Windows 7: Audio program questions

Audio program questions

Hi guys,
I have external speakers set up to my laptop which work perfectly fine. Plays everything like they are supposed to. However, when I try to play this other program's sound, the audio goes through my laptop speakers. This is all the while my external speakers are still playing audio from everything else.

My Independent Duel Headphones are set to my default, and I have also tried redownloading my audio driver.

Any ideas?

On another note, is their any way that I could route a programs audio to my headphone jack?

If you are playing audio and then want to play addtional audio from another source that can cause conflicts and even confuse the software.

What programs are you trying to simultaneously play audio from?

Well, its not additional audio persay, I was just stating that everything was playing through my external speakers while this 1 program was playing through my laptop speakers.

Well, I was fooling around with the audio enable/disable properties and I've found my solution. I have disabled my "Independent Headphones" and "SPDIF (Digital Out via HP Dock)" which means that the only enabled device left is "Speakers and Headphones". I guess, in regard to FireBerd's comment earlier, my computer was getting alittle confused. Now that I limited the audio options to 1, it started working again. Thanks FireBerd lol

Thanks; I didn't really help other than, I guess, lead you in the right direction.
