    Hey guys,

    The g/f's lappy that i did a installed and upoaded the drivers eitc on had run into a problem.

    She hooked up her headphones to watch some video for her class in her dorm and turns out the sound was coming out from her speakers as well, which woke up her dorm mate.


    So i went over and had a look at it and im stumped, i plug it in and the sound comes out of both, but i don't know how to disable the sound from the speakers when she is listening to headphones.


    Any ideas?

    There is usually a setting in the audio panel, not the windows panel but say realteks panel, should say something along the lines of disable rear output when front input is detected.

    Install the drivers for whatever sound card she has, it will likely fix the problem, or give you the option to fix the problem.
