Windows 7: plugged in headphones, speakers no longer work

29 Dec 2014   #1

plugged in headphones, speakers no longer work

I have speakers plugged into the back panel. I plugged a new pair of headphones into the front panel and they worked fine. I unplugged them, and the speakers no longer work, even though everything shows them as working. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Realtek drivers, now only one side of the headphones work. Any idea if this can be fixed, or do I need to buy a new computer now? Motherboard is asus sabertooth.

Welcome to our forum realtekproblem.

Try this.

Go to the little speaker lower right corner and right tick on it.
Select Playback Devices.
Choose what you want as a Playback device by right ticking on it and select Set as default device.
After selecting your device right tick on it again and select (test) it should play.
