i just bought this laptop 3 days ago.
the speakers are ok but when i attempted to listen to music using a headset, it is not working! i went to the sounds portion in control panel to check if my headset is working. it says that it is working. to further check it, i used the "test" option of the computer. i heard the beeping sound on my left and right ears. but when i attempt to listen to music and watch videos, only the speakers are workin, NOT my headset.
please do help me. i really don't know what to do.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I believe u have Vista.
It looks like your headphones need to be set to be the default playback device because ur speakers are still playing the audio.
In Vista on the bottom right corner next to ur clock there's a white speaker icon, rightclick it choose Playback Device and u'll see the window come up in the middle.
Normally for speakers it should be set to Speakers with the green check mark.
If there's a category for Headphones or USB Headphones and says working then u need to rightclick on your headphones and choose Set As Default Playback Device, then apply, ok and restart the computer.

yes, i am using vista right now. and it is just my first time to use it. so that's why. i'm quite embarrassed as it had a very simple solution and i was so clueless. anyway, thank you once again!
