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.
