I have a Compaq Presario V3000 (approximately 4 years old) running Windows XP SP3. When I plug in the headphones, I assume the laptop speakers should be muted. This does not happen.

I have conducted some research and discovered that this Presario model was apparently designed to specifically run Windows Vista and running XP interferes with the muting facility.

Would anyone know how this problem may be solved (without resorting to buying Vista)?

Thank you.

Windows Vista and running XP interferes with the muting facility.

The laptop can be run with either OS. Did you checked the Control Panel - System and Sound - Speaker/Audio output?

Thank you for your quick response.

As far as I am aware, I've checked all applicable settings in the control panel. Whatever changes I make to audio settings it applies itself to both internal speakers and headphones equally.

Cheers

There is usually only one audio output port for headphones and speakers, so its either there is a hardware problem or just a settings needed to be changed. If reinstalling the audio driver would not resolved this, its either the port or using another 3.5 mm jack device would help resolving the problem.
