Recently I changed my operative system from Windows XP to Windows 7 64 bits. After that I cannot get my earphones working when I plugged them in the jack of the front panel. I have a
My motherboard is:
Model GA-M55PLUS-S3G North Bridge NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Revision A2 South Bridge NVIDIA nForce 410/430 MCP Revision A2
so I've updated its drivers int this page. After that when I plug the speakers in the back panel I can see that the jack is detected and the realtek HP program ask me which type of device has been plugged. But when I plug a headphones in the front one nothing is detected (even when the speakers are plugged or not in the back one). I haven't changed nothing in the hardware so it must be a problem of the configuration. When I used XP both work (though if I connected something in the back panel no sound appear in the front one)
I've got it working but with a very weird configuration:
In the RealTek configuration I go to Device advance settings and I select "Silence the device in the back output when the headphones are plugged in the front panel" and in the configuration of the conector (just below Device advance settings) I mark "Disable the detection of the jack in the front panel" and with this configuration I can hear both the speakers in the back jack and the headphones in the front one. It's completely weird!!
