    Welcome to the Windows 8 forum.

    Unfortunately you didn't fill in the "My System Specs" so we don't know what hardware we are dealing with (and which version of Windows 8).


    Some PC sound chips, such as RealTek, have an option on whether to mute or not mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in. See screenshot below on the RealTek HD Audio Manager and the option that it has.

    Besides what fireberd said, you can also try compressed air can into the phone jack. Could be dust critters in there messing with the connections.

Hi friends, I am using Windows 8. I am facing an issue with my sound all on a sudden. The volume icon on the task bar has a red cross on it. When I hover on that it says 'No speakers or headphones plugged in' (attachment-1). When I click on the icon I get a screen like attachment-2 which...
Hello, this is really strange. Whenever I unplug the speakers jack and plug in the headphones, the sound stops! I have to restart the application or run another one and then the sound is back. This is really silly and takes time especially when you need to restart some game. Why does it happen and...

I have 2 speakers plugged in on m motherboards audio jacks, and my G110 keyboard has sound card of it's own built in. I was wondering if there was any way to set it up the way I want it, or something similar to it. The keyboard has a headphone mute button of its own. So I was thinking that I...
