Equium Laptop Headphones Not Working

I have a Toshiba Equium laptop running Vista Home Premium. When I plug in headphones the speakers should go off and sound come out the phones, but this is not happening -- speakers stay on and no sound on phones. I'm pretty sure this use to work OK once upon a time.

    I found two things that resolved this issue --



    First I had to make Headphones the Default device in Playback settings in Hardware and Sound in the Control Panel



    Second I discovered that just plugging in the phones does not necessarily actively switch the sound output. For some applications (e.g. RealPlayer) it doesn't see a change of device on-the-fly, but you have to close and re-open the app for it to start using the phones. Similarly if you are listening on phones and then unplug them.

The jack might be disconnected from the mobo,or it's simply broken or the headphones don't touch the contact metal properly

External speakers not working for Alienware laptop using windows vista


first, make sure the speakers actually work before you mess with your laptop. plug into tv, transister radio or iPod or whatever. Once you have verified, make sure it is plugged into the right port. Usually the headphones port is the one you want. To verify port, use headphones. If still not working, click on the speaker icon in the windows tray on the status line, click mixer, verify speakers is not muted or turned down.

My computer's sound doesn't auto switch from hdphn to spkrs.


Two possible causes one is the headphone jack and the other a driver issue.

The headphone jack has a metal leg that is pushed out of the way when you insert the plug. It then switches from speakers to the jack. That's how it is supposed to work. The third leg can get dirty or bent or loose and not switch correctly. If it is dirty you can sometimes clean it just by inserting it and pulling it out a "few" times. If it is mechanical ie loose then it needs to be replaced which means replacing the main motherboard. You can check for warranty but from experience it might just be one of those things to get used to instead of trying to get them to replace a main board.

If it is a driver all you can do is hope they update the drivers. You can check the drivers versions and release dates on the Toshiba website. Just go to www.toshiba.com then support then laptop and then find your model. Drivers and sort by your operating system. Unfortunately Toshiba seems to have a history of unresolved sound card driver issues.

Why our head phones on Computer are not working


Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).

Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?

Before going to any shops, here is a suggestion that can't hurt anything.
Go to the Control Panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Volume tab at the bottom, you will see "Speaker Settings". Click on the Advanced button. Change that setting to "Stereo headphones". You should hear the sound only through the headphones then.
