    I was playing a track in media player and when I plugged in the headphones (front panel) they didn't work, also the sound from the speakers wasn't cut off. I then un-plugged the speakers and instead tried the headphones into the rear panel and nothing happened - but then when I plugged them into the front again they worked, but when the speakers where plugged in again (rear) then only the headphones work!! I rebooted and its back the way it was... speakers work but not headphones???
    In summary... Replace the speakers (rear panel) with headphones and it switches the sound to the front panel, and it stays that way until rebooted.
    I can't think of anything I did to affect this, I tried updating the driver but no change, any ideas anyone?
