headphones not working?

Specs: Windows Vista
I recently re installed the speaker driver on my laptop as the speakers had stopped working (heaphones wold work at this point) and now the speakers work but not the headphones.

When i go into sound in control panel it shows that the headphones are recognised but the sound just goes through the speakers.

Have i installed the wrong driver or is there anything i can do with the settings so i can use the headphones?

Hi friend,

Usually a headphone has 2 pins(3.5 mm jack). More often they are of different colours, ie., Green (for the speakers) and Red (for the microphone). Check weather you have connected to the respective audio ports.
Even after if you face the same issue, check with the headphone by connecting it to a different Machine.

Thank You :-)
