L340 does not detect headphones

Q: L340 does not detect headphones

Hi everyoneI bought the L340 laptop today but I can not use any headphones on it. I have tried 3 or 4 different headphones but windows does not detect any of them. I have tried updating my sound drives, uninstalling and reinstalling them but nothing seem to work.I only have this issue with the 3.5mm jack though, I have no trouble using a USB headset.I don't know if this is relevant but the headphone jack doesn't plug all the way although the part that is left out is so small.Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have tried both front and rear inputs and still no success. My PC won't recognize my headphones being plugged in. They're headphones with a USB and 2 jacks (speakers and mic), and when plugged in the green light is active on the headphones showing their working/have power. Changing the connector to a solo jack, I can plug it into my PS4 / iPhone and it works fine. However on my PC it doesn't work, despite it working completely fine for 2 weeks until 2 days ago.

I've tried going to device manager and updating drivers, and I've also tried managing audio settings and making it my default device but the PC is not picking up the headphones exist, even after ticking Show Disabled Devices. In device managers, the headphones aren't under "Sound, video and game controllers", "Audio inputs and outputs", or "Unknown Devices" (as I have no Unknown Devices menu). I do not have RealTek Audio Manager. These are the solutions that worked for most people but not myself.

The events that led to this error was last night I was trying to watch a film but my TV (which is my monitor) speakers weren't working. After updating sound drivers and realising they were for some reason disabled, I re-enabled them and they worked fine. However, disabling them again does not fix the problem. The PC does not pick up the headphones at all, mic or sound. I do believe that it is an issue with the newest drivers I installed after upgrading to Windows 10 three days ago. The headpho...

A:PC won't detect headphones

Ok I just wrote out more information but of course I accidentally backed and deleted it all so I'll summarise it.

I think it's the drivers Windows 10 recommended. Since I upgraded they stopped working. My sound drivers are now:
-NVIDIA High Definition Audio
-NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM)
-VIA HD Audio (Win10) / This is new and potentially the problem.

I can't revert to the old ones as the "Roll back drivers" is grey'd out for whatever reason.

Hey so I have basic understanding of coding and was wondering if there was a way I could set I up so that when my computer detects that headphones have been plugged in, it changes the audio settings.

I am hoping to make it so that when the headphones are in, it plays on the stereo setting and when unplugged it uses 5.1. I have realtek audio manager.

I know that the system sees those changes as something with endpoints but I am not very familiar with C++, having only worked with couple of languages during a short time.

Thanks

A:Detect Headphones/Settings

I thought that is the way it works, without doing anything? The headphone output is two channel stereo. There are 5.1 headphones but they would have to be connected differently or just simulate 5.1 since there is only two channel (stereo) on a headphone jack.

I have a Realtek ALC888 and I'm trying to get the front panel headphones to work as a separate device. Everything is set up correctly in the BIOS, as HD-Audio and I've reinstalled the drivers like 4 times now.

It detects when I plug anything into the front panel, but there is no Windows device that I can use independently from my speakers. The headphones are just a clone of the speakers. My front panel mic is detected and works perfectly, so I'm really confused what is going on.

I can "disable front panel jack detection" in Realtek and my speakers will shut off when I plug into the front panel, but I still don't get a separate device.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've been trying to fix this forever and haven't had any luck at all.

A:Windows won't detect headphones device.

You can stop trying as what you are trying to do isn't possible. If you want to be able to use speakers and headphones independently of each other, you're going to have to get another sound card. or a USB headset that will work independently of the sound card.

I recently got a new computer. a windows 7 x64 bit
When i plug in any headphones (they all work perfectly), windows does not detect them as headphone but as speakers. i can still hear everything fine but the audio is just not right, even my ipod, using the same headphones has more bass and clearer sound. i have tried different steps already but none seem to work. i am no computer wiz so does anybody know what can be wrong?

are you using an audio manager like Realtek? Also what exactly is your sound card info?

I've tried rolling back the driver, updating the driver, reinstalling the driver. I've looked at other threads for solutions with regards to the realtek audio manager with no luck there.

Essentially, one day everything was fine, and the next, when i unplugged my headphones, there was no sound, and there was no popup saying "You just unplugged a audio device." That popup usually happens when I unplug my headphones. I go into Realtek HD audio manager and sure enough, under the Analog panel, when i mouse over the green audio jack, it says "Headphones".

My sound is fine, i can still listen to music with the headphones plugged in, just that when i unplug them physically, my laptop thinks it is still plugged in, so the speakers don't kick in.

