Um, well I tried to see if enabling it from my Audio manager would work. But the headphones won't show up at the list.

I have tried headphones ranging up to cheesy 99 cent ones to 10$ Zune ear phones.
I don't think it's the earphones. I think I am missing a driver I can't find. It looks as if it doesn't recognize my headphones being there. Is the jack possibly broken?

Computer model: Toshiba Satellite a105 S4034
Windows 7
I am using Realtek high definition audio.

Thank you
  • Go to Control Panel
  • click on Hardware and Sound
  • click on Sound
  • then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones
  • plug your headphones in
  • then select headphones
  • at the bottom it will say set as default
  • select that!!
  • then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you *plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones!!

Good Luck
