Realtek help

by Scaz50 / September 3, 2008 10:06 PM PDT

Hi All,

I wonder if anyone can help? My Gigabyte technologies Realtek application no longer recognises when I plug my headphones into the front port. Annoyingly, for no apparent reason, the application fires up and tells me that I have plugged something into the audio jacks. This seems to happen randomly. I am on version

I look forward to your responses.

I should also add, my speakers work just fine (they are plugged into the real USB). previously, when I plugged my headphones into the audio jacks it would cancel sound to the speakers and run it through the headphones. This no loger happens.

That area of Windows has been less than reliable. Maybe, someday, someone will wake up and fix this thing. No, I have yet to see this work well all the time for say a year after you take the PC out of the packing box.
