    Simple problem that has been confusing me lately. I'm using a Acer Aspire 5570-2052 Laptop running Windows Vista. On it is Realtek HD Audio Manager, and it has been causing me some problems with headphones.

    To elaborate, they simply don't work except on random occurances. The speakers put out sound as normal, but when I plug in my headphones, ANY pair of headphones, no sound comes out of them and the speakers continue to function as normal.

    It's wierder then that though, rarely the headphones WILL have sound come out of them, but the speakers are still putting out sound as well. The only way the headphones themselves have ever worked is when I go into the Windows sound manager, and pressed the main mute button which muted the speakers, but not the headphones.

    Now not even the headphones work though, so that method is moot. For reference the Realtek driver is, last updated on 12/1/2006. I'm going to update it today(have to do so from the library), but I doubt that'll work given the wierdness of this problem...
