    Hey there USMB. I currently need your tech help for those who can solve my problem I'm having.

    Short Summary: Had to do a complete system restore for my desktop computer. Lost everything, had to put everything back on it.

    I had to reinstall Realtek HD Audio Manager and this is where the problem comes in.

    My headphones currently are not being recognized by Realtek. I plug them in, and nothing happens. My speakers work perfect, but the headphones are just not reading as being there despite the fact they're plugged in.

    And before you ask:

    Using Windows XP
    It's a couple years old
    No, it's not on mute.

    So, any ideas?

    Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Pretty sure I don't. Everything is setup as it was before I had to do a system restore. And it worked fine previously.

    The OEM disk that came with the machine that is NOT windows. There are motherboard drivers, soundcard video etc. that should be on that disk.

    Or go to HP and input your model number searching for drivers if you do not have them.

    Also did you check your audio hardware in control panel/system/hardware/device manager.

    Is your audio flagged red or with an excalamation point?

    Nope, nothing flagged red or with a !. There are some red arrows if you go into a little deeper but that looks normal.
