I have windows vista on a HP machine (1 year old) I have Advent speakers that were working fine connected to back panel through black socket. my problem is I purchased a headphones and mic kit when ive plugged it in on front panel the mic works but the headphones do not when I remove the headphones plug I have sound through speakers but when it is connected I have no sound through speakers. I have been onto the realtek Audio Manager which says all devices are working properly all volume controls are up and none are muted. The headphones have been selected as default. The only box with a red mark against it is the line in am I missing a lead with this kit which is causing this problem? Please help.

You need to test the headphones using another sound source (iPod or radio). It is normal for the speakers to be disconnected when you insert a headphone jack.
while calling no outgoing sound is reaching the other end
well... my back pannel works fine, but my fp makes strange noises. My audio card is: Asus Xonar DS (sorry for my bad english :| )
any ideas?
