I recently purchased a simple speaker system from walmart, the Logitech z313. It is a pair of small desk speakers that plug into a subwoofer and the subwoofer goes to a volume control panel and an audio input jack.


I followed the simple instructions and tried to use my speakers, but no sound came through. I checked my sound devices and levels. They were the default device and all the volumes were 100% and unmuted. I plugged them into my laptop and my brother's computer and they worked fine. I then plugged the jack inyo my front panel and they worked. Now, that may sound like a solution, but it isn't. I need that port for my mic/headset.


I went into the realtek audio manager and saw that my back panel was"greyed out" and I wasn't able to work with it at all (Pic Attached). My audio drivers are up to date and I can't figure out what is wrong.


Any help is appreciated.

If you click on the little wrench on the right does it give you the option to disable front panel detection? Check that box and see if you can use the back jacks.


Edit: After clicking the wrench there should be a small gear in the upper right of the window. Click that.

This can be a problem.  My Lenovo senses where things get plugged in.  I can not have speakers in one jack and headset in the other at the same time.  Does the external speaker system have a head phone jack??  You could use that instead.
