Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Goto your computer's control panel, and then click on your sound icon. When your sound properties come up, You should see your playback properties. It will have three options at the top (playback, recording, Sounds). Make sure your playback is clicked. You should see Speakers/Headphones, and next to it, you should see the source of playback sound your system is playing through. You should also see your headphones/headset listed. At the bottm, you should set your headset/headphones as the default source that you want to hear your computer audio play through. Once you click that, close it all out, and then make sure whatever you are trying to listen to is closed and then reopened. Once you do that and then reopen the item that you want to listen to, you should hear it playing through you headphones/headset. Thanks

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 ,

If you right hand mouse click on the louspeaker icon, click on open volume mixer.
You can set the headphone volume and speaker volumes from there. (depending on your OS and set up preferences)

The Laptop has 3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack
Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack
Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -
One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)
Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.
You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.
click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7
or you might have to depending on your operating system
Click start Control Pannel
click on Hardware and Sound
click on Sound
then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones
plug your headphones in
then select headphones
at the bottom it will say set as default
then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones
