Windows 7: No sound when headset is plugged in

19 Jan 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

The sound in headphones worked up until yesterday, it stopped working today.
Now i am back to square one.. apparently that wasn't a good enough solution..
I should note that I did not install anything.

Please help!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I found a way to solve the problem, though I don't think its very good for the computer.

When I start the computer, there would be no sound in my headphones. but if i force shut down (holding the shut down external button on my laptop, not from windows) the computer and restart it, the headphones will work.

Is there any other way on how to fix this? This way of resolving the problem is extreme and I think it will ruin the computer in time.

Best I can tell you is to post the problem on the Dell Laptop hardware section. Maybe one of the tech's there, who are more familiar with the Dell Laptops, can help you.
