View Full Version : Vista Headphone Suddenly stop working

06-09-2011, 09:26 AM

I got Windows Vista Service Pack2. My headphone was working fine. I don't know when it stopped working.

Under "Sound-->Playback Devices", the speaker etc are enabled and showing as working. But the Headphone is showing as "Not Plugged In". Thus "Enable/Disable option is grayed out and can't change. I can't listen voice in iTune and Real Player etc. But I can still talk on Skype. I think, this is because Skype has separate option which playback device to choose. But this shows the headphone is plugged in and working.

I have done "Update Driver" and it is the latest driver installed. I have tried restart PC two three times but still not working.

Please give me some clue to solve this problem.

The socket maybe stuffed or something. Or theyre not in the socket far enough. Is it the front or the back of the case, you plugged the headphones into? If the front, plug them into the back

Is it USB?
