Not sure what happened. Yesterday, I tried to switch outputs from the OE sound card to one that I added. Speakers worked fine, but the front headphone jack quit working. However, when I switched the settings back, then they began working, again. Now, today, nothing's been touched, but the front headphone jack is not working. Any thoughts or ideas? It's an EMachines PC, unsure of exact model, but about 5 years old, w/the 160gb harddrive.

Thanks.

Hello,

Did you install drivers for the new sound card you added? It is most likely a driver conflict.

There should be a setting usually Speakers and Headphones to be set or enabled as default on playback devices.

The sound card has been in the computer for awhile; I had added the drivers when I installed it.

It sounds like the headphone jack is connected to the old sound card and not the new one.

I think it is, though I'm back to using the old sound card, but still no headphone sounds.

I'm not certain but don't you have to have a card that supports audio to the front panel and hard wire from the new card to the panel? The working/not working may simply have been due to messing around between the two cards. All the time the front panel has been connected to the old card?

Edit: Follow the wires back from the front panel and see what they are connected to.
