Im new to the forums, ... looked through a lot of threads for info on my problem. Cant find anything to help me. Figured maybe i can sign up and post my problem... hoping one of you smart guys might catch the answer. The short
: audio plays through back audio jack and front audio jack at the same time.
Would like for my computer to recognize that the front(headphones) is plugged in and stop playing sound through the speakers. (Late night computer usage) Details:
Using onboard sound.
Currently using Realtek Hd audio manager Version 126.96.36.19953
What i have tried:
(pretty much ripped a hole in google by searching every forum on the subject)
-Opened my computer to check if my front audio jacks are plugged in
-plugged in my headphones - no sound
-found in article about marking "disable front panel jack detection"
-sounds works through headphones, in front jack YAY
-now both speakers and headphones play sound.
-installed drivers from ECS website for my motherboard
-installed drivers from realtek.com latest
Nothing worked to control the sound coming from one device at a time. Weird things:
A lot of people have device advanced settings.
- in those options there should be an option where it says "mute rear output device, when front headphones are plugged in"
-i wish i had that option, but i dont get the advanced folder at all. Realtek hd audio manager advanced settings image by Alucard1475 on Photobucket
-another thing, when i conect my rear audio jack. i get a message that new device connected, i never get this when i connect or dissconnect my front jack
-one more thing i noticed that i found wierd. is that under
Contol panel/sound/playback devices ....... i only have speakers(realtek high definition audio) show up, no HEADPHONES.
-when i go into properties for the speakers i find that the jack information shows the front and back under the one speaker. Is that correct, shouldnt the jacks be seperated?
Sorry for the long read, i figured id included all my finding and research to help anyone who is trying to help me. Bottom Line:
I have sound coming out of both jacks (front & rear), would like to know how to make my headphones cancel out my speakers when plugged in. Or a desktop option to mute speakers and have headphones playing.
Thank you so much in advanced. If i missed anything please ask, ill try to answer right away
