Windows 7: normal speakers sound but low in headphones

normal speakers sound but low in headphones

hi everybody :)

I recently bought Acer Aspire 4738 i5 (running 7 ultimate 32bit) and I love it so far. however there's a problem with sound when I plug in the headphone.

when I play it through the build-in speakers the sound is great and actually loud , I've tried another headphones (bought three already :/ ) and still the same thing.

updated the drive, checked the volume to max, tried about everything i could find but nothing seems to work.

I'm starting to think this is an OS issue,
Plz help, headphones are something I can't live without !

Check in the "Levels" tab in the Properties of the headphones.

I can only suspect a bad contact. As you can see, mine shows up properly. Maybe the 3.5mm plug or port is bad and that is the root cause of the problem. Try turning and jiggling it a bit - no force though.

I would love to help you find the problem, but I am out of ideas. Let it rest for a bit. Maybe another member knows better. Wgat really disturbs me is that the headphones do not show up in Playback Devices.

Sound out of Speakers, not headphones
On my brand new Asus laptop, I have not been able to figure out how to get sound out of my headphones when I plug them in. On my old laptop, if I plugged in the headset, sound went there automatically. Not on the new computer. The headset I have has a USB plug. I was able to get sound out of them...
