    Hi, quite a number of people have discussed this or a similar issue on this forum - just search for 'headphones' and you'll see plenty of results. You may find something there that may help you- perhaps you could also check for a reference to your sound card/driver.

    Probably the audio drivers are Microsoft and they do not detect when you plug in the headphones. Try updating to OEM drivers from your notebook's support site.
