Question about Philips HP-170 Headphones
Both speakers work fine while playing music or watching movies on my vista home premium 64 bit computer. When I plug my mic in I get sound from only one speaker. Dell techs updated drivers, that didn't work. The motherboard was replaced and that didn't work. I replaced the mic as the dell techs had advised, that didn't work. Oh by the way, the mics work fine on windows xp. I purchased this computer to record on but it is useless if I can't record in stereo and now the techs at dell tell me that I have to purchase another mic only this time buy a stereo mic. The tech who replaced the motherboard says that he's never seen a problem like this one before. I have realtek high definition audio. Can someone please help me solve this problem? thanks in advance
Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that this is linked to the realtek program off shutting off the speakers when the earphones are attatched , it is confusing the Mic plug on one channel as a speaker plug .. check in the advanced section of your mixer settings that you have not got the box ticked that says treat all inputs the same .. and the other that says mute rear when front plugged in ? as does mine .. ( same system that was my problem yours may be diffrent ) if this fails uninstall your realtek drivers and uncheck the realtek devices in device manager unistall them and rebboot the computer installing new drivers .. hope this helps regards Vortash
