Windows 10: Problem with earphone jack and socket....

    Problem with earphone jack and socket....

    Still getting used to Win 10 but due to poorish hearing have always used earphone's with an amplifier on Win7. However on Win 10 the headphone icon by the socket on the side of the laptop (Lenovo G50) looks as though it's blanked off, though there is a thin circle around it which looks as though it needs a different type of jack.

    Or do I need something completely different....?

    Are you saying that you physically have no place to plug earphones in, or when you do plug them in they don't work?

    Thanks, no place to physically plug them in unless I've missed something somewhere....

    Seems odd. Lenovo's web site shows a standard 3.5 mm audio jack, at the same side (right) of the laptop as the optical drive. (It's listed as a combination jack, that can be used with either headphones or a microphone.)

    You don't post which G50 model you have, although I get the impression that all of them have the audio jack.

    If no jack is present, inexpensive USB to audio adapters are available. If you check, search "usb to audio" (without the quotes). You'll get many devices. The least expensive cost a bit more than one UKP.
