Headphones are not working on Laptop

October 2016


Headphones are not working on Laptop. I've tried to see if enabling it from my Audio manager would work. But the headphones won't show up at the list.


Go to Control Panel
  • Click on Hardware and Sound
  • Click on Sound
  • Then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones
  • Plug your headphones.
  • Then select headphones in the list.
  • Click set as default

As from now when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones!!

Thanks to bionik for this tip.
