Post Headphones in RH9


Hmm...last night my heaphones were working fine. Now, they wont even play the test sounds from soundcard detection. No CD audio, no mp3s, not even sound effects in gaim.

Using RedHat9
With Audigy 2 Platinum.

any ideas other than restarting?

Borrow another set of headphones and see if they work. It might just be your headphones, not Red Hat. Can you get sound through your speakers?

Yes, but still try another pair of headphones. I really doubt that it is a RH issue (I might be wrong).

Where do you plug the phones into? Back of the computer, front, into the speakers?

It sounds like a hardware issue of some kind. That is why I want you to try another pair of headphones in the same slot. Something could have fouled up inside your computer.

the headphones plug into the front of the audigy 2 platinum soundcard,. It takes up a 5.25" drive bay underneath my CD burner. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

I tried with another pair and still no sound at all

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?

German beat me to it.

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.

ok, checked inside the case, i guess my only other hardware option is to power off, unplug some things, and power back on...

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.
