Ok, here's the deal. I'm trying to configure my settings so that I can use earphones to listen to music instead of computer speakers. I am administrator of my computer (but running on a network) and when I go into the Control Panel under "Sounds and Audio devices" I have clicked "Advanced" and found that the "Speaker Setup" list box is grayed over. This doesn't make sense to me as an administrator I should have the option to change this setting from "Desktop stereo speakers" to "Stereo headphones". I have even googled this to see why this is happening but can't seem to find the answer. It's probably an easy question for you guru's out there but I was hoping someone could help me.

Thanks so much-

Does the audio card appear in the Device Manager? In the Sound and Audio Device in the Control Panel, does it list your audio card? Is this a new evernt, inother word did it work till recently then stop?

You mentioned google searching, MarinaIrene, and that represents the number one technique
most of use to track down answers to pass along.


These may not immediately solve the problem,
but might be food for thought and help to a degree. :thumbsup:

Hey guys - Thanks for the responses. I'll look into it this weekend and get back to you all (unfortunately I'm not near that computer!)
