Use both headphone/speaker jacks


I'm using a Studio 15 with Windows 7. I have 2 headphone jacks and when I plug a speaker in each jack, it only plays sound through one of the two.

I can go to Control Panel and change the default speaker to switch between the two but I can't play both at the same time. Is there any way I can play sound through both speakers simultaneously?

Please help!

I've got the front and back audio connectors working simultaneously 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!
Thank you

Go to sound manager by clicking right on icon of sound on taskbar,
then click on the folder icon.. now you should know what you are supposed to be doing.

Guys I Think You Should Buy An Audio Splitter. Which You Can Plug It Into Any Of The Jacks . So When You Connect It .It Splits The Jacks Into 2 So You Can Connec Both The Headphones And Speakers :)
