Hello,

just today I purchased a Windows 8 laptop, (hating windows 8 so far) and my headphones (using the standard headphone jack) do not work. I have been googling like crazy, only to find fixes for Realtek Audio Cards. I have an AMD Audio Card, with fully updated drivers. Thanks in advance all who help, and I hope to be hearing from someone soon.

Hi wtoj34,

This problem might be hardware or software issue. I am providing below the steps to eliminate any software related issue, viz. Drivers Issue. Please uninstall the Audio Drivers from the Device Manager and restart the computer to load generic Windows 8 Drivers. To uninstall the Audio Driver from Device Manager:

1. From the Start screen press the "Windows Key" + X. If you have a mouse, right click the bottom left side of the screen.
2. Select "Device Manager" from the menu that appears.
3. Expand "Sound, video and game controllers".
4. Right Click the device listed here.
5. Click "Uninstall".
6. Restart the computer and check if the audio jack is working.

Do reply with results.
My problem is fix on this :
My problem start , becouse I stick the jack and click the Headphone...
THE FIX IS :
--Click on Windows button and search DELL AUDIO--
--Click on Advanced--
--Click Jack Information--
--Check IN the small text on down(Enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in)--
--STICK OUT JACK and Stick in again and click SPEAKER OUT--

I hope I help you !!!

HI,

I have a problem with my audio.
when I plug in my headphones it doesn't show in the realtech playback devices.
I tried uninstalling everything under "sound,video,game controller" but nothing happened.
when I plug in my headphones the sound comes from both the speakers and the headphones.

plz anyone can help me solve this problem.

i have an hp pavilion laptop.
WHat you do is you right click the speaker logo and then click on playback devices then right click the speaker and disable it!

I FOUND A SOLUTION!
(This is for Dell computers/laptops, I don't know about other models though but maybe it can help those others as well)
NO NEED TO UNINSTAL ANYTHING!
I called a Support Tech and they walked me through it!

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS THIS:
--Right Click the music/sound/speaker icon that's on your desktop
--Click on "Sound Manager" tab (it will lead you to Dell Audio a.k.a Maxx Audio 4)
--Click on the "Speaker/Headphone" tab at the top (if you're not already in it)
--Look at the side-tab categories for "Speaker Setup", click on it
--You'll be in Configuration; click on the tab "Headphone Size"
--THERE WILL BE THREE SIZES
---HEADPHONES, click on SMALL
---LAPTOP/COMPUTER itself, click MEDIUM
---When connecting to bigger speakers select LARGE
---OR JUST TRY WHICHEVER SIZE THAT'LL CONFIGURE TO YOUR CONNECTING SPEAKER


Hope people read this and this helps! You're Welcome! (if this helps! Lol)
I have a dell..and I right clicked the sound bar and it didnt say sound manager..

I right clicked on the "Dell Audio" icon (when on the Desktop screen, at the bottom right close to the date & time, click on the triangle to open some icons. The fancy looking speaker as opposed to the usual one next to the date & time is the "Dell Audio" icon which you want to right click... then follow the steps that Master Martinez outlined. :D)

Thanks a bunch! This helped a lot. :)

Hi wtoj34,

I am glad to know that the issue has been fixed. Sometimes it's tricky, once we see the Device Manager, we can easily determine the devices in our computer.

Kindly get back if there are any further queries.
What do I uninstall???

"4. Right Click the device listed here. "

Hi Mecha,

"IDT High Definition Audio CODEC" is the one you need to uninstall and then restart. Also check under "Other Devices" if any audio device is listed. If so, please uninstall that also.

Do reply with results.

Ello there Zohaib R. I as well am having troubles with my headphone jack, and I have two things under the "Sound, Video and game controllers" tab, those are

AMD High Definition Audio Device
and the
IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

Are one of these the ones you're talking about or is there another one I need to find / look for and if one of these ARE the ones, do I just uninstall & I'm fine or do I need to uninstall it and look for something else to work with...

Many thanks!

Hey Zohaib. I'm also having probs with headphone jack, and I have three things under the 'sound, video and game controllers' tab, those are

Bluetooth audio device
intel(R) display audio
realtek high definition audio

so frustrating as its a brand new laptop with windows 8 (which I HATE), one should just be able to plug in headphones and hey presto

Many thanks in advance

Hi Zohaib R,

Having the same trouble. The two things under 'Sound video and game controllers' are 'IDT High Definition Audio Codec' and 'Intel(R) Display Audio.'

I have tried uninstalling the IDT codec and restarting but it is back after the restart and the jack still does not work.

Device instance path for IDT is HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76E5&SUBSYS_103C18FA&REV_1003\4&30150BE&0&0001
and for Intel(R) is HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2806&SUBSYS_80860101&REV_1000\4&30150BE&0&0301

Any help would be most appreciated

I had this problem with my computer at work- after much trial and error I found the solution to be very simple. I went into Sound Manager. In the Speakers tab, to the right it says Analog. to the right above the word analog there is a little folder. I left clicked on that folder. It says "disable jack detection." I clicked on this, and I was instantly able to hear sound from my earbuds on my Dell computer at work!

I hope this helps.
Where I can't find the speakers tab.
please send some pictures.
