    Hi Everyone


    I have a new PC with Windows 10 pro, i have external speakers that i like to use but if i plug them in after W10 has booted up the jack is not recognised - if i start w10 witht he speakers plugged in the external speakers work fine - how do i get W10 to recognise the 3.5m jack after it has booted up - this problem is silly


    I tried the trouble shooter - which is no good if it cant see the jack

    i tried uninstalling the realtek driver - no success


    any ideas gratefully appreciated.


    thanks

    Karen

  3. Plug broke off in rear speaker jack: front headphone jack disabled now


    Your sound driver may have options to enable/disable jacks based on what's plugged in the front/rear. For instance, my Realtek driver has:

    As for removing the broken plug it would depend on how far in it broke and how tight the jack is. I don't have any personal experience but there are a number of suggestions if you Google for "how to remove broken 3.5mm jack."

    External Speaker Problems with Windows 10

    I have a set of external speakers that have been working fine on Win10 for nearly a year. Suddenly, my computer won't even recognize that any speakers are even plugged into any or the audio output jacks.

    • I have tried updating the drivers numerous times.
    • When I run the troubleshooter, it only tells me to plug in the speakers.
    • I can't adjust the volume, because, again, the computer does not believe there are any speakers to adjust.
    • I have tried plugging another set of speakers into the computer with no change.
    • And, I have tried playing audio from my smartphone on both sets of speakers, and the speakers work just fine.

    Really frustrated here. If anyone has any additional suggestions, please let me know.

    Thanks!!
