Windows 7: Sound Plays in Headphones in front jack but ext speakers do not work

Sound Plays in Headphones in front jack but ext speakers do not work

Good Evening Friends,

I have had this problem for a long while now but essentially I am forced to use a headphone setup for my desktop but would really like to use external speakers instead of this current set up. What is confusing me is that these external speakers worked for a good long while then stopped working suddenly. Furthermore I switched monitors to a HP w2207 and was wondering if that had anything to do with it. I have updated Realtek to the current drivers and the premise remains the same. Any help would be much appreciated.


CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHZ
RAM: 4.00 GB Ram
System Type: 64 bit Operating system Windows 7
GPU: NVIDIA 660 GTX

Right click the small speaker in the lower right corner of your task bar. Click Playback devices. Is there a device shown with a green checkmark? Post an image of that window, if you can. (Use Windows Snipping Tool then attach the image using the Paperclip icon in the message text header.)

Forgot to mention: When you plug headphones into the front jack, the default action is to turn off the external speakers so that Windows action is normal.
