I installed an HD 4670 AGP into a Dell Optiplex GX270. The sound works from the speakers which are plugged into the back of the computer. I like to use headphones using the front headphone jack.

When i do this sound comes out of the left headphone speaker and the right computer speaker. So the computer is recognizing the headphones but is splitting the audio between the two.

When i installed the card a new device was installed ATI High Definition Audio Device. I have disabled it and the problem still persists. I have uninstalled it but when i restart the computer it is back.

Any ideas?

Uninstall drivers. When you reinstall drivers, select "custom", navigate through till you get to the driver install page and deselect the audio drivers.

You should still be able to set the motherboard audio to default though without having to uninstall anything. Odd problem as I have installed more than a few 4XXX and 5XXX cards without audio problems like this.

Let us know if the above does not fix your problem. The reason audio drivers are installing is the card likely supports Audio over HDMI.

I uninstalled both the ATI driver and the SoundMax integrated digital audio(which i installed after a fresh install of XP). After i restarted the computer both of them were back on the device manager.

A note: When i started the computer it did not make the Windows XP start noise as it normally does. After a couple seconds the screen flashed black then back to the background. I looked at the device manager and both drivers were still there

I tried with multiple headphones
