Hi, looking forward to belonging to this great site.

 

I have a pair of headphones that belonged to a friend, they worked ok on his PC using Vista but I can't get them to work on either my PC or my laptop both using Win 7.

 

They are the double pin conecction type.

 

I've played with the settings, default device etc,

The red/white audio setup would only work with a sound card, right? I don't think those would work with integrated audio. If you're using a sound card maybe a driver update would help.

Appears to be up to date.

 

You could be right about the headphones being out of date.

I'm asking this because I don't know... are these headphones used for Environmental Audio (aka 3D audio)?

 

Reason I ask is that if you are trying to do a 3.1 or 5.1 audio setup then I think you will need a discrete audio card.

But if you just want to use then as ordinary stereo then you can get an adapter that will adapt 2 plugs down to one, then you can just plug it into the Audio Out jack on the back of the PC.

I'm not sure of the status you mention but the audio jack at the back is already used by the speakers for the PC.

Something to think about though.

Your PC doesn't have headphone and mic jacks on the front?

Where were you planning on using these headphones?

No, there are jacks at the front as well.

They work fine for my camera/mike set up but don't recognise these particular headphones.
