    Mic plugged in, no sound from speakers


    My laptop has a port for a mic/headphone combination. When I plug in the mic, sound does not come from the speakers of my laptop. I can't find a way to prioritize the speakers over the headphones, since they are combined in the audio settings. Is there another way to do this without any addition hardware (e.g. splitter, bluetooth speakers/headphones)? Thanks!

    Audio driver is RealTek HD Audio and I just updated it.

    I know you have just updated the RealTek HD Audio driver but can you please perform the following [ this checks for ANY Problem Device Errors ] . . .

    [1] Goto this TenForums link => Batch Scripts / Programs.
    [2] Goto the heading Find ANY Problem Devices . . .
    [3] Download and Run the .bat file.

    If there are ANY Problem Device Errors it will create a Prob_Devices.txt file on the Desktop!

    [4] Upload the results => How to Upload and Post Screenshots and Files at Ten Forums.

    I hope this helps!

    It says there are no problems. I know there's nothing wrong with my computer, just wondering how to do something when the typical way is not available for my audio system.

    I was afraid of that, needing a splitter. Though I'm still not sure how I can use it to pipe the sound through the laptop's speakers. Another alternative I had considered was purchasing Bluetooth headphones, since that's the way the world seems to be going now.

    Thanks!

    That's true.
    Inserting a jack into mic/headphone combo input, speakers cannot work because of mechanic disconnection.
    As you've mentioned, you need a usb or bluetooth speakers or mic/headphone external device.
