IDT Audio HD Codec

Hi,

I cannot get any sound when i plug my headphones into the front jack.

The headphones work fine as the communications device (so i know they work) but i cannot set them as the default playback device.... the option is there but when i click it nothing happens.

The sound just keeps coming from the speakers

Any ideas???

Have you tried reinstalling the correct drivers? IDT is the current company that owns what used to be SigmaTel and if you have a "SigmaTel" integrated sound module some times the newer IDT drivers will not work or work correctly. As you have a Compaq PC, first stop would be HP/Compaq and check for a sound driver there for your specific model. If they do not have a Win 7 driver but have a Vista driver download and install that and see what happens as a first step.

There could also be a connection problem between the front panel and the motherboard for the headset jack connection. With the PC powered off, open the case and reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector for the front panel Audio.

I have tried both windows 7 and vista drivers but still no sound from headphones when i want to play a movie or game.

The connection for the jack is fine as i have sound from the headphones when using skype or ventrillo. It allows for the headphones to be the default communications device but not the default playback.... which is what i need.

I wonder if skype or ventrillo has the headphone option "captured" and won't allow other programs to use it? This sounds like what is happening.
