  1. Sound problems when plugging in headphones


    Since buying a new laptop and updating to windows 10 I have had a problem with the sound, the problem being that when I plug in a set of headphones I manually have to go on playback devices to set my headphones as default and also on the volume mixer to select my headphones on the drop down arrow or else the sound will keep coming out of my speakers. Basically it is not doing anything automatically, so everytime I plug in headphones, or connect to the tv I have to change everything manually, and do the same thing when disconnecting or else there will be no sound atall.

    I did read on the internet that by plugging in my headphones and then making them my default sounds device would work because it is supposed to automatically change when they are unplugged but unfortunately this is not the case for me. Also I am curious as to why even when I don't have my headphones plugged in, they are still listed under playback, but it does not say they are unplugged. I would appreciate anybody who can help me with this problem because I have run out of ideas.

    Many thanks in advance

    :)

  2. Windows sound problem

    Hey guys I have a problem with my sound. I mean its not excatly a problem . I have windows 10 enterprise x64 bit and have all my drivers installed . The problem is that I have 2 devices like this https://i.gyazo.com/afb9f836e16c4f60f1be29b5dec1cd99.png .
    And when I set the headphones as a default device I only hear sound on headphones and when I set speakers as default device I hear sounds both on speakers and headphones . My question is , how can I be able to hear music from headphones when I plug headphones
    and when I remove headphones to hear music from speakers . I plug headphones I hear music only on headphones not on speakers and when I plug out headphones I hear music on speakers . Understand ? Sorry for my bad english

    Speakers Stopped Muting When Headphones Plugged In

    This only addresses a problem with no sounds not muting the speakers when headphones are plugged in. There is a defect in sound protocol.
