Exactly. Because when I plug them in, it's like I never did at all, because I still hear it perfectly fine through the actual speakers. Nor does anything else show up in the playback devices when I look at the sound stuff, it's just the speakers. If I plug the headphones into the microphone spot, it at least makes "stereo array" or something show up, but obviously still has no effect.

 

I have an Acer Aspire 5750, and it runs Windows 7. I don't know if it's some kind of weird drivers issue or what, because everything I've searched and read about, the headphones volume etc. would at least show up, even if only by show disabled devices or something. This doesn't even show up. And I don't want to just mess around with the drivers willy-nilly, since I have no idea what I'm doing. :P

Hi  Lillielle

 

When you speak of speakers, are these the internal laptop speakers? Look for the headphone icon on the side/front ports of your laptop as this is for both the external speakers and headphone usage. Make sure to insert it properly or wiggle it just slightly and check the sound output from your headphones. If your not using the external speakers and have one available, try checking the audio output from there to check on the difference.

Yes, I mean the internal laptop speakers. I don't have external speakers.

 

Ah. Wiggling it makes it work, for a second anyway. I don't think that can be fixed.

Then it could be a port problem that needs to be soldered as it may have become loose from the motherboard. This is a hardware problem so you might want to take it to someone or a repair shop to take care of that method.
