Is the audio port soldered to the board? If it is, is it possible to replace the board myself (are the parts available for purchase) or do I need to send it in for replacement?

A:Chromebook Thinkpad 13 Audio Jack or Motherboard replacement

It is soldered.
 
It looks like someone could replace the board if they could find the part.  eBay is a common source.  You may be able to find the part number you have here:

I play on a gaming PC so always I use the headset I have to play with others. Before I would have to twist the two plugs (headphones+mic) a bit in order for me to get the message "You have plugged in a headset". Now after switching Power supplies I don't get that message whatsoever. It seems as if those jacks as well as the ones on the back don't work and do not respond. I can't set my headset sound device as my default because it says my headset isn't plugged in. I've tried this for multiple headsets and speakers and have gotten the same results. The USB Jack is fine just those small circle hole jacks that you are supposed to plug in for headsets and speakers. Same Jack like the one on the iPhone. Sorry, I don't know much about computers so it's a bit hard to explain but please help.

Good Evening all !
I received a Fujitsu Siemens Laptop with Windows Vista basic on it, wich had to be reformated. After that, I've installed all drivers, and everything that it suppose to have.

Everything is working perfectly, all the drivers are ok, but the two plug (Mic/Audio) don't work. The computer's speakers work fine, the problem is just with those sockets.

The owner of the PC told me that they were working fine before... !

Hi  Bgeorges,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with the audio jack in your Lenovo Yoga 900 laptop.
 
Connect an earphone and right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar, if the speaker icon is not present on the taskbar go to control panel select sound option. Under this select playback devices and check if the earphone is detected if yes select and click on set default and check.
 
Let us know the result.

Ok, i have an Alienware x51 and the front headphone audio jack has stopped working. I will admit that i tried messing around with the settings on my computer to solve an issue with sound in a game but, this made it worse. 
When i plug in my headphones and do an audio test with Realtek i can hear the sound but it is so low that i have to make the whole room silent to hear it. This also happens with my speakers too and any other device.
If it is a problem with the audio jack and not something to do with settings can i follow up on my warranty? Or does this not come under it? 
I really need help because i am now forced to use the normal sound coming out of my monitor and it is very bad quality. Any help will be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Hi all-I'm hoping this community can help. When I plug in my headphones (just the pair that come with my iPhone), nothing happens. Not a thing. It's like they're not even there. The speakers just keep working, and there is no registration of the headphones even exisiting. 2 days ago, the audio jack/headphones worked like a charm. Now nothing. I've tried a bunch of different video tutorials, but they all assume that the computer detects the headphones. This is not happening. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, and nothing. I've reached the limit of my expertise. Is this a hardware issue? Do I need to take the thing in to get it fixed? Thanks for your help!

The headphones work fine and sound great but no matter what I do it will only pick up the mic that comes installed on the laptop.

This is not a problem if I use the usb port but that is no longer an option since the tracpad has stopped working.

Hello Everyone

Last week I was changing my Graphiccard a few times to test another one and finally installed my old one back in. After I restarted my Computer all rear audio jacks as well as the front audio jacks stopped working. I can safely say, that it is not an issue with my Speakers.

I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek HD Audio drivers numerous times, everytime getting different results. Sometimes the Speakers are not visible at all on the choose audio output screen and sometimes they are, but they never seem to work. My Headset( Connected via USB) and my Monitor speakers( Connected via Dvi to HDMI Cable) work fine. There is also at all times the Realtek Digital Output listed, which I don't know the use of.
Inside the Realtek Audio Manager i can only choose options for the digital Output. When i chose to disable the front jack recognition inside the Manager the speakers would show up, but the test sound didnt give any sound whatsoever. However when plugging in headphones to the front green jack, the speakers started a deep humming sound. I could even control the volume of this sound with my computer volumesettings.

Here the front jacks arent visible because i disabled them, without any progress, in the bios.

I also had a look at the cables connecting the front jacks with the mothereboard and made sure there was no loose contact. The speakers are connected to the green audio jack. The volume on both the speakers and the pc is turned on. Befo... Read more

I got a brand new computer. Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P. Operating system is Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

Brought it home, it installed a .net update and restarted and since then, I've had the infamous RealTek pop-up problem. Keeps telling me something is plugged in then unplugged in the front jack. Repeatedly. And nothing seemed to stop it. So after much troubleshooting and even uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling and even unplugging the front jack all together, I finally gave up an disabled it in the realtek manager so the bubble popups would stop happening. I was much pleased by this as perhaps I could get sound now. I was so wrong.

