Thank you
Are these actual headphones, or do they have a MICROPHONE with them? Can you use them for a phone conversation (what is that?) on your mobile? If you can, then you are using the WRONG type of headphones in your PC! Post back, and I will explain!

Get a regular pair of headphones. the pair you are using has a physical connection for the mic, and the jack for the headphones does not have that connecrltion so it isnt making a connection to the speakers! New pair for listening and no mic is in order!

hello
The earphones are fine because when i try putting them in the other laptop they function but in mine they don't function. So I think the problem might be on the laptop and not the earphones
