Just so you know, Ken and I aren't the only members of this site. We have 200+ active, knowledgeable members, many of which I'm sure can figure out your problem. Ken and I just roam the Crashes section.

Have you tried a different set of headphones? Have you tried those headphones in another machine?

try Jon suggestion to see if the problems come from the headphone itself and if you have volume control on your headphone. try maxed it up.
You're using realtek. Go to realtek control panel, speakers tab, note upper right corner link for advanced settings, and try disabling front jack detection.

Feel free to ask

Alright i think its the headphones that are broken, i tried a different pair and they work fine. I tried the broken ones on the other computer and they still have extremely low volume.

actually when you're facing some hardware failure like monitor,headphone,etc. It's preferable for you to test it out on the computer to detect either the issues come from the hardware itself or from within you computer. nevertheless, glad you solved your problem .cheers

Volume extremely low, found no fix via google
EDIT: I just found out that this is most likely because my driver thinks the speakers are plugged in and lowers the sound. I tried on another computer, once in the speaker jack (it was low), then in the headphone jack (it was high). Would it work if I made the speaker jack a headphone jack by...

Low volume when using headphones
Greetings, I recently purchased a pair of Phillips SHP2500 headphones. I do not have a headphone jack available on the speakers, so I plugged them directly into the sound card. Problem is, the volume is relatively low even when everything's maxed out. This might occur because of the fact that I...
