    Hi

    thanks so much.

    I tried all that. Audio is ok.

    headphones are really Ipod headphones so, no 'off' switch.

    Headphone firmly in. used the correct port, not the mic port

    tried reinsatlling driver. it said it's the best version.

    i tried two different headsets.

    nothings working so far

If you are able to hear normally from the speakers and not from the headphones possible reasons could be:
the audio is muted or very low
there is a mute switch on the headphone that is turned on
the headphone is not firmly plugged in or is in the wrong site eg microphone
hope it helps
please inform if it helps..

Trouble with Headphones output ...


If the sound comes and goes like that and you aren't using any strange software that changes these settings (like Skype), then your soundcard is most likely dying on you. I've seen this happen on several Acer-laptops.

Headphone jack


when the sound device is installed it should give you sound effect manager or sound device,to access this go to START then CONTROL PANEL then SOUND SPEECH AND AUDIO DEVICE,open Sound Effect Manager,then Sound Effect,select Headphones from the Enviroment Dropdown and click ok.test this output now.

If this doesn't resolve the problem ,
reinstall device again.

No sound when headphones cabel is into laptop


If you are using Windows Vista, the solution might be that you have to go into your control settings, and set your headphones as your default speakers. This is a one-time deal, and once you do it once, then your computer should auto detect when you are using them after this.
