Hi, my headphone jack is set to the front of my PC however it is broken and for some reason when i plug my headphones in the back of the pc it is not detecting them. Anyone know how to solve this?

Start - Settings - System -Sound - choose your output device

  1. Go to device manager/ sounds and mic tabs then right click and uninstall drivers even if they dont have a yellow triangle on them. Windows will reinstall them on restart. 2. In sounds/playback tab right click and disable the realtek digital output. just above the icon when using SPEAKERS you should see a green tick in the speaker icon , right click if missing. When you plug in your headphones the icon will go out and if you scroll down you will see a new one for headphones . when you swap between speakers and phones it takes a few seconds to find new device. 3. check properties tab on both headphones .... green jack highlighted and microphone pink jack.
    finally at bottom right corner where the speaker icon is change the tab to realtec high def audio , i have my volume at 50% because at 100% when I used headphones on level 2 so 50% makes headphone adjustment more user friendly.

May also be worth confirming that the headphone sockets on the back are wired in. Some MOBOs only have one headphone connection so if the front panel one was wired in the rear one may not have been.
