Did you go to the Control Panel - Sound - Click Head Phones - Properties
- At the bottom does it say = use this devise (enable)
If you have to select enable than click APPLY

You can go to the Control Panel - System - Device Manager -
Sounds Video and Game Controler - properties - To see if this device is working
OK
You may need to update your sound drivers but first do this.

Start - Control Panel - Sound - Playback Tab - On this new page put your
cursor on an empty place and right click it - Put a check mark for -
Show disconnected devices.
If your head phones show up, click it and go to properties and enable it.
