar with your PC would be the best place to go for help. I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum but not the Alienware section.
