I've got the front and back audio connectors working simultaniously on my Motherboard (Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R) with Realtec drivers.

Activate the 'Mute the rear output device when a front headphone plugged in' under the advanced settings menu.

Click on Folder Icon next to Analog. Click on the 'Disable Front Panel Jack Detection' button.

I've got both green connectors set to headphone.

Only the 'Speakers' icon is showing....no '2nd Output Device' is showing.

It has always worked for me.

Hi, none of these methods are working for me. I've got the sound out of the rear output jack but can't find anything to change it to the front jack! It is really frustrating me! :@

Theres no "sound option" please be more specific, if by that you meant right-clicking the taskbar horn icon or accessing sound/audio device through control panel neither of those give us access to such options (properties) (headphones) so im still confused? this problem is frustrating enough i wish someone would be more clear about this
Dan- Nov 17, 2012 11:21AM
Yes, thats what I mean. I can access the properties and icon on the toolbar but no choice is given onthe Realtek Audio I/O Menu. I get the spanner button on the right of the word 'Analog' but that only gives me the choice of seeing whether or not I want to enable a pop up dialog when a device is plugged in! I get sound out of the rear jack but I want my earphones to work in the front jack port. My computer recently went in for a hardware change and came back with this problem. Any help, much appreciated.

If you followed all the advice above and still cant find a cure, I might have another suggestion for you.

1. First be sure that you are not sharing ports in the front and back. The green port in the back is the same port thats used as a headphone in the front. The same goes for the pink microphone jack. So be sure only ONE of these (either the front or the back) is in use.
2. If no sound comes from the front jacks, go into "Reaklek HD Audio Manager" and in the "Audio I/O" tab click the little wrench button next to the word "Analog."
3. In this setting, CHECK "Disable Front Panel Jack Detection."
4. Click OK and suddenly you should be hearing audio and recording with your mic from the front jacks.

Hope this helps you guys, Good luck!

Using both front and rear panel? Front panel for headphone and rear for speakers? Then, speakers working, headphone not? Here's a little trick:

Open Realtek HD Audio, select Audio I/O, click the "Connector Setting Icon" right side of the "ANALOG"
text, after clicking it, a Connector Setting Window/Dialog Box will pop out.

There are three check boxes on it, the Disable, Mute and Enable, Mute/2nd box and Enable/3rd box already had checks on them, put a check on the Disable/1st box.

Test your headphone and speaker, they should both working now. Uncheck the Disable/1st box later.

Hope this help you guys.. Sorry for my bad english.. ^_-

Having the same trouble with Realtek HD Audio and headphones not cutting out the speakers since I applied SP3 to an XP media center PC. Disconnecting the external speakers has no effect although Realtek control panel still recognises when I plug in the headphones.

hello, ive just recently brought a headset.

I have usb speakers and I unplugged them out of the back. I then put my headset into the green and pink ports and the pink (microphone) works fine. The green one however doesn't. No sound comes out of my headphones. I tried them in the monitor and it doesn't work. I then tried all the sound stuff on the computer and changed it to headset etc. I've just ordered some more speakers that have the 'holes' to put my headset in. But, The speakers will probably need the green port and now I'm worried that I've wasted more money. Is there anyway I can fix this?

Thankyou

Go on Realtek.

Just press speaker off. You should get the headphone sound if you have them plugged in.

I have an Advent K laptop.
