    The headphone port on my laptop is suddenly no longer playing through the headphones, but through the regular speakers instead. How do I fix this?

    You won't believe this, but the few words you used to describe the situation are a bit ambiguous :rolleyes:

    so, some questions:

    1. Do the headphones (hp) work correctly in any other device?

    2. When the hp's are plugged in do the PC spkrs CONTINUE to play sounds?

    3. Are any items MUTED in the expanded sound controls?

    It sounds like the headphone jack is probably broken. When you plug the headphones in, contacts are supposed to open to mute the speakers and route the sound through the headphones. Obviously, that's not happening.
