Question about Computers & Internet
Up until recently, my headphone jacks worked perfectly fine. Now when I plug headphones in, the computer does not seem to recognize it. I've tried re-installing the audio drivers, but it's done nothing. My sound options does not display options for letting me control headphone jacks for some reason. Is it possible to route my sound through a usb device instead, in case there are no solutions?
It could be there is dust in your jack. Cut down a Q-Tip and stick it in. If that doesn't fix it, it could possible be the jack has gone out. There are USB sound cards that would provide a jack.

SOURCE: headphone jack quit working
Hi. There's no problem with your laptop. It is you jack that faulted. Try another new jack or have a new one. maybe your cable has some cuts that are unnoticed since it is inside the rubber coated wire. It may be caused by constantly fondling the cable while at work or operation.
To check the cable functionality use multi tester to check its functionality. If you want to have easy trouble shooting replace the jack cable.
Please reply for any feed back so that I can suggest more option to your problem.

sound like the hardware supporting your headphones may have disconnected from its solder.This could have happened from dropping the notebook with the headphones plugged in and landing badly, or a strong or constant tug on the input. Otherwise, it could be a software configuration like you've tried

You say that you get sound from the speakers but not the headphones,, what i advice you to do is going to control panel, go in hardware and sound, in device manager, look for your sound driver for example, sound max, once you found them right click and uninstall, afterwards restart your pc, that should fix your sound by reinstalling your drivers, if that doesnt work i recommend going to control panel sound settings and switching sound outputs..
