<p>In general, the audio devices use audio cables such as RCA
stereo headphones, or telephone cables, connection to other devices. In case
you need a USB device to a stereo phone plug, you should use a single adapter
cable to connect the USB cable will convert to a stereo phone. <br />
<p>1. Connect the USB end of the headphone adapter to the USB
port of your audio device. <br />
<p>2. Connect one end of the headset to your male cable to the
headphone port of the headset USB adapter. <br />
<p>3. Connect the other end of your headphone male to male
cable to the headphone port of your stereo plug. Now you can connect to any
port to connect to stereo. <br />
Seems that the drivers for your sound card is not installed. Just update the sound driver. Where did you purchase the product? Where did you download the driver? You could have download a driver for a different OS.
If the excalation mark on your device manager is gone, that should fix the isse.
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..)?
Booting to an external USB drive depends on your BIOS but as far as your monitor goes have you tried plugging an external monitor into the vga port in back yet? It may be that your backlight is non-functional and an external monitor will give you the work-around you need.
