HI, I received a windows 10 Asus laptop with a headphone jack plug broken in the socket. I could not get it out so I drilled it. Surprisingly the socket now works fine when a headphone is plugged in. However there is no sound from the laptop speakers with Windows 10 or Linux, It's almost as though both Windows and Linux think a headphone jack is still plugged in and that might be why sound is not being directed to the speakers.

 

A USB headphone also works fine.

 

I'm tempted to remove the audio socket from the motherboard to see if that directs the sound to the speakers but that's a bit time consuming and it seem very likely it wont work.

 

I ran the Windows audio trouble shooter and in the end it said that the generic audio driver was not fixed

So I installed the drivers for the Generic audio driver - but with no change. It's still not fixed according to the Windows 10 audio troubleshooter.

 

I also updated the other sound card drivers

 

Should I remove the jack socket or is there some registry setting I can test? Bearing in mind that Linux has the same problem with this laptop.

Seems that you are not alone with this issue.

Thanks that was a very useful page.

 

I checked sound settings in the control panel and in HD audio manager. On double clicking the Analogue device icon there was an option to choose The current connected device - "which device did you plug in"

 

Headphone was checked so I changed it to Mic In (there's nothing plugged in) and now I have sound to the speakers.

 

Awesome. Thanks
