    Hey guys, i currently run my 5.1 speakers from the back panel of my computer and have recently brought a headset that i use for gaming, plugged into the front audio panel. When i want to listen to music i use my speakers, so i find myself having to unplug my headset from the front panel to make my speakers work again. Is there a way i can change between devices without having to unplug anything ?

    Thanks in advance

    The headphone jack is purposely designed to mute speaker output when headphones are plugged in.
    I don't know of any way to prevent that.
