    Hi all,

    I just purchased a new soundcard which replaces the original soundcard (on the motherboard)
    Installation went fine and I can hear sound via the speakers. The question I hope someone can help me with is how I can hear sound both through my speakers and the headphones at the same time?

    I used to be able to do this via my old sound card. I know I can't use the front plugs anymore for my headphones. In the back my new soundcard has several out lines (green black and orange) only the green one seems to work (when putting headphones in that one I hear sound, and when I replace it with my speakers plug I hear sound). Connecting the headphones to for example the black line it does nothing.

    Appreciate any help
    thx!

    Maybe something wrong with the "headphones" jack. It should have a spring contact on the inside which "cuts" the circuit to the speakers when you push a jack-plug into it's socket. If that's not happening, you will get sound through speakers and headphones at same time.

    Either that or you're plugging headphones into the wrong jack.

    Not sure I understand. My actual goal is to get sound through both a the same time. This isn't working at this moment. So how can I change the setting in windows or in the trust software so both generate sound at the same time?
    thx!

    It typically isn't an option. The insertion of the headphones disables the speaker output.
