A couple of weeks ago, I had to unplug everything connected to my computer, while I moved it to decorate. Decorating done, and computer back in place, but now I have a strange, but annoying problem. When I plug my headphones in, I don't hear anything, and the speakers still work. First thought would be the jack socket, but if I go into playback devices, and select headphones, and run the test, they work perfectly. If I reboot my pc, with the headphones plugged in, they work, but I can't get the speakers to. Again, running a test, shows them to work. I have even tried updating the drivers, but apparently, I have the latest drivers. I'm totally lost now as to what the problem/solution is. Hope someone can help.

It's an Acer Aspire X3200. Phenom 9100e Quad Core Processor 1.8 GHz
4GB ram. Running on Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit. The sound set up is confusing. In device manager, sound controllers, I have NVIDIA HDMI Audio, and Realtek High Definition Audio.

Have you tried uninstallig the existing drivers and reinstalling them?

I uninstalled the device, and re-booted, which found the device again, but that only worked until I unplugged the headphones. Then the speakers wouldn't work.
