then change the default to your Speakers (not phone ones).

forgive me if im no help
Phone - headphones.
Sorry, I meant my telephone, mobile/cell made the bleepy noise, not the 'phones'.
Speakers at the back won't manually mute - I switch manually between headphones and speakers when I want to switch on the Realtek manager. That setting you've suggested is already ticked.

Nothing changed, speaker wise in WMP, songs play, no sound comes out, despite speakers being selected either when they are switched to default or specifically to speakers. Humm.

Hmm i also switch between my headphones and speakers also. but for one to get detected i had to 1st have one of course plugged in then plug in the other one and reboot and vice versa but since i bought USB Headphones it's easy switching between the two (no rebooting).. dunno really what to say :\

Well it was working fine until today, so, I will cross my fingers and hope it just sorts itself out, things usually do. If not, I may uninstall and reinstall the Realtek software and see what occurs.

It is doable, at least with mine drivers. I use the VIA HD Audio Deck to do this:

Yeah sorry, I don't think changing software / re-installing is really needed though but who knows might work. as i see Product FRED's Manager is easy to understand

No setting has changed. As far as I know. Drivers are up to date. Can I used another sound manager if my device is Realtek?
