New 512MB 8800TS, No Headphones?

  Crazygeorge3 00:42 21 Dec 2008


I have just installed my new 8800GTS. It was a bit of a mission putting it in (i had to rewire my pc quite a bit, tucking in the cables etc.)

No it seems however, that no headphones work?. My speakers work fine, but i can't plug any headphones in. I have a nasty feeling that i haven't reconnected one of the cables correctly when i was rewiring, which cable would control this part of my pc? what does it look like?

Are you plugging the headphones into the same green socket as the speakers? If it's a standalone sound card, make sure you aren't plugging the headphones into an onboard sound card outlet. If it's a front of PC socket, check the connections, inside the case, to that socket.

Yes, i am plugging the headphones into the same socket.

The ones at the front of the PC don't work either, its quite confusing...

If the speakers work in the socket, then there's nothing wrong with the socket, do the speakers work in the front socket? Faulty headphones, I think.

Nope, it seems that the speakers don't work on the front jack either. Forgot to rewire something?

The thing i don't understand is why the heatphones don't work on the jack at the back of the pc

I've just checked on sound properties and found something interesting.

Under "Jack Information" for the speakers it says:

L R Rear Panel 3.5 mm jack

And for the currently disabled headphones it says

L R Front Panel 3.5 mm jack

I'm not sure what to to make of this
