Speakers work fine but Headphones don't

I'm running Win 7 Pro. After installing the Realtek High Definition Audio update, my speakers work fine, but my headphones don't . Say's headphones are not plugged in. Apparently this was a problem in Vista as well. Anyone know a solution? Thanks.

Check the internal cabling between the front panel headphone/mic jacks and the motherboard connection for the HD front panel audio. Reseat the cable(s) (unplug then plug back in) at the motherboard end and at the front panel end.

That was the first thing I checked. It's got to be a settings or driver issue.

Im just going to point out the obvious Make sure your earphones aren't broken XD. Get another set of earphones and test them. If the second set works, but not the first one, thats obviously the earphones.

I ran a Linux Live CD and the headphones worked fine. It's obviously a bug in Win 7.

When you update the Realtek audio driver, the settings that you entered into the HD Audio Manager are not maintained between updates. You will have to re-enter this information. This includes things such as front panel jack assignments. It is not a bug in W7, and you cannot compare it with a Linux Live CD since that has its own drivers.
