    No Audio coming from speakers and headset at the same time


    Hello,

    I just bought a new pc and received it today, and i plugged my headset in to check if i hear audio from both speakers and headset but its not working. When i plug my headset in i only hear audio from my headset and not the speakers. Ive been googling and found something about it but with the newest realtek hd audio i dont have the Playback Device there, only the Recording Device. In this picture it has both the playback and recording device.

    In the Playback Device section of the panel you have displayed. Check the Make front and rear output devices playback tow different audio streams simultaneously and see if that does it for you.

    The usual default mode on PC sound cards is to mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in.

    You haven't stated what your new PC is. Some PC vendors will customize the audio for whatever they want. I would first check with the PC vendor for any updated sound drivers.

    No guarantee but the direct from RealTek, IF THAT is what your sound hardware is, should install the panel you show with the correct options. But, first check with the PC vendor.

    Download the HD Audio Codecs, for either 32 bit OS or 64 bit OS -whichever is appropriate for your system.

    PC Vendor would be something like ASUS, HP, Dell, etc and the model number. If you fill in the "My System Specs" we will get all the info. Helps us help you.

    As I noted, no guarantees, but install the Realtek driver I have linked and see if that gets you what you want.