I plug my speakers into the rear jack and they do nothing but produce noise and static. Thinking maybe the disabling had something to do with it, I re-enabled the front jack but still the same problem. I even told it that the front and rear were separate and to not disable the rear when the front is plugged in (since it seems to want to tell me something is there when it's not). Something I did notice is the fact that when I disabled the front jacks, in the realtek manager, both the audio and mic jacks are highlighted, instead of greyed out like the rear jacks that don't have anything plugged into them. No idea why, but at this point, whatever. lol.

So I'm at a loss here. I have no idea why it's doing what it's doing (other than realtek is obviously not so great). I found other topics on the pop-up problem he... Read more

Hi! This is my second problem with the same Aspire E15 (I posted previously about not being able to disable pinch-zoom on the touchpad). Now the 3.5 audio jack won't work. The first time I plugged in a set of headphones, I got a pop-up asking me to specify if I was using headphones, a microphone or line-in, and I selected headphones. But it didn't work, and the audio continued playing through the speakers. I've tried plugging in several different sets of headphones, and it's the same with all of them. Did I somehow accidentally set the audio jack to mic or line-in? If so, I can't figure out how, and I can't find anything in the system settings that would allow me to change it.I'm assuming that USB headphones would work, but I don't have any and can't really afford the expense right now. It's a brand new computer and I don't understand why some so basic as the headphone jack isn't working. I'm actually really surprised they'd combine the headphone jack with the mic and line-in jacks. Seems like they're overcomplicating something that should be very simple. Can anyone help, please?

My laptop only has one combo audio/microphone jack, and I can't get the microphone to work at all. I just bought a new headset that came with an audio/microphone splitter specifically for the purpose of using it on this laptop. While the output works fine, the microphone input is absolutely ignored.

I am 100% positive this is an audio/microphone splitter (and not just an audio splitter) as it has 3 rings on the end of it (indicating that it is compatible with using a microphone), and one of the input jacks even has a microphone icon on it. Realtek Settings are nowhere to be found in Control Panel, and I couldn't seem to find anything in the system sound settings that would help me either.

I've already spent money on this new headset, so as you can imagine I'm pretty frustrated that this is not working, and I really, really don't want to spend any more money. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I've just installed Windows 7 and was very happy to see all the hardware working, even my Realtek HD Audio sound card, except the front jacks.

On windows XP I could solve this by with the Sound Manager that comes with the realtek drivers, and select the "Disable front panel jack detection" check box. Unfortunately, after installing the Vista drivers, I could not start he Sound Manager app beause it said it worked only on Windows Vista.

So, if someone knows a way I could start the manager or how I could set the "Disable front panel jack detection" by modifying the registry, or ofcourse, any other way to make the front jacks work, please help.

Thanks

I installed it and run it as is and have no problems, everything's working. I don't have to run in compatibility mode or anything. Maybe uninstall it and reinstall

Hello, I'm Artekis. A year ago, sevenforums helped solved my BSOD problem! Now I'm back for help on audio problems.

I recently noticed that the front audio ports of my Windows 7 PC do not work properly. I plugged in both speakers and my headset, and the right side of the speakers do not work as well as the right side of the headset cups.

The back audio ports work perfectly fine for both my headset and speakers. As a result, I can safely say that it's a problem with my front audio ports.

According to the Sound tab, I have VIA HD Audio, which is integrated audio on my ASUS motherboard. There also seems to be NVIDIA High Definition Audio in the sound controllers section of the device manager. According to some people on Sevenforums, it's used if you want to use a HDMI cable to connect audio from my PC to the TV? Is this correct?

So what should I do to get my front audio ports to work? I will gladly provide any information that can help solve my problem.

Thanks,
-Artekis

Edit: Just a little update, but the front audio panel worked perfectly fine from both cups of my headset for a couple of seconds after I restarted my computer. But it quickly switched back to the left cup working only. However, the mic jack in the front doesn't work at all.

Check the front panel connection on the motherboard. Reseat the connection (unplug and then plug back in).
The front panel headphone jack may have developed a problem, which is not uncommon.

I'm running windows vista, with the standard realtek HD audio.
I was playing music and all the sudden it just..stopped playing. Everything is connected securely, and my speakers work if i use the front jack, but the rear jack has stopped working. I need that rear jack, and I'm wondering if its something that can be fixed by a simple driver download, or if i need to buy a brand new audio card.

Driver version: 6.0.1.5657

All the connections are secure
