Specs: Windows 7
Hi, my laptop is Lenovo B590. When I plug in the headphones, the computer speakers still play. I was trying to go to
Control Panel>RealTek HD Audio Manager>Speakers (tab), but when I right-click my headphone input ( it is black after I plug in the headphones), nothing happens. Anyone help, please?
Thanks!

Try installing the latest drivers from Lenovo's website. I had a friend who had the same problem with his Dell. He installed the newest drivers and it fixed the issue.

"When I plug in the headphones, the computer speakers still play"

That sounds like a hardware problem. The headphone plug should auto-disable the speakers. Are you sure you're plugging it in all the way? Do you have a different pair of headphones you can try? or a set of external speakers that can be plugged into the headphone jack?

Yes, I tried two sets of headphones, and they are plugged properly
