I have a dell Inspiron 1121 with Realtek HD audio manager installed on Windows 7. Audio from internal speakers works fine on startup, but when I have headphones plugged in while the computer is off, neither internal speakers or headphones have sound on startup until I re-plug them in. Then they work fine.
RHDAM shows that headphones are plugged in on startup, but no sound. The simple solution is to unplug and then re-plug my headphones, but 6 months of that has started showing damage. I need a software solution to this problem.
