Windows 7: System cannot recognize headphones and microphone

27 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
System cannot recognize headphones and microphone


I have already founf a lot of silimar topics here and anywehere in the Internet, but I tried a lot of solutions and none of them worked... here we go.

I was reinstalling system and after intalling all drivers, programs etc. I noticed that there is a problem with my headphones and microphone. When I put the plugs in, built-in speakers are becoming silent - as same as headphones (same story with microphone). It's an introduction, there are some pics and facts about the problem:

0. Laptop Asus, OS Windows 7 64mbit

1. I've got Realtek HD Audio and I have already installed last version of drivers from producer's site (2.73). It's the onlyone sound driver I have now. (I also checked it in registry HLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\)

2. Sockets and items works, I've checked it on another OS, which is installed on my computer.

3. Registry.
Pin19 exists from the same begining, as soon as I have installed the driver.
Pin18 showed when I put microphone plug in.
Pin21 showed when I put headphones plug in.

4. Some examples:
- music is playing, headphones are in and... I can't hear anything from speakers nor headphones.

Does anyone know what should I do? Please, help me, I've already spent so many hours trying to solve it on my own...