The speakers are undamaged, when i boot up, it still plays the POST sound the bios makes before windows kicks in. I'm on a Asus G51J laptop.

I've poked around gently in the headphone jack with a toothpick to try to see if theres anything blocking a connection or something, no luck.

Any ideas on how to get the auto detect to work again? Or maybe even just a registry edit so that I can manually switch between telling the computer my headphones are plugged in and not.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

There are two jacks on the side of my laptop that are used for listening and a third for talking. I have a stardard headset that I bought from Radioshack that has an audio jack for speaking and listening. I plugged the jacks in all correctly but can only speak and can't listen. The audio instead of playing though my headset will play through the speakers! The headset is detected though, under the speakers and headphones category under the playback devices. I have it selected as a default for everything possible but it wont play sound through the headset itself. Occasionally the headset will play sound but this happens at random. And also when I plug the jack for LISTENING into the the 2nd jack for listening, the speakers are automatically muted somehow and I can't hear or play any sound unless I restart my laptop. Again, there are THREE (3) jacks 1: speaking 2: Listening 3: Also for listening. I tried both for listening and nothing happens. It does detect the mic for recording since audacity and skype work with the headset.

A:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit laptop will not detect headphones!

Hello MrNeedsHelpAlot Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Once you hear the speakers muted then you know the right jack for the headphones has been selected and a trip into the Control Panel>Sound section is next. Why? When going to set the sound for headphones the default playback device has to be changed from speakers to headphones and you can right click to test to see if the sound is heard while still in the CP.

You'll this is commonly seen when going to use any messenger or live vioce chat option where the speakers are muted and replaced temporarily by the head set. Simply plugging them in won't get you anywhere on it's own. And one of those two audio jacks is intended for external speakers not headphones apparently and why the speakers are muted on the spot.

Sadly I have a problem which is the DVD slot drive: From what the seller told me, it doesn't come with a DVD drive BUT I can take the thing inside the bay off and put an internal drive. Is it true? If so how do I take it off and what kind of DVD drive can enter in the slot? Thank you really much

Just bought a brand new IdeaPad L340.Its Touchpad is not working properly -It is missing basic gestures; For example "Two-finger tap" = Right click doesn't work, or when I drag a file and my finger reaches the end of the touchpad the file stops dragging instead of continuing to go in the same direction.Two-finger scroll stops working if I scroll slowly and keeps on going if I remove one finger during scrolling. I have done all the basic stuff:1) Windows touchpad settings page has almost no options in it other than "Touchpad sensitivity", so that didn't work2) In device manager, there is absolutely no driver for the touchpad. I updated the rest of the drivers.3) Windows is up to date.4) I ran the Lenovo scan for any new drivers and all the Lenovo drivers and BIOS are up to date.5) Windows helper could not solve this issue. I have absolutely no touchpad control and I am desperate for help.Thank you

I have a Dell Inspiron 12-5378 Signature Edition computer, and I recently bought SkullCandy Crusher headphones. The headphones do not seem to be working and are not even showing up in my playback devices. I'm wondering if there is something that I can do to get them working?
My other question is that the Mic Cable for the SkullCandy headphones is 3.5mm plug which seems to be sticking out a tiny bit when I plug it in. Is it possible that the computer isn't recognizing the device because the plug is too long? I can't seem to find any detailed specs on the headphone jack for this computer. If this is the issue, does anyone have an adapter they recommend?
Is the issue my headphones or the laptop?
Thanks

A:Dell Inspiron 13-5378 Headphones Not Working (with new SkullCandy Crusher headphones)

Hello. Push the plug extra firmly into the jack and see if it can go in the rest of the way.  When it is detected, you should get a popup asking you to select the type of device you are using.
There aren't any detailed specs from Dell about the combo jack, just general information that we pass along on this discussion board. We have been getting reports from owners that the jacks on some late model Dell are tight.

Hi, I recently bought the l340-I5RH (Gaming laptop, 9th gen i5, GTX 1650), and I noticed that the touchpad seems to be pretty bad in a couple different ways. The first thing I noticed was that the touchpad feels sort of "loose", the physical touchpad plate seems to descend slightly even upon light presses that don't trigger a click. Secondly, I'm unable to move the cursor using the touchpad while during any sort of keypress. This is an issue in things like simple games (Obviously, only the type that I would play with a touchpad, using a USB mouse is fine). I looked into it and it seems like an intentional feature, something about accidental palm movement while typing; however, I followed multiple sets of directions in pursuit of disabling, but my device seems to be missing the options set to remove the function.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
