So do you plug the speakers into the same physical hole, or are they in the sound card in the back (I assume) of your computer? Can you hear anything at all through the jack you want to use for headphones?
Do you dual-boot at all? If so, do the headphones work in your other OS?
Also, you say they were working the night before, but not the next day... It doesn't sound like a software thing at all. It is possible that there is a loose connection inside or something like that that maybe was jostled the last time you took the phones out or something like that.
I guess it could be a software thing but it doesn't make sense to me that the speakers would still work but the headphones didn't (if it was a software issue).
I just wonder if the connecter inside your soundcard has been affected by something.
good to hear... but if I had this problem (if this is the audigy drive I'm thinking about) I would have taken the cap off the SPDIF out port and checked if the red light was on before I started messing with my OS... and you said that it worked in XP as well, which was misleading.
