    I'm on my Phillips Laptop, and it's been through a bit of a saga after a failed installation of ubuntu, I had to do a clean install of windows xp sp3 and then get all the bits and pieces working again. The audio has been my biggest headache, and now this is the situation. After installing realtek ac'97 audio driver, and realtek HD audio driver, the sound came through speakers, hooray! Now whenever I plug in my headphones, the speakers don't mute. There is sound coming through both the headphones and the speakers. When I plug in the headphones, the realtek audio manager (which I would like to be rid of without losing my audio, but for some reason do this) recognises that the headphones have been plugged in with a popup, so sound comes through the headphones, but the speakers don't change volume at all. I've been looking round the internet to try and find a solution to this, to no avail. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the audio drivers countless times, going into audio properties and changing the speakers to headphones, nothing has worked so far. Really hoping someone here might finally have a solution.
