I have had a new laptop for a month or so, with Windows , it's been fine. Suddenly my headphone socket is not working- when I put headphones or a lead in the socket, sound continues to come out of the laptop speakers, but not into the headphones.

Can anyone help?

Thank you in advance

turn off laptop
remove power supply and battery both
push the power button of laptop, keep it pressed for 30 seconds, then put back battery and reboot

it basically removes static charges

headphone should work now
It worked, great thanks.
