Taskbar > double click volume icon > master volume > mute microphone sound alone....

problem solved!
Awesome...I just assumed that the muting would apply to all sound devices on my Fujitsu (6410) so I never tried the mute button..

In the past, if I rebooted my PC with the headphone jack in place, the sound would come only over my headphones, but if I removed the jack and reinserted it, I would get sound from both my headphones and my PC speakers, forcing me to reboot evey time I wanted headphone sound only. Reinserting the headphone jack while the mute button is on gives me no problems at all as I just unclick the mute button to get my PC speakers back up...Many Thanks!

Just turn the speakers off when you are using the headphones.
And how to just turn the speakers off when I am on the headset? on my sound management I have buttons: Master volume, wave, SW synth, SPDIF, CD volume, mic volume. And there is absolutely no speakers that can be turned off.
If I off the master volume both the headset and the computer will be mute.
So I would really appreciate an explanation for dummies (me he he) so as to be able to turn off my computer speakers when I have my headset on.
Thanking you in advance!

I had the same kind of problem once. all u have to do is try reinstalling the audiodrivers.
Follow the below set of steps to reinstall the audio drivers

1.Right-click My Computer icon and select Properties.
2. Click Hardware Tab then click Device Manager Button.
3. Click on the + mark beside sound, audio and game controllers and you will have the list of audio drivers.
4. Right click and uninstall the audio drivers from the unit and once done restart the unit.

After the restart, download and install the audio driver which is particular to ur computer set.

hope this helps..

just disable sound in the sound control menu for pc speakers and enable sound for microphone
Does this method work with all computers or just some? I have an old Compaq Computer with windows xp. Please let me know. Thank you.
