I have DELL Inspiron N5110 laptop. Using windows 8. Recently I got an issue:

The problem is, when I insert headphones and microphone into laptop, I get only microphone inserted notification. Laptop detects microphone

But no headphones. In fact, It mutes sound from it's speakers. But no sound from headphones too:

I tested headphones separately: they're working well.

I also, reinstalled windows default sound drivers and IDT High Definition Audio drivers several times. No success! The final decision is: There is no sound from headphone jack in laptop. Any suggestions?
