    Speakers playing when headphones are plugged in


    I have an HP laptop with windows 10. When my headphones are plugged in, the speakers are still playing. When I go to sounds, the only device listed is the speakers. How can I silence the speakers when the headphones are plugged in.

    That would be function of your CODEC chip driver, which CODEC chip (sound chip) does your laptop has ? Do you hear sound from headphones at same time ?

    I do not know which chip that I have. How can I find out? Yes, sound comes from my headphones and from the speakers at the same time. One more thing, when I go to control panel and manage devices, the only device that shows up is the speakers.

    I use this small app called AudioSwitch on my PC to switch between Headphones and speakers

    In the past, every time I plugged in my headphones, the speakers would automatically stop playing. I did not change anything, but now the headphones and speakers play at the same time.

    There are many different models of the HP15. Exact model, please.

    If you have Realtek audio, most of the Realtek HD Audio Managers have an option to either turn off speakers when a headset is plugged in or do not turn off the speakers.

    Run the free "Speccy" and it will profile your PC and list what sound you have.

    Maybe if you have The Digital Realtek it does but mine does not.

    Where do I find the exact model? I went to system information and that is what I found. I ran the app and I have Realtek High Definition Audio. The speakers are the default device. The headphones are not listed anywhere.
