Windows 7 Proffesional 32 bit
Problem with Realtek and headphones

Hello all. I have one annoying problem. I've Windows 7 Proffesional 32 bit, integrated audio card and Realtek ALC883, driver version I'm using speakers and headphones at once. In the back panel I've got splitter. I also got rear panel with jack output. When I plug headphones to splitter in the back panel they are playing much quietly than in the rear panel, because in the rear panel Realtek see the output like HEADPHONES, and into back like SPEAKERS. Is it possible to make Realtek see back output like HEADPHONES ? In Windows XP it was very simply, but now when I plug something into back panel I cant see any popup dialog window. Please help

I have my headphone amp plugged into the speakers jack on the rear of my Win 7 computer and it works just fine. The problem you are having may stem from using the speakers and headphones at the same time with a splitter because the way Win 7 is set up it will only allow 1 audio output at a time.
