    Headphones and speakers playing at the same time?


    When I plug in my headphones, my speakers just keep on playing(although the headphones also play the audio). The headphones won't show up under audio devices, and I've tried two different sets of headphones.

    Does anyone know how to stop this? It was working fine yesterday....

    I use Windows 7.

    Hello OctoberOwl and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Since everything was working fine yesterday I'd try using system restore to return my computer to a date/time prior to when the audio problem first started.

    System Restore

    If system restore doesn't help you might have to go into control panel > sounds to see what your default settings are. There are several previous forum threads that provide possible solutions. For example:

    Speakers and headphones play at the same time?

    Selecting headphones or speakers as default

    And a couple of threads from the Microsoft Answers forum:

    I rolled back to an earlier driver. Worked for me it seems.
