Windows 7: ASUS Laptop sound issue

ASUS Laptop sound issue

This is my third thread post because I'm having three issues all at the same time but this one is actually very old. It doesn't bug me but can get annoying.

If I plug in headphones and take it out, it'll say the headphones are still plugged in 90% of the time. I just go to "Change sound card settings" and disable headphones when I'm not using it so the speaker is in use. I usually use my speakers but my sibling uses headphones so it gets annoying.

Is there a way to fix this?

I have an ASUS x550C laptop running Windows 7 64 bit, Professional.

That sounds like a defective headphone jack. Many headphone jacks have an extra contact that signals that a headphone is plugged in. If that contact is "flakey" as it seems yours is that could cause the problem.

Is there any way to solve it? When I first got my laptop, it didn't have this issue. It happened I think a few months after.

IF the jack is defective, it would have to be replaced. Many laptops have a small "daughter board" (separate board) with the I/O jacks on them. IF the jack is defective and yours has a separate board it would have to be replaced.

Ah ok. Well I guess I'll just leave it on speaker. It's not a big issue for me and I don't want to go through the hassle.

Thank you very much for your help.
