Hi guys

i installed windwos7 recently and ever since it's disabled the headphone jack for some reason. the internal speak works like it ever did, but plugging in headphones no longer works.

Is your headset usb? If so, then that's a common error with installing win 7 on an older motherboard.

Two solutions:
1. Go to control panel and switch sound from speakers to headphones.
2. Download virtual audio cable to allow you to run both speakers and headphones at the same time.

Not sure. I know that's an option. Maybe try install the win 7 drivers for your headphones (if they have it)?

Whoot! This is literally the first bit of hardware advice I gave that worked.
