Headphones not working under Windows 7
Posted on 2013-01-24
I currently have a problem with my Dell XPS420 and creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro, running under Windows 7 64bit.
The 7.1 speakers work fine, but If I plug either my Bose QC3 or Grado SR225 headphones into the headphone port on the front of the PC the sound continues to come out of the speakers and nothing goes through the headphones.
If I use the headphone port on the platinum pro box the sound is muted but still nothing comes through the headphones.
I have the 'mute speakers when headphones selected' option enabled using the creative audio console software.
I'm using the latest driver from Creative, which I believe is Windows 7 Compatable.
Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM) 126.96.36.1997 18/03/2010.
If this is a compatability issue then can anybody recommend a top end sound card?
Does anybody any have any comments on the new Soundblaster ZX or ZXR?
Thank you for your assistance in advance.
