Headphones


Howdy there, I tried to listen to some music on my headphones today but when I connected them to the comp not a sound was to be heard in my phones and the speakers were still playing like before, I tried kmix and turned up the volume on the PhoneIn and all the lines but still no sound. How come? And how do I solve this?

Did you attach the phones to the back (soundcard) or to the cdrom itself?

Im not playing a cdrom, its mp3's... So, yes I attached it to the normal headphone port (although mine is on the front of the comp, not and the back of the soundcard)

Sorry if this is redundant but if you connected it to the "phonein" port, that's for microphone input, not headphone output. You need to connect it to the same output you'd connect speakers to, which on my sound card is green.

I agree with Kovacs - most likely the headphones are simply plugged into the wrong port. Are the speakers still plugged into the (typically) green port, while the headphones are plugged into something else? If so, you need to unplug the speakers, then plug the headphones into that port. Generally there will only be one Audio Out port, and that's what you need to use. -- J.W.

Nope, my card is special, it has one right and one left output port, and I plug the phones into the right one, it works when I run windows!

Most modern sound cards have a secondary spk output (a header on the PCB itself) where you can connect a front headphone jack. You might want to verify that the driver you're using is exactly the right one for your sound card. You could also just try plugging in your headphones and turning all the volume levels to zero, then turn them up one at a time until you hear something. It's not an elegant solution, but it's a start. Be sure and let us know how you solve this and what sound card you're using.
